With the pace of the rental market higher than ever, there is a growing demand for cleaning services that can quickly prepare houses and flats for new tenants.

At Roffey Cleaning we work with a number of landlords and letting agents throughout Leigh-on-sea and Essex. Our end of tenancy cleaning service is geared towards tackling the inevitable need for carpets to be properly taken care of. Even in homes which have been well looked after, all kinds of dirt and grime can be soaked up, deep into the carpet. Without a professional clean, it can be almost impossible to achieve that fresh, new home feel. We’ve carried out this service for many years and are able to deliver quick and effective results without cutting corners. Whether you’re a landlord looking to impress prospective tenants with a tidy home, or a renter looking to keep hold of that all important deposit, our end of tenancy cleaning service is what you’ve been looking for.

End of tenancy cleaning that keeps up with the pace

We understand that in the current rental market time is money. For every day a property is empty there is potential rental income being wasted. This means it is vital for properties to be smart and presentable when new tenants are being shown round so they get a great impression and are comfortable making a quick decision. As we have invested in top notch, modern and powerful equipment, we can achieve better results in less time. Our high pressure vacuum system extracts the hot steam and cleaning solution, used to clean deep into the carpet. By removing the vast majority of this mixture straight away, we can leave your carpets, cleaner fresher and drier. We can also deploy commercial grade air movers to give that drying time an extra boost and get you back in business in a matter of hours.

Freshen up furnishings too

If your property has come with furnishings included, these may be in need of a bit of a sprucing up as well. The fabrics of all kinds of furniture, from leather sofas to big soft armchairs, can absorb odours and a surprising amount of dirt and dust. The overall effect, when not professionally taken care of now and again, can be rather unpleasant. So if you are looking to get things back up to the freshness you would expect of a new home, it may be worth having us take a look at these as well. Our specialist equipment, products and processes can make light work of these pieces and drastically improve both their appearance and hygiene.

The benefits of our cleaning expertise

We can combine our end of tenancy cleaning service with our other offerings, so for example if you would like us to clean a rug or tackle some stains whilst carrying out your end of tenancy service just let us know. Likewise, if you’d like us to just pop in and take care of the carpets we’re happy to tailor our work to your requirements.

How long will my carpets take to dry afterwards?

This depends on lots of factors such as the pile density of the carpets being cleaned, the ambient temperature and air humidity, and air flow through the premises. Unlike many companies using underpowered equipment, our vacuum extraction machine has the suction to get your carpets almost dry after cleaning. We will recommend several ways to speed up the final drying stage, but with the heating on and some windows open, most of our customer’s carpets are usually dry within an hour of us leaving. If for any reason we anticipate the drying process to take slightly linger (in unheated or unventilated rooms) we will speed up the drying process with high powered fans and air movers.

What is steam cleaning?

At Roffey Cleaning we have spent many thousands of pounds over the years on our equipment, and the device we normally use for carpet cleaning is our Hot Water Extraction (or steam cleaning) machine.

This machine pumps highly pressurised water deep into the pile, completely rinsing out the cleaning solution that has been agitated into the carpet. This removes unwanted dust, debris and bacteria, providing relief for those of us who suffer from allergies and generally creating a cleaner, safer environment wherever Hot Water Extraction is used.

Hot Water Extraction doesn’t just offer the best deep clean on the market, but it’s also environmentally friendly and very efficient. It won’t expose you to the chemicals that carpet cleaning techniques employed by other companies do, and it will have your carpets dry in rapid time, causing minimum disruption to your home or business. Of course this is equipment that is being used by highly trained and experienced professionals, so we can get the best results for you carpets. We can clean deeper into the carpet to leave them cleaner and fresher which can make a huge difference to your home.

The most common problem you run into with cheaper, DIY-style devices is over-wetting. Rental machines rarely have the vacuum suction power to extract all the water that is absorbed by the carpet. This can lead to unpleasant odours caused by bacterial growth, and when that happens you’ll need to get a professional in as soon as possible to avoid having to shell out for an expensive replacement. At Roffey Cleaning we get the job done properly the first time, and we offer much better value for money than cheaper cleaning companies who use inferior equipment.
