If you’re a tenant

If you’re a tenant, whose tenancy lease is coming to an end, then you’ll realize that moving out isn’t as easy as you would have thought – not easy at all, without hiring end of tenancy cleaning services. Especially, when you are legally obliged to clean the whole house & return it to its original state (which was when you first acquired & moved in). You might think that you’ll be able to clean the whole house – all by yourself. But let’s face the truth – it is really difficult. Not because you can’t, but because you should not.

The reason is that you’re going to be a lot busier in the next few days, looking for a new house, taking care of your family, trying to keep up with the job & so many other responsibilities. The need of the time is to hire a really efficient & reliable cleaning company to provide you with the end of tenancy cleaning. Especially, if you don’t want to disappoint your landlord during the inspection. In case, he/she doesn’t like your effort (of cleaning the house by yourself), your landlord might deduct a major portion of your deposit.

If you’re a landlord

Not every tenant is ideal. You can be assured of this fact at the end of tenancy lease when the tenant leaves the house or apartment in a bad shape. There will be stains, blotches, dust, dirt, & paint spatters all over the house. Hiring a regular maid or cleaner won’t be the answer to all that mess. You’ll need a much better & efficient source to clean all that mess. Hiring our end of tenancy cleaning service for instance.

We have highly trained our leaning professionals to make sure that your house is returned is to its original well-ordered shape, when they’ve finished their work.
