Does professional tenancy cleaning guarantee full deposit refund?
First, it is important to understand that working with professionals means trusting a third party to impress the landlord on your behalf. If they are licensed, certified and still in business after a few years in the market, it must mean that they are doing something right. As opposed to cleaning a house solo as you would do when DIY, professional cleaners engage the services of many employees all at once. Regardless of how complex a cleaning job is, working in a group takes less time and makes the experience quite fun. Everyone can relate to the difference between completing a task alone and doing it as part of a group. Clearly, it is more efficient, economical and faster when more people are involved.
Still not convinced that a professional end of tenancy cleaning London service is the best guarantee for getting your full deposit back?
Most landlords will give you a checklist of the areas that need thorough cleaning. These are the areas they will come back to inspect and they better be up to their standards if a consideration for deposit refund is to be made. By practice, professional cleaners ensure a top to bottom approach to cleaning. Unless the client wants specific areas of the house cleaned, cleaners already know what to do in line with their service protocol. To ensure that the person paying for the end of tenancy cleaning is satisfied beyond reproach, these companies focus on the following areas;
Living room – all the surfaces that can be seen effortlessly are wiped clean and dusted. Other areas which are cleaned but which can not immediately be noticed are lamp shades, curtain rails, light switches, picture frames; glass surfaces; wooden furniture; windows on the inside; carpet and vacuum upholstery; mop floor. The living room is then aired to get rid of cleaning detergent smell.
Bedrooms – all the drawers in the bedroom are emptied and cleaned. The same applies to shelves and flat surfaces. Other places where special attention is applied are light switches; lift and clean under mattress; wipe skirting boards; vacuum floor
Bathrooms – the bathrooms and toilets have a way of accumulating dirt over time and this sometimes damages the walls, cabinets and any items made from carbon-based materials. Thorough cleaning applies to the sink, wall tiles, shelves, cabinets, lighting fixture, switches, taps and wall mirror.
Kitchen – the kitchen is a particularly sensitive area of a house because food is prepared here. The level of cleanliness should therefore be on a high level to ensure proper hygiene and food sanitation. Appliances such as the fridge, oven, and dishwasher plus windows, and floor need attention when cleaning.
Are you able to pay attention to all these areas and do a good job? Only a professional end of tenancy cleaning can.
