Should You Hire An End Of Tenancy Cleaner?
The question is a hard one, and one that many will ask themselves when they are about to move house. Here, you have seen an easy to digest look at the yes and no camps, in order to make a decision based upon your own contexts! Everyone is different, so don’t expect the answer to be given to you, you are going to have to work it out based on the following factors! YES.If you are up against the clock with your removal, then hiring an end of tenancy cleaner simply gives you one less things to worry about doing yourself. You will simply need to leave them a couple of hours in which to get the cleaning done, once you have removed all of the furniture form the place. You will find that a professional cleaner who is used to such jobs will get the job done a lot faster than you, and this means that the price won’t be too bad if you are paying them by the hour. There are measures that you can go to, to ensure that you are not at risk of the cleaning job taking too long and costing too much. These measures are like removing all of the clutter, so that the cleaning can be done straight away, as well as getting the DIY done in advance, laying dust sheets to reduce the DIY and removal mess, and generally having the place ready to go by the time the cleaners arrive. If this is all in place, then there is no reason why it should take more than a few hours to get the whole place looking great. Make sure that the cleaners are aware of spots like the oven and cupboards that they might have missed, and you should be good to go! Having a receipt form the cleaners for a full house clean will also mean that you can supply your land lord with the proof that you had it done, and they will then be less likely to try and catch you out on dirt, and take extra cash from your deposit. If you want to just sit back and relax after the stress of getting things moved from the house, then cleaning is not going to be what you want to be worrying yourself with!NO.If you hire a cleaner, then you are paying for a job that you can do yourself. If you can leave yourself the time to do it yourself, then you will find that it is actually not too hard to get it all done fairly easily, and you will save yourself a bunch of money. If your removal has been relaxed, and you have gotten all of the repairs and painting done for the place to look how it needs to, then simply cleaning up after yourself and tackling the dirt with a bit of elbow grease will not be too much of an issue. You will need to ensure that the money that you spend on the cleaning products that you need to get is not more than you would have spent on an end of tenancy cleaning company. However, some cleaning companies will have expected you to supply the materials that they use, so be aware of this as well. You should find that the job is done in a few hours, and that if you are dedicated fully to it, there will be no issues with it all going forward.
