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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Review:

“Great clean as always. I appreciate the thoroughness and attention to detail - e.g. to clean in between the little railings of the dishes drying rack; the towels folded nicely on the heating rack in the bathroom; the bed made in the nursery looking so beautiful. As well as a reminder to buy the cleaning products that get used up! Laura has been our cleaner for a long time and we have no plans to change, she's just great and leaves everything perfect..”

Review:

“As always, great job and attention to detail, efficiency and common sense applied. In this particular ocassion I must say I was very touched by Laura's gesture - as it was my birthday and I left shortly after she arrived to take the day out for myself, and when I arrived back home well after she had finished she had actually brought me a flower bouquet! This made my day, such a beautiful gesture..”
