Moving-Out Cleaning


Move In and Move Out Cleaning

Moving out of your current home is a huge challenge. Between running errands, work and personal life to handle, the last thing you should be worrying about is deep scrubbing your floors or scrubbing your range hood and removing grease from the filters before you move out.


It’s a real drain on all of us. If you rent, it can be even more frustrating.


Every crumb left or speck of dust might irk your property manager just enough to not return your security deposit. It’s one of those weird moments in life where being tidy could literally be worth $1,000+ depending on rental deposits.


That’s where James found himself a few months ago. Trying to move, work, and clean his former apartment. It’s funny sometimes how little credit we give ourselves as people. We work full time jobs, take care of ourselves and those we love, care, love, serve. And somehow in the midst of that we uproot our lives and move. It’s a lot.


James contacted us on incredibly short notice. His place was nearly empty but he didn’t have the bandwidth to get it over the finish line. With a security deposit on the line, he called us. We tailored our service to James. That’s what we do. We have cleaning packages and standards but if you tell us you need something special, we’ll do everything we can to make it happen.


In James’ case we called before we arrived so he could leave work and let Reina in to clean. On top of that, James knew that his carpets needed some TLC. So we scheduled a carpet cleaning with Don, our carpet cleaner. Reina dusted, swept, vacuumed, polished, and set things in order. Don set to work and made sure the carpets were spick and span.


That’s what we do. We are more than a house cleaning service. Above all, we are in the people service industry. A friend of mine works for a large company in Florida. He has shared with me a few times that the core of his company’s mission isn’t their product, it’s serving others. Their slogan is literally “where shopping is a pleasure.” It’s about more than just products and services. It’s about seeing each other as people and working together for our collective good.


James was more than pleased and gave us a five star review. We are grateful for his kind words and acknowledgment of our special and peculiar way of doing business.


What is a Move Out Cleaning Service?

This is one of Dallas Maids’ cleaning services where our mission is to leave your home looking clean and sanitized after you have moved out.


It shares many similarities with the move-in cleaning service! If you feel a move-in cleaning fits your needs better, check it out here.


It has a deeper approach than standard or even deep cleaning. Because your home has no furniture at this point, it means you can see clearly all the little spots and stains from corners you haven’t cleaned in years.


It is very common practice (and even part of a legal agreement) to get your home professionally cleaned after moving, especially if you were a tenant.


Besides, if you are moving, you are probably not going to have the highest motivation to deep clean your home on your own and spend all that time and energy for someting you are not even going to enjoy.


With Dallas Maids’ move-out cleaning service, you can let our cleaning artists take care of every surface while you continue your moving process.

Dallas Maids Move-Out Cleaning Process

Like we mentioned above, the move-out cleaning process will take care of pretty much all surfaces you can think of: countertops, shelves, floors and walls as well as other surfaces and components that tend to be ignored, like your light fixtures.


Here is our entire Move-out Cleaning list:

Kitchen and Eating Area Cleaning

Besides the standard process (cleaning your countertops, your sink, the outside of your range hood, as well as dusting and removing cobwebs) this type of service also includes many more tasks to leave your kitchen spotless, which are:


  • Inside of range hood cleaned
  • Grease filter cleaned
  • Drip pans cleaned
  • Countertops cleaned
  • Sinks cleaned and disinfected, chrome shined
  • Microwave wiped out
  • Doors and frames spot cleaned for fingerprints
  • Appliances inside/out cleaned and shined
  • Outside/Inside of cabinets cleaned
  • Baseboards wiped
  • All kitchen furniture hand wiped
  • Floors vacuumed and mopped
  • Cleaned ceiling fans & light fixture


As you can see, an empty home allows for reaching many more areas, such as the inside of cabinets and your range hood as well as the drip filters and the light fixtures.

Bathroom Cleaning

Your bathroom will look like brand new after we give it a good rundown. The additional cleaning tasks include:


  • Tile grout scrubbed
  • Mildew chemically treated
  • Tile walls, bathtubs, and showers cleaned and disinfected
  • Vanity and sink cleaned and disinfected
  • Toilets cleaned and disinfected
  • Shower door given extra attention
  • Spot clean doors and door frames for fingerprints
  • Mirrors and chrome fixtures cleaned and shined
  • Inside/Outside of cabinets cleaned
  • Baseboards wiped
  • Cobwebs removed
  • Extra attention to floors
  • Clean ceiling fans & light fixtures

Sleeping and Living Area Cleaning

In this case, if you check our checklist for standard cleaning, you might notice that the list here is actually smaller. If you think about it it makes perfect sense. Because the house is empty, a move out cleaning will focus on cleaning all surfaces and elements that are fixed in your home but that are not cleaned regularly.

This cleaning service includes:


  • Doors and frames spot cleaned for fingerprints
  • Windowsills and ledges damp wiped
  • Baseboards wiped
  • Cleaned ceiling fans & light fixture
  • Carpet edges vacuumed
  • Mini blinds dusted
  • Cobwebs removed

Want us to clean addition areas ?

If there is an area or surface that you wanted to have cleaned and you don’t see it on the list, no worries! Just check if there is available in the “extras” section in our booking process, or contact us!


If you have a special request that we are not able to deliver, we will recommend a partner to contact. Many maintenance and specialized cleaning companies are more suitable for certain jobs, and we lob to support and share recommend fellow businesses!

How to Prepare for a Move-Out Cleaning Service

Interested in talking to us more about a move out cleaning? Click the “book now” button below and choose the “Move Out” under “Select Extra” or the “call us now” button. We’ll do everything we can to make sure your home is as clean as you have ever seen it.


Move out cleanings are different from most others because your home/apartment is empty. For this type of deep cleaning, we will need to be able to move around without furniture, boxes, or other knick knacks getting in the way.


With that in mind, we ask our customers to make sure their home is empty. If you have a box or two left just let us know and we’ll work around them. Of course, the garage is an option too for storage.


You just need to let us know when you need to be off/out of the residence and we will work with you on the right time to come clean your old digs. Either way, we are ready to take one less thing off your plate so you can get back to your life a little quicker once the moving frenzy ends.


Make sure you still have access to your home! You don’t even need to be present at the time of cleaning, but you do need to hide a spare key in the premises for our cleaners to be able to enter and then leave after they have worked their magic. You can also get a key lock box and let us know the combination.


Finally, please ensure water and electricity is still on otherwise we won’t be able to clean! Our cleaning crews need electricity to power their vacuums and have light to see while water is essential for the wet jobs of scrubbing tubs/showers and mopping the floors.

The Benefits of Hiring a Move-Out Cleaning Service

There are many benefits of hiring a cleaning service, no matter if it’s a one-time deal or a scheduled, regular service.


And if you are moving out, you will see right away how a cleaning service might help you in this situation. You will get to focus on a smooth moving process and leave your home looking pristine for new guests/owners.


And if you want a cleaning service once you are settled into your new home, you might want to check out our standard and deep cleaning service, or even a one-time service for special events.
