Why hire a professional cleaner for a moving-out clean?

Moving on out? Don’t let the cleaning stop you in your tracks with a moving-out clean.

Moving home is widely agreed upon to be one of life’s most stressful experiences.

In fact, according to Nicky Lidbetter, chief executive of charity Anxiety UK,

“Most of us like familiarity, routine and order. When you’re moving, you have none of those.”

So, why on Earth would you add to that stress by cleaning the whole house yourself?

Though it is a further expense, there are several benefits to hiring a professional home cleaning service for a moving-out cleaning – which our experts have put together in this handy blog post.


  1. Saving you time and energy

Hiring a professional for a moving-out clean saves you time and energy better spent on the other strenuous tasks required to move home.

Let’s face it, when moving, you’re being pulled in multiple directions, and you have a million jobs to do; the last thing you want is to clean the house from top to bottom.

Especially when moving has been linked to high levels of stress and fatigue that can often lead to sleep deprivation.

Your body could likely do with a break.

Whether giving you time to focus on other jobs or to take the strain off, the time you save with a professional cleaner is the time you get back!

It leaves you one less thing to worry about, relieving some of the heavy mental burdens we carry when moving home.

  1. A proper send-off

For many of us, a home is something to take pride in – and that doesn’t change just because you’ve moved.

As Debbie Walker from Merry Maids of Croydon can attest.

She says for her customers who have benefitted from moving cleaning, it helps them leave their home – which they have poured so much love and care into over the years – in a state that feels appropriate and (dare we say) respectful.

Which is why her team call them “courtesy cleans”.

With a professional cleaner, you’re working alongside people you can trust to deliver reliable service when you need it most.

It’s also an emotional time particularly, given the attachment we may have to a property.,

After all, home is where the heart is.

In that sense, a professional moving-out cleaning may be your way of caring for the home you love and giving it a proper send-off.
