End of Tenancy Cleaning

End of Tenancy Cleaning

Special care is given to the kitchen during the end of tenancy cleaning since it is a sensitive area that is usually in use every day. It is also likely to be stained due to fat used to cook and the interaction with perishable foods. Bacteria that may be harmful also need to be destroyed to ensure hygiene is at its best. With this in mind, professional cleaning ensures that all areas are cleaned inside out, from the electrical appliances to the fixtures like cupboards and skirting boards. The floor tiles are properly scrubbed, counter surfaces cleaned and lighting fittings dusted properly. Drawers also need to be cleaned including doors and windows from both the inside and the outside. Our professionals take a lot of care in cleaning the electrical appliances to ensure they are still in perfect condition after the cleaning. Check our checklist for details on how to make sure everything is cleaned.
