When a rental period has finished, end of lease cleaning is necessary to make sure the property is ready to be occupied by new tenants.

In tenancy agreements, it is common practice to stipulate that the tenant must have the property professionally cleaned before it is returned to the landlord. It is important to make this clear in the contract to avoid any conflict arising later.

According to the Tenant Fees Act 2019, the tenant is under an obligation to give the property back to the landlord in its pre-rental condition. This makes a thorough end of lease clean even more important.

We have put together some useful information about what end of lease cleaning entails and how this experience can be less stressful.

Making the process as simple as possible 

Each property is unique and has its own specific cleaning requirements. These can vary depending on the size of the property, its age, and how it is used.

Hiring a professional team to conduct end of lease cleaning services will ensure the property is returned to you in pristine condition.

We offer end of lease cleaning here at ICE, which will provide you with outstanding results. We can also accommodate any specific cleaning requirements you have if you get in touch with our dedicated customer service team at least a day before the clean is due to take place.

What the end of lease cleaning process involves

Our main priority when cleaning the property is to return it to you in a sanitised and fresh state ready for you to welcome new tenants.

A large part of end of lease cleaning will be to give high touch points a rigorous deep clean. These are areas that see a higher volume of use and therefore require special attention to ensure a high standard of cleanliness.

Examples of high touch points in properties include:

  • Door handles
  • Plug sockets
  • Light switches
  • All kitchen areas
  • Toilets/washrooms/bathrooms
  • Cabinets
  • Curtains
  • Carpets and floors
  • Upholstery & furniture

At ICE Cleaning we use our innovative technology ICE SHIELD® on these touch points. The technology is scientifically proven to remove 99.9% of bacteria and viruses from surfaces for up to 28 days.

Specialist equipment such as this is important during end of lease cleaning services because although bleach can remove bacteria so that it is not visible to the naked eye, toxins on surfaces will remain without further treatment.

Our cleaning team will ensure that your property is returned to its pre-rental condition and have a wealth of experience in end of lease cleaning.

Steam cleaning

Furniture and upholstery can become very stained from continuous use by domestic and commercial tenants, so professionally cleaning them before new tenants arrive is likely to be appreciated.

In our end of lease cleaning process, we use a non-abrasive and environmentally friendly solution to steam clean your belongings. This is a great cleaning solution that provides excellent results.

Wall cleaning 

It might shock you to learn how much dirt attaches itself to walls in properties. When hiring an end of lease cleaning company, it is a good idea to make sure that the walls are cleaned.

Dirty walls can impact the aesthetic of your property, and if you find yourself in this situation it may be tempting to hire a painter to cover it up. However, this would only remove the visibility of the dirt, not its source.

Our team can help you with this at the end of a lease. During the cleaning process we will remove spots and discolouration from the walls and help prepare your property for new tenants.

Environmentally friendly products

We try to use as many environmentally friendly products in our end of lease cleaning services as we can. A cautious approach is necessary because there may be other people in the property, and we want to prevent the possibility of anyone inhaling toxic fumes.

This reflects a growing trend towards green cleaning products generally, with GlobeNewswire.com reporting that in 2029, the industry will be worth $11.6 billion.

In the cleaning process, our experts use products and detergents that are not available commercially. This will give you the best cleaning results at the end of a lease.

The number of professionals required for an end of lease clean

This is dependent on several factors, such as how much dirt is present in the property, or the size of the building. A property manager may also be necessary in the end of lease cleaning process to assess the damage to the property and any hazards that need special treatment.

As we have extensive experience in end of lease cleaning, we are conscious of the time limit you may have to ready your property for new tenants.

Therefore, we will work with you to meet any time restrictions you have for the cleaning process. We can also create a bespoke cleaning plan suitable for your needs if required.

Other services we offer to help you manage your property

We also offer contract cleaning, where we can help you provide a safe and hazardous free space for your tenants. We can provide this service to you on a regular basis, or as often as you require.

Our property management cleaning services may also be of interest to you for the maintenance of your building. We offer all these services in a range of settings, including industrial, commercial, and domestic properties.

Get in touch

No matter what your cleaning needs are for managing your properties, we are here to help you.

Our teams are available 24/7 to answer any queries you may, so please do give us a call on 0333 577 5805 or email us at enquiries@icecleaning.co.uk to discuss our services further.
