End-of-lease cleaning checklist

End-of-lease cleaning is one of those things that can sound like a chore. But it’s very important that it is handled correctly by an experienced cleaner. Your end-of-lease clean will affect your bond, and perhaps even your reputation as a business.An office or a commercial space should be left neat and tidy, in the same condition as when you moved in. If you have been in your office for a while, there will be spots that may never have seen the light of day until you move that filing cabinet or desk! There could be indents on the carpets, marks on the wall, and grit at the back of cupboards.

Experience can save you money on your end-of-lease clean

It’s true having regular office cleaning in place will reduce the amount of mess when you leave. But you will also need an experienced end-of-lease cleaner to ensure all the details that landlords and real estate agents look for are checked off properly.Most leases allow for a fair amount of wear and tear. But even so, your old office needs to be cleaned correctly at the end of your lease. We recommend:
  • All surfaces should be wiped down, including the walls, windows, windowsills, ledges, skirting boards, window tracks, and roller doors.
  • Check and remove dust and spider webs from all corners of the office, plus any outdoor areas.
  • Spot clean stubborn marks from the walls and floors.
  • All cupboards and drawers should be emptied. The front and the inside of them should be wiped too.
  • All touch points such as light switches, door handles, etc are wiped and cleaned. Any lights that don’t work should be replaced with new ones.
  • All areas of the floor should be vacuumed. Hard floors should then be mopped, and any carpets should be steam cleaned.
  • If your space had a sink, make sure the drain is clear of food scraps and clean the taps and faucet.
  • If your space had a fridge, pull it out from the wall to clean the walls and floor it was on.
  • If your space had a fan be sure to clean the surfaces of the fan blades.
  • If your space has an air conditioner make sure to remove the dust from it.
  • Remove curtains and clean them before putting them back.
  • Any flyscreens should be taken out to be washed before being reinserted.
  • Any excess rubbish should be removed.
