You are moving out from your rented house again. And with the time you somehow got used to it. Now the packing and transporting of all your stuff, the end of tenancy cleaning, the inspection are all just as random as your work, your projects, and your million tasks every day. When you left your first rented house, you were young and naïve and you were even kind of scared by this entire process. Now you are thinking of it as one of your work projects and the only difference is that you hate it. It is too much work and too much pressure. At the end of the day you are stressed and angry and you are going mad. For all these years you still haven’t learnt to organize this thing right and you are suffering now one more time. But there is a solution. There is something that could make you more organized without telling you what to do (who likes to be told what to do, for God sake) and without making you feel guilty at any point.
Try finding the answers of these questions before the post tenancy cleaning and you will notice the change on the instant.
When is the professional cleaning team arriving?
Well, you better plan the things properly. The cleaning team doesn’t have to arrive too early, as you will have to live in this house for some time thereafter and you will make it dirty again. You should not arrange an appointment for the last minute, as well, as something may go wrong and you better not risk it.
Have I emptied everything?
One of the things all professional cleaning teams require is that every appliance, every cupboard and drawer, and every wardrobe is empty. Otherwise they will either have to empty those themselves, which is clearly not their job, or they will have to just not clean them, which you surely don’t want.
Is the electricity functioning properly and is there warm water?
The first thing I believe is too random and is no problem for anybody. However, as you are leaving you may have no warm water, which could make the cleaning much harder for the professionals. And it would be more
than ridiculous if they cannot perform what they came for because of you. That is why you better think of these, as well.
When is the transporting team coming?
One of the most common mistakes is the wrong organization of post tenancy cleaning and transportation. Well, it makes no sense to arrange a cleaning before you have taken all the boxes away, so be careful.
Is the post tenancy cleaning inspection confirmed?
Do you know exactly when the inspector is coming? Well, you better do. Too often there are cases when in the hustle and bustle the renters misunderstand when the inspection will take place and unexpected surprises spoil everything. That is why you better double check everything.
