What is Bond Cleaning / End of Lease Cleaning ?


“Things Only Professional Cleaners Like CleanWee Know”
Bond Cleaning may be a hectic task always. No matter how clean is your house your owner or property manager will always find one way or other to keep your bond. So why not get Cleaning tips and hacks from CleanWee?

What is a Bond Cleaning/ Exit Cleaning ?

The Definition -
When you rent a property in Australia, you pay some amount of money to the landlord or property manager which is referred to a bond. When you vacate the property, you have to return the property in the same condition without any breakage and ensure that the property is neat and clean.
This kind of cleaning is known as End of lease cleaning or Bond Cleaning, which is done to get the Bond back.

Why is Bond Cleaning Important to Tenant?

The tenant who does not vacate the property in neat and clean condition may lose the bond. After the landlord/ Property Manager inspects the property and clears the house then whole amount of bond is returned to the tenant otherwise they may cut a small or whole amount depending upon the house condition.
If you get your bond-back you can use it to buy interesting stuff for yourself, rent another property or spend as you require. However, if you leave your property messy, which will eventually create trouble for the property owner, you may not get any money sadly. More importantly, he may cause more trouble for you.
Suppose now you want to rent another property, you will have to provide reference of your previous property owner. He may give bad report to him and you will now face difficulty in renting the property henceforth.

Why is Bond Cleaning Important to Future Tenant?


When a tenant leaves the property uncleaned or in poor shape, it may have the impact on future tenants. The first impression a person gets of a property is how neat and clean the property is ? How neat and dirt-free are the carpets? Is the kitchen clean? Are there any pests in the house/premises? Many such things are considered when a tenant consider renting a property.
Now suppose, when the house is dirty, but has many features, nobody will rent such property. Therefore, it is extremely important that the property be in perfect condition.

Why is Bond Cleaning Important to House Owner/ Landlord?


The owner of a property always want that property is in perfectly clean and is in good shape when left by the tenants. This helps build trust of the owners for the future tenants as well.
If the property is not cleaned, the landlord/ owner will have to get it cleaned which may frustrate him and impact the owner-tenant relation.
