The end of tenancy clean is one of the main things you need to ensure if you are moving out of rented accommodation, or even just moving home, the end of tenancy clean is one of the things that is often left to the last minute and organising the cleaners. If you are moving from rented accommodation most tenancy agreements stipulate you are required to have the property professionally cleaned with an end of tenancy clean, and you definitely want to make sure you get your bond back!
At Kiwi we recommend that for any end of tenancy clean you use a reputable company, because let’s face it, cheap and cheerful isn’t always the best option when you have a substantial amount of money at stake with a rental bond. So what is the best option then for an end of tenancy clean? There are two options that we recommend, getting either a light clean or a general clean. The light clean covers all the surfaces, walls etc, while a general clean will include all of these plus steam cleaning of carpets, oven de-grease and curtains. Typically we recommend the general clean, as most people simply do not have the time to do the work themselves, and moving is stressful enough. If you do have the time though, why not get the gloves on and get stuck in doing the work yourself. You can hire carpet cleaning machines very easily and elbow grease is free! If you are unhappy with any aspects of your clean, a reputable company that you use for the end of tenancy clean should fix any problem areas for you free of charge.
Ultimately your decision on which cleaning service to use for the end of tenancy clean will depend on your budget and the time you have available. Just be careful though because if you do take a few shortcuts and the landlord or management company are unhappy, you may end up facing a far larger bill than the cost of a end of tenancy clean with deductions from your rental bond
