Residential Clean Outs
This is what typically happens when a house is sold:
NYS law states that a house needs to be “broom swept” at closing. “Broom swept” means different things to people, but the homeowner is often busy with the actual “moving” that cleaning the house become a difficult “chore”. Thus, the house is generally wiped down without real cleaning. The new owner, however, doesn’t really know what the previous owner did or didn’t do-perhaps things might look clean, but are they really clean? So the new owner often spends precious time and money to clean the entire house before moving in. We can save both sellers and buyers time and money by taking away the responsibility of cleaning. Fees vary depending on the size and condition of each home, and fees can be paid at closing if more convenient. Please call us for a free quote.
This is a typical list of what will be done in a house for a new homeowner:
Fully clean inside and outside, pulling out unit to clean behind and under, polishing stainless steel as necessary
Clean inside of oven and the stovetop, removing all grease and dirt, clean stove-top grates, polishing stainless steel as necessary
Clean inside and outside of all cabinets and drawers, removing dirt and grease, removing old shelf-liner if desired (and if possible…). New shelf liner can be installed if desired and supplied by the new homeowner. Concentrate on the corners so that the new owner can simply unpack and put dishes away.

Clean inside and outside of microwave, especially in corners
