Everyone looks to save money when it comes to end of tenancy cleaning. In London, in particular, there are so many providers, the competition is severe and cheap prices are not impossible to find. However, is cheap end of tenancy cleaning always the most cost-effective option?
What’s Cost-Effective EoT
The reason why people book end of tenancy cleaning is to avoid penalty charges and deposit withholding from their letting agency or landlord. Almost any tenancy agreement specifically outlines the requirement for provision of professional EoT cleaning before moving out. It is not uncommon for people to lose huge chunks of their deposit because they dodged the cleaning part. Some tenants decide to cut the cost by doing the job themselves. That usually ends in more financial loss.
So, a cost-effective end of tenancy cleaning, actually allows you to keep your full deposit and avoid unnecessary charges for a reasonable price. How much the service costs will depend on the size of the property, its current condition and the provider you’ve chosen.
What is Included in the Average End of Tenancy Cleaning Service
Different cleaning companies will have different policies when it comes to EoT service. This is why it is so important to speak to the cleaners you want to book before you go ahead with reserving the date and making a payment. On average, the service includes a deep clean of all areas of the property, fridge and freezer cleaning, as well as oven cleaning. It is rare that companies will include carpet cleaning as part of the package. Usually, this is available as an extra service. Some providers will also consider oven cleaning an add-on. Make sure you know all the details before you book.
Risks of Using Cheap Providers
In our desire to get the most-cost effective service possible, we sometimes end up paying more. Being a massive city with numerous opportunities, London will be able to offer cheap end of tenancy cleaning. However, it doesn’t mean it will be cost-effective.
This type of job is extremely complex and requires a lot of knowledge and experience. Lack of training on the use of specific cleaning products and tools can cause severe damages. If you have booked with a reputable company, they are very likely to be providing regular training to their staff. In addition, when accidents happen, they have business insurance that can cover the damages. Cheap provides, however, focus only on the volume of jobs they get and not so much on the quality they achieve. The majority of them are not appropriately insured and bring higher risks to you as the client.
