Checklist to prepare for end of lease cleaners


Let’s be honest, the cheap end of Liz Klein is not the easiest deal to find in Australia.  For some tenants, the simplest solution is to roll up your sleeves and do the dirty work yourself when you go out and try to get the bond back. If you’ve been following our blog, you’ve read our Ultimate Moving House checklist, a 6-week guide to help you plan your next move carefully. We continue to provide a single end-to-end lease cleaning checklist to all Australian tenants using our professional cleaners, from your bedroom to bathrooms, kitchens and more.Something is involved.

1-Preparation for cleaning

Before you lift your finger, you will need to do some preparation work to ensure a quick and efficient cleaning day. Follow these tips to set yourself up for success.

 2-Prepare your schedule

A team of two professional lease cleaners will take approximately 2-4 hours to clean a studio apartment, 4-6 hours to clean a three bedroom apartment and a whole day to clean a large house. With so little time left to finish work, many tenants wonder how much work is involved. More often than not, this means hiring last-minute cleaners, or worse, sacrificing a portion of your bond. It is up to you to decide if you are ready for the job, but we always recommend splitting the cleaning into several days.

3-Vacate your house

At This Is Nice Cleaning, we have a “non-furnished” policy to eliminate lease cleaning. Trust us when we say, you will want to go out before you start cleaning.  We recommend this to most tenants because most of the disturbance occurs during the movement, not the actual tenancy. Another major reason for vacuuming your home is that the exhaust cleaning requires a more thorough cleaning than usual. If the furniture is in your way, you will not be able to guarantee that certain areas are 100% clean, for example, under your sofa or under the refrigerator.

4-Get the right tools and supplies.

   The kitchen

By now, your kitchen will need the most cleaning effort. Depending on the use, grease buildup can be mild to severe.  Reducing agents will take an hour to clean the oven alone to work their magic. You will also have tools that need to be cleaned, cupboards that need to be washed, and food stains that need to be cleaned.


If the kitchen requires the most effort to clean, then the bathroom is second to none. Most people prefer to ignore their bathroom, leaving behind soap scum, toilet stains and hard water marks. You may need to use some cleaning products, so be sure to open a window before you start.

   Bedroom, living room and dining room

The layout of the rooms in the house is relatively similar, so you can use this general cleaning checklist for most of them.  If you live in a multi-storey house, don’t forget to explore any of the hallways and stairs.


If you are lucky, your apartment may include a laundry room.  Here’s a quick tip: don’t forget to check the lint filter.

   *Vacuum, sweep, or clean the floor.

  * Clean washer and dryer surfaces.

  * Remove the dryer lint

   *Clean the sink, handle and faucet.


Exterior balconies are common in rooftops and apartments in Sydney. One of our favorite tricks is to use newspapers to wash the balcony screen. This is a great way to get rid of streak free windows which will definitely affect your estate agent.
