What is the Clean Up about?
Through our research we’ve discovered that not everyone has the same idea of ‘clean’ or even ‘professionally clean’.
The Clean Up video and booklet have been created to help set and industry standard in cleaning, with a view to reducing disputes over cleaning issues either at the beginning or end of a tenancy. (The Dispute Service put cleaning issues at 60% of all the disputes they deal with www.thedisputeservice.com).
The Clean Up video and booklet both contain step-by-step instructions on how to clean every room in a house – to a professional standard.
The aim is that all parties involved in a letting agreement (landlords, tenants, agents, inventory clerks, cleaning companies) watch the CTPW video (have a copy of the booklet to hand) and agree to that standard of cleaning either when leaving a property or when letting a property – even as a reminder of how the property should be looked after during a rental period.
We see it as becoming an integral part of the inventory process and an important tool to help all parties realize what is expected of them at every stage of a letting agreement.

Why is the Clean Up video good for tenants?
Everyone’s version of ‘clean’ is different and for tenants it’s often difficult to know quite how high a cleaning standard is needed to get 100% of their deposit back.

Why is the Clean Up video good for inventory clerks?
Inventory clerks are at the front line when it comes to signing off on how clean a property is.

The Clean Up video and booklet are a great tool for training and can also be provide to tenants at check in, to show how the property has been cleaned by the landlord and even as a gentle reminder post check out.

Like any industry, professional cleaning companies vary in quality and in what they offer. The Clean Up video and booklet are a good way of agents, landlords, and even tenants showing their chosen cleaners exactly what they need on checkout.

What if I don’t agree with something in the Clean Up video?
Clean Up video is only a guide to what we believe is the highest standard of cleaning needed. If you wish to add your own terms in to a contract (landlords/agents) you are perfectly within your rights to do so, as you would add any terms for your tenants to comply with. For example you may wish to state that even though the video has shown the soft furnishings being cleaned, you may wish to deal with this yourself or you might suggest a particular product that you’d like to provide to your tenants for cleaning the floor for example.
