Empty Whole House Cleaning

When you think about house cleaning, you may think that cleaning an occupied home would take more time. However, many times this is not the case. When you are switching places, you should do a move in-move out cleaning which is a detailed cleaning that takes longer than a regular cleaning because there are many areas and surfaces that are not usually cleaned.  Steamex offers the perfect local cleaning service for move in-move out cleaning.

Why does cleaning an empty house take a longer amount of time?

Standard professional house cleaning can take only a few hours at the most when is performed on a regular basis. Weekly, biweekly, and/or monthly cleanings assure that the items and surfaces you are constantly in touch are properly maintained. There are many areas of your home that is not cleaned on a regular maintenance cleaning. Shelves in the kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, pantries and laundry rooms, drawers, under the sinks, shelves inside closets, and the detailed cleaning of light fixtures and air registers.

Regular house cleanings can help keep your home free from dirt, dust, and bacteria. However, during the time that you live in one home, the amount of dirt, grime and build up can increase in those areas that are not cleaned regularly. There are many areas that most people forget about or just do not think they need to clean. This allows your home to collect a layer of dust, which can make you sick from the bacteria that live in the dirt and dust. For people with allergies, this can make their symptoms worse over time.  Without any furniture and appliances in your home, more areas were not cleaned before and need to be deep cleaned to make sure that the new tenants will get a sparkling clean house. 

Why is a move in-move out cleaning so important? 

There are many reasons why move in-move out cleanings are important. Some people want to have it done after they move out so they receive their deposit back. Some others want to get some extra money for their home. However, these should not be the only reasons why scheduling a move in-move out is so essential. A move in-move out is also a vital part of the home buying process, killing off bacteria that resides in the home you just have bought might help to prevent unwanted circumstances.

Move in-move out cleanings are essential when you are switching places, the amount of time these type of cleaning take will depend on size and condition of the house, hence the money spend needs to be seen as an investment. However, no matter if you are renting, selling or buying there is no better feeling than welcoming new tenants with a beautifully clean home.
