Tenants ask whether they can clean their property themselves or not. Many of them like to clean the property while some of them hire the end of lease cleaners because of lack of time. Whatever the option you select for the home, you need to clean the home properly for receiving the bond deposit.

Condition of the Property

The amount of bond deposit you get depends on the condition of the property. You have to return the home in the same condition as it was when you started the end of the lease period. The condition report of the property is taken into consideration while calculating the amount of bond deposit.

If the property has scuffs or damages at the start of the tenancy period, it is not your responsibility to fix those damages. You are responsible for intentional damages to the property.

What is the “Clean Property” According to the Landlord or Agent?

The definition of “Clean Property” changes in every case. According to the landlords and agents, the tenants must clean the property thoroughly at the end of the lease period. In other words, the landlord and agent must like the quality of your cleaning work. If they do not like the condition of the property or the quality of cleaning work, they will pay only the half amount of bond money.

It is necessary to clean the full home from doorknobs to outdoor spaces. You should also clean the bathroom, vanity, and toilets.

Can I Clean the Home Myself or Hire a Professional Cleaner?

This is the most common question that many tenants ask at the end of the tenancy clean period. If you have the budget to purchase all the cleaning tools, you can do it yourself. On the other hand, the option of hiring cleaners is better if you have less time.

One benefit of choosing the end of the lease cleaning team is that you can get the bond back guarantee. Contrary to that, there is no bond back guarantee if you clean the property yourself.

In addition to that, you will receive insurance while hiring the end of lease cleaners. They will provide the charges if there is any damage to the property.
