Here is out advise on the main areas that you need to pay special attention to. And most importantly, where your landlord or agency will be checking particularly.

  • Bathroom and Toilet – No experiments here. All surfaces must de-limed and de-scaled. Everything must be sparkling clean. Make sure that even area behind the toilet ball is scrubbed.
  • Kitchen and Living room – The cupboards must be cleaned from the inside out. Again all surfaces and windows must be clean and shiny.
  • Bedroom – Make sure that other than the general cleaning, your landlord would expect the the area under the bed is clean too.
  • Carpets –  Do I have to wash the carpets when move out? Here is the tricky part. Some of the rental agencies do request carpet steam cleaning.  We do not recommend on taking on the steam cleaning yourself. Too many things can go wrong. Its best to do very good deep hoover clean and see if the landlord would accept that.
