What is check out cleaning?

Check out cleaning, end of tenancy, end of lease, move out cleaning, vacate cleaning and the list of different variations goes on, however these are all the abbreviations of end of tenancy clean. Checkout refers to when you complete your verbal or written agreement, you are about to leave (exit that is), and you require a clean in order to put your flat, house, apartment, villa or a bungalow in the same clean state it was whilst you move in to this property in order to start your tenancy.

As described above, check out cleaning is just a simple form of placing or putting your property exactly in the same state it was, so if you are too busy, you might like to hire someone to do this for you. There are several reasons why you should leave it to your professionals

First and the utmost is that there is a saying; it is rather better to leave respective things to the professionals, which specialise in. I am a computer guy and I am very bad at cleaning and I have to admit it today, I have been living in London for a number of decades, each time I was moving out from a property or checking out, no matter how hard I tried, I failed like an old pig and could not stand this end of tenancy clean.

I ended up kind of doing half of the job and then did not had no intention to do it any further, so let’s put it this way, I was not willing to loose my deposit as well as leaving on a good note and why not, as I had to use these references in order to get a new property, this all counts here you see as you know

Do not get me wrong but there is a second reason too, with why I wanted to leave it to professional cleaners, 1). Because I was sure they would do much better job and do not miss a spot which I easily could and 2nd they can always come back if there’s a problem. Plus I would not be blame for doing a bad job and someone else will.

And this idea of mine has always worked.

So if you are leaving a property or checking out, it is always best to hire professional end of tenancy cleaners with or without steam carpet cleaning, some estate agents will ask you to wash your carpets or get them spring, deep or properly cleaned whereas others would, most estate agents will recommend you to use deep or spring cleaning including but not limited to getting your upholstery e.g. (rugs if any, sofa’s, mattresses, curtains steam cleaned too).

Well there are 2 reasons again why they want this 1). They wanted the next tenant do not complain too much about how bad the property was whilst they moved in, 2nd) it is an estate agent or landlords legal obligation to let a property to a new tenant or moving in party to an estate which would not cause diseases, health issues or hazards, as a tenant, you should always return your property in a good state and you can always do that if you hire a professional end of tenancy cleaning which is fully equipped, has the professional steam carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning equipment, uses bespoke cleaning materials, products and the people or tenancy cleaners which come to professionally clean the property know what they have to do than just eating your brain for small little things (lacking common sense).

check out or after tenancy cleaning there is much to do, especially if you work hard for your living, therefore in order to secure or claim your deposit, it is very vital that you let professionals do it for you, which will help you avoid stress, hassle as well as guarantee that you claim your deposit in order to get your property be in the same state as it was whilst you moved in.

If you are looking for help or advice on your check out, vacate, moving out or end of tenancy cleaning, why not call end of tenancy cleaning specialists for free advice by calling on 020 8942 2819 or on 0800 689 8989. You can also call before and after office hours (9am and after 9-pm on 07907 004090. Help is free and there are always polite end of tenancy cleaning front desk always willing to help.

How to avoid end of tenancy cleaning scam?

Until a few years ago there were very few cleaning companies and most of these cleaning agencies were equipped with ethics, morality and a great service you can trust with your eyes closed.

However with the passage of time as London and Surrey are growing, the number of cleaning companies are increasing, in fact, a recent study shows, 5-% of all new businesses opened in London are handyman services which includes cleaning firms as well, so the chances are there are many cleaning firms which are just starting and have a very little knowledge about cleaning in general

Being a cleaner is one thing, being a professional cleaner is quite different. If you search for End of Tenancy Cleaning there are thousands of search results, but how many people in real are aware with what it takes to provide a professional end of tenancy cleaning service is very limited unfortunately.

There are future seekers which charge a very little amount or peanuts to provide with what they say “highly trusted after tenancy cleaning service” but you see the colours of these people once you are fully stuck with them

These cleaning gurus and end of tenancy cleaning specialists and big mouth blue-chip cleaning companies have a very little knowledge.

A friend of mine from America has called a cleaning company in Isleworth and wanted to get his 5-bedroom house fully cleaned after the tenants have moved out.

