Cleaning, repairs and trash

Hi all,

Iím coming to the end of my stay in Switzerland by the end of this month. Iíve really struggled with poor health and depression and as such I have not been able to sort out even simple things.

Now Iím moving out I only have a short time to organise the emptying and cleaning of the apartment, and since they want to start showing the flat soon, I am worried that they will expect all damage to be fixed (thereís damage to some
Of the flooring and a wall that needs replastering).

In addition I have to have it fully cleaned and also hopefully have some furniture removed and taken to the dump.

I know this is probably pie in the sky, but is there a service who will take care of all of this for me in one go? Or will the managing agents usually have someone who comes in and tells me what needs fixing and organise it themselves? Ideally I need to find someone who will take care of all of this in a short timeframe as possible.

Any thoughts/pointers most welcome.

Thanks and regards,

Losing.

Re: Cleaning, repairs and trash

- You do not have to repair anything if you don't feel like it, you can just leave all as is and during take-over you'll be presented with the bill for the amount you liable for. Also if you repair it now you pay the full bill, if you let it be you only pay part of the bill. And damage due to normal wear and tear you do not have to pay for.

- There are a lot of cleaning companies, do a search on the forum for some recommendations. Just be sure they do a hand-over guarantee.

- You can buy stickers for your trash and put it on the road where it will be collected, or call one of many people with a van who will take it to the dump for you. Stuff that is any good can also be offered for free here and on Facebook, maybe somebody wants it and gone is gone. I've had to empty full houses a few times due to emigrating or deaths in the family, and found that offering for free or damn cheap on Facebook, and than pay some dude on one of the last days to trash all that remained is a very effective method.

Sorry to hear this.
I can share what someone else did (may not be ideal). They did basic cleaning and then asked the landlords to deduct cleaning and repair costs from the deposit and any shortfall was submitted to the insurance. Not sure how much did they finally need to fund beyond the deposit but that is one option if you absolutely dont have the time or inclination to do this. Try Moov.ch for Cleaning options? Or Maybe explore Comparis.ch as well?
