How to tackle the perils of the ‘end of tenancy clean’

You shudder with the same, contemplative apprehension you did last time. Will you never learn from past experience? All that was required was that you simply take a few crude, date stamped photographs upon arrival, thus securing your peace of mind, inculpability and, perhaps more importantly, your deposit.

How will you appropriately explain the cracked ceramics, the leaky taps, the loose hinges and that peculiar stain on the carpet?

This is just one of the common challenges thrust into the face of unwitting tenancy holders all over the UK. It seems that, no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot rest in peace, knowing that the security of your deposit is safe and sound. Mahatma Gandhi famously quipped “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet” and, while Gandhi’s tenacious upholding of all that was pure and righteous might not extend to the icy sentiment of your current landlord, it is, nonetheless, a quote worth pinning to the back of your mind; in the compartment marked ‘ideas I know I should try and remember but don’t’ perhaps? For Gandhi’s statement comes accompanied with a heritage of life lessons that we could all heed.

The harsh reality,when faced with an end of tenancy clean, is that one realises he has walked through his own mind with dirty feet and that, no matter how hard we scrub away at the facts, we know it is cold hard proof that counts when it comes to securing that all so precious deposit.

Fear not tenancy holders, for there is a light at the end of this squeaky plumbing system. The option to pay for a professional cleaner to attend to your flat before the landlord strikes has become vastly more popular, and effective, over the last six to seven years. A study, carried out in 2009, found that cleaners were economically worth more to society than bankers!

Don’t allow yourself to succumb to the enduring heartache and sluggish endurance of a deep, end of tenancy clean? Sit back, relax and leave it to the professionals; you will soon notice that the footsteps in your mind are all the cleaner for doing so.
