6 Common Areas Most Cleaners Miss during Bonds Clean

Every tenant wants to ensure that their property is left spotless when it comes to end-of-lease or bond cleaning. However, even the most meticulous cleaners can easily miss some areas that need attention.

In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the common areas cleaners miss during bond cleans and how to avoid this.

1. Skirting Boards

Skirting boards often get overlooked during cleaning given they sit at the base of the walls which often are not paid much attention either. However, they’re prone to collecting dust, dirt, and cobwebs. After you have vacuumed the dust with a brush attachment, ensure you use a damp cloth to thoroughly clean the skirting boards. Don’t forget the dirt that accumulates in the corner – use a brush for this. For any hard to remove marks, especially from animals, use cream cleanser or White Magic sponge.

2. Light Switches and Power Outlets

Light switches and power outlets are high-touch areas that can accumulate dirt and grime over time. Use a microfibre cloth or a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean them. Be sure to turn off the power before cleaning the outlets to avoidant possible issues.


3. Door Handles and Knobs

Door handles and knobs are another high-touch area often overlooked during cleaning. They can harbour germs and bacteria, so it’s essential to clean them thoroughly. Use a disinfectant spray to clean them, and pay attention to the areas where the handle meets the door.



4. Window Sills and Tracks

Window sills and tracks also collect large amounts of dust, dirt, and dead insects over time that are often ignored. To clean them, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove any loose debris. Then, use a damp cloth or a window cleaning solution to wipe them down thoroughly. Ensure you remove slider windows in order to clean the whole track.


5. Exhaust Fans

Exhaust fans are often forgotten during cleaning, but they can gather a significant amount of dust and dirt.

To clean them, remove the cover and wash it with warm soapy water. Use warm soapy water to remove any dirt or dust from the fan blades with a wet cloth then dry cloth to collect any residue.

6. Oven Door and Rangehood

The oven door and rangehood are often overlooked during cleaning, but they can accumulate grease and grime easily. Where there are filters, remove these and use a degreasing solution and a sponge to clean them thoroughly. Be sure to remove any once completely dryer.
