End of Lease Cleaning

If you’re in the midst of moving, you know how stressful and time consuming it can be. The end of lease cleaning is often the last thing on your mind. However, it is important to leave the home clean, particularly if you’re a tenant so that you can have your bond returned in its entirety.Bliss Home Care | End of Lease Cleaning

In this latest blog we are sharing with you our End of Lease Cleaning Checklist so that you can work your way through each area of the home. It’s no secret, dust, dirt and grime builds up over time in corners, hard to get to areas and under furniture that is often too difficult or heavy to move so the cleaning is best done when the home has been vacated.
