End of Lease Cleaning Checklist
Room by Room
Hallway and stairs
In most properties, the hallway and stairs are the first areas you enter once you open the front door, so it is crucial that they look impeccable to the owner. As always, it is advisable to start from the top (the ceiling) and proceed to the floor, carefully scanning the room for any problems that may need rectification. For example, if there are stains on the carpet or if you need to change a light bulb, be sure to order this before the landlord arrives to inspect the property.
First, be sure to remove all cobwebs and dust from the hallway and stairs, even in hard-to-reach areas, as this can hinder your chances of recovering your landlord’s deposit. Don’t forget to scrub your skirting boards, to remove any dirt or dust that may have appeared over time due to general use.
Depending on the floor in your hallway and stairs, you should vacuum over the area and use a mop with warm water and dishwasher liquid on wood floors. As mentioned earlier, this should be the last job on your list, otherwise, you may have to wash floors multiple times.

Second, just like you would in the bathroom, wash and polish the taps and sink, removing any lime in the process. If necessary, you can pick up drain blockers from any supermarket to unclog your sink, or pour a pot of boiling water down the drain, followed by half a cup of baking soda, let it sit for a few minutes before adding a mixture of vinegar and Hot water.
Next, remove all the items from the drawers and cabinets and give them a good scrub. This also involves cleaning the interior of cabinets and drawers and removing any pieces of dirt, such as food or dust. The same goes for any tile around food preparation areas, such as the plate or the typical place to cut food.
Any area that has been in direct contact with food, such as freezers, refrigerators, microwaves, glass ceramic and oven. The hob and oven can be particularly dirty and may require a little grease on your elbow, so make sure you have the right tools to tackle it. Make sure each appliance is spotless and looks like new, even the containers should be kept clean and shiny.
