Can you do the End of Tenancy Cleaning Service yourself?
If you haven’t cleaned your property for an End of Tenancy Cleaning, we would advise you to seek professional cleaning company to perform this service as you need to have an experience of cleaning various surfaces, appliances etc. Further, you may have to spend significant amount of money to acquire cleaning products and equipment. Not only that you will have to clean the whole property, but you need to be familiar with how to clean the oven, remove the limescale from shower screen, taps and sink, and generally leaving the place spotless. This will ensure that your property will be ready for an inspection and no deductions will be made if all is up to standard.
Did you know that carpet steam cleaning is a general requirement for an end of tenancy cleaning? Thus, if you have carpeted areas in the property you may have to clean them professionally using hot water extraction machine. The same applies for upholstery such as sofas, armchairs, tables chairs and curtains. You won’t be able to perform professional steam cleaning of carpets and furniture by yourself as this requires professional equipment.
You can rent a Rug Doctor but your estate agent or landlord would not approve this equipment for cleaning the carpets and upholstery, and you may end up paying additional fees for a professional steam cleaning.
