The short answer is YES if it’s requested.
The end of tenancy clean may or may not include the fridge and other appliances, depending on the tenant’s preferences and whether they were part of the move-in inventory. If the tenant requests that the fridge and other appliances be included in the cleaning, the landlord or letting agent may agree to this as part of the check-out process.
It is worth noting that a professional cleaning service will often include cleaning the fridge, freezer, and other appliances as part of their end of tenancy clean. However, this may come at an additional cost, and the tenant should make sure to clarify what is included in the cleaning service before hiring.
If the fridge and other appliances were included in the move-in inventory, then it is generally expected that they will also be included in the end of tenancy clean. In this case, the landlord or letting agent may request that the fridge and other appliances be cleaned thoroughly as part of the check-out process.
Ultimately, the decision to include the fridge and other appliances in the end of tenancy clean will depend on the tenant’s preferences and the agreement between the tenant, landlord, and letting agent. It is important for all parties involved to communicate and be clear on what is expected as part of the end of tenancy clean to avoid any misunderstandings or disagreements.
