When it comes to moving house, a bond clean is not a task you should overlook. While cleaning your own home top to bottom is a good place to start, hiring professional carpet cleaners and experienced bond cleaners ensures the job will be done to the highest standard, meaning no reason for your landlord to keep your bond money. Professional cleaners have the industry knowledge surrounding the standard inclusions for a bond clean, and you can focus on the more important things – like actually moving. Hiring a cleaner is easy with HomeTask – Book now.
There are a lot of people offering this service on platforms like Gumtree that don’t require proof of experience or insurance, so you might be setting yourself up for heartbreak with missed tasks, resulting in more work and hassle than if you’d have done the cleaning yourself. So, what should you expect from an end of lease clean when you really hire a professional like us?
Walls & Windows
Washing walls and windows is a tedious task at the best of times. A professional cleaner can do this right, ensuring that any removable spots are cleaned and treating problem areas such as mould spots. A bond cleaner will also remove any dust build-up around power sockets and light switches – something most people forget and something you’d definitely like to outsource. They’ll also take care of your doors and doorframes, which are notorious for gathering fingerprints over time.
It’s no secret that sometimes we skip over our skirting boards, but surprisingly these boards gather a really large amount of dust and dirt that settles from your regular cleans. Getting into them all can take some time, especially when they turn corners or you don’t want to lift old paint. If you have any type of dust allergy, hiring a professional is definitely the way to go for this one, as skirting boards and unused rooms will no-doubt cause a flare up.
Another sneaky one we forget when doing walls and windows is the window tracks themselves, which when blocked can cause water to enter the home when it rains. Understandably, this is not on our ‘every-day’ to do list, so a professional with some elbow grease might save you some sweat.
Floors and Surfaces
A simple vacuum is unlikely to meet the standards of a bond clean, especially in the case of having lived in the house for a few years. Most leases actually require a professional carpet clean, which means steaming or polishing depending on your surfaces.
If you’ve got approval for indoor pets, you may find a fumigation clause in there too, so make sure to have a re-read of your lease before you organise your bond cleaner to come in. Sure, you can hire a steam cleaning machine at a ridiculous price, lug it home and rush to get it back within the timeframe, while still worrying about getting your house packed up and clean in time. Best to go with the pro for this one, as they also have knowledge on the right types of shampoos and water temperature for particular fabric types (you do not want to be paying for accidentally bleaching or shrinking the carpet).
Even floorboards can collect dust and dirt in the grain and gaps and some materials require special treatment, so it’s best to get in a professional to avoid any damage and make sure it’s all up to scratch (with no scratches).
Now this is a task even the most motivated of us like to pass on. With many often forgotten areas in the bathroom such as corners behind cupboards, exhaust vents and gaps in tiles, hiring a professional cleaner for your end of lease clean is the most efficient way to ensure nothing is missed and you receive your full bond return.
A professional bond cleaner will have all the right tools for soap scum, lime build up and rusty ring water removal. This way you don’t have to go out and buy a million products that just have to be packed up again anyway. Bond cleaners will also know the right way to get the build-up out of your exhaust fan, which is a tricky task on your own.
Your bond conditions might include things that have never even crossed your mind – like full cleans of range hoods and tracks on window seals. An experienced, quality bond cleaner will never miss any of these details that might slip your memory in the midst of a move. Save time and energy, and don’t take a risk with your hard-earned money.
