Research shows that moving into a new house is more stressful than divorce or starting a new job. So, if you’re in the process of moving out of a rental property, you may want to hire professional move-out cleaners to take a little bit of pressure off.
Cleaning a home once you have moved out is almost as stressful as moving itself, and it is something that is very time-consuming, especially of you don’t know what you are doing. Move-out cleaners have a very specific list of tasks that they will need to achieve to ensure the home is spotlessly clean once empty.
Here are 5 solid reasons why you should hire a professional to clean your rental property after moving out.
Return of Your Security Deposit
When you move into a home, you pay a security deposit to the landlord which ensures the home is returned to them in the same (or better) condition than when you moved in. Hiring a move-out cleaner to perform the cleaning task for you when you move out will ensure the security deposit is returned to you in full, to use for your next property.
Stubborn Stains in your carpet
Cleaning can be a challenge on any given day, and quite often stubborn stains in your carpet are left to sit for long periods of time because you simply don’t know how to get rid of them. Hiring a professional vacate cleaner to clean your home is a great way to ensure all the hard to remove stains are eliminated.
Difficult cleaning tasks
Often there are cleaning jobs around the home that are simply just too much for you to do alone. Cleaning an oven is one of the most difficult things to do in your home, because it usually requires harsh chemicals and takes a lot of energy and time to do it right. Glass windows are also very difficult to clean thoroughly without the right tools, a bit of experience and a lot of time. This is one of the best reasons to hire a professional to do the job for you. They have the right tools, and they have the experience to get it right the first time.
Time, or not enough of it
Moving, being as difficult and stressful as it is, requires a lot of your time. If you are already stretched for time around moving, or maybe if you are moving interstate you might not have any time to complete a full vacate clean, so hiring a professional is the best option. It means you will have to spend money, but if your time is running out it will be worth every dollar you spend.
References from Your Landlord
Anyone who rents knows how hard it can be to find a suitable home, with everything you need, in the area that you want. To make it easier to find somewhere to call home, references from previous landlords will usually help the situation. Leaving a spotlessly clean home when you hand the keys back to your landlord will help to get a good reference for future renting opportunities.
As a tenant, you may have to provide references to find a new rental. When your old landlords have positive things to say about you, their words can help you secure a new rental. If you leave your rental sparkling clean, that may help you in the future.
