Sophie’s Cleaning Tips
End of tenancy clean
Moving house brings with it many stresses. Packing boxes, finding a good delivery company and leaving the property in the condition it was in when you moved in. Yes, for many of us the end of tenancy clean can take up a lot of time and energy as we try to get the full tenancy deposit back.
So what should be on the end of tenancy clean check list?
When vacating a property, you want to avoid the landlord having to bring in a professional cleaning company after you leave. This will mean money out of your deposit and this is something all of us want to avoid.
Make sure you scrub that oven like there is no tomorrow! Get rid of all the grease by using a good oven cleaner, leaving it to soak in for a while and then using a good metal scrubber to shift the grease. Note: Do this job first as it is usually the most difficult (from my experience anyway)!
Remove all the fridge compartments and give them a good scrub with a damp cloth soaked in warm soapy water. Try not to use any harsh detergents in the fridge as this can shorten the lifespan of the fridge.
Let’s face it, this is not the most pleasant of tasks but it needs to be done. If you have a lot of limescale build-up use a bleach based toilet cleaner such as Harpic which can be left in the toilet overnight. Next morning, using a toilet brush scrub the bottom of the toilet bowl as hard as you can. Other tips include using cola and leaving it for a few hours before scrubbing.
Floors, carpets and window cleaning
Bicarbonate of soda left on carpets for about 30 minutes before using the vacumn ensures you have a fresh, pleasant smell. Also, you could use warm water with vinegar and some lemon juice to leave the windows sparkling. Use old newspapers to rub the windows or any glass to get it extra clean.