He has called several end of tenancy cleaning companies he said and been shopping around, everyone wants to save their money, be it you, me or even the tenants and landlords, he finally acquired post tenancy cleaning service from one of the cleaning companies, paid through his credit card (costs more being charged from an international destination I think)

He has definitely chosen the best tenancy cleaning service provider he found with great reviews, but they never turned up, he has called several times from United States and none was attending calls on that mobile and the landline phone number, well it took few days to get in contact with that person who was on holidays in some Eastern European Country, well none turned up, in fact he said that guy was very rude whilst he was asking if they going to turn up at all?

Anyhow, he was stuck for a week or more and then finally he called me to check if I know an end of lease cleaning service provider in and around Isleworth area. I have sent some cleaners and Mr. Landlord, new tenant and cleaners were all happy, fair enough

Now the entire point is to see, how to find an experienced cleaning firm?

Simple things work best

Simply ask for reviews, grab customer’s names, phone number, ask for at least 3 references and make calls, check with people, check online for their online reviews.

The biggest problem innocent tenants make always negotiate even if they are quoted a great price, well it makes sense, everyone looks for an affordable end of tenancy cleaning service, but not when it will cost a lot of pain, it would be rather better to pay a good price for a great service, have peace of mind and expect your property to be thoroughly cleaned

Well and common sense work too – if a end of tenancy cleaning service provider is asking for £100 for a 5 bedroom semi-detached fully furnished house along with steam oven, hob, extractor cleaning as well as steam cleaning the carpets and upholstery, then you should know the kind of service you can expect, well, and if a company charges £1000 then you should normally understand there is a problem there.

Do not fall for these low price tricks; this may risk your deposit, your tenancy reputation as well as peace of mind being spoiled by these so called professional end of tenancy cleaners.

Avoid them! Do not even give a second thought, saving money is one thing but paying the same amount another time might cost you more than a good service provider, NO?

Should you like to experience your good or bad end of tenancy cleaning experience or share your, your friends, colleagues or loved one’s tenancy cleaning reviews, then simply send an email at hi@cheapcleaningservices.com or simply give us a call on 0800 689 8989 and your review will be published on our blog with or without your whereabouts as desired.

Let the world know which are top 10 end of tenancy cleaning agencies in London and Surrey and let’s help the world save time, money and get a great service at highly competitive rates.

End Your Tenancy In Style by spending little and hiring the Best Cleaning Agency

Some useful good tips on End of tenancy cleaning and end of lease cleaning, tips, tricks that will help you save money on hiring professional cleaning company at an amazingly low prices for your after tenancy or post or pre lease cleaning services, you require for your property.

End of tenancy cleaning or after lease cleaning service is a kind of legal obligation to most tenants, residents or businesses renting a residential or commercial premises anywhere in England, Scotland and even also in Wales. Well, it is not just the UK where tenants are requested to clean the property and put it back in the same state as they were offered before moving out.

In countries like in America and Australia, end of tenancy cleaning means proving your good tenancy styles, an experienced real estate agency in Australia (McGrath) states, if your previous references proved in any way that you have not well maintained the property and kept it clean, you will be barred to use our real estate services again. Let’s say the Americans and Australians normally keep their houses well cleaned but when it comes to England, Scotland and Wales, our local tenants be it business or residential tenants are even doing great by hiring professional end of tenancy cleaning service or spring cleaning services (also known as Full Professional Property Cleaning) before moving houses

There are other obligations which you should know before you move in or move out and these tips should be well kept in mind in order to get a good reference in London, Surrey or elsewhere, plus maintain a good reputation in real estate or private landlords eyes including but not limited to, be known as a good human being which respects others place as his/her own.

Your other obligations include:

Ensuring all electric sockets, lights, dishwasher, microwave, cooker, fridge and freezer and any other landlord or property company offered appliances are in full working orders, this includes managing and maintaining your front and back garden, garage or storage rooms, boiler and gas and electricity meters, telephone and electricity wiring and so forth including walls, ceiling, etcetera

Here are 15 useful end of tenancy tips before you hire end of tenancy cleaning specialists or a cleaning company:

1). Check the experience (How long have you been doing this)?

Asking simple questions would not cost a lot, for example how long have you been cleaning houses or offices (houses, flats or apartments, if you are a private residential tenant and offices, warehouses or shopping complexes if you are a business or commercial resident/customer). Most cleaning agencies will tell the trust especially the ones, which are honest, it is suggested that you ask these questions through email and if some questions are not answered then ask for the explanation. You may know how long they been around by checking their company registration date on companycheck.co.uk, you may search their company name or search their company number in order to get to know more about their end of tenancy cleaning services and their business structure.

