When a tenant vacates a property, it will almost always require an end of tenancy clean. Most tenants will clean throughout the tenancy but the end of tenancy clean is different to the daily cleaning tasks that keep a property presentable.
An end of tenancy clean addresses issues that build up over time in a living space. They remove the deeper-rooted grime and dirt that is not visible whilst living in the property. It usually requires the use of more heavy-duty or specialist cleaning products, especially for grease or rust and most definitely for inside an oven. These products should be used with caution and normally whilst wearing protective gloves.
A move out clean covers things that domestic cleaning won’t reach such as grease and dirt underneath large kitchen appliances, inside the oven including the glass door, window frames internal and external, window glass internal and external, internal doors, front and back door, blinds, removal of limescale from bathroom sanitary ware, full dusting and cobweb removal from corners, skirting boards and behind furniture.
These jobs are likely to need to be done around every six months, depending on how many people live in the home but tenants tend to leave them for the move out clean which means they require more attention.
Why do we need to carry out an end of tenancy clean?
A high portion of deposit deductions are for cleaning related issues at the end of the tenancy. When the tenant vacates the property it can reveal dirt and dilapidation that would otherwise remain unseen. A move out clean tackles the issues that can build up and cause hard to remove stains or dirt and could even cause appliances to not function. Many people simply do not have the time to move kitchen appliances and furniture to clean behind them or to carry out a frequent and full deep oven clean, so it gets left for the move out clean.
The end of tenancy clean is an important factor in the tenancy for the new tenants. When a tenant moves into a property that has had a deep clean before they moved in, it sets the standard of expectation for when they come to leave themselves as-well as how the property should be kept whilst they occupy it.
Having the end of tenancy clean carried out by a commercial cleaning company takes the pressure away from both tenant and landlord. Cleanliness can be a matter of opinion which varies greatly from person to person, coupled with the fact that a move out clean will probably address areas that many people might not even think of, for example cleaning inside kitchen cupboards or removing limescale from a shower screen, the end of tenancy clean can be a sticking point over deposit deductions. Handing over the end of tenancy clean to a professional commercial cleaning company means that nothing gets overlooked.
