Frequently asked questions

Most tenancy agreements require you to organise an end of tenancy clean prior to checking out of the property.

If you do not organise a clean, and the property fails to meet the landlord’s requirements for cleanliness, you may have a fee deducted from your security deposit to cover the cost of cleaning.

End of tenancy cleaning is more thorough than a standard home clean, and takes longer to complete. It’s designed to thoroughly clean a property before new tenants move in.

Cleaning of kitchen appliances and white goods is included as standard in an end of tenancy clean. All cupboards will be cleaned - inside and out - as well as inside windows.

All standard cleaning tasks - like mopping, vacuuming and surface cleaning - are also completed during an end of tenancy clean.

Our end of tenancy cleaning service is the most thorough clean you can book. It's designed for homes that are completely empty, so the cleaning team can clean even more hard-to-reach areas - including the inside of cupboards & appliances.

Our deep cleaning service is more thorough than regular cleaning, but is designed for homes that are still being lived in.

Ideally the property should be fully cleared. The only items that should be left in the property are those staying in the property after your tenancy ends. If you require the inside of cupboards to be cleaned, these will need to be emptied in advance of the clean.

We take a card payment when you book. We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express payment cards. 

We can collect keys from a key safe, a neighbour or your estate agent (within a ten minute journey of the property). Just let us know where the keys will be in the ‘Any other details?’ section of the booking form.

It usually takes your cleaning team 3-5 hours to complete an end of tenancy clean.

The cleaning team will bring everything they need for your end of tenancy clean, including all products and a vacuum cleaner.

If we miss anything, let us know within 72 hours and we’ll come back and reclean it for free.

“Happy with my clean by Eugene. He was on time, friendly & polite. As it was the first time he was here he checked to see if I was happy with the result as he finished each area and addressed any comments I had. A nice touch was that he let me know if any of my cleaning products finished during the clean so I knew to restock..”
