Before we moved into our current apartment, we were told that the unit will be professionally cleaned. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and it took a week for me to clean and disinfect everything. So we were thinking that if ever we did get a tenant, and provided there's enough budget, we'd have the house cleaned.
I only know of two companies that provide this service in Manila. The first is Dirty Business which I got from a local décor magazine. They had an issue on suppliers that the top interior designers go to and Dirty Business was mentioned by one of them. According to the article, the company "Focuses on post-construction cleaning as its core offering. This could mean full detail cleaning of new or newly-renovated houses."
The second was found in an advertisement in Real Living Philippines (I think). Merry Maids is an international franchise based in the United States.
