Many tenants lose their bond at the end of the lease due to improper cleaning techniques. However, don’t let that discourage you since experts are a mere call away. Our office offers an expertise in bond cleaning services. We guarantee that most fastidious real estate agents (or homeowners) will have nothing to criticise regarding the cleaning and sanitation of your home.
What is Bond Cleaning?
As required by law, before your lease ends, you need to have the property properly and thoroughly cleaned. It is also called, exit cleaning or end of lease cleaning. To get your bond back, you need to have the property cleaned and not every tenant is aware of this (especially those who are renting out for the first time). In addition to this, not all tenants provide the level of detail required to pass an exit inspection by the agent / owner.
Before moving out, you need to surrender a perfectly cleaned out property back to the homeowner or the real estate agency as close to (if not perfectly in the same) condition as you initially moved in. Prior to moving in, real estate agents will inspect and have a report of the full condition of the property down the single hook on the wall. And as a tenant, you’re required by law to maintain the conditions of the leased property.
Bond Cleaning Penalty
Failure to clean and restore the property means that your bond will incur deductions depending on the amount of damage or lack of cleanliness of your home. Also, if there are any damages on the property, you’re required to pay for any repairs needed.
How does Bond Cleaning Work?
Bond cleaning is always set by appointment, and regardless of the amount of time given, sometimes DIY home cleaning is just not enough. This is especially true if you’re not sure how they define ‘clean’ in terms of inspection. Usually, bond cleaning requires the following:
- Clean Lights
- Clean Fans & Air Conditioning units including filters
- Skirting boards & tile edges
- Spot Clean marks on walls
- Clean power points & light switches
- Sanitise and clean bathrooms, toilets, and showers

Owners buying a new property & the sellers obligations
Moving into a new house often proves to be a thrilling adventure, even if you are to think only about your neighbors and the new friendships that you can develop. However, there is one aspect which is often neglected by owners, that is the cleaning.
Unless bound by contractual agreement the seller is under no legal obligation to ensure the property is cleaned for the new owner.
The new owner of course is then faced with cleaning the property throughout and prior to unpacking their belongings and stacking the cupboards.
We always suggest that purchasers incorporate contractual terms into the contract of sale to ensure that the property is professionally cleaned prior to settlement, to a bond clean standard. This ensures that the new owner can simply unpack, set up and enjoy their new home.
On the other hand, moving into a newly built house doesn’t guarantee absolute cleanliness as well. Newly built homes are filled with dust, unseen metal shavings and the stuffiness brought about by construction. And as proud owners of a new home, you’d like to have all those little details fixed for you before you step into your new abode. Builders normally provide a builders clean prior to settlement, however sometimes they are not overly detailed.
As you prepare to move into a new house, let us help you with one of the most important chapters for your health and well being; home cleanliness. We will ensure that the house looks brand new before you put your possessions into it. With us, you won’t have to worry about hidden spider webs, dirty carpets, or any other such annoyances.

Facts You Need to Know About The Cleanliness of Your House
- Did you know that 70% of the dust you’re cleaning out are your dead skin cells? Your skin sheds every day, and it takes about two weeks for your entire skin to shed fully. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and all that skin (not to mention dandruff off your scalp) is the biggest reason why you have so much dust to vacuum.
- Mold, mildew, dead roaches, and dust mites all contribute to lowering the quality of the air inside your house. Failure to clean out major areas in your home will result in molds and for dead insects to decompose inside your house. Though we can hardly see them, it can cause allergies, skin and nasal irritation, and even colds.
- Your sink needs to be disinfected daily because it is actually dirtier and has more germs and gunk than our toilet bowl.

Pressure cleaning, also known as pressure washing, involves the use of a high-pressure water spray in order to eliminate dust, grime, loose paint, mud, mold, dirt, chewing gum and more from concrete surfaces, buildings, and vehicles.
Our company offers pressure cleaning services for both commercial and domestic clients. We recommend pressure cleaning for most outdoor areas once renovation is over, vehicles such as cars which have stayed in the open for a long time or old boats. We also recommend pressure washing to concrete buildings affected by graffiti or loose paint.
Pressure cleaning is ideal for both residential customers and businesses. It is used to clean a variety of surfaces, such as roofs, decks, gutters, driveways, patios, sidewalks, parking lots, and cladding. Pressure makes cleaning more efficient, allowing you to get cleaner results in less time.
When do you need pressure cleaning?
Pressure cleaning is often advised when cleaning hard to reach places. These places include cracks between the concrete, grills, creases, and other designs where dust, mildew, molds, and other gunk. These can go and form a mass of nastiness. Pressure cleaning is best done on external portions of the house or a building.
How often should you have pressure cleaning?
This often depends on which areas need cleaning. However, pressure cleaning removes tough dirt and mulch that accumulates over time. And for that reason, you may need to have your surroundings pressure cleaned at least once a year. However, we do recommend the following:
- Vinyl surfaces and sidings: every two years
- Concrete walls and driveway: once a year
- Wooden decks, threshold, pathways, and more: once a year
- Stone or brick walkways and walls: every three years
However, it also depends on various climate zones. Warmer and high humidity climate zones often causes moss, mildew, and more moss to form, which may require you to get pressure cleaning services every after nine months.
Our team of experts in pressure washing can quickly travel to your location and deal with those very hard to clean surfaces. However, it is essential to establish an appointment first by using our phone number or the dedicated Contact form available on the website. Once the appointment is set, it will be very little left unless you will be able to rejoice from extremely clean surfaces once again.
