Move Out Cleaning Checklist


The End of Tenancy cleaning can be described as a top-to-bottom cleaning of the entire property, with the only 2 exceptions being the painted walls and the ceilings. The service is with a 7 days guarantee, meaning that if by any chance the client, an agency, landlord or whoever is not happy with the cleaning provided, as long as we are contacted within these 7 days, we’ll be able to offer a re-cleaning session, free of charge.
