Complete End of tenancy cleaning checklist explained

Complete End of tenancy cleaning checklist explained

Most, if not all tenancy agreements, whether they are with a private landlord, the local council, a housing association or real estate agent will insist on a professional deep clean at the end of the tenant’s time in the property, in order to clear away the inevitable dirt and grime that daily living will have produced and to leave things spotless and sparkling for the next resident.

Tenants have several options for this, including hiring a specialist deep clean end of tenancy cleaning company, or tackling part or the entire job themselves.

There is plenty to think about when conducting a deep end of tenancy clean, so here are some of the main areas that should receive attention during the cleaning process.

A good cleaning company will be able to go through this list, ticking off the jobs as they go to make sure nothing is missed out. In this series of three blogs, we look at the jobs that need to be done – starting with the living room, dining room and kitchen

This also includes lounge, the entire furniture in the property, carpets from top and bottom, on top, in and under the shelves, ensuring all electric bulbs, tube-lights as well as the electric and gas meter have been properly cleaned.

Should there be black grumpy walls, moulds, they should be as well properly cleaned and cleared, in order to ensure, the tenant can get its full deposit.

End of tenancy cleaning job should be handed over to experienced cleaners which know what they are doing. Do not just give it a try to someone cheaper which may put your entire deposit at risk.

A good tenancy cleaning service actually costs a little bit, but at the same time, you should ensure to avoid shocking and hidden prices, it is always great to ask for customer reviews and to check if they know what they say they know

Asking for references in and around your postcode may be a good idea too, if the tenancy cleaning company is changing the subject, that’s probably a good sign with how good they can clean, it would be rather better to read their reviews online and see what people are saying about their end tenancy cleaning services

If you are looking for someone professional which can provide you with all inclusive, full or part end of tenancy cleaning services in London and Surrey, then Cheap Cleaning Services Ltd might be one of the best company I have been personally hiring and will always recommend for their ethics, punctuality, morality and top of that great service and pricing structure

They are probably the only cleaning company in London which actually ensures you get what you pay for. They are amazing when it comes to customer support, answering your calls and emails before and after taking money, they have probably one of the most lowest re-clean rate, but always are happy to promise

In short, if you are looking for professional end of tenancy cleaners in London or in Surrey or 40 miles radius, you should try their service and you will be amazed with their professionalism!

Good Luck and wishing you a great happy new move!
