Bond Cleaning Checklist Before Moving House

Bond cleaning is the final clean you give your rental property before moving out. Clean your place properly and you’ll get back the bond deposit you paid when you first leased the property. Don’t and you lose out. It’s that simple. Without a proper cleaning, you won’t be refunded. That’s why so many people prefer to use professional cleaners to do their final bond clean. They save themselves time and often money as well.

Your home should be spick and span before the new renters arrive; chances are you moved into a spotless house or apartment, only fair that your tenants do as well. We recommend you hire professional cleaners to ensure that your property gets a thorough cleaning, allowing you to focus on the rest of the moving process. Below is the checklist of key areas in your home that need that extra bit of loving:

Living room and bedroom

  • Gently remove and clean all light fitting, remove dust and dead bugs
  • Dust ceiling fan base and blades
  • Wash walls and remove stains.
  • Clean windows, sills, tracks, curtains and blinds
  • Clean light switches and skirting boards
  • Remove covers and dust all vents and vent covers
  • Sweep and mop all hardwood flooring
  • Have your carpets professionally cleaned; keep the paid invoice for your landlord


  • Wipe down the inside and outside of all cabinets
  • Remove and replace any liner if it’s torn or peeling
  • Wipe away grease from oven doors, trays and racks
  • Clean the inside and outside of all remaining appliances
  • Wipe away any grease or food stain from microwave
  • Clean all windows, sills, tracks and screens
  • Wipe down all counters and splash backs with soap and water
  • Clean your sinks and taps. Remove all food residue from your drains
  • Mop the entire floor

Bathroom cleaning

  • Wash the inside and outside of all cupboards, drawers and shelves, removing all scuff marks.
  • Make sure mirrors and windows are free of any streaks.
  • Scrub your shower, bathtub and screens. Be sure to get out all the soap scum build-up and replace shower curtain if necessary.
  • Clean toilet bowl and cistern, as well as the pipes behind.
  • Clean your sinks and faucets. Remove any hair or soap scum from walls.
  • Mop the entire floor. Don’t forget the hard-to-reach corners where a lot of bathroom grime builds up.

Laundry room

  • Clean it thoroughly, especially around the washer and dryer machines. Wash cleaning residue away and remove all lint from filters.
  • Wash the inside and outside of all cupboards, drawers and shelves, removing all scuff marks.
  • Clean behind machines, removing all dust from hoses and connections.
  • Sweep and mop all floors. Residue might be tough to get out, so you may have to hand scrub with a tough sponge.


  • Remove all boxes from your garage or carport, and only leave supplies, tools or items that were there when you first arrived.
  • Remove all dust and cobwebs from the ceiling rafters, walls and shelves using a broom and long duster.
  • Pressure wash the ground to loosen and remove any oil stains.
  • Empty your bins ahead of time so that they are fully empty when inspection begins. Place bins in their correct place.
