How to Clean Walls in the End of Tenancy

Contact with +Johanna Stevens


The walls are usually the last thing renters think about when cleaning their lodgings in the end of their lease periods. But even if your walls look clean, they are not and I will prove that to you.


Once upon a time, when I was still living on rent, I also thought that my walls were clean and didn’t need maintenance, but as time passes these parts of the room become darker, they change their colour because tiny dust particles stick to them. If you think I’m wrong, just rub a corner of a wall in your rented property with a damp sponge, and see how it will become lighter.

Anyway, here are a few wall cleaning tips from move out cleaners from London:

  • First of all, prepare your wall cleaner. Mix two cups white vinegar with four cups warm water and add twenty drops eucalyptus or tea tree essential oil. Combine the ingredients in a big container and use a sponge to apply the mixture to the wall. I recommend that you start working from the top-down on every wall, so to keep the cleaned areas clean. It is also important to cover one small area at a time and to use only up-down motions. Otherwise, you will leave traces on the walls.
  • End of tenancy cleaning London experts recommend that you fill another container with warm water only and to keep it close to you, so that you can wipe the solution off the wall after you apply it. Use a clean cloth for the purpose, and wash it from time to time when it becomes too dirty.

This is the easiest way to clean your walls, so don’t even think about using commercial cleaners. They will make your task a lot harder.
