Cleaning your apartment at the end of a tenancy is key to making sure that you get your safety deposit back and that your relationship with your landlord continues to remain harmonious up until the very end. However, as is the case with anything, there’s a whole bunch of dos and don’ts that you’ll need to follow if you stand any chance of making sure your cleaning is successful. Let’s take a quick peek at what you need to know.

  1. Do Take Your Time With It

The best thing you can do with any type of cleaning for your space is to make sure that you are taking your time to clean everything properly and ensure that you’re being sensible with how you can clean.

It’s not worth rushing around to get it all done in an hour because all that’ll happen is you’ll wind up missing things and doing half a job. This won’t help your relationship with the landlord or ensure you get a full deposit back.

  1. Don’t use harsh cleaning chemicals

The tough, heavy duty cleaning chemicals are there for the purpose of getting rid of the toughest stains and the hardest problems, however, with that being said, it’s also the case that they can be the most destructive for your space and leave permanent stains and damage.

What you’ll want to do is look for eco-friendly tools and cleaning products which won’t ruin the space completely and ensure that you have a nice and clean apartment at the end of the tenancy – and not one with bleach stains.

  1. Don’t Try and Get Out of It

You wouldn’t be the first tenant to try and avoid having to pay a large amount of money or spending a lot of time to get your property cleaned. You don’t want to fix it all up and we don’t blame you for that.

However, if you try to avoid your responsibilities and not clean at all, you’ll just find yourself in conflict with the landlord about it and you won’t get a penny of your despotic back. It might seem like a worthy gamble, but it just isn’t worth the hassle.

  1. Do hire professionals

If you want to get your property tidied up and looking good for the future, then the best thing you can do is hire professionals who will clean for you. It makes your life a lot easier and it means that you don’t have to worry about doing any of it for yourself.
