Moving house is stressful.
Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, have done it once or a dozen times, or are moving out with friends or your new partner, that fact doesn’t change.
You have to organise packers and movers, schedule time off work, and time everything so you’re not wasting money paying rent at your new place while you wait for your current lease to expire.
There’s a lot of planning and effort that goes into moving house.
One such effort you shouldn’t have to worry about?
End of lease cleaning.
We know there’s a preconceived assumption that landlords will pick apart even the smallest of issues, doing whatever they can to retain even a partial amount of your bond,.
And in terrible cases this may be true, but for the most part, all your landlord is looking for is for their tenant to show their property respect with reliable and thorough end of lease cleaning.
If the clean does not meet their often strict standards, they may have the right to withhold your bond. That’s why it’s so important to choose a professional who understands the strict requirements of landlords, and will maximise your chances of getting your bond back in full.
End of lease cleaning explained
In this busy world, sometimes you find no time to squeeze in your schedule the cleaning task, even if it is your genuine desire to return the house cleaned and maintained, and you want to do this before your lease expires.
Just as you hire an accountant to do your taxes properly or a locksmith to get you back into your car, you choose a cleaning company focused on delivering superior end of lease cleaning that guarantees you’ll get your bond back.
The end of lease cleaning process involves a detailed list of cleaning tasks for your property, whether you’ve been renting an apartment, a home, or an office space.
As tenants, it’s likely part of your agreement that you will thoroughly clean the property, returning it to the state in which you entered it (except for general wear and tear).
End-of-lease cleaning is more than just ordinary house cleaning, which is why specialised cleaning professionals are needed in this industry.
But before choosing an end of lease cleaner, make sure you understand exactly what’s involved in their process, and if they guarantee your bond back.
What’s included in end of lease cleaning?
In summary, end of lease cleaning covers the following broad areas:
- General cleaning
- Kitchen cleaning
- Laundry cleaning
- Bathroom cleaning
- Carpet cleaning
- Floors and skirting boards
- Window cleaning
- Rubbish removal
Ensure that your professional cleaners meet the following services or at least most of them.
This includes cleaning all surfaces including walls, floors, and windows, as well as removing dust, cobwebs, and any other built-up grime.
Vacuuming and mopping and steam cleaning carpets restores them to their former plush glory!
This includes cabinets and shelves, stovetops, and grime in sinks and drains.

What’s not included in end of lease cleaning?
As much as you want to know what’s included, we think it’s equally important is knowing what falls outside the scope of end of lease cleaning – and who else may be responsible for certain kinds of issues.
For faulty items or fixtures in the home, your landlord may be responsible for repairing, provided:
- The damage was not your fault, and
- You alert them as soon as you become aware of the issue
A good example of this is if your exhaust fan in the bathroom has stopped working.
Issues that may pose a danger to our cleaners are usually electrical related. For example, a broken outlet or sparking light switch should be looked at and repaired only by a licensed and qualified electrician.
Similarly, if your toilet is susceptible to backflow, you should call your local plumber so they can examine the issue and provide the right remedy.
Think of it this way: end of lease cleaning does not take into account repairs or general home improvements. And if you have damaged something during your time as a tenant, it’s your responsibility to ensure it gets repaired before you leave.
