Vacate cleaning tips to help get your bond back!
Moving to a new rental property? Stressed out about getting your bond back? Here are a few of the things commonly missed by tenants when vacate cleaning!
Inside the property
When a real estate agent goes through a property to complete a final inspection, their job is to look at the overall condition of the property, but also to check that it has been cleaned properly and ready for the next tenant! Below is a list of places commonly missed by vacating tenants:
Behind fridges/washing machines
Sinks in the kitchen/bathroom
Bathroom or kitchen fans
Stove tops / range hoods
Outside the property
A misconception held by many new tenants, is that the outside of the property is not their responsibility or will not have to be cleaned up upon vacating. Below are some of the things that real agents will look at when doing their final inspection:
Driveways / garage floors
Garden; lawns, weeds, overgrown trees
External windows and window sills
Eaves cleaned of cobwebs
Excess dust, leaves, rubbish has been cleaned
