Find out if the Remora end of tenancy clean is the right option for you

An end of tenancy clean takes the guesswork out of leaving a property. By ensuring you have a receipt confirming to your landlord or inventory clerk that you’ve taken the necessary steps to leave the property in tip top condition, you’ll feel reassured whilst also guaranteeing you comply with your assured shorthold tenancy agreement (ASTs). The bottom line? You’re giving yourself the best possible chance of a full return on your deposit. 

As such, the decision to opt for an end of tenancy clean is an easy one. But you’ve still got to navigate the process of having a team drop in to give your home a thorough once over which can be an unsettling thought if you don’t know what to expect. Far from having vast numbers of strangers traipsing through your home, the Remora end of tenancy cleaning service is a swift, professional and friendly one which will turn around your property in next to no time. 

What do we do?

The Remora team will head over to your property, where you can either be waiting to let them in or you can arrange to have the keys collected prior to the cleaning date so that we can work while you get on with your day.
