When you are moving houses, one of the pressing issues you have to address is organising an end of tenancy cleaning. It’s important you know what the landlord’s expectations are, weigh your options and make an informed decision. Sometimes you may get away with doing the job yourself, but in fact, many contracts have a clause, which requires a professional end of tenancy cleaning to be provided by the tenant. And when that’s the case, you also need to know how to pick the right end of tenancy service.
Research the Company
Most people who are looking for end of tenancy cleaners will try first on Google. Usually, it’s best if the company is local to you so you minimise the chance of delays due to transport issues. Have a look at a few results you find on Google. Check the company reviews, follow the links to their social media and try to get more information about the company itself. You do that to ensure this isn’t a scam and you are paying for a good quality job. Speak to the office and see if their customer service is reliable. This is very important in case there is a problem and they need to resolve it.
Research the Service
Now that you found a few reputable end of tenancy cleaning companies, you should focus on what they offer. Of course, you need to compare the prices. But, even more importantly than that, you need to compare what’s included in each service. Even though the service is standard to an extent, some companies may offer a little extra. Others may cover less than what is expected from you in your tenancy agreement. Flexibility is a bonus, especially if your moving out programme is very tight. You may need the cleaners to come late in the afternoon and work in the evening or get it all done before noon. More bonus points – some companies give guarantee for their service, e.g. they come back to clean free of charge if your landlord or agent is not happy with the quality of the cleaning.
Know What You Need
Now that we mentioned tenancy agreement and its requirement. You have to carefully read the clauses in relation to end of tenancy cleaning and the check-in report. Missing a spot can cost you part of the deposit and we don’t want that to happen. So, for example, you may need professional carpet cleaning too! Most cleaning companies do NOT include carpet cleaning in their end of tenancy cleaning service, so you will have to book it separately. You may be lucky enough to find a provider that offers a package deal, so here’s why researching is so important.
