    The Benefit of a Fixed Price for a Lease Cleaning Service

    Unlike many other cleaning agencies on the market, we offer fixed end of tenancy cleaning prices rather than hourly rates. This means you know how much you are going to pay in advance and there will be no surprises.

    The other thing to remember is that the accuracy of the online quote you receive is largely dependent on the information you input in the booking form. The more details you provide about the number of rooms and any specific requests you have, the more precise the estimate can be.

    It should be mentioned that if the property has suffered extreme disrepair or uncleanliness, it is in our rights to change the initial post-tenancy cleaning quote given online. We will vocalise everything beforehand so that you are prepared for it. After we visually inspect your rental unit, we can confirm the final cost. There are no hidden fees.

    Our End of Tenancy Cleaning Service is Fully Guaranteed

    Skycleaners, offering expert cleaning services since 2010, has been proudly delivering top-notch and fully guaranteed end of tenancy cleaning services with a touch of excellence in London. Rest assured, our cleaning services are thoroughly reliable.

    However, in the rare chance your landlord identifies any cleanliness concerns within 120 hours post-cleaning in the checkout report, we're at your service to re-clean the specified areas promptly and free of charge! We're committed to ensuring your total peace of mind and full satisfaction.

    Do note, however, that if a new tenant moves into the house within this 5-day window, i.e. before the inspection of the estate agent or landlord, this renders the guarantee null. The same rule applies if the previous tenant remains on the premises after the cleaning has been carried out.

    If you are not completely satisfied with the cleaning we did, It’s important to point out that we do not offer refunds. Our guarantee is valid for 5 days, or 120 hours following the service completion.

    The purpose of this guarantee is to provide 100% satisfaction at the time of cleaning. But if the original conditions change, then the guarantee can no longer apply. Thank you for understanding.

    Benefits of Hiring Our Professional End of Tenancy Cleaners

    • Thorough cleaning. End of lease cleaning is a service that is designed to cover every inch of the rented property. All surfaces should be wiped down, cleaned, disinfected, de-limed and de-scaled, you name it. From the walls to the space under the bed, the house is cleaned from top to bottom. The service doesn’t have a specific time frame, which means the professional cleaners will stay until they cross off every task from the end of tenancy cleaning checklist.
    • Eco-friendly move out cleaning products and machines. Our end of tenancy cleaning company is armed with high-grade professional equipment that is targeted at different cleaning issues. With the help of various techniques, we can remove stains, deeply ingrained dirt, dust, grime, and limescale.
    • You can barely yield the same results using store-bought products. Plus, our move out cleaning supplies do not contain harsh chemicals, meaning they are safe for you and the environment.
    • A stress-free moving process. When you leave the messy work to us, you can sit down and relax. It gives you enough time to pack and plan your house move. No hassle or headaches.
    • By contrast, cleaning the house yourself requires continuous wiping, scrubbing, vacuuming, and stain removal. You may not even have the proper products and machines to get started.
    • Quick turnaround of the property. When the rental property is in pristine condition, you can rent it out pretty quickly. The chances of attracting new occupants within the first month go up.
    • Same-day service. Skycleaners is aware that many tenants need a speedy service, which is why we can come on short notice.
    • Extensive training. Our cleaners undergo rigorous training, which is how we ensure they can do a fantastic job every time. They will bring your property to its original condition so that new tenants can move in right away.

    Additional Cleaning Services We Provide

    As you get in touch with our customer support, don’t forget to ask about our list of combined services that can make your move out cleaning better. When you bundle up multiple services, you can get a discount. This way you will end up paying less.

    External window cleaning

    There is a separate reliable service for external window cleaning that you can incorporate into your professional end of tenancy cleaning package. Needless to say, it comes at an extra cost. Because of this, you have to let us know ahead of time that you would like to have your windows cleaned as part of the tenancy service.

    Upholstery cleaning service

    If you are looking for more than just hoovering, furniture-wise, you should order upholstery cleaning. We will bring our steam cleaning equipment to give your items a deep clean.

