|When you end your contract, it is time for final cleaning. In short, it means that after cleaning all surfaces should be clean of stains and ingrained dirt. The final cleaning will not be a big job if you have kept the apartment clean throughout your tenancy. The purpose of this cleaning is not to remove only loose dirt but also any stains and ingrained dirt that has accumulated during your tenancy. If you have not cleaned your apartment regularly and properly, this can take a lot of time, so do not leave the final cleaning until last minute. List of things to notice:|
|Make sure that the walls are clean and without any stains. You can use “magic sponge” to clean the walls. If you notice limescale in your bathroom, clean the walls with acidic cleaning agent and a brush.|

|Brush or vacuum the floors and wipe them with a damp cloth or mop.|
|Empty all the cabinets. Clean all the inner and outer surfaces of the cabinets. Clean the doors and handles.|
|Clean the surfaces and soak the grime if needed.|
