End of Tenancy Cleaning – Getting Your Deposit Back

end of tenancy carpet cleaning

Moving out of a property and into a new home is an exciting event that takes time and preparation. It’s understandable to find yourself prioritising plans for your new place, however, neglecting your responsibility to leave your existing residence in good condition when you leave can put you in a difficult situation with your landlord. 

The stress of moving home shouldn’t be made worse by the added pressure of getting your deposit back from your landlord. End-of-tenancy cleaning is one of the most common causes of landlord/tenant disputes in the property rental market. While cleanliness can be a subjective matter, landlords tend to have an eagle eye with high standards and expectations.

Squeaky clean standards

It is very likely that when you moved into your property it was spotless. As a tenant, you have a contracted responsibility to maintain those high cleaning standards when you’re moving out. Hiring professional cleaners to get your property back to its original state will maximise your chances of reclaiming your deposit, making the moving-out process a whole lot less stressful.

Your contract normally states that your landlord is well within their legal rights to use your deposit to pay for professional cleaning services if you have not adhered to their standards of cleanliness. So don’t take a chance, call in the professionals.

The risks of DIY cleaning

In order to conserve some cash for your new place, you might be tempted to give the whole deep cleaning thing a go yourself. But, it is not as easy as you might think…

One of the issues you will face is a lack of specialised knowledge, as, after all, you are not a carpet cleaning specialist. Our team of highly trained professionals undertake NCCA-accredited training so you can always rest assured that your cleaning job is in safe hands.

Another risk of DIY cleaning is that you could actually ruin the carpet by using too much of a product or indeed the incorrect products when trying to shift a stubborn stain. We are a WoolSafe-certified cleaner, which means that we only use certified products with the correct techniques to achieve the very best possible outcomes.

Sometimes, no matter how much time and effort you devote to a cleaning job, DIY can still struggle to meet the quality benchmark which many landlords uphold. So, if you are thinking about saving some cash on cleaning, think again. It could actually end up costing you more money in the long run.

Certified carpet cleaning

Carpets in all properties are subject to a significant amount of footfall, meaning over time they accumulate all sorts of dirt and debris. While vacuuming can lift the top layer of dirt, this is not sufficient to claim back your deposit.

We use the latest cleaning technologies to deliver the highest quality deep carpet cleaning services across the North East. This includes professional spot and stain removal for all those marks you thought would never come out.

Hiring professional carpet cleaners may also help your chances of getting a good reference from your landlord. This is particularly important if you are moving into another property.

Comprehensive cleaning for soft furnishings

Like the carpets in the property, soft furnishings and mattresses also pick up dirt and discoloration over time, and, if not dealt with, you might face a deposit deduction. Our specialist training ensures our team is equipped for all types of upholstery cleaning.

Our mattress cleaning services use non-toxic methods to eliminate bacteria which is accumulated from natural build-up over time.

To quickly restore carpets and furniture back to how they were when you first moved in, and to save yourself a lot of stress and bother, call the professionals at Paul Dyson Commercial Floor Cleaning. Get in touch today for high-quality cleaning solutions.