2). Do you cover my area e.g. Richmond?

You should ask this as soon as your call is connected to their office or their mobile phone in case if there is one person managing all the enquiries through his/her mobile phone. It is good to ask through an email or by sending an electronic email so you keep it as a proof, unfortunately many business hungry companies whose service been mentioned as pathetic and terrible and there have been bad reviews online all over the place will like to get you stuck by saying, yes, it is good to safe it as a proof of their words as they might never turn up, knowing very little about your town/postcode. They might have said yes to grab a piece (Just be cautious)

3). May you provide references in and around my postcode?

It is very vital to ask this question, if they say they have been around for generations or even some years and if their service is good and if they have been covering your area, it is also good to ask for the references in your postcode area. If that’s not the case (if they say they have not been covering your area before), then it is good to ask for references in and around 5 miles radius, even if that’s not the case and they do not have a single customer in 5 miles radius (then I would think, why?), how about 10 miles radius around our house or office? Well, by now you will already know with what to expect.

4). May you please give me name, address and phone number of at least 3 of your end of tenancy cleaning customers please?

Make sure to ask for at least 3 of their recent or previous customers that have/had been using their end of tenancy cleaning services, please ensure that you just do not ask for 1, it may be their colleague, friend or family, happy customers are always happy to give their consent to use their name as a happy client, especially ladies, or less busy people, if their service is good, they should have thousands if not millions happy customers which have given them their consent. Make calls, make friends and get your questions answered, after all, it’s about the property you are moving in or moving out, a good real estate and landlord reference and over all reputation

5). What are your prices?

You should give a full job description of your property including number of bedrooms, bathrooms, reception, dinning or living rooms, number of toilets, Ensuite, shower rooms etc including but not limited to the number of levels in your property, carpeted areas e.g. 56 stair steps, 2 landings, 3 hallways, 1 living room, storage room etc. Once you have explained or give you’re the full job description, you are waiting to hear about their prices, if you are given the prices, ask whether these prices include or exclude VAT (make notes).

6). How many people will you send to provide after tenancy cleaning service?

It is a little bit more polite (in my opinion to ask), how many staff members will you send than asking, how many cleaners will you send? Well, but then again a cleaner should be called cleaner and I do not find it improper. End of tenancy or after lease cleaning is an eye to detail job and requires lots of hard work, attention to detail and number of hours to work in property in order to clean the entire property from inside including the appliances, you should ask this question and if a cleaning firm says 1 or 2 people, be cautious, It is rather better to get an accurate and exact figure. (Ask questions, as many needed in order to get to know about the truth).

7). Will you send all cleaning equipment and cleaning products?

Honestly speaking there is a lot to do when moving houses, be it moving in or moving out (on the end of your tenancy or lease), the last week specially keeps us engaged by getting our debit cards and credit cards, issued on a new address and postcode, getting our bank details, driving licence, electricity, power and water sorted and so on. You also need to pack your stuff and be ready for a move, it is therefore suggested that you choose an end of tenancy cleaning company that sends enough people to do the job, all cleaning products, equipment’s and tools are sent by them including steam carpet cleaning machine, vacuum cleaners, mops, buckets, scrubbers, screw drivers and other tools in order to provide you with a great service, you cannot just afford to go out and buy stuff and waste time. It is a lot better to pay some extra £5 and avoid the stress for buying and arranging cleaning products and equipment’s on your own.

8). Which steam carpet, curtains, sofas and rug cleaning machines do you use?

If your property have been rented fully or partially furnished and if there are carpets, sofa’s and rugs, curtains etc in your residential or business property, then chances are you would need to get them steam cleaned. It is a very good idea to tell a cleaning company if there are any stains, be it red wine or chocolate stains, chocolates or nail polish, tea or coffee or food stains on your carpets, sofas, rugs and curtains, this will help the company give you an accurate cost when it comes to stain removal. Back to the main point e.g. which steam carpet cleaning machines do they use? If they use Ninja Ashby Carpet Cleaning Machines or Prochem steam carpet cleaning machines, let’s hope they have the latest and modified brand new versions of those machines in order to provide you with a great steam cleaning service for your carpets and upholstery cleaning.

