Move-In Cleaning Services

Moving to a new neighborhood or a new city can be quite a challenge. Thankfully, there is plenty of help to get the job done more quickly, from local realtors to packing and moving services. But did you know you can also hire a move-in cleaning service to get your new place sparkling clean and ready for your family?

The best time to have your new home professionally cleaned is before you move in. Our home cleaning service cleans up before you get there, so your new home will sparkle and be a healthier place to live. You have enough stress as it is, so do you really want to do a move-in cleaning as soon as you arrive? Save your energy for unpacking, and let us give your new home a move-in deep cleaning.

Here's how we protect you and our team members while providing a superior move-in cleaning:

  • We use EPA-approved disinfectants that kill viruses, including Coronavirus.
  • We use disinfected buckets, mops, vacuums, and other cleaning tools. 
  • Cleaning team members are screened daily and wear PPE.
  • Our contactless move-in cleaning service means you have no contact with our team members.

You're going to love moving into a freshly cleaned and healthy home at the end of your move. The Maids gets your home sparkling clean by removing more dirt, dust, germs, and allergens than conventional residential cleaners. That's because we are the only move-in cleaning service to specialize in cleaning for health.

We use commercial-grade vacuums with HEPA filtration that can capture up to 99 percent of airborne contaminants. Our microfiber cloths help remove dirt and dust instead of just moving it around. We also help minimize the presence of viruses using our powerful disinfecting processes.

We also bring along some extra firepower for those tough-to-clean areas. The Maids is proud to be the exclusive partner of a legend in cleaning, Mr. Clean. When you combine the cleaning power of Mr. Clean and the health-focused approach to cleaning of The Maids, you get a move-in cleaning service like no other.

Why Choose a Move-In Cleaning Service Focused on Health?


We all know that just because something looks clean and smells fresh doesn't mean it's necessarily healthy. Odors are easy to mask and dirt is obvious, but viruses and bacteria are invisible so you can never be sure — or can you? The Maids believes the very best move-in cleaning means removing dirt, dust, and other pollutants while disinfecting to kill germs.

We reduce airborne contaminants like pet dander, pollen, dust mites, mold, and a whole lot of other pollutants so your family can breathe easier. The Maids also disinfects commonly touched areas like switchplates, doorknobs, cabinet pulls, and more to help prevent the spread of germs. Cleaner indoor air and surfaces mean the potential for fewer allergy and asthma issues, fewer common colds, and reduced chances of catching viruses.

When your new house is professionally cleaned and sanitized, your family just breathes easier. Whether it's our proprietary methods for reducing indoor contaminants or our attention to the details for minimizing germs, you can count on a healthier environment in your home. The choice is obvious — the move-in cleaning service your new home and family deserve is one that creates a cleaner and healthier place to live.

The Maids will handle the final cleanup in your new place and get it move-in ready with our move-in cleaning service. To ensure we customize our services to best meet your needs, these are some of the factors we consider to determine move-in cleaning cost:

  • Should You Get Your House Cleaned Before Moving In?

    Cleaning a residence between occupants is something many home sellers and landlords do.

Things you can’t see or smell like dirt in out-of-the-way places, viruses, and bacteria can be left behind. Your new home may look ready to move in, but if you want a fresh, healthy start, leave it to The Maids.

  • How Long Does an Apartment Move-In Cleaning Take?

    The size of your home, the types of interior surfaces and floors, and the home's current condition will determine how long it takes to get it move-in ready. Our team cleaning approach ensures a thorough, efficient cleaning every time. We follow proven strategies for getting in, tidying up, and getting out of the way so you can get settled. While each new home is different, our teams typically clean an average of 1,000 square feet of living space per hour.
