Your first step in getting your bond back is to gather the supplies you’ll need for cleaning and create a plan of action. Get a bucket, cleaning cloths, a mop, and any cleaning products you’ll need.

Remember to double-check everything when you’re done. Once you’ve finished, you’ll have a clean house that will help you get your bond back.
Start With the Kitchen
Start by beginning with the kitchen. Empty cupboards and drawers, and throw away expired items and anything you don’t need or use. Use a disinfectant spray to wipe clean all surfaces. Scrub the inside and outside of the refrigerator, stove, and microwave. Clean the sink and countertops, and remember to wipe the backsplash. Vacuum and mop the floors, and remember to clean the inside of the oven.
Tackle the Bathroom
Next, tackle the bathroom by scrubbing the tub, sink, and toilet. Use a cleaner designed to remove soap scum and mildew. Pay attention to grout and corners, too.
Remember to clean the shower door and any tile walls. Wipe down the light fixtures and mirrors.
Clean the floors, dust, and vacuuming, and mop with a disinfectant cleaner. Empty the wastebasket and clean the cabinet and drawer surfaces.
Make sure to clean the sink and countertop and polish the faucet. Finally, remember to clean the toilet inside and out.
With a little effort, your bathroom will sparkle and shine.
Move on to the Living Areas
Once you’ve finished in the bathroom, move on to the living areas and give them a thorough clean. Vacuum the carpets and rugs, wiping down surfaces like end tables and TV stands. Light fixtures and fan blades should both be dusted. Remove any cobwebs and wipe down the baseboards. Clean any windows and window sills. Remember to mop and sanitize the hard floors. Make sure you get into all the nooks and crannies.
Remember to clean the furniture, too, by vacuuming the upholstery and wiping down surfaces. Finally, give the walls a good dusting and a quick wipe down. Following these steps will go a long way towards getting your bond back.
Clean Windows and Doors
Give your windows and doors a good scrubbing to ensure they’re sparkling clean when it’s time to move out. When you’re cleaning, please pay special attention to windowsills and door handles, as they tend to accumulate more dirt and grime. Any debris or residue can be removed with a towel and warm, soapy water.
Rinse with clean water and dry with a lint-free cloth. If there are any hard-to-remove stains, you can use a window cleaning solution or a mildly abrasive cleaner. To get into tight corners, use a soft-bristled brush.
Remember to wipe down the frames and door handles. When you’re done, your windows and doors should be gleaming and ready for inspection.
When it comes to getting your bond back, a thorough cleaning should be high on your list.
With the right supplies and plan, You can quickly make your home appear brand new with a little elbow grease.
Remember to check in with your landlord or real estate agent to make sure you’ve taken care of everything needed to get your bond back.
