Moving out of a rented property means one thing… you’ll need to do a deep clean of the premises if you want to get your deposit back. Of course, it can be quite tricky to really get into the nooks and crannies, particularly if you’ve lived somewhere for years and the dirt has built up, which is where getting professional move out cleaning help can really come into its own. However, if you’re determined to go it alone for the time being, here are a few top tips from the team here at AEG Cleaning to help you bring the shine and sparkle back to your home once more by end of tenancy cleaning.
Move out first
You might be tempted to clean as you go, but you’ll find it a lot easier to get the cleaning done properly if you’ve moved all your belongings out first. This will clear the space and show you exactly where you need to direct your attention the most.
Wear socks while mopping
There’s nothing worse than mopping all the floors and then looking down to see you’ve tracked grubby footprints through the house and across all your hard work. You can get around this particular problem by wearing clean socks or slippers, instead of shoes that have been outside.
Work from the top down
Think hierarchically when you’re doing the cleaning and you’ll make it all a lot easier for yourself. Start by dusting any cobwebs from the ceiling and upper corners of all the rooms, then give the curtains, drapes or blinds a good clean before tackling the windows themselves. Working in this way means that you’ll only have to clean the floors once!
Put some music on
Just because you’re cleaning doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! Put together a cleaning playlist that helps keep you feeling energised and you’ll find the jobs simply whizz by. You’ll be done before you know it.
Make a checklist
It can be overwhelming to think of all the jobs you need to get done before you can consider yourself fully moved out, but making a list can really help you keep on track… and it’s very satisfying to cross tasks off the list as you go.
Tackle the harder jobs first
Places like the kitchen and bathroom accumulate lots of dirt and grime very easily and they can be harder work to clean, so getting them done first can be useful. This means you’ll have more energy to get them done well, rather than leaving them until the end of the day when you’re tired and all cleaned out.
