This week we were called to a two bedroom flat in the Cramlington area of Northumberland. Our customer told us that she had been living in the rented flat with her partner for the past ten years, but as they were now in the position to buy their own house, they were moving out. In order to get the substantial deposit back from their landlord, they asked us to give the flat a thorough clean.
They told us that although it wasn’t in an awful condition neither of them were particularly clean people and they had only cleaned the oven once in the ten years that they had been there! They had also never cleaned the windows on the inside, so they told us that these were in quite a state as well. We told them not worry and that we would clean everything to a very high standard, which they were very reassured by.
Our clients were at the property to meet us, so after unpacking all of our cleaning products, we set to work. We decided to begin by cleaning all of the windows inside the flat first, because as they had described, they were very dirty, with fingerprints, dirty marks, cobwebs and a lot of dead insects on the windowsills. Next we got started on the second hardest job in the flat, which was the oven. The rest of the kitchen wasn’t in the best state either, but the oven was incredibly dirty and was caked in many ancient layers of grease and lots of charcoaled food.
We are highly experienced at cleaning up the most stubborn kinds of grease though, so we set to work with our industrial cleaning products. While these were doing their work, we also cleaned the rest of the kitchen, which clearly hadn’t been cleaned very often during the past ten years either. There were more dead insects, the fridge stank and there were several items of food frozen to the back of it. This was by far the worst room in the flat though, as the two bedrooms and the living room, despite being very dusty, were not that dirty. The bathroom was in a reasonable condition too, though there was a lot of limescale around the bath plug that needed to be removed, as well as some stubborn stains of the pine flooring.
After we had cleaned all of the rooms from top to bottom, we hoovered each room and mopped all of the floors, which were pine throughout. The oven had taken us three hours to clean in total, but by the time we were finished it was gleaming and almost looked brand new which amazed our customers. With our work done, we left them feeling very confident that they would now get their full deposit back.
