Is it OK? We don't want other people to move our things, therefore, our rooms should be cleaned by ourselves.

It is grammatically OK, but it would be a little more natural to use the active voice: . . ., therefore, we should clean our own rooms.” Also, “therefore” is a little formal. If you wanted to sound less formal,, you could replace “therefore” with “so.”
