If you are in the process of changing your London Flat, the end of tenancy cleaning can be a nightmare, especially if it’s too late to hire an independent cleaning service to take the task out of your hands. In those cases, a person coming to the end of the tenancy will have to do the cleaning themselves. It can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be a lonely one.
Be prepared to clean
It is logical to get as many items as possible packed and out of the way before the cleaning is about to commence. Cleaning your London flat or house is a big task, so a person will need as much space as possible. It is sensible to purchase products to clean the home. All of the parts of the house will have to be cleaned thoroughly before a person can move out. It is good to remember that if the property is not cleaned to the satisfaction of the landlord, there is a chance that the person will not receive half or all of their deposit back.
Get friends and family to help
Most people will testify that they wouldn’t have been able to do the majority of the clean alone. Where it is possible, get friends and family involved in the end of tenancy cleaning process. In most cases, they will be happy to help out.
It is a very good idea for the person to delegate tasks to friends or family.
As an example, one person could clean the living room while another person can clean the kitchen. One person can continue the packing process if it hasn’t been finished while another person cleans the living room.
Clean the bathroom
Remove all the items that are in the way out of the bathroom, before the clean has started. It is usually a good idea to put some bleach into the toilet overnight. Clean the toilet area vigorously, including the seat and the back of the toilet. Wipe down all of the tiles using a sponge. A cloth can be used as well. Use the bathroom cleaner, along with the sponge to wipe down the tiles. Soap and water can be used instead to wipe the tiles, if there is no bathroom cleaner available. Make sure that any dirt or grime in the bath tub has been removed. Clean all the taps until they are close or near to sparkling. Once the clean has been carried out in the bathroom, vacuum the bathroom floor. Try to get into any hard to reach corners and clean any dirt or cobwebs away.
Clean the kitchen
All contents from the cupboards will need to be emptied and wiped out with a sponge. The sink and the oven will need to be cleaned and disinfected. The work and counter-tops will need to be cleaned thoroughly. Where the wall area is tiled, it will need to be cleaned using a kitchen cleaner and a sponge. The fridge will need to be defrosted and all of the food contents will need to be removed before the cleaning can take place. The fridge will need to be cleaned on the inside as well as the outside. The oven will need to have an intense, deep clean. All rubbish bins inside the kitchen will need to be emptied and cleaned. Once the clean of the kitchen has been completed, vacuum the kitchen to get out any remaining dirt. In the case of a kitchen floor which is tiled, the floor can be cleaned using a mop.
