A professional end of tenancy cleaning service is an ideal choice if you are soon to be handing the keys to your rental home back to the landlord or letting agency and want it to be in the best condition possible. Your tenancy agreement might instruct you to have the property professionally cleaned at the end of the tenancy or this might simply be something that you want to do in order to ensure that you are in with the best chance of getting your security deposit back in full. Before you book a professional cleaning service, it’s a good idea ask ‘what does an end of tenancy clean include?’ and to know what to expect.

Kitchen Cleaning

The kitchen is the heart of the home and returning it in top condition is always essential. A professional end of tenancy clean ensures that all those areas in your kitchen that might be hard to clean on your own are shining and gleaming. It will involve thoroughly cleaning and degreasing the oven, cleaning and defrosting any appliances and white goods like your fridge and freezer, deep cleaning any floors and tiles, inside of cupboards, wiping down painted woodwork and generally dusting and cleaning throughout. The sink and taps will be thoroughly descaled and if a dishwasher is included in the tenancy, the appliance and filter will be cleaned.

Bathroom Cleaning

The bathroom is another much-used room in the home that’s important to return clean and tidy. End of tenancy cleaning services will pay special attention to the bathroom to ensure that it is free of any dirt and mould before you hand the keys back. All bathroom furniture, fixtures, fittings, and tiles will be thoroughly cleaned and descaled, drains will be unblocked if necessary, and the floors will be thoroughly cleaned and washed. Bathroom mirrors will be cleaned and polished and your bathroom cupboards will be emptied and cleaned both inside and out.

General Cleaning

Throughout the rest of your home, the end of tenancy cleaning in London includes thoroughly vacuuming, dusting, and polishing all surfaces including ceilings, walls, and floors. All painted woodwork will be wiped down along with skirtings, radiators, mirrors, picture frames, fire surrounds and light switches.

All flooring will be vacuumed and washed where appropriate and windows will be thoroughly cleaned both internally and externally wherever possible. Any shelves, cupboards and drawers will be thoroughly emptied and cleaned and any soft furnishings that are included in the tenancy such as sofas and beds will be vacuumed and deep cleaned too. Any other furniture that is included in the tenancy will be dusted and polished.

What Does an End of Tenancy Clean Include? Additional Services.

You can book either a basic end of tenancy cleaning service or a more advanced service that includes a thorough cleaning of all carpets. The cost for your end of tenancy cleaning including carpet washing will depend on the number of rooms and bedrooms in the home. Carpet cleaning is an ideal choice for carpeted bedrooms or a home that is carpeted throughout as it thoroughly rids the carpet of any embedded dirt and returns them to as good as new condition as possible. First, the carpets will be thoroughly vacuumed before they are treated with carpet shampoo that will remove any deeply embedded dirt that the vacuum cannot reach.

Whether you’re moving to purchase a home, your tenancy agreement has come to an end or you need to move into a more suitable property, your landlord will certainly thank you for investing in an end of tenancy cleaning service.

Professionals who can ensure that the property is handed back in the best possible condition will help you make sure that you get all of your security deposit back – and a good reference.
