Frequently Asked Questions

Every property is different, and real estate agents can have different specifications, so vacate cleaning prices also differ. We can provide a quote for the job that takes into account the size of the property, level of cleaning required and what the real estate agent is expecting to see before handing your bond back.

Vacate cleaning is the final clean of a rental property before the real estate inspection. It ensures that the property is returned in its original condition and helps you receive your bond. Vacate cleans differ depending on the property and the requirements of the real estate agents, but commonly include deep cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, removing cobwebs, spot cleaning window treatments, scrubbing walls and doors, mopping and vacuuming. Many people also have windows washed and carpets steam cleaned. Jim’s Cleaning works to the individual’s or real estate agent’s specifications, or we will clean to the industry standard if none are given.

Each clean is different and the time can depend on how large a house is, the condition it was kept in and the requirements of the individual or real estate agent. Our cleaners can provide an estimate when giving a quote.

Yes we do, however, we can only guarantee to the cleaning we have quoted for or to the cleaning we suggest according to the list of cleaning under tenancy agreement.

If you are moving house within the same area as the property you are vacating you will definitely be able to use the same cleaner! However, if you are moving out of the area, check with your cleaner to see if they are able to travel to the new property. If they are not, do not worry, we will have another great cleaner for you!

Many people use the terms vacate cleaning and bond cleaning interchangeably. Technically, however, a bond cleaning is done specifically to meet the requirements to get a bond back, while people conducting a vacate clean may not care about their bond. This means a bond clean can be more detailed, as cleaners work to the specific requirements of the lease agreement. Many real estate agents also look at the condition report that detailed the state of the property on move-in to ensure the final condition is as close as possible to the original condition.

Vacate Cleaning Services

Before you can tackle vacate cleaning, there is so much to take care of when you’re moving house. You have to pack your belongings, get water and electricity switched over and find the best fish and chip shop near your new house. If you’re leaving a rental, you also need to find time to clean the property to the exacting standards of your landlord or real estate agent. This is where Jim’s vacate cleaning can come to the rescue.

The Importance of Vacate Cleaning Services

When you return your keys, landlords and real estate agents expect to find rental properties in the same condition as when you moved in. Although normal wear and tear is expected, if you haven’t cleaned and looked after the property, you may lose your bond. If you leave the property as it is, the cost of cleaning will come out of your bond, and this is often more expensive than if you take care of the necessary cleaning before handing the keys back. A thorough cleaning can also help minimise the appearance of wear and tear, leading to better references in the future.

Real estate agents usually work with a checklist when they do their final inspections, and they may be able to provide that list to you so that you can ensure you meet their standards. Some of the common details agents look for are clean floors, unmarked walls and spotless window treatments. They also expect a deep cleaning of the kitchen and bathroom, including wiping out cupboards and drawers. Professional vacate cleaners are experienced in meeting these standards and knowledge to clean all the unexpected places where real estate agents check for dirt.

Other Areas You May Need to Clean

There may be areas of your home that would benefit from some extra attention. Vacate cleaning does a very thorough job, but our cleaners can offer extra services suited to your specific needs. If the oven hasn’t been cleaned regularly and features baked-on grease and burnt food, an oven cleaning can help get it back up to standard. If your blinds are dirty or damaged, a blind cleaning and repair service can eliminate the need for replacements.

At Jim’s Cleaning, we also have dedicated professionals who can clean your carpets with professional equipment and techniques. This helps protect the property from any damage caused by incorrect cleaning and ensures the best possible results. Don’t ignore the outside areas when preparing to hand over the keys. Jim’s Cleaning has window and pressure cleaning available. This service can leave your windows sparkling and pressure cleaning can also clean stains from the driveway or outside of the house.

Your vacate cleaner can give you advice on which parts of your property need special attention and give you a quote for the entire job. While talking to us, you may want to ask about professional upholstery cleaning, so your furnishings are fresh when you move into your new home.
