End of tenancy cleaning is a requirement for lots of rental agreements, ensuring that the property is good-as-new, before new tenants move in.
But how much does end of tenancy cleaning cost? And what do you get for your money?
We’ve answered some of your frequently asked questions about end of tenancy cleaning below, including some detailed information on the cost of the service.
How much does end of tenancy cleaning cost?
Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this, and the cost of end of tenancy cleaning depends on a number of factors.
So, what determines the cost of end of tenancy cleaning?
The biggest factor that affects cost is the size of the property. This is usually measured in terms of the number of rooms, rather than square footage.
Most end of tenancy suppliers will also need to know whether the property is a flat or a house, and how many staircases there are.
Depending on which tasks you require, the cost will vary further. You can usually add a number of extra services onto your end of tenancy clean, including:
- Carpet & upholstery cleaning
- Outdoor areas, like balconies & terraces
Is end of tenancy cleaning more expensive than other cleaning services?
When you’re shopping around for end of tenancy cleaning quotes, you should expect the service to be more expensive than other cleaning services you’ve previously booked.
After all, end of tenancy cleaning is a specialist cleaning service - the work is usually completed by a team of cleaners, rather than an individual, and most teams will bring their own cleaning products and equipment too.
To ensure a great job is done, there’s often no time limit for an end of tenancy clean, so your cleaners will stay until the work is done.
To ensure complete peace of mind, cleaning companies will usually ‘guarantee’ the clean for a period of time - this means that if your property inspection fails due to cleaning, the cleaners will re-clean for free.
As a result, end of tenancy cleaning is more expensive than regular cleaning services, or a standard deep clean.
