Moving is bittersweet – you’re saying goodbye to a home you’ve filled with love and memories, but you’re starting a new chapter of your life. It’s exciting, but it’s also stressful because there is a lot of work to do to get you where you’re going. Sadly, the end-of-lease clean is just as much a part of life as moving.
End of Lease Cleaning Tips
Everybody knows how nitpicky the end-of-lease clean can be, which is why it’s important you get it right to make sure you get your bond back in full.
You could hire a professional cleaning company, but you don’t need to! Make sure you visit the bathroom and laundry to clean mirrors, the shower and bath, the toilet, basin, wall tiles, and taps. Work from top to bottom, so start with ceiling fans and move your way down. The final job should be the floor. Be sure you wipe the AC unit, clean the filters, have your carpets cleaned as per your lease agreement, clear your cupboards and drawers and wipe them down. Get all of your ceiling fans, and dust the ceiling for cobwebs.
Remove fly screens, wash them, and replace them. Wipe all of the window ledges, lights, walls, windows, and skirting boards. Be sure to clean inside and out of appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines. Be sure to clean the fridge out. And clean the outdoor areas as well, such as oil stains in the driveway and garage, the patio, pool, bins, and garden work.
Now you know all the typical tips – what about all of the rubbish you have on your hands? Before you can think about your new home, you have to deal with the old one. But the better you know your new space, the more ruthless you can be in getting rid of furniture, white goods, and other possessions you may want to downsize. You can recycle as much as possible, of course, but what about the rest? And how do you get the recycling to where it needs to go?
What To Do With The Items You No Longer Need
From computers and tablets to televisions and gadgets, moving tends to turn up loads of old electronics. If you’re not using a rubbish removal company, you will need to check with your local disposal sites to find out whether they recycle electronics.
- White Goods
A rubbish removal company can remove your white goods, whether it’s an oven, fridge, dishwasher or otherwise. But if you’re doing it yourself, make sure you take them to the correct recycling centre. Or, contact your council for a special collection, but it’s important to keep in mind that you will need to book this well in advance of your moving date.
If you have old couches, tables, chairs or other furniture that’s still in good condition, you can donate it to your local op shop. You could also give it away to up-cyclers or sell it on the web. Alternatively, a furniture rubbish removal company can take it to the correct disposal site or recycling centre.
- Garden Waste
If it’s green, it’s easy enough to recycle, but if it’s concrete, stones or rubble, things are a bit more complicated. It will need to go to the dump, but you have to do the backbreaking work first, unless, of course, you hire a green waste professional to handle it for you.
Rubbish is all-encompassing for anything that doesn’t fall under the rest of the categories, whether it’s old newspapers and magazines or plastics, timber, and kitchenware. This can go straight to the dump if it’s not recyclable, but a reliable Sydney rubbish removal company can also dispose of it for you.
The Benefits of Using Rubbish Removal Professionals
- Quick and Efficient
The professionals know what can and can’t be recycled, so there’s no need to worry about the details when you can let the experts take the lead.
- No Heavy Lifting
Forget sore knees and aching backs, the professionals can handle all the heavy lifting. Rubbish removal companies will take away all of your rubbish, load it into the van, and cart it away.
If you have heaps of rubbish to ditch, it costs money to make multiple trips to and from all the different recycling centres. It also takes time and energy, which are always in short supply. And in many cases, it requires a rental trailer or van to deal with the amount of rubbish you need to remove. It’s much safer and cheaper to let the professionals handle it from the outset.
