Moving is often a stressful undertaking. When you are moving out, you have a hundred and one things to remember and to take care of. Decluttering, organizing, disassembling furniture and packing are just a few of the tasks you need to worry about during your move. Cleaning is a large part of it as well. Although, leaving the place clean for the next homeowners or tenants is essential. It may be a challenging task, but it is necessary. However, there are helpful resources that you may find useful. And one of such resources is this move-out cleaning checklist.
So you have packed your things and the movers or your friends helped you move them out. You find your home empty but full of dust and grime that you didn’t notice or see before this. Here is a list of places to check and clean as you are moving out.
1. Clean the kitchen First
Kitchen may turn out to be the hardest and most tedious place to clean, so it’s best to get it out of the way first. In the kitchen you will need to check and clean the following items:

- Around and under the fridge
- Inside the microwave
2. Give Bathrooms a Good Clean
Bathrooms are another location in your home that you need to thoroughly check and clean. The following:
