When you reach the end of your lease on a property and begin preparing for the all-important inspection—the one that will determine whether or not you get your back your full bond, which typically represents a full four weeks of rent—professional carpet cleaning is highly recommended.
We know that when it’s time to move, you have a million things on your mind. Frankly, it’s not a process anyone really looks forward to, least of all dealing with the property inspection that comes with moving out. A deep, professional cleaning of the carpet can actually ease the process by helping to ensure the property you’re vacating is in tip-top shape when you leave in order to maximize your chances of getting your full bond money back.
Chances are, no matter how long you’ve lived in the property, you probably have not hired a professional carpet cleaner during that time. After all, you’re not the owner, and it might seem like an unnecessary investment for a rental. But if that’s the case, now is the time: Your landlord will be looking for any reason to withhold some or all of your bond, and even minor carpet stains make an easy culprit. And no matter how often you’ve vacuumed, it’s impossible to truly clean all the ground-in dust, dirt, pet hair and other debris that’s accumulated over time by vacuuming alone. With professional carpet cleaning, however, the carpet in your rental house or apartment is going to look not only cleaner but brighter and more like new, making entire rooms feel and smell cleaner and fresher.
Though we can arrange it for any time, it might be easiest on you to make bond carpet cleaning the last step as you move out—after you’ve moved all of your belongings and done the rest of the thorough cleaning you’ll want to perform prior to inspection. That way we can get in and out quickly without interrupting your routine—and, most importantly, you won’t have to worry about any new stains or dirt build-up occurring after the cleaning. And our technicians are well trained with the best equipment and cleaners available to deep clean carpet safely and effectively.
Your landlord likely hasn’t made professional carpet cleaning a condition of getting back your bond, but you’d be amazed the difference it makes in the message it sends about how well you’ve cared for the space.
