Most people have experienced the ‘’joys’’ of end of tenancy cleaning. Rented accommodations usually come with that ‘’extra’’ just to make your move out even more stressful. If you are a landlord, end of tenancy cleaning is a blessing as your tenants will be the ones breaking a sweat over your property. However, if you are a tenant, you have to pull your sleeves up and get to work.
End of tenancy cleaning is dreaded by most tenants because it usually involves days and days of hard work to get rid of dirt and bacteria gathered through the years. Some tenants choose to hire professional help to do that for them so they have more time to prepare their move. Whichever option you choose, end of tenancy cleaning has to be done so you can get your initial security deposit back.
If you decide to go for it yourself, there is an easy way to get the 3-4 day cleaning job down to 3-4 hour job. For the task you will need an army of friends, good cleaning products and good cleaning equipment. Delegate tasks to your cleaners and allocate a room to each one. If you have managed to lure more friends into helping, then put two in each room. Give them a list of every area that needs to be cleaned and tell them they have 2 hours to do the job. Use homemade cleaning products and steam cleaners. This way you will not compromise the health of your helpers and using steam is well known for easy and quick cleaning of bacteria and germs.
Once you have finished with the end of tenancy cleaning, inspect every room of the property like a landlord would and if you see any missed spots, go over them yourself when everybody is gone.
