What’s Included In A Bond Clean Checklist?

Not every tenancy agreement requires paying a bond. But if you did pay a bond and you want to get it back, you must perform a bond clean – or face forfeiting the bond amount. If you happen to be moving homes within Perth, contact the us as we are the go to solution for end of lease cleaning Perth.

What’s A Bond Clean?

A bond clean is quite different from everyday house cleaning. It’s far more thorough and goes far deeper, cleaning places you never thought of cleaning, including extractor fans, light fittings, window tracks, cupboards, and other corners of every home.

Since there are so many things involved in a bond clean, we’ve compiled a checklist to guide you through the bond cleaning process.

Your Bond Clean Checklist

With a bond clean checklist, you absolutely can’t overlook anything if you want to minimise the risk of losing all your bond money. Here’s a list of everything to include on your bond clean checklist:

Kitchen Cleaning

  • Clean the inside and outside of all kitchen cabinets
  • Remove and replace torn or peeling liners
  • If there’s an oven or grill, clean all its components, inside and out
  • Clean behind, inside, and outside of the fridge, microwave, and other appliances
  • Clean the windowpanes, sills, tracks and screens
  • Clean all kitchen countertops, sinks, taps, and floors
  • Clear food residue from the drains

Living Room And Bedroom Cleaning

  • Empty and clean the light fittings
  • Clean dust from ceiling fan blades
  • Remove stains from walls
  • Clean the windowpanes, sills, tracks, curtains, and screens
  • Clean skirting boards and light switches
  • Clean the inside and outside of vents
  • Professionally clean the carpets and mop the hardwood flooring

Bathrooms Cleaning

  • Clean the inside and outside of bathroom cupboards, drawers, and shelves
  • Clean mirrors, walls, windows, and window tracks
  • Scrub the shower, tiles, doors, screens, and curtains clean
  • Clean and disinfect the toilet and sink bowl and pipes
  • Clear the drains and walls of hair and soap scum
  • Scrub and disinfect the entire bathroom floor

Laundry Room Cleaning

  • Clean the inside and outside of washer and dryer machines, as well as their filters
  • Clean behind and around washer and dryer
  • Clean the inside and outside of cupboards and other storage compartments
  • Sweep, scrub, and mop all floors

Garage, Carport And Driveway Cleaning

If the home has an attached garage, include the following as part of the bond clean:

  • Get rid of all junk and leave behind only the supplies that were in the garage when you arrived
  • Wash the inside and outside of the windows
  • Clear out dust and cobwebs
  • Pressure-wash the ground
  • Empty the rubbish

Patios, Yards And Garden Cleaning

If the home has a patio or yard, cleaning it must be part of your bond-clean checklist:

  • Remove dead and rotting flora from the garden or yard
  • Mow and rake the lawn, trim hedges, and remove weeds
  • Clean the outsides of plant pots and planters
  • Sweep and hose the patio and walkways

Conclusion

A bond on your rental property is typically about the same as a month’s rent. That’s a lot of money to throw away for merely failing to clean a house properly before packing out.

Clearly, however, completing a bond cleaning is no easy task. To make things easier, contact us for professional cleaners with the expertise and equipment to get the job done to your satisfaction and ensure you get your entire bond back!
