A few weeks ago we posted some useful end of tenancy cleaning tips for tenants to make sure that they’re able to get their deposits back. We wanted to continue the series so here are some more useful tips that you need to bear in mind when you’re moving out of your property.
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.
End of tenancy cleaning should be done by yourself or hire a professional cleaning company which can do the rest for you. Make sure you hire the right people who 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 spick and span!