9). Are you as a cleaning company, your staff (cleaners) and your cleaning equipment’s fully insured and may you please email me the scanned copies of your company insurance cover, your cleaners and your equipment please?

Ask for their cleaning company public liability insurance, their staff members (ask their names which are coming to clean your property) and request individual insurance cover or company insurance cover certificate if this covers their staff too. Please note, accidents happen, injuries occur, machinery may go faulty or someone may get hurt, if that cleaning company, their cleaners or their tools and equipment’s are not fully insured for at least 5 to 10 million cover, then that might ring the bell (All serious cleaning companies should be legally covered by an independent and famous insurance company, it is also good to check if they have made any insurance claims (for break downs, injuries etc in the past?) This will give you an idea with how serious they are.

10). How do you transport your cleaners to properties?

London and Surrey are very busy when it comes to traffic on the roads, trains, buses and coaches etc., fully inspect and check for their arrangements when it comes to transporting the tools and equipment’s and their cleaners. If cleaners are coming using public transport then you may get an idea with how they can transport their tools and equipment’s, be very careful as you cannot afford delays at this point on a very serious point of time when you are moving in or out of the house

11). Do you hold any end of tenancy cleaning certifications?

Many successful cleaning firms arrange certifications and accreditation for their company and their staff members, it includes end of tenancy cleaning certification, carpet and upholstery cleaning as well as cleaning standards, hygiene and health and safety, ask and request the copies of those certifications. You will get to know how serious they are when it comes to their business, if they are serious business people, they might be serious about your property too, No?

12). Have you ever worked with a client of “The name of your real estate company?

Tell the name of your real estate company and ask if they have ever dealt with a customer of that specific company (your property company), if not, I personally would not like to use their service, if they are good enough, they should have worked with enough customers and chances are, they should have worked with at least 1 customer (do your mathematic properly)

13). How do you give a proof of your cleaning?

Most cleaning companies invoice you and their invoice documents are considered as a proof of professional cleaning service (but many small or start-up cleaning businesses which are not famous enough are not even considered by leading real estate companies), please ensure they give you invoice and it is your duty to ensure, their invoice will be considered as a proof of your payment and their service

14). May I see a sample of your invoice?

Ask for the sample of that cleaning agency invoice documents, and forward it to your landlord or your real estate agency to know if their service will be recognised as professional service?

15). How do you send invoices?

Most cleaning companies may email you a PDF or Microsoft Word invoice through electronic means, processional cleaning service providers may send you an invoice through email, fax, by post and also give on the day of service. Please see and check what works the best for you. I personally recommend electronic invoices as this will help you save money on copying or printing your invoices and you may easily send electronic copies of your invoices quickly and efficiently by forwarding to your landlord or estate agent

16). Do you work on Weekends and bank holidays and are there any extra charges for bank holidays, weekends and the evening cleaning service?

If you are a busy professional, you surely do not want to ruin your entire day because of end of tenancy cleaning service, especially when you have already been holidaying and may get permission to take another day off, in that case you might like to get your property end of tenancy clean done in the evening/night, there are companies which will charge the same price, whereas some may charge extra, there is no point to pay extra price, as public holidays, weekends bring free parking and congestion and also parking is nearly free or more cheaper in evenings or during the night. It is not suggested to pay extra for public holiday or weekend or night service, as there is no point to waste your money on something you can avoid paying, in face save on parking and congestion and there is less traffic on public and bank holidays and during the evening/night

17). Are there any other costs/charges?

Honest cleaning service providers will give you price based on the job description you have given or the property specs and size and they will stick to it, some dishonest people will keep small prints and shocking surprises for later, when you are fully stuck with them, these people can not just give shocking surprises but also may be rude, come up with a bizarre attitude, delay your job or be late or ask for extra money for no reason. Be very careful and know what are you paying

18). How do you take payments and when do I have to pay for the service?

Honestly, every company has different policy when it comes to their billing, refunds and cancellations, but it is good to know at this stage where there are no commitments, no promises, most cleaning agencies will process your payment or authorise your debit or credit card and then take the payment when you are fully happy to give your consent, some will take 50-% in advance and 50-% on completion, if you are afraid to give your debit or credit card details, you may request their bank details and may deposit the (advance money) via online bank transfer or by visiting one of your nearest and the respective branch, some companies take cash all on completion, cheques and postal orders, so it is therefore your choice with what works the best for you. It is rather better to pay through debit or credit card if they are honest company as you will get the invoice before the service takes place and have a proof, whereas most cleaning firms will invoice you after the payment has been received which may (for 1 or 2 reasons delay to forward your invoice to your landlord or estate agent and my incur extra living charges in the property)

19). What are guarantees or warrantees for your tenancy or lease cleaning service?

