Make sure you can claim your full deposit back at the end of your tenancy by keeping your place neat, clean and very tidy. Not only will this ensure that you get your deposit back from your landlord or estate agency but you will also get a good reference for future lettings, 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.
