Cleaning is the act of visiting other people's cities and cleaning their buildings.
When you visit a city, you can clean their buildings. If it's your neighbor, you can clean 10 buildings. If it isn't, you can clean 5 buildings.
Often, people leave messages to each other to tell them they've cleaned their city and would expect to have their own city cleaned back. Many players also leave their Storm8 ID for neighbor invitations.
The following table lists common abbreviations used in messages:
|Cyc||"Cleaned your city"||You initially clean someone's city.|
|Cycb||"Cleaned your city back"||You're returning someone's cleans.|
|Ty, cycb||"Thank you; cleaned your city back"|
|Cyc hagd||"Cleaned your city, have a good day"|
|"Full"||All of a person's buildings have already been cleaned by other people.|
|F, lmkwc||"Full; let me know when cleared/collected"||You want that person to tell you when their buildings have been collected.|
