Moving home is an exciting time, but it can also be extremely stressful. Between deciding what to pack and throw away, arranging removal vans and sorting out any last bits of paperwork for your new property, the moving process can be overwhelming for even the most organised.

If you have been living in rented accommodation and want to ensure your full deposit will be safely returned to you, you will need to make sure your property is left spick and span and just as you found it – if not better than when you originally moved in.

We’ve put together a comprehensive list of everything you will need to clean, from all the jobs you can do yourself to the professional cleaning services you may need to hire in. Our ultimate end-of-tenancy cleaning checklist will help you to deep-clean every room from top to bottom, including those pesky kitchens and bathrooms that can be difficult to get sparkling clean.

Find out more and follow along with our list below.

If you work through our list and tick off all these cleaning tasks, you’ll be sure to get your deposit back in full!
