Hiring professional cleaners
Hiring professional cleaners is physically easier for you, but you also need to prepare. Before they come, make sure you remove your belongings and gather your personal documents, so they’re not accidentally thrown away. If you still have items in the house that haven’t been moved, make a no-touch zone so they can clean most of the apartment.
Be clear about what tasks you want the cleaners to accomplish and their price. It’s likely to be cheaper and easier for them if you remove any clutter before they arrive. The more of your personal belongings and appliances that are removed, the faster they’re going to be able to clean.
The choice to clean your apartment yourself or hire a professional is up to you. Consider the information above and make the best choice based on your budget, schedule and lifestyle. Whatever option you choose, you’ll still need to make sure all areas of the unit are covered.
