Get in touch today to find out how our end-of-tenancy cleaning service in Seahouses can take the stress out of a tenancy clean, protect your deposit, or ensure that your property is ready for the next tenants to move in.
We cover all aspects of end-of-lease cleaning and our team of fully trained, vetted, and professional cleaners are committed to ensuring that your property is cleaned in an efficient and thorough manner. We can work at a time that suits you and are able to accommodate many additional cleaning tasks.
End-of-tenancy cleaning is one of the most sought-after professional cleaning services and it is one of the more challenging cleaning tasks to complete to the required standard.
This is because end-of-tenancy cleaning has a very specific goal in mind that has to be met. It is the most thorough of standard domestic cleaning services and is much more in-depth than a regular weekly clean and even a one-off deep cleaning. For example, you can expect your move-out cleaners to tackle the inside of cupboards, ovens, fridge-freezers, etc, rather than just cleaning external surfaces.
After an end-of-tenancy clean, you can expect the entire property to be professionally cleaned from top to bottom and fully ready for a tenant to move in.
When your tenancy began, you will have paid a tenancy deposit, which is usually around the cost of a month's rent. Not a small amount of money! And, as part of your tenancy agreement, there will have to be a section related to the cleanliness of the property after you leave. This agreement will cover what situations money can be deducted from your deposit, as part of the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme.
Usually, the cleaning part of the tenancy agreement will stipulate that the property be left in the condition it was when you moved in. If this part of the agreement is not met, and the property is not as clean as it was when you moved in, then your landlord will be entitled to subtract the cost of professional cleaning services from your security deposit. This means that you won't receive your full deposit back when you leave.
In fact, cleaning issues are the leading cause of tenants losing their full deposit. For this reason, cleaning at the end of your tenancy should be a priority.
When you first moved into the property, you would have had a walkaround with the landlord or estate agent and have been given a document highlighting in detail the cleanliness of each room, often with photos. This document is key because end-of-tenancy cleaning aims to bring the property back to the exact standard that it was when the document was made. If you notice any cleanliness issues during this walkaround it is important that you make note of them (ideally with photographs) in case you need to refer back to them when you are ready to leave.
Making sure that your end-of-lease cleaning is up to standard won't just help you to secure the return of your deposit, but it will also make it much more likely that your landlord will give you a decent reference. This will make it much easier for you to be able to rent somewhere else later on. It's always a good idea to leave on good terms and cleaning is an important part of this.
This used to depend on your landlord or estate agents and what was written in your tenancy agreement. Some landlords used to stipulate that a professional cleaning company needs to be used for your end-of-tenancy cleaning, and would require proof of this in the form of a written receipt.
Since 2019, however, it has been illegal for landlords to require that tenants use a professional service for their end-of-tenancy cleaning (see the Tenants Fees Act, 2019). So it is possible to complete your end-of-tenancy cleaning yourself. But this often isn't advised. But, landlords are still able to deduct the cost of professional cleaners if the property is not left in the same condition as it was when you moved in.
As we have mentioned, tenancy cleaning is a thorough and in-depth type of cleaning that needs to leave the property spotless and move-in ready. This can be extremely difficult for non-professional cleaners to achieve for a variety of reasons so it is usually a good idea to employ a professional service to complete the cleaning for you.
The Sparkle Gang in Seahouses is a team of cleaners who provide reliable service and deliver a high-quality professional clean, every time. We are experienced and knowledgeable about the specific needs and challenges related to end-of-tenancy cleaning and are committed to ensuring that you receive a deep clean that will leave you eligible for the return of your full tenant's deposit.
Some of the benefits of using a professional company of local cleaners for your end-of-tenancy cleaning include:
Our cleaning team cleans as their day job. They have the resources to put their full attention and time to complete your cleaning service. It can be much more difficult to try and finish a tenancy cleaning to the same exacting standards while trying to juggle it alongside your other work and family responsibilities.
A professional cleaning service will take that stress off your hands and pay their full attention to ensuring that your rental property is cleaned to the highest professional standards.
