Cleaning Services

Moving house entails scheduling with a removal company, packing, and notifying everyone about the change, making it a tough and overwhelming process. During this time, the last thing you probably want to worry about is cleaning. That’s where cleaning services come in!

How much should you expect to pay for cleaning services?

If you need cleaning services, you have two options: you can either hire them through a selected removal company or contact directly specialised cleaning firms. Coordinating your cleaning schedule is simpler if you arrange it with your removal company before or immediately after your move.

The different types of cleaning services

Hiring someone to clean your house comes in different forms, and relocation services play a significant role in streamlining the process. These differ in the focus and intensity of the cleaning service. Here we give short explanations for the tasks involved with each cleaning service type.

Regular cleaning

This type of cleaning includes having cleaners come to your home on a regular basis, usually weekly or bi-weekly. They’ll take care of tasks such as sweeping floors and mopping floors, vacuuming carpets, wiping the dust from surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting the bathroom, cleaning kitchen appliances and floors as well as cleaning doors, window frames. 

You are able to specify the areas you want cleaners to tackle, so if you just need help with your kitchen and bathrooms, then you’re covered. Regular cleaning usually has a monthly rate rather than fixed prices of other cleaning services.

Deep cleaning

A deep cleaning is much more thorough and time-consuming than regular cleaning. As such, deep cleaning usually happens once or twice a year. Your kitchen and bathrooms are the rooms that will most likely accumulate dirt, grease, and dust that is difficult to get rid of. For this reason, deep cleaning usually focuses on these areas.

However, that does not mean the cleaners will neglect the rest of your home. Deep cleaning is very thorough and involves a few of the following:

  • Cleaning and polishing of countertops and sinks
  • Removal of any grease and mould
  • Cleaning and dusting of cupboards, drawers, and cabinets
  • Descaling of ceramic basins, showers, and toilets
  • Cleaning and sanitisation of floors
  • Vacuuming and dusting rooms

Carpet cleaning

Carpet cleaning is essential for removing odours, hair, allergens, and tough stains, particularly after moving into a new home. Hot water extraction, which is frequently mistaken for steam cleaning, is a recommended technique. It entails spraying hot water and detergent on the carpet and extracting dirt.

Dry carpet cleaning, which uses “very low moisture” systems, has a faster drying time and is more efficient. It employs dry compounds and cleaning solutions, with pretreatments for tough stains. Although dry cleaning is more expensive, it is gentler on carpets than wet cleaning.

End of tenancy cleaning

What is the end of tenancy cleaning?

End of tenancy cleaning is a deep cleaning of a home or apartment before new tenants move in. Professional cleaners will clean the empty property to make sure it is ready for the new tenant. It can be requested either by the landlord or the old tenants in order to get their deposit back.

Professional cleaners will clean the empty property to ensure it is ready for the new tenants. End of tenancy cleaning is similar to a deep clean in that it requires the property to be spotless and almost brand new as they’ll go through most of the similar.

Benefits of hiring cleaning services

Hand over a clean property

The biggest advantage of cleaning services is that you can hand over a spotless home to your landlord after your removals. It is a gesture of kindness to the new homeowners; a clean and empty house is always welcome during the stress of relocating. It also ensures that you get your deposit back in full from your landlord.

Get your new home ready

Hiring cleaning professionals is not only helpful for your old home. They can also ensure that your new home is ready for you. If you’re moving to a different property, cleaning services will carefully clean your new home, removing dust and dirt from the building process. You’ll get the fresh start that you deserve.

Save time and hassle

When you are getting ready for a move, you’ll be pressed for time. The lack of time means you won’t be able to be as thorough in your cleaning as you would wish. After you have received your move dates from your moving company, you can schedule a cleaning service for your new home shortly after or before your move.

Remove stress from your move

With professional cleaning services, you’ll have one less thing to worry about. Leaving the dirty business of cleaning to professionals means you have more time for packing, scheduling, and other tasks. So you do not have to worry about last-minute cleaning the floors and wiping the surfaces; leave it to the professionals.

Save 40% on cleaning, as well as your entire move

Looking for a moving company that offers cleaning services is difficult. Instead of going through your list of companies one by one, ask multiple businesses at once. It’ll save you time and money—by comparing prices, you’ll find the best deal that matches your needs. You’ll receive up to 6 moving quotes at a time, with a special request of cleaning services included.
