Moving is a real hassle. Even if you are looking forward to moving the process is time consuming and stressful. As if buying a home or finding a new apartment weren’t enough, you’ll also need to pack up everything you own. Moving is also expensive. You’ll need to cover your down payment or deposit and first month’s rent. Some might consider a move out cleaning to simply be part of the expected cost of relocating. But if you live on a tight budget, doing a DIY move out cleaning seems like a great way to save some money. Here’s a few reasons you might want to reconsider.
Time Is Money When it Comes to Move Out Cleaning
Moving to a new home rarely happens at a convenient time. Even if you plan it perfectly there will always be other things that also need your time and attention. Finding the balance between work and family is difficult enough as it is without also throwing packing into the mix. And by the time everything is ready to go, the last thing you are going to want to do is spend several hours cleaning. Hiring a professional move out cleaning service ensures you have more time for the important things during your move. It is important to take time for yourself and your family when going through a big life event. Taking time for a much needed break or catching up with friends can make your move a lot less stressful. If you are less stressed, the packing will take less time and get you out of your old place sooner. So save yourself some hassle and get your move done faster by hiring a move out cleaning service.
Save On Supplies
There are several different types of surfaces in your home that will need cleaning before you move. Many of which are surfaces we don’t often get around to cleaning. Finding the right product for the job might take some trial and error, and that gets expensive. Professional cleaning technicians like the ones at MaidLuxe receive training on how to clean these surfaces properly and efficiently. They will also come armed with the right tools for the job. So no last minute trips to the store for pricey cleaning products you aren’t certain will work.
Avoid Costly Repairs
Many surfaces in your home may also be easily damaged if cleaned with the wrong products. Even the right products can damage surfaces if not used correctly. Last minute repairs or replacements can really strain an already tight budget. Hiring a professional move out cleaning service ensures the job gets done right. In the unlikely event that something gets damaged, the cleaning company will be responsible for the repair.
Sell Your Home Faster
Real estate agents know that a professionally cleaned home will sell faster than a DIY cleaned home. But why? When a potential buyer does a walk through, the first thing you want them to see is their future living in that space. Smudged walls and dirty baseboards will distract buyers from daydreaming about your home. Even if you have a weekly cleaning service, there are messes in your home that are easily overlooked. The air vent covers need scrubbing, fan blades wiped down, windows polished inside and out. Under the sinks, tops and insides of cupboards, even the outsides of large appliances should all get a thorough cleaning before you move. When you are busy with life and family, it’s easy to forget to clean these areas as often as they should be. While these messes are easily overlooked when you live in the space, they are obvious to others. You can be sure they’re the first things a potential buyer will notice about your home. During a professional move out cleaning, your home will get a thorough, top to bottom deep clean. Your professionally trained technicians will ensure nothing gets overlooked.
Get Your Deposit Back After a Good Move Out Cleaning
When you signed the lease for your home or apartment, you had to put down a security deposit. This deposit is an insurance policy for the landlord. It ensures the landlord has money to cover the cost of any cleaning or repairs the property might need after you move out. Moving can be an expensive process. If you are buying a house you’ll have to cover a down payment. If you are renting again, you will need to cover your deposit and first month of rent. Getting the deposit back on your old place can help you cover these costs. Hiring a professional move out cleaning service guarantees the property looks its best. It is the most cost effective way to ensure you get back as much of your deposit as possible.
Avoid Additional Charges
If you chose to DIY your move out cleaning it could end up costing you a lot of money. Moving is stressful and cleaning often comes down to the last minute. Inevitably, you’ll overlook something or even damage something in the process. Your deposit should cover the cost of any cleaning or repairs your landlord will need to complete before the next tenant moves in. Unfortunately, sometimes the cost of repairs is more than your deposit. If this happens, your landlord may file a claim against you to cover the difference. You can certainly choose to settle out of court and just pay the difference. But if you choose to fight the claims, that means taking the complaint to small claims court. If the judge rules in favor of your landlord, you’ll end up owing much more than the cost of a professional cleaning. Hiring a professional move out cleaning can help you avoid such a situation.
