Frequently asked questions

Why do I need an end of tenancy clean before I move out?

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.

What’s the difference between regular cleaning and end of tenancy cleaning?

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

Cleaning of kitchen appliances and white goods is included as standard in an end of tenancy clean, and the cleaners will move furniture to clean beneath. All cupboards will be cleaned - inside and out - as well as inside windows.

All tasks included in a standard home clean - including mopping, vacuuming and surface cleaning - are also completed during an end of tenancy clean.

How do I add special requirements to an end of tenancy clean?

If you have any other specific requirements, please do let us know about these in the 'Other Details' field when requesting a quote.

End of tenancy cleaning does not include the cleaning of walls or ceilings.

Which items can be left in the property during an end of tenancy clean?

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.

How do I add outdoor areas to an end of tenancy clean?

If you have a patio or balcony, cleaning this can be included to your end of tenancy clean, as can cleaning the outside of your windows. If you're looking to book these services, please do let us know in the 'Other Details' field when requesting a quote.

What is Housekeep doing to stay COVID-19 secure?

We're using enhanced cleaning, handwashing and hygeine procedures, and we're asking customers and cleaners to maintain social distancing at all end of tenancy cleans.
