Today I could still so clearly remember my two experiences with an end of tenancy cleaning – a task that is getting more and more important and ever more demanding and challenging for an unprofessional. The first time I thought that no matter what others say, I am strong and capable enough to perform such a cleaning by myself. And not only this, but I believed genuinely that I could cope with it in a single weekend only. So after work on Friday I printed one of the checklists used during the inspections, which follow such cleanings. I woke up early the very next day and roll up my sleeves. Everything that happened thereafter I could not so clearly remember. But what I know is that in the late Sunday evening I hadn’t completed all the tasks on the checklists, but I was so miserably exhausted that I simply gave up. Logically, I saw no security deposit and had to face the failure. Years later, I believed I was wiser and way more rational, so when I had to move out, I didn’t wonder even for a second and directly started looking for a cleaning team. In the Chelsea are back then only a few companies offered their services and I had no great choice. However, I didn’t know that making the right choice was so important in this situation. I naively thought that every cleaning team will do the work and I will soon have that money with me and leave the house with pride and joy in the heart. But one more time, that was not the case. The cleaner had done nothing as they should have. They have cleaned just like I did the very first time. The inspector looked at the house suspiciously and one more time I didn’t get that so desired pass.
When you are moving from one home to another, you would certainly be overwhelmed with the amount of organizational and physical work involved in every move. Packing boxes will seem like a piece of cake compared to moving them from one place to another, from a van to the new home, up stairs and down stairs, etc. That is why, if you have a lot of belongings and furniture, the wise thing to do is to hire a professional removal company, which has experience when handling that type of work.
