Everything you have ever wanted to know about bond cleaning in Australia!
What is bond cleaning?
Bond cleaning or end of lease cleaning is the cleaning which the property manager normally asks for when your rental lease ends and you are moving out.
Without a proper cleaning of your house, or apartment – you will not receive your bond money back from the real estate agents. Getting your bond back can be a really stressful. You have to make sure that the property is returned to the state it was like when you moved in.
You must get the rental cleaned properly – only then can you get your bond back.
Bond cleaning for the kitchen
Normally the kitchen takes a lot of time to clean and therefore can cost more. Any experienced bond cleaning will first check in the kitchen is the oven and the stove range hoods.
Kitchen ovens are usually quite messy internally and they are the first thing that a rental manager will check during after the bond clean. You have to make sure that your oven looks as good as new!
Bond cleaning for the bathroom
Cleaning a bathroom can take time especially if you don’t know what you are dealing with. We have seen bond cleaning inspections rejected because the most minor flaws.
Clean all the toilets – obviously a must! Ensure that there are no streaks on the bathroom mirrors – its an easy thing to spot when the manager inspects the bathroom. Make sure all the taps are cleaned and shiny – along with the sink.
High on the list is to check shower screens for soap scum. You will have to properly remove all the soap scum in your shower screen – sometimes that’s the difference between hiring an experienced cleaner and trying to do it yourself.
Bond cleaning for the bedroom
Cleaning is a tough job for an average end of lease cleaner but a good bond cleaner does a very thorough job in all of your bedrooms for you. The work cleaning the floors could take you days or even weeks. Those types of jobs for us take us a few hours.
We do all of these while you can continue focusing on moving. Preoccupying yourself with cleaning is a huge chunk of time and effort gone. We charge multiple prices example 1 – 2 bedrooms or 2 – 3 bedrooms or more.

How To Clean Your Whole House In An Hour
You can clean an average size house in an hour – but it takes work-and focus! No getting distracted while gathering up those old magazines, or checking your phone for the latest on Facebook. If you keep moving and follow this guide you’ll have that house clean in no time!
Start at the Top
No matter what room you’re cleaning, clean from the top down so that dirt and dust from higher surfaces falls on lower surfaces that haven’t yet been cleaned. Dust ceiling fans, then furniture wiping dirt directly on the floor. Clean all of the floors as your last step to remove the dirt and dust.
(6 minutes per bedroom)
Strip linens and remake beds. When making beds rather than hunch over tucking bottom sheets under the mattress use one hand to lift the corner while tucking the sheet with the other.
Clear all clutter, if you’re in a hurry gather clutter in a spare basket or bin for later organization and tuck out of sight in a closet.
Wipe down furniture with a dusting spray and microfiber cloth, working top to bottom.
(7 minutes per bathroom)
I like to clean all of my bathrooms at once-make a quick trip around all the bathrooms in the house to clear counters and spray counters and tubs with cleaner, allow to sit while you clean toilets and wipe down the outer toilet surface.
Go back and wipe down counters and rinse tub then clean mirrors.
Come back to clean the floors when cleaning the kitchen floor.
Clear all clutter.
Starting in one corner of the room and working around dust all surfaces top to bottom. (If you have blinds and/or ceiling fans, dust those first.)
Use an upholstery attachment and vacuum upholstered furniture.
Vacuum floors along with all house carpeting as last cleaning step.
Load all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and fill sink with hot soapy water. If your stove top has removable burner pieces that need to be cleaned, place in water as well.
Dunk sponge in hot water and squeeze out excess, wipe down cabinets, counters and other surfaces again working top to bottom.
Rinse sponge in hot water as you clean-you’ll be amazed how much dirt comes off!
Wipe down appliances.
Finish cleaning any stove pieces and replace.
Clean floors last along with all hard flooring surfaces in the house.
(15 minutes whole house)
When vacuuming carpeted rooms work your way backwards out of the room moving quickly and without too much overlap to save time.
Vacuum, don’t sweep hard floors-use an attachment to get corners where dust and pet hair can accumulate. This helps prevent kicking dust into the air that will quickly settle again and aggravating allergies.
Steam mops or Hardwood Floor Cleaners also make cleaning hard surfaces much faster than traditional mops, so I highly recommend investing in one of those to keep your cleaning quick!
