Landlords and tenants – it’s undoubtedly a complicated relationship. There are usually arguments between them, and there’s seldom a single solution.

When it finally comes to the end of tenancy cleaning, the tenant is leaving for good and problems are all over. At least, until the current one actually leaves the property in a significantly well-organized condition, ready for the next one to rent the place.

But what if the property is ruined and both sides of the battle haven’t reached an agreement on who to do the dirty work, or somehow aren’t able to do it themselves?

Eventually, that’s when the end of tenancy cleaning service is so desperately needed. While in most contracts it’s specifically mentioned who’ll pay for this service, it’s a rather stressful and questionable experience.

Apart from any questions, end of tenancy cleaning is a must-do thing you might want to get started with, immediately. Even if it’s what the money for your rental deposit goes for, you surely are curious about what the end of tenancy checklist includes exactly.

  • First of all, it’s important to understand that end of tenancy cleaning is a full-pack service, and it covers your home, as a whole. That basically means you have to go through your house/apartment – all the way from your kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, right to your living room.
  • Every detail of the end of tenancy cleaning is essential, by itself. For example, if you have a yard, maybe you should think about carpet cleaning, entrance, hallway, and stairs cleaning, and what’s supposed to be the hardest: oven cleaning/or grill cleaning (it goes by the same basic principles).
  • A smart idea would be also to make a strategic plan on the steps you’re going to make, in order to fulfill the process. Your best move with the end of tenancy cleaning is to divide it into sections, regarding the rooms, which your property includes
  • If you wish to get prepared, like a pro – act as if you really mean it and read all the easy-to-find online materials or how-to videos. It’s your decision to make, but in order to be honest there are some pretty good home tricks you’ll be able to apply yourself.

Check for example how to clean sticky grease off kitchen cabinets, and you’ll see how amazingly useful baking soda, vinegar, and dish soap, are just left in the cupboard.
