If you’re about to move out of a rental property, whether personal or commercial, chances are you could benefit from hiring a professional to handle your end-of-lease cleaning. This frees you up to concentrate on the million other things you’ve got to do for moving day.

Specialist end-of-lease cleaners are experienced at all cleaning details, large and small. They can help clean your premises efficiently and effectively to save you time and money.

In this article, we’ll outline the qualities to consider when choosing an end-of-lease cleaner, and share where to find the best in Canberra.

What makes a great end-of-lease cleaning service?

As a tenant, it’s your responsibility to make sure the property you’ve occupied is left as clean and tidy as it was the day you moved in, aside from reasonable wear and tear. A professional cleaner will help you feel confident you’ll get your bond back.

It can be helpful to keep the following in mind when choosing an end-of-lease cleaner.

  • Experience. Cleaning is a skill, and the more practice a cleaner has, the better they are at it. Look for a cleaner with end-of-lease experience, as this often requires more work than regular house cleaning.
  • Attention to detail. A great end-of-lease cleaner takes pride in their work and doesn’t take shortcuts. They know property managers and landlords are good at identifying when something isn’t right. So check online to see what experience end-of-lease cleaners have.
  • Reliable. The best cleaners turn up when they say they will. They work efficiently and respond quickly to you queries. Ask your end-of-lease cleaner about call-back times and how busy they are. The last thing you need is a cleaner who is too busy to schedule in your job promptly.
  • Money-back guarantee. Check if your end-of-lease cleaner offers a money-back guarantee if the job isn’t perfect. This will help reassure you that you’ll get a quality clean.
  • High-tech equipment and methods. New technologies make cleaning faster, more thorough, and kinder to the environment. If you’re concerned about the use of harsh chemicals, ask about environmentally friendly products.

I recently moved into a small flat supposedly cleaned by Mint Cleaners at a cost of $799 but I still ended up removing three dustpan trays full of used kitty-litter from under the bathroom sink and spending two hours cleaning ‘gunk, i.e. what looked to be human and cat hairs inside the rubber seal of the front loading washing machine. Worst of all, I cleaned a large amount of black mould off the inside of blinds in one bedroom and the second bedroom still smelt strongly of cat urine although according to the itemised invoice both bedroom carpets had been steam-cleaned. Photos were taken and the real estate agent has been advised.

I would honestly be embarrassed if I had to pay someone to clean up my house for me. Irrespective of whether I was a tenant or an owner.

Cleary though I am the odd one out as there is evidently demand for this type of service ? 🤔

    Ali Reid Ali Reid 4:57 pm 26 Apr 21

    Curly Dee it’s in most rental agreements now that the house must be cleaned professionally upon the end of tenancy. Also the same service is used by people preparing to sell their properties. It’s a massive demand.

    Curly Dee Curly Dee 5:43 pm 26 Apr 21

    Ali Reid I know. I’d still be embarrassed.

Mr Guru for absolute professionalism and outstanding quality of clean. Even the real estate agent took their contact details from me.

Master Touch Cleaning Services are amazing. We moved on the worst weekend, all it did was rain. They managed to clean the house and removed all the mud and managed to do it all last minute and to a high standard.

Great information. However, this would be incomplete without these 2 local businesses Canberra Bond Cleaning and MInistry Of Cleaning
I have seen a couple of rave reviews about their services on Facebook in Canberra Notice Board.

I have tried end of lease cleaning service of Daniel and Huong 3 times for last 7 months (two rental properties). They made the properties pass inspection right the first time, with very reasonable prices. I would avoid big cleaning companies as I found small businesses can offer cheaper quotes and it is easier to contact them if anything goes wrong. If anyone is after an end of lease cleaner, you can try their service. Their number is 0410189138.

Keeto Muscat Keeto Muscat 5:38 pm 27 Jan 18

I personally would avoid the big cleaners who send anyone into your home to clean it. Avoiding cleaners who are just starting out is a common mistake. Cleaners just starting out have something to prove. I would go for them over the bigger names.

Excellent service, great people. Worth recommending Blue Cleaning Team – – 0403 6867 01

They made my moving out experience so easy. They have done my cleaning, carpets and even my lawns!

Excellent price for the work they have done (good value).

I will use them again. I totally recommend to everyone!

another +1 for Frank, used him for my place in Turner and did a great job, cleaner even stuck around during the estate agents inspection to spot clean anything they pointed out. Super accommodating with short warning and the cheapest quote I got.

We went to Mr Guru cleaning services.
They did not only an excellent job. They also fixed my fly screen and help my husband to remove heavy furniture we left behind. Without any surcharge.
Would recommend to all.
