Moving out of a property and need to keep hold of your deposit? Preparing a property for new tenants and want to make the best possible impression? Sounds like you need an end of tenancy cleaning service…
The London housing and rental market is the busiest in the whole country. Properties can be listed and filled in the same day and deposits of several thousand pounds are taken to secure new lets. It’s vital for tenants to keep hold of as much of their deposit as possible in order to fund their next rental. Meanwhile, landlords also need to ensure their rental properties are filled quickly when a tenant leaves, which means they need clean and presentable properties that impress. Often a key area of disagreement is the cleanliness of the property.
Most rental contracts contain a clause that a property needs to be left in a professionally clean condition in order to receive a full return of the deposit, but many tenants attempt to carry this out themselves. The problem is many tenants do not have the time, skills or equipment to carry out this cleaning to the standards expected by the landlord. It can be far more cost effective to employ a third party cleaning company in this process so that both landlord and tenant can rest easy in the knowledge the job will be done properly and any conflict will be avoided. To address these needs, ABClean offer an end of tenancy cleaning service.
Why it’s better to hire a professional end of tenancy cleaner in London
We often hear horror stories of lost deposits resulting from rental properties that have been left in a poor state. It could be down to dirty carpets, discoloured grouting or dirty skirting boards. It’s especially frustrating for tenants who have tried their best to tidy the property but haven’t been able to do enough to save their deposit. One of the reasons why tenants are rarely able to achieve satisfactory cleaning results is they do not have access to the professional grade tools that a professional clean has. At ABClean we bring all of our own equipment to our end of tenancy cleaning bookings and our equipment is amongst the best available. Consumer grade equipment simply lacks the power and the durability of professional gear. We are able to clean more thoroughly and efficiently, getting better results in far less time than is possible with off the shelf cleaning gear.
Save time as well as money
The turbulence of the London rental market means that moving home is becoming a semi-regular occurrence for many people. It’s never going to become something to look forward to; the packing down of possessions, cherished items and equipment will always be stressful. Knowing that you’ll need to get down on your hands and knees to scrub the floors and skirting boards only makes this process more demanding. You can take some of the pressure off by booking our end of tenancy service. One of the aims of the service is to take some of the stress out of this process by placing less of a burden on your time during your move. The hours saved by booking a professional end of tenancy cleaning service means more time to pack and more time to get comfortable in your new home, as well as saving that valuable deposit for future use.

We understand that for landlords, time is money. Properties need to be occupied quickly and this can be difficult if they have been left in a poor state by the previous tenants. Having been in operation for a number of years, the team at ABClean have developed workflows that are quick, efficient and deliver top quality results without compromise.

Customer service is our top priority so we always go the extra mile, cleaning inside appliances and cupboards as well as out, polishing floors and removing marks where necessary, even dealing with stubborn limescale and grout stains.
