What to Expect With End-of-Lease Cleaning

Posted on: 8 April 2019

As a construction business owner, you may have several warehouses and other buildings that you lease. As the leases come to an end, you will need end-of-lease cleaning services. If you never used this type of cleaning service, you may not know what to expect. Here are a few of the key aspects of this type of cleaning service that you should know before you hire someone for the job.

Debris Removal

The first stage of end-of-lease cleaning is to survey the property. This survey allows the cleaning service to determine how much debris removal and clean-up is necessary. They will determine and discuss what items need to be removed and what will be required to remove these items. The debris may be leftover construction debris, old carpeting and other items that are not part of the original building at the time you started the lease. The cleaning service will let you know if there are special removal considerations for any of the items.

Building Repairs

One aspect of the cleaning service is to check for any repairs that need to be done on the building. You may have damages to walls, plumbing or carpeting. Ideally, you want to return the building in the same shape you began the lease under. These repairs can be done by industrial and construction-based cleaning services. The repairs will be scheduled in alongside any of the basic services. If the repairs are too intensive, the cleaning service will give you options for the repairs and then step back in to complete the cleaning.

Final Walkthrough

Once the cleaning and debris removal has been completed and all repairs are done, the end-of-lease cleaning service will do a final walkthrough. This final walkthrough will be with you and the cleaning manager. This is to ensure that all cleaning has been done and all repairs are completed. You will sign off on this final walkthrough stating that the cleaning project is completed to your satisfaction. You can then return the building to the owner.

These are just a few of the key points you should know and what to expect during the end-of-lease cleaning process. When you are ready to move forward with the cleaning, contact your local cleaning service. They can schedule a consultation to discuss your options an needs for the service. The cleaning service can also help with pricing and answering questions you have about the process.
