Final cleaning

What you leave behind is what the new tenant will be faced with. The tenant must always carry out a final cleaning before handing the keys back.

After the final cleaning there must be no obvious stains on the apartment surfaces, the cupboards must be clean and the apartment should have a clean smell. The final cleaning will not be a big job if you have kept the apartment clean throughout your tenancy. The purpose of this cleaning is not to remove only loose dirt but also any stains and ingrained dirt that has accumulated during your tenancy. If you have not cleaned your apartment regularly and properly, this can take a lot of time, so don't leave the final cleaning until last minute. The guide for final cleaning has been designed as a checklist for a tenant moving out to list all the things that need to be done.

Remember to make sure that you use clean equipment when cleaning. If you wipe a white table with a dirty cloth, you may end up worse off than when you started.
