Furthermore, they want their landlord to be happy and to give them a positive reference when they leave. For those who may not have completed an end of lease clean before, there are a few things that need to be done out of common courtesy and also to ensure that the bond is returned. One of the first things to do is to thoroughly take care of the inside of the oven. Of course, ovens will build up with oil, grit, and left-over food scraps over time, but it is important to remove this ready for the next people to move in. A great way to achieve this is by purchasing an oven cleaner and spraying it all over the oven. This can then be left overnight. Once the product has been removed, it is best to go in with a scouring pad to get the niggly bits off. The next job to complete that many don’t think about it removing the dust from bathroom fans, bedroom fans, and light fixtures. These forgotten places are usually the ones that collect the most dust, so it is imperative to take care of these areas.
Another important task to complete it to wipe down all of the walls in the home. A great product to use to do this is sugar soap, which is specially designed for cleaning walls. There is also a product called a magic eraser which can be used on any stubborn marks and can usually be found to purchase at hardware stores. Once the walls have been taken care of, it is also important to wash down the windows on the inside and out. On the outside, this can easily be done with a garden hose. It is also vital to take care of bathrooms when completing an end of lease clean. Most commonly the floor of a shower will need to be bleached and scrubbed so that all marks and discolorations are removed. For those who feel overwhelmed by all of the tasks that need to be completed, they are able to look into hiring a professional cleaning company, many of which will offer a bond return guarantee.
