Will this company complete a thorough, hygienic, outstanding clean?
At Premium Clean, we will clean everything inside your property. This includes a thorough cleaning of each room of the property, including the walls, skirting boards, ceilings, doors, door frames and handles, light fittings, fixtures and switches, the oven, hob, fridge, freezer and microwave, polishing of all furniture, vacuuming of all carpets and soft furnishings, removing dust and other allergens and the cleaning of the internal windows (we can also clean the external windows for a small extra fee).
We will also move furniture where possible to clean everything underneath the bed and sofa. We are so sure that you will be happy with the job we have done that we offer a money-back guarantee and will come back free of charge if asked.
What products and machinery do they use?
The company you choose for your end-of-tenancy cleaning must use the correct products. The wrong products can cause damage or discolouration. At Premium Clean, all our staff are highly trained to use the right products, and all of our products are eco-friendly and safe for allergy sufferers, children and pets.
We can provide more details on which type of machinery we use at your request, but we only use top-of-the-range steamers, and we believe our SEBO Automatic X7 ePower 91501GB Upright Vacuum Cleaner is the best on the market.
Does this company have a good reputation?
Reviews are critical as they strongly indicate whether or not the company you are looking at is honest and reliable. Look for what most of the reviews say. Unfortunately, there will most likely always be one or two people who give an outstanding review, so if the majority of the studies are positive, you can generally ignore the bad ones. Please check out Premiums Cleans 5 star, great reviews on Google or any other websites. Our customers are always happy.
Premium Clean is a family-run business that is here for you with any of your cleaning needs, whether it be end-of-tenancy cleaning, carpet cleaning, repair or office cleaning. We work on bank holidays and have a friendly team waiting to take your call and book you in today.
Choosing the right Professional cleaning company, what to look out for, and what should be provided?
Are you looking for a cleaning company you can trust? One that can provide you with the cleaning service you deserve? Isn’t everyone looking for this? We’ll help you determine which cleaning companies are worth your money and time. So, what are the things to look for when choosing a professional end-of-tenancy cleaning company?
When searching for the best end-of-lease cleaners, it’s always important to research before deciding. Professional cleaning companies should always openly have their work on show on their websites or readily available when asked for before and after pictures of their past successful cleaning procedures for new customers to view.
They should have these for each service:
- End of Tenancy Deep Cleaning
- Steam Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
- Removal of Stains from carpets and upholstery
- External windows and so on.
You may find before and after pictures of toilets, ovens and areas that are usually trouble areas. Trouble areas typically cause the most problems when trying to get clean, high-use rooms and high-traffic areas for carpets. As well as showing their work, they should have spaces explaining how they clean and a little about their heritage.
When did their company become well known, and how did it start? How long have they been providing tenancy cleaning services? You must also check whether their professional cleaning team is fully insured.
Fully insured cleaners ensure that if any damages occur during the cleaning, cleans are responsible for fixing them. This is an essential factor to look for. If the cleaners are not fully insured, then any damages will not be covered by the cleaning company, meaning that you will have to repair any damages that might happen during the cleaning.
Now, nearly all professional cleaning companies will have insurance. It’s the best way of telling which cleaning companies are legitimate and trustworthy. You should always call the cleaning company’s central office and speak to the office team. Here, you will be able to ask any questions you may have about the service that they are offering. If hidden charges exist, ensure their final price covers everything you require. Some companies charge extra for certain additional services.
Additional bathrooms, window cleaning or even oven cleaning can come at an additional cost. You won’t have to worry about this when booking with us as we include a complete top-to-bottom clean for your property in our End-of-tenancy cleaning service. We are confident that we can always offer the best end-of-tenancy cleaning service in and around London.
The staff should always be willing to provide end-of-tenancy cleaning tips. Any end-of-tenancy cleaning tips they think you may find useful always present themselves as friendly and helpful. End-of-tenancy cleaning services are very commonly used for rental properties.
When a tenant decides to leave, they must ensure the property is pristine to receive all necessary deposits back. This should be at the top of the cleaning companies’ list when cleaning your home. The end goal should always be that you, the tenant or the landlord can offer that deposit back in full.
Some cleaning companies (like us) provide a guarantee for this. If the property isn’t clean enough on the final inspection and the landlord or tenant isn’t happy, we will return free of charge and re-clean the problem areas. This is something that a trustworthy professional cleaning company should have the confidence to offer.
Once the cleaning has been completed, the landlord will conduct the final inspection. This will include a final cleaning checklist. This is to ensure that no areas have been missed. You can print your final list online to check the cleaning yourself before the cleaners leave. If you can check the cleaning yourself, this can avoid any issues with the landlord later.
So, we’ve discussed what you should look for when trying to find the perfect professional cleaning team. Let’s discuss what you should expect from an end-of-tenancy cleaning service. An end-of-tenancy cleaning service will include cleaning the entire property, every surface from top to bottom.
The cleaning team should explain to you before they arrive what is included and what isn’t. Usually, the only thing that won’t be included in cleaning walls and ceilings, the main reason for this is not to cause any damage to the wall surface and paintwork. These two areas will be dusted and cobwebs removed.
Some additional extras may incur some additional charges. Some companies may include these areas; however, remember that sometimes the cheapest option may not be the most thorough. We offer these other services at a small additional cost. This allows us to provide the best possible cleaning using the best products.
Some of the different cleaning services include Exterior window cleaning, Steam Carpet and upholstery cleaning, Patio and driveway jet washing and many more. You will find that most of the exterior services will come at an additional cost. This is because the end-of-tenancy cleaning service is only required to cover the property’s interior.
Cleaning of the interior of the property will include all surfaces of furniture, sideboards and so on, all light fittings, light shades, light switches, all plug sockets, skirting boards, picture rails, doors, door handles and door frames, sofas and upholstery will be vacuumed, as well as carpets.
All inside and out cupboards will be dusted, disinfected and wiped clean. All appliances will be cleaned and disinfected inside and out. This includes Toasters, kettles, washing machines, ovens, dishwashers, and oven extractor fans.
Bathrooms will be cleaned inside and out of the toilet, sink and bath/ shower. Shower heads will be descaled and shined/polished. Shower screens will be polished, and all watermarks will be removed. No limescale will be left in the bathroom area, and everything, including mirrors, sills, and interior windows, will be cleaned in all property rooms.
Bannisters, decorative items and rubbish bins will be cleaned and emptied; the waste will be disposed of correctly. Every inch of the property should be disinfected and cleaned. There is no excuse for missing areas, so an end-of-tenancy checklist is provided.
All cleaning companies should be willing to ensure that the whole property has been cleaned thoroughly. Once you have found the perfect cleaning company, you will never have to look for another company again.
We pride ourselves on the truth that we can deliver the best cleaning you will ever need in your home. We can’t promise that once you’ve used us as a cleaning company, you will never want to look for another cleaning company, and we hope that you spread the word, as this is how we grow as a business.
