With moving house now back on the cards after the national lockdown and restrictions of the COVID19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever before to leave your rented property cleaner than ever by protecting your property with an antiviral end of tenancy clean. Landlords and tenants are working hard to ensure that ending and beginning new tenancies does not become a hotspot for spreading COVID19. Regardless of whether or not you have caught the virus in the past yourself, there are several reasons to consider an antiviral end of tenancy clean to leave the property as safe as possible.

How End of Tenancy Cleaning Inhibits the Spread of COVID19

The novel coronavirus that causes the disease known as COVID19, along with other harmful microorganisms, can live on surfaces within your home. You may have brought it home on your shoes or your outdoor clothes without even realising it. COVID19 is commonly spread through touching surfaces that are infected with the virus and then touching yourself on the face. At the end of a tenancy, viewings, movers, and new tenants will be coming and going – making it more important than ever to ensure that the property is completely rid of any lurking viruses, which can be killed with good antiviral deep cleaning services.

How an EOT Antiviral Clean Protects Your Property

Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, you’re responsible for ensuring that the end of tenancy does not increase the spread of COVID19. An antiviral property cleaning service will completely cover every surface in the home with approved disinfectants, ensuring that any viruses on surfaces are completely gone. This is done using a fogging machine operated by professionals wearing specialised safety gear such as protective footwear, goggles, gloves, and masks. It ensures that no surface is left untouched by dispersing the cleaning solution into the air in the form of microscopic droplets.

What is Different About an Antiviral End of Tenancy Clean?

While both of these cleaning services are very thorough, the main difference between a standard end of tenancy cleaning and an end of tenancy antiviral clean is that end of tenancy antiviral clean goes deeper and really covers every surface. A standard end of tenancy clean is carried out by professionals who use approved disinfectants and cleaning solutions with standard cleaning tools such as cloths, sponges, and brushes. This means that there is always a risk that not every single surface will be cleaned in the property.

On the other hand, a fogging machine is used during an antiviral end of tenancy clean to completely cover every single surface with disinfectant to leave the property in as safe a condition as possible.

The Benefits of an Antiviral End of Tenancy Clean 

Opting for an antiviral end of tenancy clean has several benefits for both landlords and tenants.

For tenants:

  • Ensure the property is handed back as clean and safe as possible
  • Improve your chance of having your full deposit returned
  • Reduce your risk of getting sick from COVID19 or other harmful diseases while cleaning

For landlords:

  • Ensure that the property is safe to move into during a pandemic
  • If conducting viewings while the property is empty, it may encourage more viewings
  • Reduce the risk of future tenants becoming sick with COVID19

At the end of a tenancy, the COVID19 pandemic has made it more important than ever to ensure that the property is thoroughly cleaned and safe from any harmful microorganisms such as the novel coronavirus, which can live on various surfaces for up to several weeks. Whether you’re currently in the process of moving out of a rented property or are a landlord looking to make your property safer for new tenants to move into, get in touch to book an antiviral end of tenancy clean today.
