How long does an end of tenancy clean take?

This will of course largely depend on the size of the property and how much work is required (in other words the condition). But a 3 bedroom detached home would typically take the cleaners a full day to complete. The cleaning company can estimate how long the job will take but you don't need to actually be there the full time, so it may be better for them to clean and call you 1 hour before completing, just grant us access and you can relax rather than waiting around.

Will I get my deposit back?

Cleaning companies cannot guarantee fully your deposit back, but we will restore your home with our deep cleaning and we will try. However there are things that are beyond cleaning like holes in the wall or door, burns, breakages and decoration that do not fall under cleaning. Our cleaning results are second to none so we do expect you to get your deposit back for cleaning but permanent damages can fall outside of cleaning. So to summarise cleaners cannot rectify all damage caused during the tenancy so they cannot offer an actual guarantee that you will get your full deposit back.

Does this cleaning price include carpet cleaning?

Good question, Professional Carpet Cleaning is separate from a standard cleaning price, however if you request it for your quotation you will get better value and a combined price. Carpet Cleaning is usually required by the landlord and tenancy agreements so whilst it is not included in the standard price, you will save money by requesting it in advance.

Does your end of tenancy cleaning include the oven?

Yes the oven is included. But What can you expect from our oven cleaning? Our cleaners will clean: the oven racks, the entire interior of the oven, the inside of the oven door, the exterior oven door. We do not use harmful chemicals, and we’ll make sure your oven is spotless. We will work hard to revive your oven, removing any grease and grime that has accumulated over time and loosening any dirt and food scraps that may have escaped. Once we are finished, we will leave your oven looking great and dry.

Are Windows Included?

Internal window cleaning is included in our end of tenancy quote. But if your windows need to be cleaned on the outside this will incur an additional fee. For external windows cleaners do not have the safely access for upper storey windows. So if your windows cannot be cleaned from the inside, you will need to hire a local window cleaner for the external windows.
