Most discerning landlords, whether they are letting their property to a family, a professional couple or students, will understand the benefits of employing a professional cleaning company for all end-of-tenancy cleans.
There’s no doubt that once tenants have moved out, a professional deep clean can make the difference between re-letting a property quickly or it being empty and losing you money for long periods of time. The last thing new tenants want to think about during the stressful moving process is to have to clean a property to acceptable standards just as they move in.
Good tenants will usually make the effort to clean a rental property themselves as they move out as they want to be sure to get their deposit back. Unfortunately, most people don’t have access to the cleaning equipment and products that a commercial cleaning company will use. So, the standards of cleaning won’t be as high as when carried out by the professionals, creating a less than appealing environment for potential new tenants. This however tends not to be the case for students lets as these young people tend to want to move out as quickly as possible once their exams are over!
Benefits of Professional Cleaning for Landlords
It is the responsibility of the landlord (or their managing agent) to ensure their rental property meets the highest levels of hygiene and cleaning. An end-of-tenancy clean by professionals will increase the property’s rental potential at the best price possible. Tenants will always be prepared to pay that little bit more for a well cleaned, neat and tidy property than a scruffy, grubby one.
And don’t forget, this also applies to student rentals as it’s generally the parents whom you need to impress as many tend to foot the rental bill.
Hiring the services of professional cleaning company, like JDK Cleaning which specialises in end of tenancy cleans, is the best option that guarantees a deep clean of the property will be carried out.
