Real Estate Cleaning Services

As a real estate agent, there’s no shortage of tasks on your checklist. On top of this, you rely heavily on your clients to keep their home in good condition.

Unfortunately, some people don’t have the time, money, or desire to clean their home before every showing. And for that reason, it’s much more difficult for you to make a sale on their behalf.

At Clean It Up, our real estate showing cleaning services are more popular than ever before. The way it works is simple. Contact us before you have a showing, explain your wants and needs, and we’ll take care of the rest.

One of our experienced cleaning professionals will visit the home you’re selling, move through a detailed cleaning checklist (see below), and ensure that everything is in order before the potential buyer arrives.

What Does it Entail?

We know that no two homes require the same level of service, and for that reason we offer customized cleaning plans.

However, for a real estate showing cleaning, you can expect the following:


  • Wipe clean and sanitize the counter tops, sink, and faucet
  • Clean inside and out of small appliances and outside of stove, refrigerator, dishwasher
  • Put clean dishes away and put dirty dishes into dishwasher and start cycle
  • Wipe clean/vacuum furniture
  • Detail dusting
  • Clean switch plates
  • Wipe clean exterior of cabinets and knobs
  • Vacuum and mop the floors
  • Empty trash receptacle


  • Disinfect and wipe clean counter tops, sinks, faucets, and toilets
  • Wipe clean and scrub shower/bathtub surround walls,
  • Clean shower/tub doors
  • Empty trash receptacles
  • Clean exterior of vanities
  • Vacuum and mop the floors
  • Clean mirrors
  • Detail dusting
  • Shake out rugs
  • Clean window sills and switch plates

Other Rooms

  • Detail dusting, which includes dusting under and behind items
  • Thorough vacuuming, including under small and light furniture (and to all edges)
  • Mop hard surfaces
  • Clean furniture
  • Empty trash receptacles
  • Clean window sills, sliding doors, and mirrors
  • Clean ceiling fans
  • Remove cobwebs
  • Change bed linens and replace with second set
  • Wash used linens (and bath towels if time allows)
  • Clean lanai area, including sliding doors, and grilling space

As long as your seller is on board with us doing all of the above, you can consider it done.

And as noted above, if you and/or your seller have any specific needs, we’re happy to put together a custom cleaning plan.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Cleaner

Even if the sellers are reasonably clean and willing to do whatever it takes to sell their home, they’re not professional cleaners.

They don’t understand what it means to pay attention to the details. They don’t have the desire to get into all the nooks and crannies that give the home its best look. And they don’t typically have top of the line cleaning supplies.

Hiring a professional cleaner takes all the guesswork out of the process. Also, sellers love it, because they don’t have to do any cleaning.

Here are some of the many benefits of hiring a professional cleaning service before showing a home:

  • A deep clean: there’s more to cleaning a home than what you see on the surface. A cleaning professional will go well beyond surface cleaning with a deep clean.
  • Indoor and outdoor assistance: while your cleaning pro won’t mow the lawn and pull weeds, they can take care of basic outdoor maintenance such as cleaning sliding glass doors and tidying up around the grilling space and lanai. In Florida, a nice outdoor living space is a big selling feature, so let us help you stage it as such.
  • No signs of pets: simply put, some people don’t want to move into a home where pets have lived. This is particularly true if they’re allergic. Even if your seller has pets, it doesn’t mean potential buyers need to know about it. We’ll vacuum and mop all your floors and dust baseboards – and that’s just the start.

Along with the above, there’s one final benefit of hiring a real estate showing cleaning service: a high return on investment.

Even though you spend money on a cleaning service upfront, you more than make up for it by selling the home sooner rather than later. On top of this, it impresses your client, which increases the odds of them sharing a positive experience with other people.
