Moving house is stressful enough without the added pressure of factoring in the dreaded bond clean. For those of you that aren’t aware, bond cleaning is in effect getting your property clean and ready for close scrutiny by your landlord before moving out. It’s your responsibility to ensure that the property is handed back in the same condition as when you took ownership, and failing to do so can result in the loss of your bond money.
Cleaning takes time and effort so it really is better to call in the professionals as they can pull this off without any hitches. If you’re juggling a job with moving plans, then it’s going to be hard for you to concentrate on the cleaning too. Rather than leaving it till the last moment, it pays to book a professional cleaner in advance to be sure of getting back the security deposit you handed over at the beginning of the lease. Here are some considerations to take into account:
Choose a specialist for your bond clean
There are plenty of cleaning companies out there offering a dazzling array of cleaning packages, some good and some not so good. Rather than get carried away by what might be false promises try to choose a company that offers a bespoke service and that has plenty of good testimonials on their website.
Do not compromise
Don’t be swayed by price alone since a poor cleaning report could result in you losing your bond money. Generally, bond money is equivalent to at least one month’s rent and that is money that is sure to come in useful in the near future. Unless you can afford to lose this money it makes sense to choose a cleaning company who will conform to the clauses of your lease, so be sure to show them what’s needed.
Don’t think that you’re a cleaner
One of the biggest mistakes tenants make is thinking that they’re cleaners. We’re not talking about a quickly weekly dust and hoover here, we’re talking about a thorough clean of every single surface, high and low, and much more besides, and this is why you’ll need professional help.
Opt for a company with modern equipment and eco-friendly products
To increase work efficiency and lower the length of time spent on the bond clean, make sure that the company you choose has modern equipment that can tackle the most challenging cleaning with efficiency. Don’t just hand over the cash and then find that they’re using dated equipment. Ask about the products they use too, to be sure that they’re safe for kids and pets.
