When vacating a rental property at the end of a tenancy agreement, the requirements are to have the house cleaning done and also the carpet cleaning and pest treatment. Some tenants do the general cleaning of walls, ovens and bathrooms themselves and then hire the services of a professional carpet cleaning company to steam clean or dry clean the carpets and then hire the services of a professional pest control company to do the spraying of cockroaches and fleas.
The best way to do the total cleaning and pest control is to contact a company that does bond carpet cleaning Brisbane. This way you can have all the carpet cleaning and pest control done by the same company and save yourself time and money. This also gives you peace of mind knowing the services are being carried out by a professional that offers a full 100% guarantee on their work.
General Hose Cleaning
The general house cleaning should be done first; this will include the kitchen and oven and the bathrooms. Then, the walls and skirting boards will have to be wiped over to help remove any finger prints and marks that may have occurred during the time of the tenancy. After the cleaning has been done the carpets would be done by using a steam cleaning or dry cleaning machine. It’s important that the carpets are cleaned after the general cleaning so that no spills can occur, and any spills that do occur during the cleaning of the walls etc can be cleaned up when doing the carpets.
After all of the cleaning has been completed, the pest control would be done; this would involve an internal and external spray of the property. The internal part would include the kitchen and the inside of the cupboards and all of the skirting boards. The external spray would be mainly for fleas. Fleas need to be done internally and externally if there has been a pet on the premises. The property manager will require a receipt from a licensed pest controller before they will have the bond released from the RTA. The pest treatment would also have to carry a 3 month warranty or the agent may request it be done again at the expense of the tenant.
What happens when you’ve hired a cleaning company and the property manager reject parts of the carpet clean and asks for them to come back and redo some areas? This is when hiring a professional company will pay dividends because the work would be backed up with a full 100% bond back guarantee. A cheap bond clean may be cheap at the time. But if it needs another cleaning company in to finish it off, then it can run into a lot more money.
Bond Cleaning Sunshine Coast
After all the cleaning has been done, the bond cleaning Sunshine Coast company would do a last walk through inspection of the carpets to make sure that the job is completed properly. This can also be done with the tenant; this way the tenant gets to see the completed job before having to pay. After the final walk through, the property manager should be the next person in the house. This way there is no way of any further mess being made.
Whether you live in Brisbane, Ipswich, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth or Darwin, you should always use a professional bond cleaner when exiting a rental property in order to have your bond fully refunded by the RTA. In the case of a dispute over the cleaning, it can take weeks to be resolved and can even end up in court. To be sure, use a reputable company that has experience in getting bonds back.