Hard working, honest and passionate people are happy to give warrantees or guarantees as they are sure about their work, you must ask for a written guarantee for their words so you can prove it at the later stage, their invoice should have their guarantee on it, so you or your landlord or your real estate agency can speak on your behalf in order to request a re-clean or refund if they have missed a spot or general poor cleaning service has been offered. You should go for a a cleaning company with at least minimum 48 hours guarantee for their service as this will give you the peace of mind as well as if something’s been missed you may request a re-clean or refund

20). What if my real estate or inventory company is not happy with the service?

Real Estate and Inventory Companies are strict and keep doing the good work by ensuring they check the property completely and professionally, if they are not happy with the service, inventory company will request your flat or house to be re-cleaned, if your existing cleaning company (or end of tenancy cleaning service provider) have given you the warrantee or guarantee then you may call, email or ask them to repair those minor or major points as promised, if they have failed to come and re-service, then your property company will either cut money from your deposit in order to get it professionally cleaned. It is very strongly suggested that you hire tenancy cleaning or lease clean service which are popular, well reviewed online and well praised in community and by inventory and property companies.

Do not fall for some discount or sales and marketing pitch, people that know what they are doing are always humble, down to earth, God fearing and polite and soft spoken.

There are several other points to note including but not limited to:

A). What cleaning equipment and products will they send?
B). What steam carpet or upholstery cleaning machines will they use?
C). How their cleaning personals will travel and transport?
D). How soon you expect to finish the job?
E). Are there any deliverables at my side as a customer?
F). Are you happy to take the payment on completion of my inventory check out?
G). How long have you been playing the end of tenancy cleaning game?
H). Is there any support phone number where I can contact in case there’s a problem?
I). What are your working hours?
J). What is your office address?
K). May you please send your billing policy and terms and conditions documents?
L). May you please email/fax me your insurance cover documents?
M). How do I know I am fully booked?

Dog’s life, end of tenancy cleaning tips for pet friendly properties

End of tenancy cleaning tips for pet friendly properties in London and Surrey

For many of us, a house is not a home without the addition of a loving cat, dog or even a cuddly rabbit or guinea pig.

Not all domestic rental agreements allow pets, but for those that do, making sure all signs of them are removed in thorough end of tenancy cleaning in pet-friendly houses, hostels and or residential or commercial properties, is the only way to ensure the complete return of the tenant’s deposit.

So how can you make sure you eradicate all signs of your beloved four-footed friends from a rented house or flat before you hand back the keys? Here are some top tips.

Treating urine stains
However well house-trained your pet is, it is quite likely that you will have to clean up after an accident sooner or later. Urine spills can become smelly quite quickly so immediate attention is called for. Avoid using ammonia-based products, as these can smell of urine in their turn.

Instead, dab an absorbent terry cloth or tea towel over fresh liquid patches, then pat it several times (do not rub it, as this can damage the carpet beneath) Use a proprietary pet urine removal product to wipe away the rest of the stain, or to tackle dried in stains. If you are not sure where the ‘accidents’ are, buy an ultra violet light and shine it near the carpet to reveal the blighted spots. Place a mark with some chalk nearby so you can find it again in normal light.

Removing shed hair and fur
If your rented house is furnished, a large part of your end of tenancy pet cleaning routine will involve removing fur and hair from sofas, beds and chairs. Even if not, the carpet will need examining to remove the unwanted excess. Use a vacuum cleaner – if possible, one with a special pet hair setting to remove as much as you can.

If the hair leaves a stain behind, consider steam cleaning – you can hire a machine or call in specialists to tackle this for you. If there is only a small area of hair to tackle, wind some sellotape around your fingers, sticky side up, and press against the hair to attach it to the tape.

Banishing unwanted pet signs
Dogs and cats can make a house smell, however careful their owners are regarding hygiene. Owners often become immune to such smells, so it is worth inviting a friend round to tell you honestly if there is a problem. Aromatic candles designed to eliminate pet odours are a good option, as is fabric freshener for the carpets, curtains and upholstery.

