7 Reasons Why Hiring End of Rental Cleaning Actually Saves You Money – Moving is exhausting, time-consuming, and tedious. Still, most people believe they will save money by cleaning the home themselves. This, however, is a common misunderstanding. Here, I will give you 7 reasons why hiring end of rental cleaning will save you money, and so much more!
Have you bought a bottle of disinfectant or bleach lately? It isn’t cheap. Be prepared to spend quite a bit of money on cleaning supplies before you begin this task.
When hiring a professional cleaning crew to clean your rental for you, they bring their own supplies. Everything is included in the price of cleaning the property for you.
Most people, at the end of a lease, actually take time off to clean. Why? This isn’t the type of cleaning that gets done quickly in one afternoon. Rather than losing the money, you might make in a day’s work, why not allow the professionals getting paid, to clean it for you?
Your landlord can decide you did not clean the property up to his/her standards at any time. This also means he can withhold some or all of your deposit until he sees fit to give it to you. If ever. A security deposit is a large sum of money that you pay when entering into a new lease that allows the landlord to feel safe you will not damage the property.
It is also something most average people truly depend on getting back when they decide to move.
The cost of hiring a professional cleaner will be significantly less than having any number of dollars withheld by the landlord at his discretion. It will be very hard, if not impossible, for him to complain about the job done by a paid professional.
Your image as a renter follows you everywhere. Every time you try to enter into a new lease you are asked to fill out an application. The people you plan to rent from know what they’re doing. In an effort to protect themselves, they will seek information from your previous landlords. If you want to leave a good impression, hire a professional to clean when you leave.
A negative reputation can cost you money. If your landlord is not happy with the job you did cleaning the property at the end of your lease, he will not hesitate to broadcast that information to other landlords you may seek to rent from. This can cause you to be denied a rental. You may even have to pay a higher deposit because you are a ‘high-risk tenant’.
Cleaning supplies are one thing. But, have you factored in shampooing rugs, stain removers, vacuums? Household wear and tear is always greater than what meets the eye. It isn’t until the furniture is moved, that the dust, stains, and damage may begin to present themselves. Again, here is where a cleaning crew will save, not cost, money.
Imagine, you do the job yourself. You are exhausted, your pockets are empty, and now the landlord wants you to go back and do it again. But wait, can he do that? Oh yes, he can! Having to go back and do the job again is just more cost and time spent on something that would have been done right the first time by a professional.
Overall, the cost of cleaning your rental property when you leave is significantly higher if you try to take on the job yourself. For a job done competently, professionally, and quickly. What more is there to say? Pay someone to clean your rental, and save more money!
