How Clean Should An End Of Lease Property Be?
Published on Friday, 23 May 2014
For those who are renting a property, the changeover in occupants can be a difficult time. It is not just the change itself which can be difficult, but the process of getting the entire home ready for someone new to live inside. Depending on the people who were previously occupying the space, this could mean that there is a great deal of work to do or none at all. When it comes to end of lease cleaning, then getting everything ready for the new tenants is the main thing, no matter how much there is to do. But just how clean do you need to make everything? The amount of cleaning which will need to be done will vary depending on the size and the type of the property. For example a small, unfurnished flat will often be empty and need a great deal less time and attention than a large, fully furnished town house. However, despite the amount of things which are in the home, and the size of the home itself, the amount of cleaning which needs to be done is still relatively similar. No matter what the circumstances of the property, you are still aiming to reach a high level of cleanliness. This means that there is not a differing standard of cleanliness (i.e., as clean as possible) but rather a different amount of work which will be required in order to make sure that it reaches that level. So perhaps one of the most difficult things to accomplish is to get rid of the difficult stains and marks. This can often slow you down, especially when it comes to those problems which you unsure of the cause. The process of removing stains and marks can be complicated and in a time orientated situation such as end of tenancy cleaning, this can be a factor which slows you down hugely. As such, the temptation can be to avoid these issues and leave them there for the next occupant. However, the best way in which you can make sure that everything is done properly and on time can often be to turn towards the professionals. This means that you are able to get everything as clean as possible for whoever is moving in while still keeping an eye on the time. Making sure that a clean property is cleaned to the highest possible standards, however, can often be more beneficial than a simple gesture towards those who are going to move into the property. the issue of setting up and maintaining a security deposit is not just a case of a one off, but making sure the property is as clean as possible will demonstrate to the new occupant a great base level of cleanliness which the tenant can then return to at the end of the lease in order to make sure that they get the most amount of money back and leave the property in a good condition in the future. Thus, making sure that the property benefits from the best cleaning can be hugely helpful. For many people, the prospect of cleaning a property themselves can be daunting. Depending on the size and scale of the home, the amount of cleaning can vary massively. Coupled with that, the prospect of having to do the cleaning in a short amount of time can mean that there can often seem like there is too much to do in too short a time. But this is often not the case. By planning correctly and making sure that you get the best help, it can be easy to make sure that the home is as clean as it can possibly be, ready for the new occupants.
