Pre-sale cleaning – what you need to know

There is so much involved in selling your home. It’s important not to underestimate the importance of being able to depend on your pre-sale cleaners. This crucial decision can add tens of thousands of dollars to your final sale price.

1800 CLEANER have witnessed customers attempting to sell homes using a substandard cleaning company. Selling something confidently is impossible when we don’t feel good about the product. We’ve learnt from thousands of pre-sale cleaning situations that there’s an intelligent way to approach this essential part of the sales process.

Your pre-sale cleaners can deliver the best value by accentuating the home’s appeal to prospective buyers. A large part of buying a house is about how the home makes prospective buyers feel while walking through their potential new home. Selling your home is, thereby, not an entirely rational process. It involves supporting the potential new owners to imagine themselves living in the home as they move from room to room.



A high quality pristine clean is key

Our customers often tell us that our cleaning has transformed their homes and that it feels like they’re living in a different space. What is most significant about what 1800 CLEANER does is that we can remove all the fine particle dust and other invisible contaminants, impurities and irritants entirely from your house.

It can’t be underestimated what being in a dust-free environment feels like; even though we might not be fully aware of it, it is registered nonetheless. Another factor we can sense, albeit subtly, is how a home has been cleaned – has it been cleaned in a rush or with deep care and respect?

Our pre-sale cleaners are trained deeply in our advanced cleaning methods. And we treat all of our staff with deep care so that they can, in turn, show that same depth of care in your pre-sale clean. And when a potential buyer feels that, they’re even more likely to feel like this is the home for them.
