When the move-out date looms near, we can feel increasing anxiety and stress at the thought of leaving our rentals how we found them. If you have not kept up with your maintenance cleaning, it can feel like cleaning is an insurmountable task, but it isn’t. The best way to tackle moving out is to make a list. Here is what you should include in a move-out cleaning checklist.

Dust Away

Dust can easily accumulate on every surface in your rental that you don’t clean regularly—this includes areas you don’t pay attention to, like baseboards, walls, and ceiling fans. As such, you should give every surface a dusting—you can do this either with a duster or a dry rag.

Wipe It All Down

Once you have dusted every surface, you should then wipe everything down—this is one of the most important things to include in your move-out cleaning checklist. You might think that dusting is all you need to do, but that just helps prime your surfaces for a wipe-down. Wiping down your walls, baseboards, fans, and every flat surface will help clean stains that dusting didn’t reach.

Deep Clean

If you want to increase the chances of getting your deposit back, you must deep clean everything. The areas you want to focus on the most when deep cleaning are your sinks, showers, tubs, and toilets. Yes, cleaning these areas can drain your energy, take hours, and is a bother, which is why we are here to help you streamline the process.

Sweep, Vacuum, Mop

When cleaning, you can’t forget the ultimate trio—sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping. Once you have dusted, wiped, and deep cleaned every area of your apartment or rental home, you must then look to the floor. Sweep any hard surfaces and give them a mop, then finish off with a quick vacuum of any carpeted areas, spot cleaning stains along the way. Thankfully, cleaning the floors is one of the last things you will do before shutting the doors for good and turning in the keys, but it is a must you can’t disregard.The body content of your post goes here.
