What is end of tenancy cleaning?

When a tenant moves out of a rental residence, professional end of tenancy etiquette is not always found to be the case. Oftentimes, tenants can leave behind the most enormous mess of rubbish, furniture, and all manner of things.

End of tenancy cleaning is a professional service that is offered to property owners to address large messes and sanitation procedures needed for rental properties after a tenant moves away. These services include removal of rubbish, sanitation, and restoration of structures to the foundation caused by lived-in habits, as well as carpet cleaning.

End of tenancy cleaning explained

When renters decide to rent out the properties they own or manage, and tenants agree to move into the property, a rental agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the rental will be discussed and agreed to by both parties.

One of these agreements is almost always the condition of a rental deposit that secures the overall value of the property in the case of any damage or theft caused by the tenant.

One of the primary reasons behind a deposit is the security it provides a landlord at end of the tenancy if the tenant neglects to properly clean the unit after their departure.

When a tenant moves out of a rented property, the common perception is that they need to have the property professionally cleaned in order to get their deposit back.

But as of recently, this is no longer the case. Tenants are not obliged to hire professional end of tenancy cleaners, and instead can have the property cleaned themselves.

The problem is, attempting this with little knowledge of what and how to clean to the standard that inventory clerks expect when inspecting, leads to a failed inventory, unnecessary hassle, and hefty deductions from the deposit.

This is why a professional end-of-tenancy clean service should be strongly considered by any tenant preparing to move out of a rental property to ensure they receive their deposit back in full.

What does an end-of-tenancy clean include?

An end-of-tenancy cleaning service tackles the most obvious aspects of cleaning that are noticeable to the naked eye immediately. But there is also the hidden dirt and grime that can build up all over the rental property.

Let’s take a look at each of these areas to discuss what is included in each professional end of tenancy clean.

Kitchen

The kitchen is used regularly each day for both cooking and socialising, thus it is no wonder our kitchens become unclean quickly. As a result, our friendly and professional kitchen cleaning team is at hand to restore your kitchen to a pristine space once more.

Bathroom

Owing to how often we use them, bathrooms can quickly become riddled with dirt, grime, and bacteria, despite being the room we go to get clean.

In fact, an unclean bathroom is not only an eyesore, but it can also have a major effect on your wellbeing and health. A build-up of mould and dust, for example, can result in health worries for those who suffer from respiratory problems.

Our move out cleaning service will clean all windows and doors until they shine. All the bedroom furniture will be wiped over and cleaned, inside and outside.

Cupboards and wardrobes will be cleaned to perfection. The light fittings will be well cleaned so that they sparkle. A thorough hoovering of carpets, under beds, or moping if applicable will also be performed to have the bedroom walk-in ready.

FAQs

Every property is different and in order to retain quality standards, a high-quality cleaning company will avoid offering definite time frames on how long a clean will take. Once we have a better idea of how many rooms need cleaning and what additional services are needed (if any), we can offer a more accurate estimate on how long it will take. Generally speaking, our team can perform an entire satisfactory clean within a day.

At PMP, we believe in providing our clients the most comprehensive services at a fraction of the competitor's prices. With this in mind, end of tenancy cleaning service prices can range depending on the overall amount of rubbish that needs to be removed and the accessibility to reach all the areas that need to be deep-cleaned throughout your home depending on the ease of accessing these areas. End of tenancy clean services can be a tricky thing to try and assess, therefore, the best method for an end of tenancy clean service is to use it to visit the property and do a visual inspection of what needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Our end of tenancy clean prices will reflect the particulars of the job as well as our service guarantee to offer fair and affordable prices based on the overall job.

If you are a tenant who is renting in London and you want to make sure that you receive your full deposit from your landlord or letting agency after you move out, you must leave the property in a clean and orderly state as mentioned in your rental contract. More than half of today’s deposit disputes in London are related to unkempt or unclean properties. As the tenant, you may prefer to do the deep clean yourself, but by hiring a professional cleaning company like us, you make sure that the whole property at the post tenancy address is left in a superbly neat and tidy condition when you vacate. With our thorough and accurate service, there is no doubt about getting your deposit back.
By rule and precedent, a London house clearance company will only take the specific items that are specified by the client. This specification will typically be in writing to protect both parties and to ensure that the customers' specific removal requests have been completely met and satisfied. At PMP, we prioritise customer satisfaction above anything else in our service commitment. Therefore, we are always open and approachable at any time if there is a change in your removal request or if you would like a team to take some additional items that were not previously agreed upon. We can take virtually anything that a customer would like to be removed from their home. By necessity, if certain items are very large and bulky, such as old vehicles or heavy pieces of machinery and equipment, it is helpful to reach out to us beforehand to ensure that this is an item that we can feasibly remove from a property based on the available equipment that we have.
In all honesty, yes you do need to seriously consider professional tenancy cleaning in London. Landlords will deduct the cost of cleaning from the deposit for hiring a cleaning company if they find the property to be below their standard of cleanliness. Whilst most people opt to hire a professional cleaning service to handle their post-tenancy clean to avoid losing out on their deposit, some tenants will try and do this themselves. You can certainly attempt this, but you will need to use sharp precision and a fine-toothed comb to ensure you have returned the property to how it was when you first walked in the door, however long ago that may have been. The longer your tenancy was, the deeper the clean will need to be.

Yes, you can be charged and most likely will be if the landlord or property owner is not satisfied with the state of the unit. The Office of Fair Trading has issued a guide that deals with cleaning charges and excessive cleaning charges.

This can be a matter of controversy and dispute between both the tenant and the landlord. And with this in mind, there are an equal amount of instances where the tenant could be in the wrong, yet also the landlord if they are intentionally trying to fabricate the cleanliness of a unit to a standard that is not realistic.

A good way to get around all of this is to hire a professional service to perform the cleaning and to ensure accurate cleaning has been performed to a top-tier standard.

The best preparation to take is to ensure that the entire unit is completely empty of everything that did not originally come with the unit upon the initiation of the rental.

If you rented a furnished unit, these items must be left behind, and be sure to let us know beforehand so we can arrange for the proper and safe cleaning of these items that come with the rental.

The most important thing that a tenant can do in preparation for this service is to make sure the unit is easily accessible according to the checklist we will provide you. Make sure our team can walk freely and move around with ease as this will greatly speed up the pace at which we can service the unit and have the job completed.

Additionally, it will also help to completely empty and pack up all personal belongings inside the unit if you haven't done so already. This includes everything inside of drawers, as well as all the content inside of the cabinets, refrigerator, freezer, virtually anything that belongs to you should be out of the way so our cleaners can maintain a visual picture of what the unit needs to look like post-tenancy.

If you need help emptying out your property or, if you have a lot of excess junk that you no longer need and want to be removed, we can also take care of this for you with our house clearing service as well.

At PMP, we want to ensure that every service you need is readily available and can simply be added to an existing service that you have already requested. We will work with you to find the best rate for combined services if needed.

End of tenancy cleaning normally consists of a thorough clean of the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. All surfaces, floors, tiles, carpets, walls, and windows will need to be cleaned to a high standard.

The best way to think of this service is to visualise the unit in the state it was in when you first moved in. We strive to ensure that unit will be returned to that original state, and this will ensure that your deposit is returned to you in full.

Dust and dirt will need to be removed and cobwebs cleared out of hard-to-reach places. Appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines will also need to be cleaned out. By now you’ll realise that the list goes on and most people will certainly miss out on minor details that will cost them their deposit.
