Keeping a clean and well-maintained rental property is important for both tenants and landlords. From ensuring smooth transitions between tenancies to creating clean and welcoming homes, the right cleaning solutions are vital for good rental property management.

Whether tenants are moving out or a landlord is preparing their Airbnb for fresh visitors, professional cleaning services can streamline the process and maintain the property’s value and appeal.

How clean should tenants leave a property?

When tenants vacate a rental property, they are generally expected to leave it in a clean and tidy condition. This includes cleaning surfaces, floors, appliances and fixtures so the property is ready for the next occupants.

While some wear and tear is expected, tenants are usually responsible for removing any dirt, stains or mess accumulated during their tenancy. Landlords sometimes provide a cleaning checklist outlining expectations, which may vary depending on the rental agreement and property condition. Rules for Airbnb properties will be different as a cleaning company will complete professional cleans between stays.

Should you hire a professional cleaner when you move out?

While tenants are usually responsible for cleaning a property when moving out, hiring a professional cleaner is a convenient option, especially for those with busy schedules or if you want to ensure a thorough job.

Expert cleaners are equipped with the necessary tools and expertise to deep clean the property, including hard-to-reach spots and tough stains. This can save you time and effort while ensuring that the property meets the cleanliness standards stated in your tenancy agreement.

What cleaning services are there for landlords and Airbnb hosts?

For landlords and Airbnb hosts, maintaining a clean and inviting property will attract good tenants and guests. Various cleaning services cater to rental properties, including regular cleaning, deep cleaning, end-of-tenancy cleaning and turnover cleaning services.

Turnover cleaning is particularly beneficial for Airbnb hosts, involving a thorough clean and preparation of the property between guest stays to maximise occupancy rates. Airbnb cleaners may also include options like managing the laundry of linen and towels, and topping up essential supplies like tea, coffee and toilet roll.

Is end-of-tenancy cleaning worth it?

End-of-lease deep cleans are a great idea, designed to prepare a rental property for new tenants. While some tenants may choose to manage the cleaning themselves, hiring a professional end-of-tenancy cleaning service offers several benefits.

Experienced cleaners will address the specific requirements of rental properties and can ensure the property is cleaned to a high standard, reducing the risk of landlord disputes to help you get your deposit back.
