What does an end of tenancy clean include?
End of tenancy/EOT clean is a specialist cleaning service that’s designed to completely clean your rental property before you officially move/check out of a property. The means the property is spick & span for the new tenant’s arrival and ensures your security deposit won’t be deducted for the letting agent sending in cleaners with an additional hidden 20% fee for the privilege.
As it’s a specialist, deep cleaning service, end of tenancy cleaning is slightly different to regular cleaning.
Cleaning companies usually use a checklist when completing an end of tenancy clean, to ensure that all areas are covered, and your deposit is returned in full.
