There is a lot of work that goes into getting ready to move. You have to declutter all the stuff you have collected over the years, downsize, and start fresh. It can be a dirty and challenging job.
Luckily, you have some choices. You can do the work yourself or hire a professional cleaning service to help.
On average, hiring a professional to do a whole-home cleanup project will cost $1,000 and $2,000. However, this price can vary depending on the size of the project and how nasty the mess is. Professional junk removal and cleanup services involve loading your items into a truck or trailer. It gives an area a quick sweep to remove any last bits of debris and haul the debris.
Suppose you are interested in getting your home professionally deep cleaned. In that case, we recommend asking your neighbors or local-area family and friends if they have any recommendations for a qualified and reliable housekeeper.
The average cost to deep clean an entire home is around $150-$200. However, the price will be less if your home is empty or on the small side and more if your home is full of items or on the large side.
For a DIY cleanup project to be completed, you will need:
-A way to transport and dispose of debris (dumpster, trailer, pick-up truck)
-Cleaning supplies (disinfectant, multi-purpose cleaner, microfiber towels, mop, vacuum)
If you’re going the DIY route, dumpster rental is a good option for disposing of large amounts of household junk. It will cost $300-$500 on average.
You will have enough time to clean your home before you move out. If you need to move sooner, you can ask the company if they offer a shorter rental period for a discounted price.
