Before you can get your deposit back, you must ensure that the property is as immaculate and as clean as before you moved in. You must clean it before the landlord visits you to determine the condition of the place.
You can either pass or fail the inspection, depending on how the cleaning was done. Hiring a professional cleaning service enhances your chances of getting a good report.
If it doesn’t go your way, and you fail, a re-clean is necessary.
Cleaning the property all by yourself can be an arduous task, and you may not do it effectively as a professional would. After all, cleaning the garden, and the entire property is not your specialization. It is always best to leave the cleaning to the right people for efficiency and speed.
What does the end of tenancy cleaning entail?
It means a thorough cleaning of the entire property before you can get your deposit back. Thorough cleaning is not an easy task, and it must be by professional cleaners.
Cleaners have specialized equipment such as vacuum cleaners, cleaning products, steam engines, and right attire to make sure that you pass the inspection.
The period of cleaning depends on various factors such as the size of the property. It can take up to 8 hours or even a whole day if the garden is large.
Some equipment may need to be moved to do the cleaning efficiently and will require an extra charge.
Please note that pressure cleaning is not always included at the end of tenancy cleaning service because it is a bit expensive. However, you can still insist on it if you are ready to pay for the service.
Some of the places that pressure cleaning would be useful include the terrace, walls, and parking. The charges depend on the size of the surface. For example, the bigger your wall or the patio, the more the cost.
For efficiency, the garden should be empty. Move the equipment and harvest any fruits and other products before the cleaning company comes.

The majority of cleaning services offer re-cleans as a guarantee. The period of the guarantee can be between 2 and ten days depending on the policy of the cleaning firm.
It is within your right to request for a re-clean if you don’t pass the inspection by the landlord. However, you may need to provide some proof such as a list of the things that were not sufficiently cleaned, a copy of the inspection report, and clear images. But remember to do it within the guarantee period.
Some companies may be reluctant to perform a re-clean. They may reject the images or the inspection report on flimsy excuses to charge you more for extra services. However, you should be persistent and pass on the photos as well as the inspection report to them as soon as possible. They must come by and redo the cleaning adequately.
Note that the guarantee does not cover everything. Some equipment and surfaces cannot be restored to their original state, and they require replacement. For example, moldy grout and rusty showerhead are impossible to clean thoroughly and restore.
Lime scale build-up and rusty surfaces, especially on metal surfaces, are impossible to restore to its original state and is not part of the guarantee. Some equipment will need a full replacement so that you can pass the inspection, and get a full refund of the deposit.
The guarantee does not cover things that can’t be cleaned effectively, such as moldy and old window frames. The risk of damage is higher when cleaning them, and is best left alone. Cleaning companies do not want to take the risk and be held responsible for the damage.
Another service that is mostly not covered by the guarantee is steam carpet cleaning. The best results are achieved during the first session. If there are stubborn stains, a different method may be required, and that will cost you more.
Ways that you can reduce the price
One of the foolproof ways of reducing the price includes cleaning the kitchen appliances by yourself. You can also clean the gutter, and mow the lawn to minimize the tasks that a cleaning company has to do.
You can also try negotiating for a discount directly from the cleaning company. Be persistent.
