If you're a tenant and it's time to move out of your rental, you may be wondering how best to clean your kitchen so you can get your bond back. It is essential to do the job right—a clean kitchen goes beyond wiping away the food bits and mopping the floors. Here are the tasks you may forget about when cleaning your kitchen.
Wipe down all drawers and cupboards with a damp microfiber cloth. Use a multi-purpose cleaner if necessary to remove any oil splatters or greasy residue that may have accumulated over time. Remember, these need to be cleaned inside and out, so pay attention to hard-to-reach places like corners in cupboards and drawers.
Take extra time to deep clean all kitchen appliances—oven, rangehood, dishwasher, etc. For stoves and ovens, thoroughly scrub away any caked-on food particles from burners or racks before scrubbing down other surfaces with a multi-purpose cleaner. Most ovens often require our commercial-grade oven cleaner to remove all built-on grime. Useful tools sometimes used are a blade (only to be used with experience users) and spirinets with gloves. For the rangehood, thoroughly clean the filters for any oil/grime/grease buildup. You will need to run a clean cycle on your dishwasher, give it a heavy clean internally, and don't forget the filters.
It's the small items that often go overlooked! A thorough dusting of skirting boards, de-bugging lights and wiping down power points & light switches is essential for a spotless kitchen that will certainly impress. Don't forget those "forgotten" details - they can make all the difference!
A thorough bond clean is essential when moving out of a rental property, including ensuring that every inch of your kitchen is spotless!
