Is your tenancy coming to an end and would you like to know how much it costs for a professional to come in and clean the premises so you can get your deposit back in full?

If, so, you’ve come to the right place.

In October 2017 we contacted 8 different cleaning firms and asked them to provide us with a price for cleaning a 2-bed home at the end of a tenancy.

The results of our research can be found on this page.

The Difference Between End of Tenancy Cleaning and “Normal” Cleaning

Normal cleaning includes wiping, dusting and hoovering the visible and accessible parts of a home.

End of tenancy cleaning goes much further and is also known as deep cleaning. The main difference is with the carpets which are usually cleaned, and the kitchen/bathrooms, where appliances, suites and white goods are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

While every cleaning company will have differing criteria for an end of tenancy clean, most will include the following:

  • Fridge
  • Freezer
  • Microwave
  • Oven inc Trays and Racks
  • Extractor Hood
  • Washing Machine
  • Dryer

Optional Extras

Optional extras usually include; cleaning the exterior of window and sills, gutter unblocking and cleaned, patio and driveway cleaning, curtain and upholstery steam cleaning.

Carpet cleaning is sometimes advertised as a separate item but most tenants will need to have the carpets cleaned upon completion of the tenancy, hence why we included this in our price guide.

We’ve also included the cost of oven cleaning, although some of the cleaning firms we contacted only included this as an optional extra to their published price lists.
