Moving can be one of the more stressful experiences one can have. Beyond actually finding your new home in suburban Chicago, your to-do list still includes a ton of important items such as setting up utilities, packing up your things, and hiring a moving truck or movers at the very least– just thinking about it gives me anxiety.
Then, once your entire life is packed up and moved out of your old space, you still have to conduct a move out cleaning. As someone who has moved way too many times to count, I know this is the last thing you want to do after a long day of moving!
As daunting as it may seem, that move out cleaning is often an important step to ensure you get your security deposit back or at least aren’t responsible for additional fees. All in all, the process can be pretty overwhelming, not to mention totally exhausting!
Leave Your Old Home Glowing with a Great Move Out Cleaning
When preparing for that final house cleaning, it’s important to get a sense of what your landlord’s requirements are. Should you leave the old home in “broom clean” condition or is a deep cleaning required? In general, most landlords and management companies expect that you’ll leave your old home in the same condition it was in when you first moved in, in order to prepare it for the new tenants.
In addition, landlords and management companies have the right to withhold all or part of your security deposit if the home is left dirty, dusty, or in disarray. Ensure you’re able to get that deposit back and invest in a cleaning service!

Now, What About Your New Home?
Moving into a new house is a great opportunity to start fresh.

Do you trust that the previous tenants took as much care to clean as you did when moving out of your last place? Do you know if they disinfected every surface and scrubbed every nook and cranny?
