When selling your home, the first impressions of a potential buyer last and what they see will stick with them. To have the best possible chance of selling your home in the first few weeks of advertising it, why not have a steam cleaner do the carpets and tiles? This also goes for tenants exiting a rental property at the end of lease. The cleaning must be up to standard for the real estate agent or property manager to return the bond. The RTA holds the bond on a rental until the agent is happy with the bond cleaning and do their final inspection.
Carpet cleaning will make the house look completely different. Having a professional carpet clean done will not only remove the dirt and stains, but will also lift the pile giving it a new look again. Another good reason to have your carpets steam cleaned or carpet dry cleaning is to remove any unpleasant smells. Bad smells can easily put people of buying a property.
General House Clean
A general house clean would also be a good selling point. When all the furniture is moved out of the home, small marks and scratches show up and make the paint work look worse than it is. Having a professional house cleaning company do a thorough clean will give a better first impression.
Tiles are an area that is often forgotten about in the house, apart from giving them a mop once a week. But when they get to the point where the grout lines are looking very dirty, the only way to clean them effectively is by using a professional tile cleaning company to do a steam clean. This will blast away the dirt and grime that has built up over time, leaving the tile surface with a new shine.
Bathrooms are the worst for soap scum build-up and it is very hard to get them to a satisfactory standard. In most cases, a good acidic cleaning solution is needed. This would be sprayed onto the tile surface and left for some time to etch into the dirt, making it easier to remove the soap scum with the steam cleaner.
Application of Deodorisers and Sanitisers
Once all the cleaning is done, the house can be deodorised. This will give a pleasant smell for when people walk through. The deodoriser can be applied to the carpets and even the walls. It is usually sprayed on to the walls and left to dry, so when there is air movement the deodoriser would be activated again. It can also be applied to fly screens, so when the windows are open the air passing through the fly screen will once again activate the deodoriser, leaving a pleasant fragrance around the home.
With the different real estate markets we have around our capital cites Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and even the Gold and Sunshine Coast, it’s important to give your home the best chance to sell fast. Hiring the services of a carpet cleaning company that can give the home a lift will benefit it greatly. Using a professional cleaning company that is used to doing tough jobs like bond cleaning for people exiting a rental property at the end of lease clean will mean your home is in good hands and will guarantee the best possible results.
