If your tenancy is coming to an end, it’s essential to make sure the property is spotlessly clean to get your full deposit back. We’ve put together a guide of key areas to clean before you move out.
Clean the kitchen and appliances
The kitchen is likely to take the longest to clean, so ensure you’ve left plenty of time to do it thoroughly. In addition to the cupboards and worktops, all appliances will need to be cleaned. This includes:
- Oven and extractor fan
- Fridge and freezer
- Washing machine
- Tumble dryer
To get the best results, use high-quality products that have been tried, tested and proven to work. This is particularly important for tricky to clean appliances like the oven: only high-strength oven cleaning products (and a touch of elbow grease) will remove all dirt and grime.
Clean the bathroom
Bathrooms are also key rooms in your house to have spotless if you want to receive your full deposit back. Clean all mildew and mould from grouting, limescale from taps and scrub tiles until they shine. Make sure you clean in and around the toilet, the shower head and fittings plus other areas that are often ignored.
Key bathroom components to deep clean include:
Clean the floor and carpets
Don’t neglect the floor during your deep clean. Hoover the floor in every room of the house, not forgetting hallways, stairs and skirting boards. You can then mop all hard floor surfaces using a quality floor cleaner and deep clean your carpets to remove all trapped dirt, leaving fibres fluffed and looking as good as new.
Deep clean every room
Make sure you deep clean every room, including fabric surfaces like sofas and curtains if your property is furnished. Dust and disinfect all surfaces – including windows – and make sure to scrub any marks off the wall.
