It's time to PCS and the dreaded time has come to clear quarters. Do you have any nightmares to share with the community? Back in the day, everything fell on the service member, now they offer cleaning teams at a set fee. What is the key to survival when it comes time to leave the casa? Have you EVER passed on the first try?

I have successfully cleared two on-post houses with minimal issues (broken blinds). No real secret, just clean regularly. When I moved into my current on-post house, inside the welcome packet from housing, it had information for an "approved" cleaner, which I was told gets you a first time go for clearing.

Most installations have a "clean get away" program. There are groups of folks out there who are authorized by housing to clean your quarters. For a nominal fee, the team will conduct an inspection, render a price, if you agree, you and the team lead go to housing office, Sign an agreement and your done. The team is then responsible and accountable to housing for the cleaning portion. The only thing you will have to do is fix any self help items and work orders. Check your local housing office for this program. Good luck!

I have ALWAYS passed on the first go and the only thing I was ever charged for was a missing garage door opener (that thing was $50). Once your household goods are gone, start upstairs, go room to room. Once a room is done, shut the door and move on.
