Here in Perth, end of lease cleaning can be a quite the mission as real estate agents and property managers are notoriously fussy about the condition you leave your rental property in. If you don’t want to risk losing your bond, it’s important that a thorough vacate clean is done after you have moved out and before you hand in your keys.
The thousands of successful vacate cleans we have under our belt has taught us that having a thorough cleaning checklist is not just a good idea, it’s practically essential. Gone are the days when ‘giving everything a wipe down’ will cut it; especially when there are some tasks that may not have been attended to for quite some time. How often do you clean your window tracks? When was the last time you cleaned your exhaust fan covers? What will be left behind when you remove the fridge from its nook?
Due to popular demand, we have decided to post a copy of our vacate clean checklist here – an overall summary as well as a room-by-room breakdown that you can print out and use yourself. As we offer partial vacate cleans too, where you do part of the job and we do the rest, these checklists can also be useful to help you decide what tasks you’ll be able to do yourself.
The quick checklist
Use this vacate clean quick checklist to see all the items we clean in each area of your property. Only window cleaning, window tracks and a few other tasks are charged for separately; all other cleaning tasks fall under ‘general vacate cleaning’. Please note that we DO NOT clean or remove mould and we DO NOT clean blinds.
We work systematically through from top to bottom and heavily soiled items are left to soak to minimise scrubbing time. We provide all products and equipment needed for the whole job, including vacuums, mops, ladders, and cleaning products.
If you’d like us to do a ‘partial vacate clean’, let us know which tasks or which areas you’ll be doing yourself and we’ll do the rest!
The Full Room-by-Room List
When you’re ready to get down to business, you might find this room-by-room 'ultimate' checklist more helpful. Don’t get caught out doing ceiling fans in one room but not another – use our detailed vacate clean checklist to nail every task in every area of your property.
This is the exact same list that we here at All Pure Cleaning use when we complete your vacate clean. We have made it as detailed as possible so no stone is left unturned, and we regularly take notes when we encounter something damaged, something that can’t be cleaned, something that requires attention or even something you’ve left behind. We have made it available as a free printable so that you can download it and use it for your next DIY vacate clean!
If, however, you’re daunted by the task at hand, give us a call and we’d be happy to quote you for a full vacate clean, a partial vacate clean or something in the middle.
