clean up (v.), clean-up (adj.),or cleanup (n.)
(1) An informal phrase used by lenders to describe a provision in loan documents, usually the promissory notes used for lines of credit. The clean-up provision requires that the loan balance outstanding under the line of credit be reduced, usually to zero, for a period of time, usually one or two months, with some specified frequency, usually annually.
Sometimes called an " out of debt requirement".
A clean-up requirement is particularly well suited to borrowers with significant seasonal fluctuations in sales.
(2) The unwinding of an asset-backed security when the remaining balance is very small is sometimes referred to as a clean-up call. American Banker Glossary
