Is a guarantee provided?
Trusted companies are more than happy to offer financial compensation, or even a second cleaning of the property for free if standards aren’t met. A 24-hour guarantee will allow you to arrange for your landlord to come and inspect the property to ensure the quality of the clean will get you your deposit back in full.
Is there a checklist?
A thorough checklist that’s strictly followed by Abingdon cleaners will ensure that no part of the property is missed. The list should cover general cleaning as well as individual rooms with a further breakdown of duties. This detailed cleaning should be a full top to bottom cleaning package that has been designed specifically for rented properties.
A complete end of tenancy clean should include:
Entrance and hallways – particular attention will be paid to areas of high footfall
Kitchen – cleaning sinks and taps, removing limescale, cleaning inside all cupboards and drawers, washing and polishing work surfaces, cleaning oven, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, and washing machine, light fittings and skirting boards, tiles, and floors cleaned, mopped, or vacuumed, bins emptied and cleaned
Bedrooms – cleaning windows and doors, furniture, inside and outside of cupboards and wardrobes, light fittings, mirrors and pictures, skirting boards, and full vacuuming of carpets and under beds
Bathrooms – cleaning and disinfecting toilet seat and bowl, cleaning and washing bath and shower areas, cleaning tiles and removing limescale, descaling and polishing taps and showerheads, cleaning all cupboards, fixtures and fittings, windows, doors, and light fittings, and mopping the floor
Lounge and sitting rooms – windows and doors cleaned, furniture wiped clean, cupboards cleaned inside and out, all electronic equipment cleaned such as TV, DVD players, skirting boards, and full vacuuming of sofas and chairs including cleaning behind the cushions
Any additional specific tasks can be included as the above checklist is not limited to these particular cleaning jobs. Remember that your landlord may have a move out checklist too which will include the condition that the rental property should be left in, alongside any move-out procedures and obligations. You may be given a breakdown room by room, or simply general terms of what is expected. You’ll be able to tailor this checklist to meet the specific needs of the property.
Is there a pricing policy?
A professional cleaning cost should be based on the size of the property and not how long the actual cleaning process takes. The end result needs to be immaculate – and this cannot always be achieved if time is a factor. This means whatever size of property you have the rates will be fair.
You’ll need to also determine whether the cleaners will bring all the essential cleaning equipment and solutions with them, or if you have the option of them using yours. Ask for a quote in advance so that you can budget for VAT and any other taxes – and this pre-arranged price will be the cost you pay.
Is the service fully insured?
