Country Life Carpet CareMoving house? The last thing to think about is the cleaning when you’re moving house but to get your bond back you need to.

Here are 5 tips,

  1. Check your condition report and be honest about any damage
  2. Understand your obligations
  3. Get professional cleaning services – especially your carpets
  4. Do other cleaning yourself
  5. Vacate by the due date and Return all keys

Check your condition report and be honest about any damage

Find your inspection report that you got from the property manager as you enter the house to assess the condition of the house. Take the report for each room and note the difference from the original report.

Be honest in noting the damages as some may fall under the category of ‘fair wear and tear’. Handle everything with care to make sure anything that is counted “fair” will not be charged to you.

Understand your obligations

Provide the correct notice that is required to end your lease agreement as it is noted under the Tenancy Act. Never break the lease,always provide enough notice to avoid ending up having to pay costs which will be taken from your bond.

Pay your outstanding bills such as power payments as it is your obligation to clear all your charges upon vacating the house.

Get professional cleaning services – especially your carpets

Do other cleaning yourself

Doa bit of elbow grease during your spare time with some cleaning materials to bring the properties back to their conditions. Assess your checklist to identify which areas need to be cleaned.

Always keep the house clean even the areas you seldom use as this can help you prevent exerting much effort when you are about to leave the house. All furniture pieces should be free of dust as well as vents of air conditioners and heaters to avoid damages.

Make sure you remember to clean the oven too. Work on one room at a time and when you are done move onto the next.

Vacate by the due date and Return all keys

Vacate by the correct date or you will be charged extra for overstaying your lease. Make sure to give all keys back and any other items such as garage remote controls and doorbell functionalities by the agreed date.

Violating the rules may cause the owner to have to replace the locks which you would be charged for. If you lost any items or key then tell the property manager as usually this will only be a small charge.
