Yes, if you would like a move-out cleaning, please choose the deep cleaning option, plus any additional services such as inside cabinets, inside windows, etc. that you would like included in the service.
Standard cleaning is meant for a home that has been regularly maintained. A deep cleaning adds more time to the booking to focus on those areas that have not been regularly maintained such as wiping baseboards, fronts of cabinets/drawers in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room, wiping the door frames and handles, light switches, and extra attention to showers/tubs.
