Re: End of tenancy cleaning - DIY?

We had a month while renting two properties, and I thought that that would be plenty time to do the 5.5 place we had moved out off.....NEVER again!

Despite borrowing a steam cleaner from one of our neighbours and going over the place with, what I thought, was a fine tooth comb we still failed miserably, and ended up with a 900CHF bill to have professional cleaners in after the walk-through.

The hassle (and to be truthful..stress) to me just isn't worth it.I honestly felt like bursting into tears when I was told we had failed. Next time we'll bite the bullet and no matter what it costs, we'll get cleaners in from day one.

I know it all depends on the company who carry out the walk-through, and how 'picky' they are, but I just wouldn't want to take the chance.
What was wrong with it?

(This may help others).
