A bond cleaner is more than your typical house cleaner.
Regular house cleaning typically is limited to cleaning the kitchen and bathroom surfaces, dusting and vacuuming furniture and carpets, mopping tiled floors, emptying rubbish bins, and arranging the home. A bond cleaner goes far deeper into the cleaning world. If are moving homes within Perth, contact the us as we are the go to solution for end of lease cleaning Perth.
There is no legal requirement to clean your home, but there’s a legal requirement to perform a bond clean before ending a tenancy and moving out.
Also known as an end-of-lease clean, exit clean, or vacate clean, a bond clean is the thorough cleaning of a rental property at the end of your tenancy. Failure to perform a bond clean means you won’t get your bond money back.
What’s more, not performing the bond clean properly also can mean forfeiting all or part of your bond refund. Considering that a bond amount can be up to or more than a month’s rent, it’s worth investing in a professional bond cleaner to get the job done right.
The object of a bond clean is to restore a property to its condition at the start of the tenancy. If the landlord or real-estate agent determines that part of the property requires additional cleaning or there is damage to the home, the cost for the cleaning or damage also may be deducted from your bond.
To ensure a bond clean is done to the satisfaction of the landlord or real-estate agent, we’re providing you with a bond cleaning checklist. A professional bond cleaner will help you meet the specifications in the list by performing the following:
- Oven and Range Hood: Grease build-up will occur in and around ovens and range hoods. The more frequently and intensively you use these appliances, the more severe the grease build-up will be. A bond cleaner has the degreasing agents and tools to clean these appliances to sparkle and will clean the range-hood filter and exhaust.
- Steam Cleaning Carpets: If the home has carpets, you must have them professionally cleaned to get out accumulated stains and dirt. And you might have to show proof of steam cleaning – a receipt from your carpet cleaner – to the real estate agent.
- Floors: Noncarpeted floors require washing and mopping to remove dirt and marks.
- Bathrooms: Scrub all parts of the bathroom to remove accumulated grime and residue, including the tiles, toilet, bath, floors, shower recess, sink, faucets, and any other reachable corners.
- Walls and Skirting Boards: Clean scuff marks, dust, prints, and other stains from the walls and skirting boards.
- Window Curtains and Blinds: If the curtains or blinds came with the apartment, a professional cleaner will wash or wipe them down as part of the bond cleaning.
- Windows and Windowsills: Clean dust, stains, and dead bugs from the windowpanes, frames, sills, and other fittings.
- Shelves and Drawers: Wipe out the entire inside and outside of all shelves and drawers.
- Exhaust Fans and Ceiling Fans: Remove grime and dust from any installed ceiling and exhaust fans.
As we said, the purpose of a bond cleaning is to leave the property in the same condition as it was when you moved in, minus fair wear and tear.
If the final inspection of your real estate agent or landlord concludes that parts of the property are not in the same condition as stated in the initial-condition report, you risk losing your bond refund.