Binning and disposing of used litter is also best done immediately too, using tightly secured bags – you can get scented ones to help mask the smells even further.

Keep your pet and its living quarters clean throughout your tenure in the house to cut down on work during your end of tenancy pet cleaning. Bathe pets and wash or change their bedding regularly to help them maintain good hygiene, oral health and grooming. This will keep the odours down – and maintain a cleaner, fresher house.

End of tenancy cleaning and students

Summertime sees the end of the academic year, with thousands of students finishing their courses and heading back home – or off on holiday. However, before the celebrations can commence, there is the little matter of cleaning up after leaving your student accommodation. Most students are aware of end of tenancy cleaning in London and Surrey – Especially the one’s have been living in London for quite sometime

But there are students which only come to know about end of tenancy clean when either their tenancy agreement expires or they are going on long holidays or just finish their whole course – Well, it makes sense as most people in a busy city like London hardly get time to go through the whole contract clauses.

Whether you have spent the year in college housing or in a privately rented house, you will be expected to leave things as clean and tidy as possible – or risk losing your deposit or incurring as fine. So here are a few extra cleaning lessons ahead of the long summer break.

If funds will stretch to it as the end of a busy term, you might like to invest in a deep tenancy cleaning, or end of tenancy cleaning service.

After all, why spend your precious freedom cleaning? Specialist cleaning companies will know how to clean and prepare a house, room or flat ahead of landlord or letting company inspections.

If you are cleaning it yourself, it is a good idea to make a list of areas to be cleaned first – or find one online. That way, you won’t miss anything and can work through the list methodically.

Get everyone who has lived at the property involved – plus any long term visitors or regular guests. Make it fun by turning up the music, sharing out the jobs and seeing who can get their tasks done the quickest.

Have a treat standing by for when you finish – just don’t drop any crumbs or drinks on the freshly cleaned floor afterwards!

Unless you have extremely accommodating parents, it’s a good idea to wash and iron as much of your clothing as you can before leaving for home.

Clean, flat clothes can be packed much more easily than soiled, scrunched up ones, and dirty clothes will make your clean ones smell if they are all thrown into a suitcase together.

If you are planning any end of year celebrations, it might be a good plan to book a specialist after event or after party cleaning company to handle the fall out the following day.

A few students clubbing together will not need to pay all that much for a sparkling clean result with no effort required.

If you have enjoyed the services of a cleaner during the year, now might be a good time to thank them with a gift of some wine, flowers or similarly kind gesture.

After all, they have picked up after you and your housemates all year – surely that’s worth saying thank you for properly?

Before you leave, check inside all cupboards and drawers, along shelves, behind doors etc to make sure you have not left anything behind that you need, or that there are no nasty or moldy surprises lurking.

Check upwards for cobwebs and inform the landlord, agent of educational body of any damage found – photographic evidence may be required if you need to prove the damage was not your fault.

Most student want to save as much money they can for the fun part or just to invest that money on something more useful. But this is where the problem lies, after your tenancy, if your house, flat or apartment and even the room was found dirty, grumpy walls, stains on the carpets, fridge, freezer, microwave oven and cooker or kitchen, bathroom, toilet and stair cases, landings, hallways, and flights of stairs in general, this may harm your reasons to get your full deposit in return.

Don’t risk your tenancy deposit

Tenancy Ending Soon? End Of Tenancy Cleaning may help you get your deposit.

You can read about end of tenancy cleaning checklist explained in our previous blog posts.

When a tenant leaves a property, it can be all to o easy to think just about how new and exciting the next home is going to be, without making sure the old one is left in the right conditions.

Leaving a property in a dirty or unsatisfactory condition is one of the most common reasons why a landlord, real estate agent, housing association manager or local council inspector will withhold all or part op a tenancy deposit.

So, how can you make sure you leave with your deposit safely returned to you?

Since April 2007, landlords have been legally obliged to give reasons and evidence (if called upon) before withholding a deposit as part of mandatory tenant deposit protection guidelines.

So by keeping the place clean – and proving your efforts in this pursuit, you will find that your deposit stands a better chance of being returned to your pocket.

If therefore gores without saying that you should leave the property as clean as you possibly can. The best way to do this if you are able to, is to hire a specialist deep clean end of tenancy cleaning company.

