How to Choose End of Tenancy Cleaning Services

End of tenancy cleaning is time consuming, dirty and tiresome to say the least. However, an outstanding cleaning job at the end of stay in a rental property is the responsibility of the tenant. It is also essential if you want to receive a full return of the security deposit. Instead of doing it yourself, you can outsource the job to professional companies that specialize in cheap end of tenancy cleaning London. But how do you know which company will serve your needs and which one you should avoid? Below are a few tips that will help you choose end of tenancy cleaning services.

Reliability

You want to go with a company that is reliable. It should have a functional website that outlines its services and if possible, reviews by former customers. Talk to family and friends to find out what kind of experience they had with the firm they hired for end of tenancy cleaning services. Don’t cut the corners by hiring the kind down the block who use their mother’s broom and mop. You will lose more than just the security deposit.

Checklist of what you should expect

The best companies will have a checklist of what you should expect. The standard checklist should include vacuuming rugs and upholstery, dusting and wiping of windowsills, furniture, banisters etc., cleaning all glasses i.e. insides of windows, mirrors and picture frames, cleaning kitchen and bathrooms, disposal of rubbish and debris, washing floors and more.

Standardized pricing

You don’t want any guesswork, unexpected addons or surprises. Make sure that the company tells you much the services will cost upfront. Better still, the company should have prices posted on their website. Given how expensive it is to move, minimizing the end of tenancy cleaning costs by avoiding surprises is pretty important.

Landlords and tenants as clients

We recommend choosing a company that offers end of tenancy cleaning services to both tenants and landlords. This is because such companies usually understand the needs of the landlords and as such, do a great job to satisfy you and the landlord.

Re-cleaning

The best companies don’t usually have to re-clean. However, should you need it, you will need to choose a firm that offers re-cleaning.

Customer satisfaction

The best services boast a high level of customer satisfaction. Working with a company that only satisfies clients half of the time will only set you up for problems like losing a fraction of the security deposit.

Nissan’s Brain to Vehicle Technology Could Help Prevent Accidents

Nissan is currently working on a new technology that may help drivers execute maneuvers faster to avoid accidents. The technology is designed to recognize whether a driver is about to perform an evasive move like brake or swerve. This could ultimately help cars with autonomous abilities perform those actions 0.2-0.5 seconds faster. There are two main benefits of the brain to vehicle technology. For starters, it enhances driver performance, allowing them to achieve full riding potential while maintaining control. It also provides real time personalization of the autonomous driver and other functions.

Brain to Vehicle Technology: How it Works

The brain to vehicle technology is an  innovation that will identify signs that the driver’s brain is about to initiate a movement and begin the action more quickly. When one is driving in mountainous terrain where there are a lot of corners, this technology will give the driver more control and help them drive better with confidence.

The technology is in its early phase and not near implementation. According to Nissan, it will be rolled out for practical application in 5-10 years. The ability to measure neurons firing in the brain and interpret them has come a long way. It is even possible to measure to associate such neuron patterns with specific activities. However, the devices used to measure neuron activity are cumbersome and often come with limitations.

Brain to Vehicle Technology: Configuration

Brain to vehicle technology will utilize electroencephalography, whose reliability and accuracy relies on quality of contact between electrodes and scalp. It will provide the world’s first system for real-time detection and analysis of brain activity as it relates to driving. The technology will include movement related cortical potential (activity in advance of intentional movement) as well as error related potentials (activity that reveals variance between what the driver is experiencing and what they expect).

The brain to vehicle technology will measure brain activity using a skullcap worn by the driver. The cap will analyze and interpret brain data for immediate implementation by the onboard autonomous systems. It is easy to wear, light in weight and comes with high-performance sensors. Nissan made the skullcap wireless and as such, the driver will hardly know it is there.

The company has been working on the brain to vehicle project with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Nissan is also collaborating with the National Institute of Scientific Research in Canada and BitBrain, a company that specializes in brain-computer interfaces.

Nissan Kickstarts Production of Official Skyline Spares

If you are a die-hard JDM fan, you will be excited to know that Nissan is starting production of official skyline spares. The company will also be producing spares most of their ageing sports cars and the Godzilla. Dubbed the Heritage Parts Programme, this move will see Nissan supplying genuine OE-spec components the R32, R33, R34 and multiple generations of the Fairlady Z. The program also includes the 1999 Nissan 300zx.

The new venture will be a part of the motorsport division and will start by making spares for R32 Skyline. Spares for other models mentioned above will follow suit with time. The late ‘80s and early ‘90s played a crucial role in every car enthusiast’s life. Some of the best sports cars including the Toyota Supra, Nissan R33 and R34  as well as the FD Mazda. Anyone who loves muscle cars knows that the ‘60s, ‘70s and the ‘90s were the golden era of sports cars.

You can actually find traces of the huge amounts of resources used to develop technology for these monumental cars. Advancements like four-wheel steering, active aerodynamics, twin turbocharge and electronically adjustable suspension wouldn’t have been possible were it not for investments made by Nissan, Toyota and other companies.

Owning a car made before 2000 in today’s world can be a pain. While the car is fine most of the time, it does require regular maintenance. The ability to source quality parts is nearly impossible since not many manufacturers make spares for old models. People are often forced to use non OEM car parts, which cause more damage in the end.

Buying and maintaining cars manufactured in the ‘80s and ‘90s is also pretty expensive. For instance, purchasing a used Nissan 300zx can cost well over $10,000 if you want it in pristine condition. The Heritage Parts Programme couldn’t come at a better time. Many car owners are in dire need of genuine Nissan OEM parts and this move will tackle that issue.

Nissan is already manufacturing parts for the R32, and Godzilla parts are expected soon. The Primera GT and Pulsar GTi-R, both of which were stand out performers in the British Touring Car Championship, could be covered with time. At least we hope so since the demand is there. As someone who loves the ‘80s and ‘90s cars, I would be for the idea of overnighting parts from Japan. The downside is that driving those cars will soon be as expensive as driving a Nissan altima.
