I’ve done blog’s on this topic a few times, but it’s a question that keeps popping up when we are talking to customers on the phone.
The main thing we get asked is when to have the carpets cleaned when vacating a rental property and the other big question is do we guarantee our work.
The answer to these questions are in my latest video in the link above, but if you prefer I’ll explain it here now.
Ok so when should you have your carpets steam or dry cleaned during the process of vacating a rental property that you have to hand back to your realestate agent.
The simple fast answer to this is at the very end, the carpet cleaner should be the last person in your property, so this is when all the other cleaning has been completed, such as the general bond cleaning, this includes kitchens, bathrooms, walls, windows etc.
You need to make sure that the house or unit is ready for another tenant or your agent will simply hold part or your entire bond in order to fix up any problems that they are not happy with.
So make sure the carpeted area’s being cleaned are empty and pre-vacuumed before your carpet cleaner arrives, this will ensure a Hassall free exit clean of your property, and after the carpets have been done no one should walk on them again until your property manager has been in to do their final inspection.
Now as far as a guarantee goes all cleaning that has been done should come with some sort of a warranty, this will help you in getting your bond back fast and Hassall free.
Our guarantee is in place for one week on all carpet cleaning for empty properties, this allows sufficient time for the agent to inspect the property and past it off and have your bond released.
The idea of using a reputable company that guarantee’s there work when vacating a rental, is that it gives you peace of mind knowing that if there are any problems brought up during the inspection process you are covered and have the help there to sort out and fix any issues.
Realestate agents are very fussy when it comes to hand over of keys at the end of a tenancy, so be sure to use a reputable cleaning company like Best 1 cleaning and pest control to help you with your cleaning needs.
