Moving in is (almost) always a positive experience, but it is also stressful and keeps you with a lot on your plate all the time, even after you’ve moved successfully. It takes not only heavy physical work, between packing and unpacking your furniture, buying new stuff for your home or even renovating; but it also causes mental and emotional stress and it doesn’t stop until you moved in.


If you’re moving in, it is important that you plan things out with time and choose which tasks need to be done by you and which ones can be delegated to professionals.


Once you’ve moved to your new home, the last thing you’d want to do is scrub floors and clean bedrooms. Emily’s Maids offers a move-in service that will take out all that stress out of your system so you can focus on settling into your new place and make it a home for your family.

Let’s talk a little bit about moving in and hiring a cleaning service to help you smooth this long but exciting process.

What is a Move-In Cleaning Service?

This type of service is tailor made for your needs when you move in. The first thing you need to do after you move in, since you haven’t placed all your furniture yet, is to give it a good deep cleaning.


When you move in, it’s not uncommon to find that the previous owners or tenants did not clean before they left. Although this might seem like an inconvenience, it might be a good opportunity for you to really find out about every single nook and cranny and
inspect every corner to find out how your new home is.


However, at this time you’re super busy moving around your items and settling up all your belongings and getting used to your new routine. This is why you should call a professional booking service that will take care of everything for you. If this place is not brand new, it will feel like it once our staff works their magic.

If you’re moving out instead, make sure you clean our move-out service here.

How to Prepare for a Move-In Cleaning Service

Many houseowners are a bit concerned when they consider hiring a move-in cleaning service because they don’t quite know what they should do or even if they should be there at all.


In this case, our move-in service is tailor made for you, considering your home is mostly empty by now. This is important so that our staff can work fast and efficiently given that your home has empty rooms and surfaces.


Right before you move all your belongings, you should book our cleaning service. All you will need to do that day is welcome our staff and just open the doors for them. You’ll be free to go as soon as they enter your home.


If you can’t be there, that’s fine too! You just need to leave a hidden key in the premises, so they are able to get in. You can also purchase a lock box and give them the combination beforehand so they can enter your home and safely store the key back right before they leave.


You can also stay during the cleaning process if you want to, but it won’t be necessary. We understand this is a busy time for you so feel free to enjoy it with friends and family or to run errands.

Because your home is empty, you won’t need to tidy up anything in the first place if there is nothing to begin with. You do need to save your important documents in a drawer in case they are scattered around your home.
