Planning to move your house in the coming months? We hope that you remember the hefty end of lease cleaning amount you deposited to your landlord when you first moved in! Well, now is the time to start thinking about making sure that you get that amount back in full. By adopting some forward thinking strategies, you can ensure that you get that end of lease cleaning security back in full.
The first thing you ought to do is find the checklist you received when you moved in. This checklist particularly lists the state of all the windows, wall, carpets and appliances in the premises when you moved in. This will give you a good idea of what the state the house was in when you moved in. And this is exactly what you should be aiming for at the end of lease cleaning. If there was a stain on the carpet or the wall and was duly noted on the sheet, then there is no need to worry about it, just focus on the incongruities between what is on the sheet and what is in the home.
Damaged objects often prove to be a source of major with-holdings by landlords. So it is best to replace them before your landlord comes for the final walk-through, or else he would charge you with magnified prices for replacement of basic things like ice cube trays, light fittings and damaged doorknobs. Don’t let these small things distress your end of lease cleaning deposit, as these can easily be taken care of with a meek trip to your next-door DIY store.
Something worth your consideration is the cleaning of the carpet and the window. Depending on the state of these two on your arrival and departure, consider paying an expert cleaning service to come and clean them for you. Though this is not a big requirement, but it is best to have them if it can cost you a serious chunk of your original end of lease contract.