They will have expertise in restoring rental properties to their sparklingly hygienic best and will work to a tried and tested task checklist – either drawn up by your landlord, or using from the cleaning company’s own experience with other, similar properties.

The money spent on a professional clean will often come to less than a lost deposit, plus you do not have to put in the hard work yourself, and will retain a clean reputation wit the landlord to match the rental property you are moving on from.

If you do choose to clean the place yourself, invest in decent cleaning products – you might also consider hiring a steam cleaner for the carpets and curtains. Look online, or ask your landlord for an end of tenancy deep clean jobs check list and follow it to the letter.

During your tenancy, you can help reduce the final cleaning workload by keeping the place clean and tidy as you go.

When you move in, take pictures of any pre-existing damage and check that there are no items requiring regular specialist cleaning that you will need to look after while you are there.

For example, if the house has a working fireplace, how often should you engage the services of a chimney sweep to keep things clean and safe?

Look after the house and flat and its contents – avoid large parties or unwise pranks. Report any damage immediately, as well as issues such as damp or pests.

This will help reduce longer-term damage and the loss of your deposit at the end of your stay.

Again, if you do discover damage, such as mildew, mold or pest pollution, a specialist domestic cleaning company will be able to clean the affected area – always seek professional advice.

End of tenancy cleaning tips

End of Tenancy Cleaning Tips – Learn how you can claim your full deposit by ensuring you end of tenancy in style by keeping your place neat, clean and very tidy. You do not just get your deposit back from your landlord or estate agency but also a good reference in the UK, which actually counts very much.

However carefully you live and look after your rented home, flat or apartment, when it comes to the day when you pack up and move out, there will inevitably be areas you missed during your cleaning rounds and parts of your house or flat in need of freshening up.

It is, of course, up to you whether you tackle end of tenancy cleaning yourself, or call in a professional end of tenancy cleaning service, but either way, there are several things to remember if you don’t want to forfeit your deposit

It is usually the carpets and rugs that bear the brunt of your time in a house or flat. So make sure these are thoroughly shampooed and vacuumed to leave them looking as good as you can.

In the kitchen, focus on the hob, oven and fridge to create a hygienic, clean feel. Wipe down and disinfect all surfaces, including floors, tiles, walls, skirting, window ledges and radiators – and don’t forget the insides of the cupboards. Do all washing up and clean the sink afterwards, remove limescale property and professionally.

If you are leaving a furnished flat or house, arrange the contents of drawers, cupboards and shelves so that they look neat and tidy.

Attention to detail: look closely around so that you don’t miss any of the less obvious places where dirt can gather. Examples include extractor fans, bathroom taps, rubbish bins, inside washing machine powder drawers and skirting boards.

If you are leaving the bed behind, turn the mattress and give it a good airing and vacuum. Strip the bed of all linen and change the sheets if clean ones are being left behind for that purpose. Clean blinds, skirting, window ledges, radiators, pictures and mirrors. Don’t forget to dust all furniture, lampshades and cupboards and shelves.

Clean all windows internally – and externally if you can reach safely. You can use proprietary products or white vinegar on a soft, clean cloth. Rinse the windows afterwards and buff to a shine using a scrunched up ball of newspaper.

Don’t forget the tops of cupboards, picture rails and other high up places where you cannot necessarily see the dirt, dust and grease. Fireplaces are also often forgotten in an end of tenancy clean, as are stairs and hand rails. Don’t declare any room finished before going on a cobweb hunt.

Finally, if you have stored any items, such as pictures, ornaments etc, don’t forget to retrieve them and put them back where you first found them.

Replace any broken objects and check everything against your copy of the contents inventory. Leave all items in the house tidy and spotless.

End of tenancy cleaning should be done by yourself or hire a professional cleaning company which can do the rest for you. There are thousands of cleaning companies in London, Surrey and in United Kingdom in general but very few cleaning companies are actually aware of good quality standard end of tenancy clean.

Make sure you hire the right people which have all in place, be it cleaning products, materials and cleaning equipment, carpet cleaning machine and all in place to ensure you get your tenancy cleaning all spik and span!

Good Luck! and If you require help with your end of tenancy cleaning in London and Surrey and literally anywhere in 40 miles radius, call Cheap Cleaning Services Ltd for a competitive price and great service.
