An end of lease clean, also known as a bond clean, is expected at the end of your tenancy. The goal is to restore the rental property to the condition it was when you moved into it. More importantly to you, professional services for end of lease cleaning Canberra help you get your full bond deposit back.
To verify that you have restored the property to this state, the property manager or real estate agent will conduct an assessment with the help of an initial condition report. For every part of the property that doesn’t tally with the initial condition report, you lose a part of your bond deposit.
Many tenants end up losing their entire bond refund because they were unable to clean and restore the rental property to the satisfaction of the property manager. To avoid falling into this trap, we recommend hiring end of lease cleaning services.
To get your entire bond deposit back, the property manager must agree that the rental property is in the same condition when you move out as it was when you moved in.
Even if you spent your entire time in the rental property coated in bubble wrap, it’s impossible to keep the property in perfect condition. The only thing to do is to perform an end of lease cleaning at the end of your tenancy to restore the property.
An end of the lease clean is far more thorough than a regular house cleaning. While some renters do their own end of lease cleaning, a professional end of lease cleaner knows all the tricks of the trade and what needs to be done to get you a full bond refund. If you’re worried about the cost of hiring a professional, just remember that the cost of hiring a cleaner is far cheaper than losing your bond deposit.
For the best results, an expert end of lease cleaner will restore a rental property by following these steps:
- Referring to the initial condition report
The initial condition report is a document that you sign stating the condition the rental property should be in when you move out. An end of lease cleaner will refer to this report before cleaning to identify the key areas to focus on.
- Going beyond the surface
Unlike regular cleaning that cleans only what’s obvious, a professional bond cleaner will clean all surfaces, appliances, fixtures, and recesses within the home.
- Carpet steaming
Professionals have the necessary equipment to steam clean a carpet and restore it. They may also provide you with a carpet cleaning receipt that you can show the property manager as proof.
- Ceiling, windows, and light fittings
By cleaning light fittings, window sills, and the ceiling, bond cleaners ensure that there are no cobwebs, debris, or dead insects hiding in any corners.
- Oven and range hood
The cleaner will degrease and clean all areas in your kitchen that have grime and stains from cooking.
