Do the end of tenancy cleaning yourself
It is always best to do your end of tenancy cleaning early, making sure you are able to pack into a new house with no residual harmful germs and dirt. Some prefer to hire professionals, and talking about professionals, we are the best you can offer. Some others prefer to do it themselves because of the cost-effectiveness and the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that you cleaned your new home by yourself. So, where are those places one should clean?
The living room:
This is the first place every visitor goes to when they visit any home. So, a dirty living room certainly creates a wrong first impression. The main things to tackle in a living room are the carpets and the furniture. Use a vacuum cleaner for the carpets and for the tougher stains, and you can always use the services of a professional. The shelves, tables, upholstery, cupboards, TV stands, and cabinets should be cleaned and polished thoroughly.
The windows and walls:
Inspect the walls for scuff marks and try to wash them off. If the stains prove too stubborn, it is always better to repaint them with the same color or any other design of your choice. The windows should be cleaned effectively with powerful cleaning solutions or with the help of professionals.
There are always stains in the bathroom, as long as it is frequently being used. So, take some extra time to wipe off all the stains that may be in the sinks, toilet, bath, tiles, and even on the mirrors. Make sure the drains in the sinks are working perfectly to prevent blockages. All metallic surfaces in the bathroom like the shower heads and taps should also be cleaned. The most effective solutions to use in this type of cleaning should be organic ones.
This is most likely the one place you need to pay the closest attention to because it is where your food is being prepared. It definitely has to be free of dirt and germs. Empty the shelves and cupboards, and wipe thoroughly with the eco-friendly and reusable bamboo cleaning cloth. Also, clean the appliances and behind them. There is sure to be built-up grime in the dishwashers, ovens, and washing machines, so they need to be cleaned thoroughly.
The refrigerator may be your next stop. It should be clean inside and out. Remove all the racks, fridge trays, and cabinet shelves and immerse these items in soapy water. After washing them, rinse with clean water and sun-dry them.
The hallways and staircases:
These are the most frequently used areas of the house, so they are liable to attract more germs. This means that they also need extra care and attention. Also, the gardens should be swept, and the plants there should be tended properly to avoid the breeding of dangerous insects and animals there.
Depending on how big your new home is, there may be some other places in the house that need to be clean. In this blog, we touched all the basic areas. In this time of the coronavirus pandemic, your health and safety are paramount so you should endeavor to take the end of tenancy cleaning seriously. In the event that professional help is needed, we at Fastklean are a call away. If this blog answered some of your questions, please like and share it.
