HELP! I need a move-out Cleaner for our Apartment (Reinigungen)

We need to find a cleaning crew that will clean our 2.5rm apartment up to
Swiss standards before we hand in our keys at 3pm on November 8th and
leave the country. The crew our house owner recommended is booked
already.

I have the checklist from the real estate company of how "clean" it
must be. Does anyone have a company they would recommend to do this
for us? Hopefully reasonably priced, but we're also desperate!

Please let me know as soon as possible any contact info you have.

Many Thanks!

Re: HELP! I need a move-out Cleaner for our Apartment (Reinigungen)

Hi seattleredlily,

I used "Cucuzza" Gebäudereinigung (http://www.cucuzza.ch Tel: 044 312 32 23) when I moved out of my flat in Oerlikon. You could give them a try. My landlord was able to arrange it for me at a few days notice, they came in to clean on a Sunday and it included a "Übergabegarantie" on the Monday, which meant that the cleaning guy was present at the hand over to deal with anything that wasn't up to scratch.

I paid around CHF 900.- for a large 2.5 room apartment. They sent me a quote beforehand which listed exactly what was included (windows inside and out, external blinds, radiators, floors polishing, inside the oven, as well as all the basic stuff you'd expect). Not sure how this rates price-wise compared to other companies or if I was ripped off, but at the time I had little choice but to let my landlord organise it for me and was just thankful that it was all hassle free and one less thing for me to worry about.

cheers,
Jot

I used CH-Reinigungen to clean my 2-room apt last Sept. They quoted 600 CHF for a 2.5-room apt with guarantee. They were present during my apartment handover to deal with any additional cleaning request from the landlord (if he thinks something is not quite clean yet). I'm quite satisfied with their service.

I will not hire a cleaning service again.

I recently moved form my 2.5 and hired the services of a cleaning company. I was charged 900.

I am clean living as it is, so they never really had that much to do. They never even filled the holes in the walls, the verwaltung didn't even inspect the place. They never replaced any of the standard fittings. I put hiring a cleaner down to a lesson learned.

It was a waste of money.

Of course if you prefer the convenience and the peace of mind of guaranteed handover then it's worth it.

Re: HELP! I need a move-out Cleaner for our Apartment (Reinigungen)

Thanks everyone!

I just talked with my house owner and I must say...the Swiss know how to put their foot down! She had me stand in the room while she called the company and told them that "you always come when I need you and if you don't come for this we are done with your company!" She sure knows how to play hardball!

So we're all set for a cleaner. Thanks again!

Now here's hoping it's not an exorbitant amount.
