When your lease is almost over, it’s very important that you have a clean place to leave behind. Not only does this help your reputation as a renter, but it also can make sure that you get all of your bond (also known as a deposit) back. You can do numerous things yourself, but you may want to hire a professional cleaning company that specializes in End of Lease cleaning to get the job done for you. Either way, you want to make sure certain things are done when it comes to your end of lease cleaning.

For a checklist, please see https://likecleaning.com.au.

Clean Those Carpets

Whether you’re doing it yourself with a Rug Doctor machine, or hiring a professional to do the job, you want to clean your carpets. One of the most common things that are frequently replaced are carpets, but no owner wants to have to spend on it if they don’t have to. They also include somewhere in the lease in most places that your carpets need to be professionally cleaned before you leave the premises.

Pest Control May Be Necessary

Even if you haven’t had any issues with pests, you may want to look into pest control. Many agreements will state that you take care of things like fleas, or even other pests, like ants can be a problem, especially when you have pets. Therefore, you want to make sure that you hire a pest control specialist if you have a pet before you vacate the premises, or hand over those keys. Remember, if you have to have the property bombed once it’s empty, make sure you do so 24-48 hours before you give the keys to your landlord, and tell them so they don’t try to enter the property when it’s dangerous.

Don’t Shut Off the Electric Just Yet

If you’re going to hire a professional cleaning company, sure they may have many tools that don’t require power, but the best cleaning professionals always have power cleaning tools at their arsenal, so it’s important that your property has power. If the utilities were in your landlord’s name before, sometimes you can have your power switched back.

Cleaning Priority

Clean outside of your property if need be first. Then make sure that you clean the insides extremely well, vacuuming, mopping, wiping down walls and interior, etc. Make sure that the blinds are cleaned, and even the windows. And don’t forget about those appliances. Fortunately, a professional cleaning company with a good reputation will be able to do all of these things as well, but you may need to let them know of some places that your landlord may look that are also hard to reach areas. Believe it or not, some landlords will keep those spots hidden, even to you, so it’s important you know every nook and cranny of your home before you leave it so you can get it completely clean.


For the best bond-guaranteed cleaning service that you can get, you’ll want to hire a true professional cleaning company like Like Clean (no, we’re serious, that’s what it’s called). They offer a 100% bond back guarantee, office cleaning, domestic cleaning services, and more for your end of lease period.
