So let’s find out about this type of cleaning service and why tenants and landlords benefit from it.
What does end of tenancy cleaning mean for tenants?
Tenants who take advantage of move-out cleaning services get peace of mind. They know that their rented property is left in a very clean condition for their landlords.
Our cleaning team will clean every inch of your rented property and include areas commonly missed in regular cleaning. This will ensure you get back as much of your deposit as possible.
Our team uses an end of tenancy cleaning checklist to ensure every area of the property is perfect.
What does end of lease cleaning mean to landlords and estate agents?
For landlords, end-of-lease cleaning means that they can often hand over a property to a new renter without needing to clean it at all. It saves the landlord time and money because a professional cleaning company has thoroughly cleaned their rental property beforehand.
For estate agents, this cleaning means that they can show a property in the best light possible. So, they have a good chance of getting someone new into the property very quickly. Which is also great for landlords, of course.
Can landlords charge a tenant for an end of tenancy clean?
If the landlord or estate agent that does the handover of your rented property deems that the cleaning hasn’t been done to a high standard, additional cleaning charges can be added to your security deposit. Landlords and or estate agents use an agency-approved checklist to ensure that every area of the property is cleaned to these standards.
Any professional cleaning prior to handover should also be using this checklist to ensure that every area of the home falls within the guidelines set out in the checklist. This ensures that the tenant will be in occurrence with their tenancy agreement and no further cleaning charges will be applied.
Checklist for end of tenancy cleaning
An end of tenancy cleaning service aims to leave a property in the same condition as when the tenant moved in. This means that the tenant’s deposit can be returned in full, and the whole situation is much less stressful for the tenants and the landlords.
To help us with this, we use cleaning checklist. We keep it up to date to ensure that our cleaners are cleaning to ever-stricter guidelines. Landlords and property management services are checking properties extremely thoroughly now. Without a comprehensive checklist, even a professional end of lease cleaner may likely miss areas now commonly checked by landlords.
What does an end of tenancy cleaning include?
An end of tenancy clean from professional cleaners should include a complete deep clean of the entire property. Professional end of tenancy clean uses a checklist to ensure that no area of the property is missed during the professional cleaning. It is designed to create a blank canvas for the new tenants and ensure you receive as much of your security deposit as possible.
So cleaning companies will do all of the cleaning tasks around your home, including wiping the skirting boards, window frames and door frames, mopping floors, dusting all areas, cleaning the kitchen appliances and kitchen cupboards, cleaning behind the toilets, and a great deal more.
In short, this cleaning service is a complete cleaning of an entire property ready for new tenants.
