A very large percentage of people are living in rented accommodation up and down the United Kingdom. Most of this rental is on short term leases for 6 or 12 months. The tenant has to put down large sums as a deposit before being able to moving in. To secure the return of this deposit at the end of the tenancy the property must be returned to the agents or landlord in the same condition as when it was taken over. Many tenancy agreements now have in their clauses that at the end of the agreement the tenant will have the property professionally cleaned. Landlords are adviced to use such a clause in the tenancy agreement so they can rent the property as quick as possible and in the best possible shape after tenants move out.
Even if it is not written into the contract it is always a good idea to have your property professionally cleaned that way you are virtually ensuring that you will get your deposit returned without trouble.
Professional End of Tenancy cleaners will ensure that everything that can be cleaned is cleaned including the ovens, cooker hoods and filter systems, inside the refrigerators, inside all cupboards and shelving, tops and surfaces and any items that may be part of the property such as toasters and microwaves. Bathrooms are completely descaled from ceiling to floor including all fixtures and fittings and then polished. In the remainder of the property all surfaces are cleaned such as skirting boards, light fittings and switches, windows, frames and sills. Carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning is also something that is often carried out to complete a full deep clean of the property.
For the tenant to do this themselves is often not a practical proposition because time is limited and it is much easier to call in a dedicated cleaning company. The average two bed, two bathroom apartment with no oven clean and no carpet cleaning takes two cleaners about 4 – 5 hours to clean. Add in the carpet and upholstery cleaning and an oven clean and you are now looking at 3 -4 cleaners being on site for about 5 hours. Consequently it can be carried out just before the hand back takes place which is often very difficult for the tenant to do themselves.
When you are looking at deposits being in the thousands to pay out between £150 – £600, depending on the size of the property and the cleaning specifications, to get the accommodation cleaned and thus secure your deposit back, it becomes a very worthwhile investment.
