More about End of tenancy cleaning

End of tenancy cleaning or post tenancy clean is done at end of your tenancy when you move out of the property. Most tenancy agreements will require you to carry out an end of tenancy clean before the property is handed back to the estate agent or landlord. To ensure the cleaning is done properly, most professional cleaning companies will have a checklist of what needs to be cleaned. Skirting boards, tops of cabinets, inside cupboards and light switches need to be cleaned thoroughly along with any appliances that come with the property. However, the general rule is that you must leave the property in the condition that it was given to you. Always read the inventory report to check if you do need to get your property professionally cleaned. Click here to read our end of tenancy cleaning guide.

Many people find that they lose part of their deposit because the property hasn’t been cleaned thoroughly and they don't get the move out cleaning done throroughly enough. In fact, most deposit disputes relate to cleaning costs deducted from the deposit. Make sure you always retain a receipt when a professional end of tenancy clean has been done so you can show your landlord or estate agent evidence that cleaning has been taken place. Another tip is to always check the property at the end of the clean to ensure that nothing has been missed. Most companies will offer a re-clean within 48 hours. Taking photos of the property after it has been cleaned should help eliminate any problems should the estate agent or landlord try to deduct money from your deposit for cleaning.

When choosing a company, it is important to check if they have insurance and that they offer a cleaning guarantee. Most companies will bring their own equipment and chemicals with them to your property, so you do not have to provide them.
