Things to Focus on for a Move Out Cleaning

by Maid Just Right Team - August 20, 2017

Here at Maid Just Right we offer a dedicated and professional move out cleaning service for our clients. This is designed for properties that have reached the end of a tenancy and need to be ready for either selling or for some new tenants to move in.

These particular types of cleans require focus on particular areas, but what are these areas and why are they important? Let’s take a look on the things that we think are important to focus on for move out cleaning.

The Kitchen

As a busy area of the house, the kitchen is often the place that can get a little grubby over time. Which means that it is a good idea to focus a fair amount of time to making it look sparkling again. You will need to clean out any cabinets and even take out the drawers and give them a wipe down too. You should also think about the appliances too giving the microwave, oven and fridge a thorough clean, pulling them out and cleaning inside if needed.


Another room that can get a bit messy and grubby over time is the bathroom. You will want to scrub down the shower and make sure that any tiled areas are washed down with bleach (don’t forget to give the grout a good scrub too). Any mirrors are going to need a clean and polish to make sure that they are shining and if you have a fan, then make sure that this is free of dust.


It is easy to forget about the outside areas of your home during a moving out clean, but this is another area that you should take a look at. You will need to remove any weeds and make sure the grass is cut, and if the patio or concrete is looking past its best, then it may make sense to give this a scrub down.

Anywhere else?

It is important that you give the entire house a vacuum before you move out, this includes corners, hidden areas and the stairs. Not only this but you should also make an effort to wipe down the baseboards and walls too. Removing any marks, stains or cobwebs that may be lurking around. If you have curtains then these will need to be taken down and washed and blinds can have a rub down to make sure they are clean!
