Questions to Ask Your End of Lease Cleaning Company
How much does it cost?
WARNING: Be wary of ‘super cheap’ prices which sound too good to be true. You usually get what you pay for.
The cost really depends on the size of your home, the condition it is in, and any extra services you require.
Many companies offer fixed priced packages, and will include any return visits required to re-clean once the real estate agent has inspected the property.
Expect to pay between $20 and $40 per hour for a professional cleaner, or between $200 and $350 for an average sized home (theses costs don’t include any additional extras like wall, carpet or exterior window cleaning).
End of Lease Cleaning Checklist
Your service should be customised to suit your own needs, but will usually include the following:
Walls: Removal of marks & dust (including around power points and fixtures / fittings). Dusting of high areas including ceiling fans and lights.
Windows: Wash of glass inside and out (wash and/or dust screens)
Kitchen: Clean all cupboards inside and out, oven, sinks and bench tops
Laundry: Clean sink and all fittings.
Bathroom: Remove soap scum from shower/bath areas and tiles/grout. Clean wash basin, taps, vanity area (including all fixtures and fittings)
Floors: Clean all (accessible) floors with either vacuum or mop depending on surface (carpet cleaning may also be required)
Most companies can also help with other areas such as the garage, window cleaning, pressure washing and more extensive cleaning of certain areas.
Can I do it myself or do I need to hire a professional?
Many people choose to clean their home themselves at the end of a lease, and you are not required to use a professional cleaner. However because of the time it takes, and the other jobs that need to be done when moving home, many people find it easier to hire an expert to do the job for them.
It is important to note that steam carpet cleaning is not always required, and in NSW it cannot be included as a condition in your contract. Outside of NSW, if you have a clause specifically written in to your contract, you may need to have your carpets professionally cleaned.
