Cleaning Shower and Bathroom in your furnished Flat

Cleaning is usually not the favorite occupation of tenants living in furnished apartments. And cleaning the bathrooms is even worse. But if you clean and maintain the bathroom and shower right from the start, you won't have to worry about high bills for final cleaning or owners who complain when you move out. The water in Berlin is very hard and calcareous and the traces are hard to remove if you don't remove them regularly. Just follow the Crocodilian eco bathroom cleaning guide. It is easy if you do it regularly.

Tenants often neglect cleaning the oven before they move out. Landlords are often surprised when they discover this. Unfortunately, we sometimes get complaints from landlords because the oven of the furnished apartments looks a mess, if the oven has not been cleaned for a year or so. And tenants complain when they receive the invoice for the final cleaning. Sometimes the cleaner needs a few hours just to clean the oven. If you clean the oven regularly with e.g. soda or other eco-products, there should not be any problems with the owner. Just follow the Crocodilian eco-guide to cleaning the oven
