You’ve finished the lease on your house or office and are already thinking of the new property, the move and how the new space will work for you. 

Cleaning the old place is often not at the top of your priorities list. Additionally cleaning may have slipped in the weeks before a move and the move itself will have thrown up a great deal of dirt and dust. 

You may think a quick clean before you hand the keys back will be enough. 

This is not the case.

Landlords can withhold the deposit if the property is not as clean as when the tenancy started and clean enough for the next tenants to move in. They will hire in a cleaning company and deduct the cost from your deposit. 

As good as your cleaning is, it is best to get a professional company in to carry out an End of Tenancy Clean for the property. This means you can choose the company that offers the best service for a price that suits you – not the company that suits your landlord.

An End of Tenancy Clean is a top-to-toe clean, and is a service designed specifically for rented properties.

Here at Ovenbliss an End of Tenancy service would include a kitchen deep clean, bathroom deep clean and carpet cleaning. 

This involves cleaning all surfaces, cupboards, paintwork, doorframes, radiators, light fittings as well as a deep clean of all of the white goods in the kitchen including the oven. 

Internal windows and window frames would also be cleaned as well as underneath any furniture and appliances. 

According to the Tenants Voice, 56% of all disputes over withheld deposits were over the cleanliness of the property. 

Why take the risk?

Depending on the size of the property and the level of dirt an End of Tenancy Clean can take a few hours to a full day to complete. 

Unless you have the time to spend on a thorough deep clean yourself, as well as the ability to hire and use specialist equipment (e.g. a steam cleaner) needed for deep cleaning it is easier to hire in the professionals. 

Here at OvenBliss this is what we do. We do the cleaning so you don’t have to.