If you have never completed a tenancy clean before, you may not be fully aware of all of the cleaning tasks that need to be completed in order to get the property to the correct cleanliness standard.
Our team of professional tenancy cleaners have plenty of experience in this type of cleaning service and have an in-depth knowledge of all of the cleaning tasks and standards that need to be met.
We use a detailed and exact end-of-tenancy cleaning checklist to ensure that each one of the properties we clean is completed to the correct level, and our cleaners are experienced with how to implement it.
When you have a property in Seahouses professionally cleaned, you can be sure that the tenancy cleaning company will be using professional cleaning materials and equipment. And this alone can make a big difference when it comes to the level of cleanliness you can achieve.
We use the highest quality cleaning products and professional equipment so you can be sure that the property will be cleaned to the correct standard. And this can be difficult to achieve with the sorts of products you would normally use at home.
You may have heard about "fair wear and tear". This is a protection for tenants which means it is expected that the property will degrade somewhat simply as a consequence of someone living there, and they won't incur costs for that.
A classic example is that carpets will start to fade or get scuffed because they are walked on daily, and a tenant wouldn't be expected to replace them simply because of that. It is important to remember, however, that this type of damage is separate from cleanliness. While it wouldn't be expected that carpets stay exactly like new ones after a tenant has lived in a property for several years, clean carpets are a reasonable expectation.
Professional cleaning is still important to ensure that the property is left in the same clean condition as it was when the tenants moved in.
As a landlord, your goal when moving tenants out and new tenants in is to make the process as streamlined and seamless as possible. Issues with cleaning between tenants can make the period between tenants stressful and difficult to manage.
Having reliable and high-quality professional cleaners to hand can be invaluable in helping you to deal with tenancy cleaning issues and can help your new tenants to settle in easily.
If your old tenants have come to the end of their tenancy and the cleaning standard of the property isn't in the condition it was when they moved in, you will now need to tackle the cleaning yourself so that it is ready for the next tenants to move in.
While you could tackle the property clean yourself, to ensure a fantastic job, using a professional company is usually your best bet.
Our team of professional cleaners will always ensure that your property is cleaned to the very highest standards and ready for your new tenants to move in.
There are two situations where a landlord would want to use our services. If you are satisfied with the cleaning level after your previous tenants have moved out but you want to hire a cleaning service to give the rental property another clean before the next tenants move in, then the cost will be yours. If, however, you are not satisfied with the end-of-tenancy cleaning after your tenants have moved out and you wish to rectify it using a cleaning service, then this can be deducted from the security deposit that was given to you at the start of their tenancy.
There are strict rules surrounding the release of a tenancy deposit, but cleaning services are one of the most common reasons why a portion of the deposit will need to be retained.
The most important thing you can do if you want to ensure that you are protected when it comes to the cleanliness of your rental property is to have a clear and detailed inventory with photographic evidence.
Your tenants are only required to ensure that the property is to the cleaning standard that it was when they moved in, and the inventory and move-in checklist that is signed by you and them, when they move in, is the only proof either of you has of the condition it was.
Because of this, it is important that you be specific. For example, if carpet cleaning was carried out, this needs to be put in the inventory. Otherwise, the tenants have no obligation to ensure that the carpets are cleaned, and not just vacuumed when they move out.

Similarly, however, this checklist is a useful tool for both you and your tenant to make sure that you are on the same page when the move-out date arrives and can help to prevent any time-consuming disputes later on.

Our end-of-tenancy cleaning services are perfect for both tenants and landlords. Our team of fully trained, vetted, and professional cleaners is committed to ensuring that the property is cleaned to the highest of standards.
An end-of-tenancy service is a specific type of cleaning. It includes the sorts of cleaning tasks that you would expect from a regular domestic clean but it goes far beyond that and also includes tasks that are designed to create a clean and sanitary living environment for your next tenants.
While we have a checklist of cleaning tasks that would normally be completed during an end-of-tenancy cleaning service, if you do have any additional or combined services that you would like to include, just get in touch and discuss your needs with one of our team.
