I need a house vacate cleaning in Ashfield to tidy up for my friends. This is how one man started his email to us back in May. He had moved back to Perth where he had been working over the past 18 months. His colleagues had asked him to come and fill in for a few days on job transfer. The move would free him up for some me time.
So he packed his bags and made the 1 hour drive down to Perth to begin a new life in Perth. Well, it turned out that his friends were his new house-mates. The house was still in a state of good repair but needed a bit of tlc. To his horror, when he arrived at the end of his 1 hour drive home, his home was dirty, dusty and very uninviting. The house looked more like a baggar household squat than an apartment!
He had decided on taking a small job that required minimal house vacate cleaning in Ashfield (because he had signed up for the job as a no-claims employee). This would not take much of a toll on his bank account, because he would be working off my schedule. He was excited about starting his new life in Perth. But what would happen once he got his house clean?
I think I am going to call the house-cleaning company and see if they will come out and do a quick property scan of the place, he said. Then I will have a better idea of what needs to be done next. Apparently his rental vacate cleaner in Ashfield client wanted the entire carpeted house cleaned at the same time. So, I will see what I can do.
The next morning he was shocked when his hired carpet cleaner told him that all the carpets were totally cleaned. The first thing I thought of was, 'Are you sure?
' Then I thought, 'Why wouldn't they just scan them and send them back to the manufacturer?
' But no, it was all good - the property scan went through and he was happy to see all the problems with the carpeted area.
So what next? he said. We need to get our hands on the keys to the next property. The property scan showed several signs of damage - the carpet was faded, dirty, stained and so on. There were also many obvious signs that someone had been there: the furniture was ruined (he couldn't remember why exactly) and the floors were badly scratched.
However, if you live in Ashfield they don't bother. They like the quiet. It's only natural - no one wants to disturb a new resident and tell them that they're about to be evicted. But still the local council asked him to look into the problem.
When I told him the property scan he laughed. I told you it wasn't going to happen. I'd seen it coming. You'd better call the housekeeping company.
I asked what he did when he noticed the damage to the carpets - he called the carpet cleaning company. I asked why - he said they had been doing their own house vacate cleaning in Ashfield on the same street as his own. Why? Because they understood how serious the problem was. And he didn't want to send his staff out on the same day they were doing the job.
Anyway, he told me the next time he hired a company to clean his property he would take the same property scan with them. He said he didn't think it was worth it. Apparently the company did pick up on some serious signs of damage but didn't make any recommendations for covering them up - that is all. He did recommend getting the home secured before the job started - which meant he could take it back later when he felt it necessary.
My take on this whole situation is this. If your property has ongoing problems with damp, smells, mold and mildew, and you don't have a professional house vacate cleaning company in Ashfield doing the work, then it might be worth considering having one come in and do an annual property scan to find the problems. You may not be able to see it on the surface but on an annual basis you will be able to see what is going on underneath. The scans are often free (because your property needs to be maintained) and you should always contact your local council and ask if they offer them. They usually advertise this service here in Local Perth Cleaning at www.endofleasecleaningpertharea.com.au and have the contact details for all local councils.
