Moving out can be stressful. When it comes to retrieving your deposit, other than the inventory check, the condition of your rental property is crucial. While other elements of your lease agreement vary from landlord to landlord, the one thing all rental owners want is cleanliness. Other than that it’s time-consuming. So here is a short guide on what to get done before the check-out cleaners arrive.

Must-do: Communicate!

If you have any doubts be sure to ask before the arrival of the cleaners. Communication is key to getting what you want. Ask if there are any specific requirements from the cleaning team. For example, if they need all rubbish to be thrown out beforehand.
This is also a good way to get across any special instructions you may have for the cleaners. Whether they be guidelines as to how to deal with a household pet or a fiddly piece of furniture. Even leaving a note to reassure yourself that nothing will be left out may be a good idea.

Don’t forget to de-clutter before end of lease cleaners!

Check-out cleaning teams can give you better results while getting it done much more time-efficiently. Here is a short checklist of must-do’s before the move-out cleaners:

  1. If you have any fragile ornaments or objects you don’t want broken, package them up in bubble wrap ready for moving and put them away (suitcase, cupboard).
  2. Make sure you tidy up any important documents, papers, and notes. Here’s a quick tip: put them in a polly pocket or a folder all together so as you don’t lose them while moving house.
  3. Wash up and put away any dirty dishes around the place.
  4. Put away all pet/children’s toys. They can be sneaky and trip someone up!
  5. Make sure your kitchen appliances are neatly in place and not strewn all over the countertops.
  6. Throw out any kitchen waste and rubbish that’s in the rental.
  7. Make sure all your toiletries are put away neatly. Having to move them around to clean takes up lots of time.
  8. Said in one sentence: make sure all your nicks and nacks are neat and out of the way.
