End of tenancy cleaning service in Norwich



End of tenancy cleaning is vital to get back your deposit

The Deposit Protection Scheme confirms more than half of deposit disputes (56%) are the result of insufficient cleaning. This makes it the most common cause of deposit disputes. Surprisingly, inflicted damage comes second at 43% and redecoration third at 30%.
When you move into a new property, it’s most likely very clean on your first visit. Tenants have a right to receive a clean and hygienic property, but they must also ensure the standard is maintained for the remainder of their tenancy.
Most people don’t do a deep cleaning on a weekly basis and that counts double in the months before their moving date. However, when moving out, tenants need to make sure the property is just as clean as it was when they first moved in. Since moving is an already tense, both tenants and landlords turn to the services industry to fill in that role.

Hiring an end of tenancy self-employed cleaner

The above list is extensive, but in no way does it list everything you need to clean before you can move out with your deposit. If you don’t have the time or energy required to go through extensive cleaning, maybe hiring a professional cleaner is the solution for your move.
Before you make your booking, however, there are a few things you need to know. There are many self-employed cleaner/companies that offer the service, but not completely understand what it constitutes.

End of tenancy cleaning is designed for people moving out

To get their deposit back, tenants are in need of reliable services and result. That’s why is important that the self-employed cleaner/company you pick offers you thorough cleaning lists that covers more items in the property than you can think of. If they truly offer end of tenancy cleaning, they need to be ready to work with any provided checklist by your landlord or letting agents. Check if they clean the oven, as it’s the most difficult cleaning job in the whole property and will be required to pass the final inspection.
More important, the self-employed cleaner/cleaning company needs to guarantee you a pass on the move out inventory. If the service is not sufficient, financial compensation or a re-clean is due. The self-employed cleaner/cleaning company you hire needs to allow for at least a 24-hour guarantee for hygiene. You need this time to hold down the final inspection before the property starts to naturally accumulate dust and dirt.
A very important aspect is the quality of work. Since you have a lot of money on the line, you have to pick a self-employed cleaner/company with a preceding reputation for quality cleaning. Make sure the service is not based on time, but the size and contents of the property. The end of tenancy cleaning must endure through the final inspection. To do that the workers have to clean everything and anything until it’s perfectly clean. Having the cleaners in for an X amount of time will not make sure all the contents of the property has been thoroughly cleaned. A self-employed cleaner/cleaning company that understands this will know how important the quality of their work is for moving tenants.
After they visit, the property must be free of: 
  • Garbage
  • Hair and Fur
  • Dirt, Dust and Stains
  • Grime, Grease, Fingermarks, Smudges and Spills
  • Limescale and Surface rust
  • Hard debris, Food deposits and Leftovers
Your move out cleaning team must bring all the required tools, cleaning solutions and machines they will need to complete the job. These should be included in your final quote. If anyone asks you to pay extra for any common cleaning solution or consumable, they might try to scam you. Naturally, you shouldn’t pay anything outside of your original quote and the pre-arranged extra costs.
Look for an insured provider. You will be letting people in your home for hours without your attendance. To protect your belongings and your landlord’s property, only choose self-employed cleaner/company with vetted employees and insured services. Any damage or theft caused by the workers will be compensated by the self-employed cleaner/company.
