When it comes to end of lease cleaning it can often be a stressful task making sure that everything has been done right in order to breeze through the last inspection. From creating a checklist to outsourcing to an office cleaning service, we’ve got a list of tips to make end of lease cleaning less stressful and ensure you satisfy the fussiest of critics.
Create a checklist of everything that needs to be done
It may seem obvious, but we often forget to create a check list of all of the cleaning tasks and small handyman jobs that need to be done. Ask other staff members if they notice anything that may need repairing or fixing, such as re-attaching a door knob that has unscrewed itself. By getting on top of the little things, it will be easier to tackle the bigger jobs.
It’s also good to list all of the big jobs that need to be done, and something you can refer to when employing a cleaning service.
Give yourself enough time
Plan out how the cleaning will be done. Give yourself plenty of time in case furniture needs to be moved in order to clean carpets. Leaving it to the last minute can be very stressful.
Outsource the cleaning
Professional cleaners employee trained staff that know what is required to make any office sparkle. This takes the stress off you and the other staff. Just make sure you outsource the cleaning to the right company, who is professional and will do all of the cleaning tasks you need done. This could be everything from window cleaning to carpet cleaning and everything in between.
Outsource your cleaning to the right company
When looking for the right commercial cleaning service to meet your office cleaning needs, it is important that you look at the services they offer and how professional they are. You want to be confident that once they have done their job, your office will sparkle. You don’t want the hassle of having to have things cleaned twice either.
It is a good idea to employ a company that will do all of the tasks that you require. For instance, some cleaning companies do general cleaning and carpets, but not window cleaning. It is easier and more practical to employ a company who can meet all of your needs rather than employing several cleaning services to complete different cleaning tasks.
Make sure all of the big cleaning tasks are done
Use the check list you have created initially to go over the office with a fine tooth comb. Check that all of the tasks you outlined as needing to be done have been completed, and you are satisfied with the job that the cleaning company has done.
End of lease cleaning doesn’t have to be a stressful task. With a bit of planning and getting the right people in for the job, you should be able to please the fussiest of critics with ease.
