End of lease cleaning
The last thing you want to do when you’re moving house is the cleaning. However, if you want your bond back you’re going to have to clean, or you can pay for someone to do the end of lease cleaning for you. If you don’t clean the property at the end of your lease you won’t get your bond money back, which is usually a full month’s rent – so it is worth cleaning!
Why use professional end of lease cleaners?
You may be confident that you can handle the clean yourself, but be careful not to underestimate the hard work required.
End of lease cleaning is much more involved than your typical fortnightly clean. You’re often dealing with fixtures and appliances that have never been cleaned.
Sometimes you need to spend a little in order to save and this is definitely the case when it comes to hiring professionals to do your end of lease cleaning.
Rather than spending your weekend knee-deep in dust and grime, it makes sense to leave the demanding task in the hands of a professional cleaning company.
End of lease cleaners not only work harder, but smarter. They know exactly what real estate agents and landlords are looking for in a clean and make sure they deliver.
Most end of lease cleaners offer some type of bond refund guarantee. If you fail to get your full bond back due to a cleaning issue they’ll happily return to the property and rectify the problem.
At the very least your cleaner should provide you with a tax receipt which you can present to the real estate agent as proof you’ve had the place professionally cleaned. This will hopefully lessen the likelihood of any nit-picking.
A professional end of lease clean allows you to focus on your move and new home without being dragged back to scrub your old one.
