Selling a house, clean first or stage?

We are in process of selling elderly parents’ home. There is disagreement regarding the order in which to do things. The home needs to be deep cleaned and staged. What order is this done? Stage then clean or clean then stage? The thought is, if its staged first, it will get dusty or dirty and it may have to be cleaned again.

Also, is it ok to have stuff left in cupboards, closets etc.
