Move Out Cleaning Checklist

Moving out? Need help tackling exhaustive cleaning duties? 

Few people can go about a full-scale house clean without at least preparing a plan first. Aside from ensuring you have all the essential cleaning tools, products and equipment on hand, it pays to follow a checklist if you’re wanting to make 100% certain that you’re covering every aspect of the house and leaving your property spick and span. This is especially vital if you’re a tenant hoping to get your bond back at the end of your lease agreement. 

Fortunately, we’ve compiled an essential moving out cleaning checklist below to help you move from room to room in your rental more smoothly. Remember; before commencing, make sure that you remove as much furniture as possible so that you can avoid having to clean up additional mess later on!