The kitchen is the area of the property where it will be most obvious how an end-of-tenancy cleaning service differs from a standard cleaning service. The tenancy cleaners will address areas of the kitchen that wouldn't normally be touched during a normal clean, which would only focus on outer surfaces. This includes internal cleaning of appliances and cupboards.
Our professional end-of-tenancy service focuses on internal property. External cleaning, including garden maintenance, exterior window cleaning, brickwork cleaning, etc is not included.
Our Seahouses end-of-tenancy cleaning service is easy to organise and reliable, so you can rest assured that the lease cleaning will be completed on a schedule that works for you. All you have to do is get in touch with us and our helpful team will be on hand to help discuss your needs. We will give you a quote for how long the process will take and how much it will cost, so you will know beforehand exactly what to expect.
An end-of-tenancy service can only be properly completed once your possessions have all been removed from the property. So once you know your move-out date, you can schedule our end-of-tenancy deep cleaning. We will go through everything that needs to be done, and additional requirements from you or your landlord, and we will provide you with a receipt for our work at the end.
Our end-of-tenancy cleaning service is flexible, so just get in touch and we can organise for our tenancy cleaners to come out at a date and tie that suits you. We are often able to accommodate short-notice requests if needed. And if you have a regular need for our services, we can work out a schedule that suits you.
The cost of our professional end-of-tenancy cleaning will depend on a variety of factors. This will include the size of the property, how many cleaners are needed to complete the work, any additional cleaning tasks that are required, and the timescale in which the work needs to be completed.
Our prices are extremely competitive, and we will discuss a clear quote with you before the service begins.
Of course. While we have our own cleaning checklist for end-of-tenancy cleans, we are more than happy to work with a landlord’s individual one. Our goal is to ensure that our results are perfect for you, so we are very flexible.
So if you're a landlord and you have specific requirements for our move-out cleaners, just let us know. Or if you're a tenant and you want to make sure that you meet your landlord's cleaning checklist, we can help.
If you regularly have cleaners come in to clean the property, or if you have periodic deep cleaning completed by cleaning companies, you know what standard professional cleaning looks like.
An end-of-tenancy clean is very different. While it covers many of the cleaning tasks you would usually expect, such as vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down surfaces, it also includes tasks that wouldn’t normally be included in a standard clean.
The most obvious of these are tasks such as oven cleaning. During a normal cleaning service, the outside of your oven and your hob would usually be cleaned, but internal oven cleaning would not be completed. The inside of your oven will be cleaned during an end-of-tenancy cleaning service.
So you can think of end-of-tenancy cleaning as a much more in-depth and thorough cleaning than other types of cleaning services.
Our cleaners will need access to the property, as well as to electricity and hot water, but you don't need to stay during the cleaning. Ensuring that we have a place to park, and that parking fees are covered or don't apply, will also help us with the job completion.
All cleaning companies will tell you that the time a job takes depends on a variety of factors. These include the size of the property, the amount of furniture and appliances it contains, and any additional cleaning tasks that need doing. We will be able to give you an estimate of how long we think your cleaning will take before we start work.
As soon as our end-of-tenancy cleaners arrive, you will know you are in safe hands. Our hardworking cleaning technicians have the cleaning equipment and cleaning materials needed to provide you with the highest standard of cleaning. And, perhaps more importantly, they also have the skill, knowledge, and experience to do a fantastic job every single time.
We understand just how important an end-of-tenancy clean is, for both tenants and landlords, so you can be sure that our professional end-of-lease cleaning service is fully geared towards leaving the property fully clean throughout and ready for the next tenants to happily move in.
While we have developed our own comprehensive end-of-tenancy clean checklist, if you have any specific areas you want us to prioritise or any additional cleaning tasks you would wish to be completed, just let us know. Our team is fully committed to ensuring that you get the results that you want.
Just get in touch and find out how The Sparkle Gang can help you with your end-of-tenancy cleaning today. Our helpful and dedicated team is looking forward to working with you.