    Deep carpet cleaning service

    Vacuuming carpets doesn’t remove mud, grime, and stains. Carpets receive lots of traffic on the daily and collect all sorts of dirt that settles into the fibres. The longer it sits there, the more difficult it is to get rid of it. If you want to give a breath of fresh life to your carpets at the end of your tenancy, add this service to your cleaning package.

    Wall spot cleaning

    At Skycleaners, we also offer wall spot cleaning. This is a service that targets certain areas of the wall that could use some sprucing up. Our cleaning supplies are suitable for walls and they won’t cause any damage to the surface.

    Mattress Cleaning

    Mattresses are dirt collectors too. If you could see the amount of dead skin cells, dust, and sweat they accumulate, you would want to clean them more frequently. It is a wise idea to include mattress cleaning in your end of tenancy cleaning package. We use a powerful cleaning system that can eliminate dust mites as well.

    Duration of the End of Tenancy Cleaning Services

    It is hard to tell how much time our move out cleaners will spend on the premises. Different factors as involved that determine the duration of the service. For one, the size of the property plays a major role. For another, it’s important to recognise that the more cleaning services are added, the longer it will take to complete the task.

    We like to take our time so that we can do a thorough job. If the property has suffered lots of wear and tear, we may not be able to produce satisfactory results. An estimation will be made to ensure we can perform our duties to a reasonable standard.

    Are You Anxious About Getting Your Deposit Back?

    When you rent a flat or house, you usually are required to provide a security deposit which is equal to one month’s rent or higher. The money serves as a means to replace or fix something in the property that was stolen, lost, or damaged.

    At the end of the tenancy, you should be able to receive your rental deposit as long as there is no need to pay for any damaged items.

    If you are anxious about your deposit, there are a few things you can do. First of all, you should go over the lease agreement once again to find out what conditions apply to the deposit return. This will help you understand what to expect.

    The second step is to take photos of the rental property. Ideally, pictures will be taken both as you move in and out. They will serve as evidence of the condition of the unit. If you no damage is caused, the photos will show.

    Now, if you made any improvements to the premises during your tenancy, you should provide all the receipts to the landlord. Then, you are recommended to give the owners a written notice that you are moving house. It is best to maintain that communication in writing so there is proof for everything that was said.

    The last step is to clean the entire property thoroughly. If you don’t think you can achieve a high level of cleanliness, you can always leave the job to our cleaning experts. This will take some pressure off your shoulders.

    Landlord Charging for Post-Tenancy Cleaning

    Even though landlords and estate agents aren’t allowed to request professional end of tenancy cleaning as of 2019, they may still charge tenants for poor hygiene. The key thing to remember is that while they can’t force you to hire professional cleaners, they may still withhold a part of your initial deposit if you don’t clean the house.

    The best way to avoid disputes with your landlord is to make sure you know what level of cleanliness is expected from you on the day you hand over the keys. In general, the property should be returned in the same state it was at check-in.

    If you are unsure, you can refer to the inventory list attached to the tenancy agreement for more information. Ideally, you have already discussed all aspects of the issue with your landlord before.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the homeowners cannot charge you for fair wear and tear, i.e. normal use of the rental unit. If you caused heavy damage on the premises, this is another story.

    Landlord Limits

    If the property was rented on an assured shorthold tenancy, it is the landlord’s obligation to protect the deposit by putting it in a government-approved tenancy deposit plan (TDP). This way, they can always repay the deposit at the end of the tenancy. The rule applies since April 6, 2007.

    If there is a disagreement between the property owner and the renter, the deposit is kept in the TDP for as long as it takes for the two parties to resolve the issue. The tenant has the right to receive the deposit within 10 days of the payment being agreed upon.

    Landlord Rights Concerning the Initial Deposit

    In some cases, property owners are within their rights to charge renters. A landlord might deduct from your deposit when certain criteria aren’t met. It could be related to the physical deterioration of the rental unit or the hygiene itself.

    For example, if there are stains on the carpet, furniture or walls that were not there on the day of move-in, they may reclaim expenses to cover the cost it takes to fix the issues.

