Move In Cleaning Service

If you’ve read about our Deep cleaning services, you know by now that it’s meant for special occasions. But since moving is such a special, one-time event, it needs its own type of cleaning.

Milton Maids can help you with that thanks to our Move-In Cleaning Service. If you are moving out, don’t forget to visit our Move-Out Cleaning page.

When Should I Hire a Move In & Move Out Cleaning Service?

There are multiple reasons why you should hire a cleaning service for moving in.

If you’re moving, there’s a lot going on. The moving truck is coming, you’re finishing decluttering and organizing all your belongings, preparing everything for your new home… not a walk in the park, for sure.

With all this going on, you have neither the time nor the energy to clean your brand-new home. That’s the last thing you’d want to do, so hiring a cleaning service like Milton Maids seems like a reasonable option, even if you’re not a frequent user.

Our staff will do all those time-consuming and stressful tasks such as cleaning your appliances, your countertops, vacuuming under your furniture and dusting ceiling fans. You don’t have time for that when you’re unpacking and organizing everything and getting ready to enjoy your new home.

Make sure that the cleaning date and time doesn’t happen at the same time as the actual moving, so the staff can work as efficiently and fast as possible.
