How to clean the 3 most difficult spaces at the End of tenancy

Moving out is a difficult process, made harder because of the requirements your landowners have that restrict you to cleaning, or losing your security deposit (which is a lot of money). In fact in all parts of the world, move out cleaning is assisted by professional companies that charge you to professionally clean your home (mostly affordable), such as move out cleaning London costs anywhere from 190 – 600 pounds depending on how big your house is and other factors. However if you want to save a good buck, Here are some tips to help you clean up the hardest places in your home before you move out!

Deep clean your kitchen!

Being the toughest place to wrap up, you should always start here. Begin with the simpler tasks, such as emptying all of the cabinets of anything which doesn’t belong there. Make sure to clean both in and outside of them thoroughly and to remove any marks or stains that may be present.

You can then begin removing your electrical items and cleaning behind and beneath them. Any built-in or left-behind appliances, such as a dishwasher, freezer, or oven, should be thoroughly cleaned so that any built-up gunk is removed and thus no longer noticeable. After that, clean along any worktops, countertops, or other small equipment that may require attention. Finish with a vacuuming and mopping of the floor for a nice end.

Scrub down your bathroom!

The bathroom isn’t that big of a place to clean, but it is one of the most important parts of deep cleaning your home. Sanitizing, cleaning and dis-infecting your bathroom before moving out is a crucial step.

The shower, bathtub, sinks, and, of course, the toilet are the most important parts of the bathroom to clean. If you’ve been cleaning your bathroom on a regular basis since you’ve moved in, this shouldn’t take that long. Metal appliances, such as taps and showers, are prone to mold and lime scale, so clean them thoroughly if you notice any. Finally, make sure the drains in your sink and bathtub are clean and the water can flow properly. If there are problems, you need to have your drains professionally unclogged.

Clear up the living area!

If you don’t have carpeted floors in your home, make sure to mop, vacuum and polish the hardwood. If you do have a carpet, get it professionally cleaned and thoroughly dust the wainscoting, the skirting, the doorframes and any other woodwork present in the area. Clean out the fireplace and grate properly and brush away any soot. Remove paintings and light fixtures that you own, and fill the holes in the wall. Remove any wallpaper or paint and clean the windows properly. Finally make sure any leave in furniture is properly cleaned and has no stains or spills on it, since the living room is the place where most people spend their time if they come to your house.

And that’s it! You’re done and dusted with the most difficult parts of your home, in a jiffy!
