Summer is definitely here. This is the season for backyard barbecues, vacations, fun days at the lake with friends and – moving. Summer is a great time to move because people usually have an extra vacation day they can use and don’t have to worry to much about the rain.
In the past, my wife and I went through a period when we moved just about every six to twelve months just for a fresh start and change of scenery. Now I am by far no expert on moving but in my past experience I have found that it is always the little items at the end of the move that take the most effort and we are usually already exhausted by then. By the end of the day your old home is a mess and your new one is cluttered with boxes, so what do you do? Order a pizza, find the DVD player and look for the box that has your DVD’s in it.
You fall asleep and wake up at six am because you have to go back and clean the home you just moved out of. Now maybe you were renting it or maybe you are selling it but in any case it has to be really clean. You spend all day cleaning it and go out to eat because you still can’t find the box with the dishes and haven’t had a chance to go shopping. It’s all done and it is time to go back to work.
Now here is a better scenario. You get a big truck or hire a moving company and you have Maid Perfect worry about cleaning your previous home. Here is an example of just one room’s worth of details that go into one of our move-out cleans.
