You are now moving to a new location and you are excited about it but you are also stressed at the same time. One of the things that you have to focus on is the end of tenancy cleaning. Some people choose to do the cleaning on their own but there are also some who are aware that cleaning can be complicated especially if they do not have the right cleaning materials and supplies to make the cleaning possible.
Reading the End of Tenancy Agreement
You will usually have an agreement that you need to refer to before you move out. This agreement will specify how the house would need to be when you leave. If in case you have damaged some portions of the house or some of its furniture, you need to inform the owner about it so that a solution can be set into place.
The landlord will usually require an additional payment for the items that you have broken or the areas that you have damaged. The details may be written in the agreement. Reading the agreement again will help you understand what things you should do.
Doing the End of Tenancy Cleaning
Let us say that you have decided that you will do the end of tenancy cleaning on your own. You need to be prepared to do a lot of cleaning. You are also recommended to start early so that you can finish on time. If in case the way that you cleaned is not enough to please your landlord, you will still have time to contact a professional cleaning company.
You may be given an inspection checklist by the landlord so that you will know what areas of the house you need to focus on more. Some of the usual things that you will be asked to do are the following:
⦁ Make sure that all of the kitchen cupboards have been cleaned thoroughly. This means that you need to remove all of the items that you have placed inside the cupboard and clean them inside and outside.
⦁ Take a look at the dishwasher and the washing machine that has served you well the whole time that you were living the house. You need to check if there is grime that started to build up. Remove the grime thoroughly with the use of the right cleaning materials.
⦁ Another thing that you have to look at is your oven. You have to admit that a lot of people are unhappy about their oven because of the leftover food and grease that were not removed immediately. You can do the cleaning on your own but most people would recommend hiring professionals for this as this can be a bit complicated to clean.
⦁ Use a vacuum cleaner in order to remove the dust from the different carpets all over your home. You may also need to use the vacuum cleaner on the sofas if you feel that your sofa needs to be cleaned soon.
⦁ The plug holes in the bathroom should be clean and make sure that the water will be able to flow easily if needed.
There are still a lot more that may be written on the checklist. Be thorough in cleaning and you will get the approval that you want from the landlord.
