End of tenancy cleaning

How to prepare for an end of tenancy cleaning

Your end of tenancy cleaning made easy

A move announces a new life full of happiness... And filled with boxes! While you have just spent one or two whole days devoted to your move, you have only one wish: to settle down. Placing the furniture, emptying the boxes, tweaking your decoration and spending all your evenings pinning magnificent photos on Pinterest are your only desires. Except that you have to delay these projects to thoroughly clean your old place. Before returning the keys, you must do the cleaning from top to bottom in hopes of getting back your deposit.

Fatigue, total lack of interest in this old apartment, the desire to move on are all reasons to feel demotivated.

What if we told you that we had the ideal solution at Wecasa?

The importance of end of tenancy cleaning

Who has never stressed before proceeding to his exit inventory? Returning a rental is not easy. Regardless of the number of years spent in housing, it is essential to make it nickel. This mission is not necessarily obvious, especially if you have made yourself "at home". It is not uncommon to have to do small DIY jobs. To feel good, the tenants do not hesitate to make holes in the wall to hang frames, paintings and other mirrors. And hop, other little holes to hang cannon shelves in the living room! Result: your interior looks more like a Swiss cheese than a real apartment.

Repairing everything usually takes time. Many people prefer to just put a little coat of paint to restore whiteness and shine to the walls. Generally, tenants devote several days to repairing the dwelling.

Then comes the essential cleaning step. Unless you are a big slob (or a fool), no one wants to make an apartment dirty! Once the furniture, decorations and trinkets are removed, cleaning is not an easy task.

Never forget that the first impression is the most important. Think of your landlord (or the agency) who will arrive in a clean, clean apartment that smells fresh! How could he get you in trouble for bail? Normal wear is taken into account but not dirt. From a legal point of view, the lease contract stipulates that the accommodation must be returned to the lessor in the same state of cleanliness as when he arrived. If the cleaning is not done, the owner is in his right to keep part of the deposit to cover the cleaning costs.

The ideal checklist before an end of tenancy clean

Between moving in and moving out, your mind is abused with a lot of information of all kinds. There are so many things to do that it is exhausting.

Here is the list of points to check before the fateful meeting! We can divide them into two categories: tasks that require real refurbishment by you, and tasks that require a “big clean up” cleaning before returning your accommodation.

1. Rehabilitation

Clean the ventilation grilles

If the fridge belongs to your landlord, consider unplugging it and defrosting it

Descale taps (tap, shower, sink, etc.)

Do not hesitate to wash the walls (if possible)

Wash windows (and sills)

Plug the holes

2. “Big clean up” cleaning

Clean the electric plates, the oven and the hood if it is an equipped kitchen

Soap the inside of drawers and cupboards

Scrub the entire bathroom and toilet

Do not forget the tile joints (if they are deeply blackened, unfortunately you will not be able to restore them to their original appearance. Hence the importance of maintaining them regularly)

Clean all floors, vacuum everywhere

The unbeatable weapon is white vinegar. It is the magic solution to make an economical and ecological household. For example, it gives a boost to the faucets and the shower cubicle. It is able to dissolve limescale in the toilet. Forget the 12,000 detergent products that are difficult to overcome. It is ideal for cleaning the fridge, windows but also for removing bad smells. Want to give a little facelift to more very white white walls? Clean them gently with a small new sponge soaked in white vinegar!

Good reasons to hire a cleaning professional

As for the refurbishment of your apartment (such as filling in the holes or descaling the taps), you will have to take care of it yourself - housekeepers can clean your apartment, but not refurbish it 🙂 On the other hand, As far as cleaning is concerned before the keys are handed over, you only have advantages in calling on a housekeeper! For starters, you will save valuable time. A move requires so much work that you should not hesitate to ask a domestic cleaner for help. Just as many people entrust their move to competent people, asking for a helping hand with the household should become the same reflex. Instead of spending hours scrubbing your old apartment, you will be able to devote your time and energy to your new home. Tell yourself that you have your work cut out for you! The next few weeks are likely to be difficult in terms of pace.

Wecasa offers you professional, reliable people with validated skills. You treat yourself to the services of a housekeeper who will know exactly how to clean everything to make your accommodation spotless. She knows perfectly all the tips and tricks for scouring and cleaning. It is also possible to take an option relating to cleaning products: no need to worry about the products and materials that you must keep in the old home. Wecasa can provide you with the essentials and take a big headache off your shoulders. You might as well put the odds on your side when such sums are at stake (they generally correspond to one month's rent).

The last good reason is to get rid of stress and spare your couple if you are not single. Many surveys have shown that moving is one of the major stressful and contentious steps in a couple's life. If we can avoid them, why refuse?

And after, what about cleaning in your new home?

The famous appointment of the exit cleaning has taken place... Happy to have recovered your deposit, you are now well settled in your new accommodation! Calling on a domestic cleaner sounded like a small revolution. While you thought you would never dare to contact a cleaning man or woman, it is clear that the concept has seriously seduced you. You have understood that there is no harm in asking a housekeeper for a helping hand... Quite the contrary! In addition to providing work for a motivated person, you make your daily life more pleasant by removing a huge amount of time spent on household chores.

You already have enough to do running around between your work, your children, your lover, your friends, your hobbies, etc. The advantage with Wecasa is that you choose the formula that best suits your needs. For example, you can choose a person who will come for two hours every week to do the household chores... Or someone who will intervene occasionally to give you a real helping hand. Who has never let themselves be completely overwhelmed by household chores to the point of spending whole Sundays there? What if you take the opportunity instead to create beautiful memories surrounded by your family and friends?