    If the house was left in a terrible condition, the landlord can take away from the initial deposit to pay for the lease cleaning service. If you want to avoid these charges, you need to take time to clean every room to a reasonable standard. The other way to go is to have the property professionally cleaned.

    Common Mistakes with DIY End of Tenancy Cleaning

    End of tenancy cleaning can go wrong at times. If you are the one doing the cleaning on your property and you are not a certified cleaner, there are a few mistakes to keep in mind.

    Lacking experience in end of tenancy cleaning

    It’s worth noting that end of tenancy cleaning is different from normal cleaning that people are used to carrying out day in and day out. It involves a lot more areas and a lot more tasks. You need to have certain skills and know how to approach different cleaning issues.

    If you lack the proper cleaning techniques, you may do a poor job and even damage some of the surfaces. Keep in mind that your landlord may refuse to give your deposit back if you overlook areas on the premises.

    Using inadequate methods and tools for end of tenancy cleaning

    Every issue requires a different approach. Likewise, different stains require different cleaning methods. Unless you apply the right techniques, you cannot ensure a thorough clean. With stains, you have to analyse the type of stain that you are dealing with to figure out the proper cleaning solution.

    Another consideration to make is the type of surface you want to clean. Wood doesn’t tolerate ammonia and vinegar. Most carpets and moisture don’t do well together. Steam cleaning may not be the best option for pet stains that haven’t had the time to set in. The list goes on.

    Doing rushed end of tenancy cleaning

    An end of tenancy clean is a type of thorough cleaning that requires your full attention for hours on end. It takes a huge amount of time to cover every nook and cranny. You need to be diligent and careful; otherwise, there could be some missed areas.

    Forgetting to document the end of tenancy cleaning process

    If you want to show your landlord that you put in the effort to bring the property back to its previous state, you should document the whole process. You can also show before and after pictures to help them see the difference.

    Not booking professional cleaning services

    Even if you do the final cleaning yourself, you may still need to hire professional move out cleaners for some of the jobs. These include carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, deep oven cleaning, curtain cleaning, and window cleaning. Sometimes professional oven cleaning may be all you need to get the desired results.

    Avoiding these mistakes increases your chances of getting your full deposit back.

    Regular Cleaning Versus End of Tenancy Cleaning Services

    one of our cleaners vacuuming upholstery

    Regular house cleaning involves some basic cleaning tasks around the house like sweeping the floors, dusting, removing visible dirt and cobwebs, as well as hoovering the carpets, emptying the trash can, and cleaning the bathroom.

    These tasks usually require minimal effort and take little time to carry out. Many areas get skipped during the process.

    On the other end of the spectrum, end of tenancy cleaning covers every area of every room in the house. This includes the space behind the sofa and under the bed, light switches, awkward corners, ceilings, lamps, walls, skirting boards, and even the areas you don’t have easy access to.

    These two types of cleaning services have different objectives. Regular house cleaning aims to keep the home clean and tidy on a day-to-day basis without performing any tough tasks. The service is provided every week or on an as-needed basis.

    When it comes to end of tenancy cleaning, it is a one-off service whose purpose is to achieve a high level of cleanliness so that the place can be occupied as soon as possible. It also helps tenants get their security deposits back. There is usually some guarantee that ensures customer satisfaction at all times.

    Professional cleaning companies have their own cleaning checklists which often align with landlords and estate agents’ expectations.

    What You Need to Know Before Making an End of Tenancy Cleaning Appointment

    Before you hire end of tenancy cleaners, you should examine your tenancy agreement and check-in report for specific areas that have to be deep cleaned. If your landlord wants certain areas cleaned to a T, the contract must state that.

    Make sure to vocalise this to the professional cleaning company and ensure it gets on their end of tenancy cleaning checklist so that you can get your rental deposit back.

    You should know that our cleaning products do not contain any harsh chemicals and they are safe to use around pets and kids. If the property has a big mould problem, we will not handle it. You had better call an expert to have it removed.
