Find out how Cleaning Professionals Can Help You With Pre and Post Occupancy Maintenance Work

November 25, 2014 / admin

If you are one of the many folks who are staying in an apartment or renting a house while waiting for the perfect opportunity and/or the perfect house, or perhaps renting an office space for your business, then you may find this article helpful when you finally decide that it’s time to move on to a better place.


Your transaction with the landlord may or may not be the last one that you’ll have with him. Therefore, it’s important to leave a good impression. And even though you believe it’s going to be your last, following the Golden Rule is still the best way to go.

What are we driving at here?

Although it’s not totally your responsibility to keep the rented place completely clean after you vacate it, leaving it at least “broom clean” is the best thing to do.

Plus, don’t forget to do the following as well:

  • Defrost the refrigerator
  • Clean the microwave oven
  • Clean the bathroom and shower
  • At least vacuum all furniture within the premises
  • Clean all eating or cooking utensils, if provided
  • Put all trash in the designated trash bins
  • Turn off all the lights and unplug all electrical sockets
  • Lock the door before leaving

While it is expected that your stay in the property has left its footprint in terms of wear and tear, it is not polite to leave the property damaged.  Depending on your lease agreement, you can have it repaired prior to leaving the place, inform the landlord about the damage and/or discuss the payment terms to cover the necessary repairs.

If you are responsible for doing the repairs and can’t do the repair yourself, you can hire home and office maintenance professionals to do cost estimates to ensure that you get reasonable costs.

Moreover, chances are you might be too busy prepping up your new place to take care of deep cleaning the leased property. Fortunately, there are cleaning professionals who charge a reasonable fee to do the tiresome tasks of cleaning walls, floors, ceilings, kitchen and every room of the rented space.

RPC Cleaning performs pre and post occupancy maintenance works i.e. one off property cleaning on private properties.  Our credibility was built on 35 years of maintaining properties in London. 

Should you need our services, keep in touch with us at telephone number 0208 994 4778. We will be very happy to assist you with the necessary turnover courtesies to your landlord. One of the things that we have learned in this business is to never sever the bridges and end all transactions in bad terms with everyone that we do business with. And, this applies to you as well.
