End of lease cleaning - DIY vs professional cleaners

House cleaning is a challenging chore. Some treat it as a punishment. Some people treat it as a project. Some treat it as a hobby. Others consider it as a source of income.

If you enjoy house cleaning as much as your grandma did when she was younger or back when the only way to keep a home is to wash off every time or sweep off morning, noon and night because no one is going to do it for you, then you are all set to do a DIY cleaning.

If you are the type who schedules house cleaning by room and then forgets about it because the simple thought of doing so is already exhausting, then you are better off, hiring professional house cleaners.

End of lease cleaning is when you prepare the rental space you've called home for a period for the next leasee. It is the must-do end of lease goal that you cannot put on hold because recovering your bond relies heavily on the state of the leased home upon turnover.

Now the question is, do you DIY or hire professionals to do it?

DIY end of lease cleaning is ideal if the leased space is small and you have consistent cleaning habits that have kept your temporary home in pristine condition during your stay.


  • De-stress friendly, take your mind off the worries of moving out with cleaning.
  • Get to know the parts of the house that accumulates too much dirt, and learn what not do in your next home.
  • Master your cleaning skills in no time.
  • Last minute bonding and proper goodbye for your old space.
  • Saves you money.


  • Crazy shopping list of cleaning tools and supplies.
  • Tedious home cleaning research you need to undertake if it’s your first time to do a major cleaning.
  • Can take longer than expected depending on your house cleaning skills and expertise and the number of people helping out in the cleaning.
  • You might end up not cleaning the home properly thinking you are already leaving.

Hiring professional house cleaners is a must for bigger spaces. It's also ideal for those who simply cannot stand cleaning all parts of the home, and those who need more time packing or those who want to get their bond in full.
