When a tenant leaves a property, they are responsible for leaving the property in a condition fit for the next tenant. Most real estate tenancy agreements require the tenant to have the carpets professionally cleaned. But ovens, cupboards, windows and all surfaces must also be left in a the same condition as you accepted when you took over the tenancy, save for fair wear and tear. To ensure that your bond is returned and that you do not end up in a dispute with the agent or landlord,professional cleaning is often the best approach.

A cleaning company will know what is required of the agent and will have all of the machinery, equipment and chemicals to do a professional job. They will go through the property systematically and open every cupboard, clean every surface, clean the oven, stove or cooktop, sweep and mop the hard floor surfaces, vacuum and steam clean the carpets, clean the windows and remove any rubbish. When the cleaners have finished, the property should pass the final inspection and be ready for the next tenant.
