6 top tips for the all-important end of tenancy clean

If you are moving out of a rented property then you’ll have to make sure it’s just as clean as when you moved in to stand a chance of getting your deposit back. The chances are you haven’t been doing a deep clean every week, so there’s bound to be a bit of dust and grime that’s built up. Landlords are notorious for deducting sums from deposits to cover the clean-up of things you may have missed.

If you are determined to get your deposit back then you’ll need to make sure everything is sparkling clean. We can of course do it for you if you are worried about doing a thorough enough job. Our cleaning team are experts at end of tenancy cleans and will ensure your landlord is delighted with the cleanliness of the home you are about to leave.

Before you start cleaning, contact your landlord to get a copy of the final inspection checklist. If you’re doing the clean yourself, here’s our 6 top tips to help you pass the final inspection.

1 – The Kitchen

Empty all the cupboards and shelves and wipe clean, clearing any crumbs or deposits. Wipe the insides and outsides of the cupboard doors too. Do your best to pull out appliances and clean behind them as well as the floor underneath them. Wipe dust from the back of appliances with a dry cloth. Don’t forget to clean the fridge inside and out. Pull shelves out so you can clean all the grooves and the shelves too. Defrost the freezer and wipe out if you have one. Clean the microwave thoroughly too.

2 – The Oven and Hob

There’s nothing worse than cleaning the grime off an oven and hob that hasn’t seen a clean in months. Burnt food deposits and thick grime can build up and makes one of the worst cleaning jobs in the kitchen. Put some extra effort into cleaning the oven, trays, rack and hobs until its sparkling. It’s one of the first things to be inspected at the end of tenancies.

3 – Kitchen and Bathroom Limescale

Limescale builds up over time around taps, in baths, sinks, toilets and showers, as well as on tiles and inside your kettle. The good news is it’s not as impossible to remove as you may think.

Various store cupboard ingredients can be effective for removing limescale. A solution of equal parts white vinegar and water, for example, is handy for descaling a kettle. Specially formulated cleaning products are also available to tackle limescale problems in the kitchen and bathroom. Leave whatever limescale remover you are using on for up to an hour (or follow instructions on particular product).

4 – The Bathroom

The bathroom is another rigorous checking point for landlords. You need to leave the bathroom spotless. Descale limescale build up and clean taps, tiles, bath, shower and toilet until they are sparkling!

5 – Windows and Window Treatments

Thoroughly clean windows on the inside (and outside if that is also the tenant’s responsibility). Dust blinds and be meticulous with venetian blinds; wipe carefully. Get curtains professionally cleaned.

6 – The Carpets

Carpets are another notorious sticking point, especially if there are any spills or stains. It could be wise to hire a proper carpet cleaner or get a professional to clean carpets for you. At the very least hoover thoroughly and use a carpet shampoo to lift any marks or stains.

Good luck with your end of tenancy clean!

The facts about Dust Mites

 

Carpet Cleaning

Dust mites are a pest and must be kept at bay.

A few facts about dust mites:

  • Dust mites can be distinguished from insects by a lack of wings and antennae, and by having eight legs.
  • Dust mites cannot be detected by the naked eye and measure 1/1000th of an inch.
  • What they lack in size they make up in numbers- a typical mattress can range from 100,000 to 10 million individual mites.
  • Dust mites mainly eat dead skin.
  • A bed is the main place that dust mites live but they also reside on furniture and carpeting.

 

Prevention:

  • Vacuum your home or office at least once a week. Try to use a small pore vacuum bag or HEPA filter. Remember that vacuums tend to put more dust into the air, so consider recruiting someone else to do the task! Supreme Cleaning in Kent are expert in ensuring that settling dust is minimal.
  • Wash your bedding once a week in hot water.
  • You could consider placing an impermeable dust mite encasement around the mattress, box spring, and pillow. This type of encasement has vinyl on the inside and cloth on the outside to trap dust mites, but does not crinkle like plain vinyl.
  • Keep stuffed animals to a minimum. Only let your child sleep with a teddy if it can be washed every week in hot water. All other stuffed animal companions should be kept in a closed toy chest.

 

You may wonder why all this is important- dust mites can cause several allergies that can be harmful to young children and the elderly. Supreme Cleaning Services offer Carpet Cleaning in Kent and will be there to ensure that your home is as resistant to dust mites as it can be, making it a safer and cleaner place to live.

End of tenancy cleaning, get your property back on the market quickly

Quite often private landlords and letting agents require their tenants to get a professional deep clean of their rented property before they return their deposit. They quite often make a checkout list which details repairs and specific cleaning requirements such as getting carpet & upholstery cleaned plus oven and kitchen/bathroom deep cleaning.

We appreciate that in the main people keep their homes clean and tidy but often, due to our busy lives, we do not get in to the nooks and crannies on a weekly basis and in order to pay attention to the detail we need to move all the furniture, empty all the cupboards, fridge/freezer etc and have a really deep clean.

At Supreme Cleaning Services we are very experienced in End of Tenancy Cleaning and have worked with many Letting Agents and private landlords in all types and sizes of property whether furnished or unfurnished. Our experienced team understand the expectations of landlords and tenants alike and will leave any property regardless of initial state sparkling clean.

The most difficult areas in any home to clean are always the kitchen, bathroom and en-suites where there tends to be a build up of grease in ovens and extractor fans and a build up of lime scale on taps, baths, tiles and shower screens which always seem to need a professional deep clean.

Professional carpet cleaning adds the final touch to any End of Tenancy clean and if the property is furnished we can clean curtains, 3 piece suites and upholstered dining chairs as well as mattresses.

As well as achieving results with great value for money we at Supreme Cleaning Services believe that customer service is paramount and we will go the extra mile to ensure that both tenant and landlord are delighted with our level of cleaning. Therefore the landlord is able to re-let the property swiftly in the knowledge that the property is clean and ready for their new tenants.
