End of tenancy cleaning – you get what you pay for!
Moving house is stressful. Not only do you have to pack all of your belongings, keep your kids and pets occupied and sort through all of the material goods that you have in your life, you also need to ensure that your home is left as clean as a whistle. Landlords are often looking for even the tiniest flaw in your cleaning job, eager to use this as an excuse to make as many deductions from your deposit as is possible.
In order to avoid the last minute stress and anxiety (not to mention the huge time investment and effort needed) of a deep clean, many people choose to hire a cleaner to do their end of tenancy cleaning. But what happens when your cleaner does a mediocre – or worse – job? You end up with your sleeves rolled up, frantically trying to scrub every nook and cranny in order to get the place in good shape before your inspection, undoubtedly irritated, stressed and out the money that you spent on a so-called “professional.”
The old adage “you get what you pay for” is never more obvious than when it comes to house cleaning – a price that is too good to be true is usually just that! As you are preparing to move house, the last thing that you need to worry about is a shoddy cleaner who does the bare minimum in order to get paid.
Don’t fall for cheap tricks and rock bottom rates on a cleaner – you will usually end up spending more time and money in order to rectify the mess that they make. Always do your homework and hire a professional with reasonable rates and reliable reviews – you won’t be sorry.
