Moving house is rated as one of life’s most stressful events. There is a lot to consider, from safely packing and transporting possessions, to hiring a moving company, to signing a new tenancy contract, to settling into a new community, all while trying to juggle a busy professional and personal life. Simply put, moving house is complicated enough without having to worry about the cleaning as well.

However, it is important to leave your residence totally spic and span when you hand it over to the letting agent as landlords have the right to withhold your security deposit if they are unhappy about the state of the property upon your departure.

Luckily, there are numerous cleaning service providers in the UAE that offer deep, post-move cleanups at affordable prices.

Steam cleaning is one of the most effective sanitizing techniques employed by cleaners in the UAE, particularly for trouble areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Such in-depth cleaning also includes pressure washing of paved areas like balconies and entrance halls, window and door cleaning, machine scrubbing of floor areas, and thorough dusting and polishing of interior spaces.

Cleaning agencies also offer tailored services which allow tenants the option of adding on extras such as oven cleanup, carpet washing or grout steaming, so there’s no need to let any speck of dirt slip through your fingers.
