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.
