What can I expect to be done?

For an end-of-lease / bond clean, you can expect that everything required to get your bond back (in terms of cleaning) will be attended to. With our 10 years of experience, we are well aware of the expectations of property managers. You can be sure that they will be impressed with the state of cleanliness that you present the property back to them if you engage our services.

We provide general cleaning, window cleaning, and carpet cleaning. We can also take care of any gardening and rubbish removal needs.
General cleaning includes:

  • A full kitchen clean including oven, stove, and range hood
  • Full bathroom cleaning including shower screens and tiles
  • Laundry cleaning
  • Dusting and cobweb removal
  • Cleaning of walls, skirting boards, doors, architraves, light switches, light fittings, exhaust fans, ceiling fans, air-conditioning vents, and window tracks
  • Sweeping out of the garage  
  • Vacuuming and washing floors

For a full and detailed list of what is included in an end-of-lease / bond clean, please visit our services page.

For Post-Sale cleaning you may not need a clean as thorough as a bond clean. Your cleaning needs can be discussed prior to us attending the property and we can tailor a clean to suit you.

For Pre-Sale cleaning, we recommend cleaning light fittings, windows and carpet cleaning. It’s amazing the difference cleaning those three things can make to the appearance of your property! Any of our services can be included in a Pre-Sale clean. Let us know your needs, or we can advise you.

To what standard can I expect the cleaning to be done?

Ballarat Vacate Cleaners will always clean to a high standard. Our business is built on our reputation, our positive reviews and word-of-mouth advertising. Providing an exceptional service every time is paramount to our business and our future.


Do I need to have moved out before I get an end-of-lease / bond clean done?

When providing you with a full vacate / end-of-lease / bond clean or carpet cleaning, it is necessary to have the property empty before we come to clean.

If you are not getting a full vacate clean, as long as the areas involved are empty or clear, then that is sufficient. For example if we are only cleaning the carpet, or the bathrooms.


How long will the cleaning take to do?

Of course it depends on how much work there is to be done. Generally though, we need 2 hours for carpet cleaning and half or a whole day for a full vacate clean, depending on the size of the property.


How many cleaners will attend the property?

There will be between 1 and 3 cleaners present.


How do I pay?

Payment needs to be received on completion of the work. We accept cash, or an electronic bank transfer. With an electronic bank transfer, we must be provided or shown a copy of the receipt of transfer on completion of the work.


What if the real estate agent isn’t happy?

On the very rare occurrence that the real estate agent isn't happy with our cleaning (the cleaning that we agreed to and then were paid to do), we will return to the property to rectify any issues.


What if I’m not happy with the cleaning?

We will always make sure you are happy with the cleaning before issuing you with an invoice and accepting payment. If you cannot view the property on completion of the work and later find anything (the cleaning that we agreed to and then were paid to do) that you are unhappy with, we will return to the property to rectify any issues.


What if I need to change or cancel my booking?

If you need to change your booking date or time, please contact us as soon as possible and we will do our best to accommodate you.


If you need to cancel, please be kind and call us as soon as possible on 0448 200 684.
