Doing the End of Tenancy Cleaning by Yourself
There are some people who feel that they can do the end of tenancy cleaning themselves before they checkout. This way, they can save more money. Some people also like cleaning so doing this activity will not be a chore for them. This can be their way to get rid of the stress that they are feeling about moving to a new location and so much more.
One problem that people encounter when they do this is the cleaning that they have done has not passed. They have two options when this happens. The first option is they would do the cleaning by themselves again and they have to make sure that they are more thorough this time. The other option is to hire a professional cleaning company that can provide the end of tenancy cleaning services in a professional way.
When you are trying to decide whether you should hire a company or not, think about it this way: if you are the person who is going to move into the place, would you like it clean or dirty? Most if not all people would reply clean because you want to feel immediately comfortable when you see the place. If you are already moving out of the location, look at the place without any bias and ask yourself if it is as clean as you want it to be.
If in case you have decided that you still want to do the cleaning on your own, there are some tips that you can remember so that you can succeed in cleaning.
Do not forget about the windows of the place.
Often times, you are too focused on the inside portion of the property that you forget that the outside portion has gotten dirty too. According to the tenancy agreement, you should also keep the outside windows clean so this is something that you should do properly. The clerk who will check the cleaning that you have done will always check the window. If you have not cleaned it, you will not pass the cleaning test. You can choose a microfiber cloth to clean so that you can lessen the streaks on the windows.
Always clean the kitchen cupboards.
The thing about cupboards is that most people forget about cleaning them. You may think that you only need to wipe your cupboards but this will not pass when they check. You need to remove all of the items that you have placed inside the cupboards and clean the inside and the outside properly. Professional cleaners have the right tools to do the cleaning properly.
All the limescale should be removed.
There may be limescale that you will find all over your kitchen and bathroom. You may say that they have accumulated during the time that you have stayed in the place but this is not an excuse for you not to remove them. You could have prevented the limescale from forming by continuously cleaning the bathroom and kitchen area but this is not always possible. You need to find a limescale remover to remove the limescale well.
If all else fails, you can always contact a professional cleaning company to do the cleaning for you.
