Move Out Cleaning Checklist

Moving out of your home or apartment? Time to get cleaning! Cleaning before you move out can help boost the appeal of your home to new potential buyers, and if you’re in a rented space, it could potentially eliminate additional cleaning fees.

All Rooms

These are good cleaning tips for any room or area of your house:

  • Clean places where dust collects: window sills, ledges, ceiling fans, etc.
  • Remove any cobwebs that may have formed in corners
  • Vacuum
  • Shampoo carpeting
  • Remove smudges from the walls
  • If you have extra paint, paint over scratches, dings, and holes from wall hangings


  • Sink
  • Range top
  • Inside of your stove
  • Inside the microwave
  • Clean any stainless steel appliances with stainless steel-specific cleaner
  • Vacuum and mop the floor
  • Scrub countertops and remove grime from grout
  • Remove hard water deposits from dishwasher


  • Clean counters and sinks
  • Make sure to clean the area behind your faucet – it’s easy to miss!
  • Scrubbing the toilet – the inside, inside rim, around the base, and under the lid
  • Vacuuming and mopping the floors
  • Removing hard water and smudges from large glass surfaces
  • Removing any hair or other debris caught in drains
