End Of Tenancy Cleaning
End of tenancy cleans, what do they include?
In order to pass the final inspection of your property, it is important to do a thorough end of tenancy clean as per your tenancy agreement. Failure to do so may result in deductions from deductions being made from your deposit. To begin with, ensure any damages in the property are fixed or replaced as necessary, do not leave this to your landlord as the cost is likely to be significantly higher than you anticipated. After correcting all damages, the end of tenancy clean can commence, paying special attention to the following areas:

Can your landlord force you to hire a specific cleaning company?
No, your landlord cannot force you to hire a specific cleaning company as that is the tenant’s responsibility, this requires you to leave the property as it was when you first moved in. Your landlord can simply request a standard of hygiene which will be listed in the inventory report.
End of tenancy cleans are essential when your property does not meet that criteria, if you have been a careful tenant, then the chances are that the property will already be very close to what is documented in the inventory report. In this case, you may not need to hire a professional company, merely double check the property for any oversights before returning your keys to your landlord.
Who is responsible for the daily cleaning and maintenance?
Unless specifically stated on your tenancy agreement (i.e, in a fully serviced apartment), the tenant is responsible for all the general day to day cleaning and maintenance. This means that you can be held liable if there is a lack of proper hygiene, allow the rise and spread of mould, infestations and serious health hazards/diseases.
Tenants are expected to ensure all light bulbs are working and replace blown ones as required, often many tenants fail to keep up with this simple maintenance, and as a result, landlords will instruct an electrician to replace these bulbs at their personal rate, plus a callout/re-entry charge. A professional cleaning company such as ours can replace these bulbs for you safely, at merely the cost of the bulb.
