Moving to a new house is an exciting time where you look forward to designing and decorating your new place for a fresh new start. However, with this excitement comes the hassle and stress of clearing out your old apartment and handing it over to the landlord in its original state. Although you can take care of this aspect yourself, outsourcing handover cleaning in Singapore to a professional company lets you focus on moving into your new apartment.

So what is it and why is it important? What aspects are covered? And what are some of the advantages that you get when you hire handover cleaning services in Singapore? Find out answers to all these questions in the following sections.

Why Is Handover Cleaning Important?

Moving into a new house can be an exciting yet stressful experience. You are excited to set and decorate your new home in a new setting, maybe with some new furniture, upholstery, and curtains etc. But the process of packing up your belongings and moving all the luggage to the new house can become quite daunting at times. The least thing which you would want at that time would be the added stress of handover cleaning and maintenance.

Handover cleaning in Singapore is mandatory when a tenant is about to move out of the apartment.

As part of the rental lease contract with the landlord, you have to leave the house in the exact same state that it was when you moved in. Otherwise, you don’t get your full deposit back. The landlord may refuse to refund the deposit or agree to give a partial refund if he believes that the house is not properly maintained or he notices any minor damage during the final inspection.

Moreover, you would want to leave a nice, clean space for the new tenants before you move out.

Handover Cleaning Checklist

Whether you engage our reliable cleaners or do it yourself, there are some aspects that you must keep in mind. You can ask the landlord for an inspection checklist and make sure you cover all its points to leave the house in good condition. Some of the points that may be included in the checklist are discussed below.

In the case of the living room and bedrooms, You will have to do extensive mopping and dusting of shelves, cupboards, racks, and furniture (if it was already in the apartment). The walls would also need to be cleaned and all holes where wall hangings were hung would need to be sealed and painted.

Extensive cleaning of the kitchen and bathroom is also essential so that all the floor and wall tiles are scrubbed and mopped, shelves cleared and dusted, and the toilet and sink are stain-free.

Some lease agreements may include the clause of shampooing carpets, curtains, and other items that were provided by the landlord. The bottom line is that the house must be returned to the landlord in its original state if you want to receive the full refund of your deposit.
