Carpets are the focal point of many disputes between tenants and landlords because they are the most visible part of any room. A steam cleaner is the best way to clean a dirty carpet and get your deposit back if you’re a tenant. If you’re landlord, it makes sense to get the property carpets as clean and inviting as possible to help re-let the property.
Carpets naturally wear over time. If you rent a property with a new carpet, don’t expect it will stay in perfect condition even after a year. The property will show more wear the longer the tenant has lived there, but it can still be cleaned.
You can hire a cleaning machine or leave it to the professionals. Bet you can can guess which option we can help you with!
Professional cleaning is required at the end of a tenancy
Although it can be a daunting task, the importance of end-of-tenancy carpet cleaning is not to be underestimated. Statistics show that 85% of those who choose to do this type of cleaning by themselves don’t get their entire tenancy deposit back. End of Tenancy Cleaning today is not considered a household chore but a professional, profitable cleaning process.
If you don’t have time or the desire to clean your home yourself, a professional cleaner can take care of it for you.
What does end of tenancy cleaning cost?
It depends. There are three main factors that affect the average cost of your end of tenancy carpet cleaning:
- The property’s size
- The number of rooms
- The condition of the carpet
If required by the tenancy agreement, specialised services like hot water extraction cleaning carpet/upholstery or exterior window washing or even garden clearing may be added. Cleaner Carpets Ashford provide the best value cleaning in the Ashford area.

Tenant cleaning responsibilities
Common perceptions are that tenants who move out of a rented home need to have it professionally cleaned to recover their deposit. This is no longer true as of June 2019. Tenants do not have to hire professional cleaners at the end of their tenancy.
Tenants can clean the property themselves if they like. However it’s generally recommended to hire professional cleaners. This will avoid arguments over the deposit later.
Landlords: Can I use the tenant’s deposit for cleaning services?
If the carpet is in poor condition, a landlord has the legal right to withhold your security deposit to cover carpet cleaning. If the landlord notices excessive wear and tear on carpets, they can deduct money to pay for carpet cleaning.
Do I need to move furniture ?
This is not necessary, but it may be useful if you have a lot of furniture. The tenancy cleaners must vacuum under sofas, cabinets, etc. in order to get a refund of your deposit.
