Easy solutions for removing crayons from walls

Our kids are cutie pies and sweethearts and we totally adore them, or at least most of the time. Well, when your rent agreement is coming to an end and you have already planned your move out, you have hired one of the London’s professionals for an end of tenancy cleaning and you have an appointment with the landlord for an inspection, the fact that your kid just drew a masterpiece with crayons on the wall does not make you happy at all. However, when you called the nice people from the cleaning company, they advised you to try removing the stains now, because it would be much easier than if you wait until they arrive two weeks from today. So here are some simple solutions:

Baking soda

You need only a damp rug and some baking soda. Click To Tweet Scrub all the drawings and they should vanish with not so much efforts of yours.

Pencil eraser

crayons-390763_1280Well, this sounds logical, but may as well end up tragically. Use a pencil eraser only after you are completely sure that it won’t leave any more color on the wall. If you have a white one, then you don’t have to worry. But trying to clean the crayons with a red eraser, for instance, may make your wall red at the end and then you will have some more trouble.

Non-gel toothpaste

Ok, you may not have baking soda or erasers at home, but you definitely have toothpaste. Have a little of it and scrub the area carefully. As we know the toothpaste is meant to make your teeth shine, and hopefully the walls, too.

Wet clout

This is the easiest one, but unfortunately not always working, because some crayons are far too stubborn and cannot be washed off so easily.

You received a wonderful perfume as a gift for your birthday from a nice friend, you haven’t seen in ages. It’s all gone now, but your heart breaks, when you try to get rid of it. You have millions of photos from your childhood, from your trip to Spain last month, from the time spent with your beloved, from your sister’s wedding. You have that one dress your mom bought you when you were 14, that was your first real dress and that is too old-fashioned now, but not enough retro, and you move it from place to place every time you rearrange your wardrobe, but never throw it away.

The medicines

You had the flu last winter and you bought tons of medicines, because you have to be 100% healthy in a week for your ski holiday. Remember most of the drugs are not efficient for a long time and their expiration date is often too soon. So sort them out and get rid of all the useless ones.

Is end of tenancy cleaning expensive?

My rental agreement is running out very soon and I am not thinking of renewing it. I have decided to move a bit closer to where I work and to find a property that would better suit my needs. I have already chosen a couple of properties to look at but what worries me is my end of tenancy cleaning which I have to perform at the end of my tenancy agreement.I have never done anything like that as this is my first rental property so I have no idea what I am supposed to do. Click To Tweet

Luckily for me, the search engines are brilliant and all the information I need is stored there. I can also find comments made by people who have used end of tenancy cleaning services before and who have shared their experience with all those who are now needing such help.

I have realized that cleaning the property by myself is not an option as I am way too busy to spare time to do it. That is why I have decided to hire professional help and I started my research to see how much I would need to pay for my two-bedroom flat. End of tenancy cleaning prices start as low as £120 for two bed, one bath property. I had paid £700 deposit so it is well worth it spending £120 to get my deposit back. End of tenancy cleaning prices are formed depending on the clients’ needs too. I have realized that I don’t need my carpet cleaning as I don’t have one but I need my oven spotless for the inspection.

So what I did was contact several agencies and ask them for a bespoke quote that would be right for my needs. This way I was paying for the services I needed rather than for something that is included in the end of tenancy cleaning prices but is not going to be done.
