End of tenancy tips to avoid unnecessary headaches

When it’s time to move out of an office or house, you can always guarantee that they will be a lot of cleaning to do. While many people can create an efficient schedule to get the job done, there are always a few extra things that cause problems for you if you aren’t careful. Fortunately, I’ve created a handy guide to help you eliminate potential headaches during your end-of-tenancy cleaning.

Pay attention to the upholstery
From the leather on your sofas to the padding on your chairs, there are so many places that require intricate cleaning. If you are leaving furniture behind when you move, you have to make sure it is clean and dirt free for the next tenants moving in. Normally, I would recommend using a good and powerful vacuum cleaner but, if you really want to leave the place spotless, I suggest you invest in a good upholstery cleaning service. If need be, you might also need to hire professionals to fix any damaged sofas, chairs, etc.

Double-check your written agreements
Most tenancy agreements have a list of rules regarding end-of-tenancy cleaning. Many people who ignore these rules tend to find themselves losing their deposits because they damaged something or didn’t do a good job per the agreement. Once you have an idea of what your landlord is expecting, you can make a checklist of everything you need to clean and repair before the final inspection.

Time management is important
End-of-tenancy cleaning is a hassle and when done in a rush, you run the risk of missing important spots and even breaking things. If you want to make sure that everything is in order before the final inspection, I suggest you schedule your end-of-tenancy cleaning at least 2 weeks before you have to move.

Remember your carpets
Carpets collect an incredible amount of dirt over time if they are not being deep cleaned on a regular basis. This is why it is very important to ensure that they are cleaned in advance before you leave. Hiring a good carpet cleaning company can help you out and give you time to focus on other cleaning jobs. In the event that you can’t afford a professional carpet cleaning service, you can always vacuum your carpets thoroughly before you move.
