Moving Cleaning

Moving is stressful enough. Take the cleaning off your long to-do list.

Move-In and Move-Out Cleaning Services for your home

(yes, apartments and condos are homes, too!)

Our Move-In and Move-Out cleanings are essentially the same service. The only difference is the direction that you are headed! We take all the thoroughness of our Deep Cleaning Service, and add in a few items that can only easily be done when the home is empty. Like cleaning the insides of cabinets, drawers and closets.

Move-In Cleaning

Our Move-In Cleaning service goes deep and cleans every surface, including inside cabinets, drawers and closets – the places that will soon be stocked with things as you unpack. We do what you wish you had the time and energy to do yourself – create a truly fresh start. And we love doing it!

The best part is, if you decide you want to continue with our Routine Cleaning Service once you are moved in, the hard work is already done. We can keep your new home looking great.

Move-Out Cleaning

Our Move-Out Cleaning service covers the fine details so you can cross cleaning off your busy to-do list. If you need to make sure you’re meeting the terms of your sale or lease, we’ve got you covered.

We also work with property owners and managers who want to set the best example possible for their tenants by showing that they’re serious about professionalism and care.

Reviews

  • Looking to gift yourself precious time? Oh, look no further than Green Clean Maine to take care of the task of cleaning house. I have been a happy customer since 2008 (!) for both my home and business locations. Owner Joe is a gem, and has assembled teams of friendly, professional, accommodating, hard-working, trustworthy employees you can feel confident and comfortable about when in your home or office (holla, Britt & Hannah!). Their homemade products are a sensory delight, as are the little surprises they leave for the kids (a vignette of their toys playing or roses made out of toilet paper!).
