Move-In & Move-Out Cleaning FAQs

How much does move-out cleaning cost?

The cost of move-out cleaning depends on a few things: the size of your place, how dirty it is, and any extra services you need (like oven cleaning). Sophia’s isn’t your average maid service, we offer competitive rates and can give you a free quote based on your needs.

Are tenants responsible for home cleaning when moving out?

Yep, tenants are usually on the hook for leaving a clean and tidy place. If you don’t, you might lose some of your security deposit. Hiring professional move-out cleaners can help ensure you get your full deposit back by making sure the place is sparkling clean.

What’s included in a move-out house cleaning service?

We tackle all the rooms in your property, including the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, and living room. Likewise, we’ll ensure your entryway, mudroom, hallways, stairways, laundry rooms, basement, dining room, and family room is move-in ready. Accordingly, we’ll dust, vacuum, mop, and sanitize all the high-touch surfaces. Need extras like indoor window washing? We can add that on too.

What about move-in cleaning? What’s included?

A move-in clean gives your new place a thorough going-over to make sure it’s fresh and move-in ready. This includes performing a deep cleaning of all the rooms in your home, apartment, or condo. In addition, we’ll dust, vacuum, mop, sanitize surfaces, and focus on those high-touch areas. Similar to move-out cleanings, you can add on services like window cleaning if needed.

How long will the move-out cleaning take?

The time it takes depends on the size and condition of your place. The more bedrooms and bathrooms, or if you have pets, can add some time. Our experienced cleaners work quickly but thoroughly, and we can give you an estimated timeframe based on your specific situation.

Moving doesn’t have to be a cleaning nightmare!

Our professional move-in and move-out cleaning services in Chicago can help ensure a smooth transition. Our experienced team will leave your old place sparkling clean, maximizing your chances of getting your security deposit back. And your new place?
