How much does an end of tenancy clean cost?

Many landlords and estate agents require tenants to have their property professionally cleaned when they move out. Some even go as far as requesting a receipt as evidence to show that the professional clean has taken place. No doubt, many tenants, landlords and estate agents have shopped around for end of tenancy cleaning company quotes, but how much does it really cost?

Size of the property

Price will vary on the size of the property. Larger properties like a 5 bedroom houses will cost more to clean. Smaller properties like a 2 bedroom flat will cost around £175. It’s important to let the cleaning company know how many rooms need to be cleaned and how big the property is. You can be charged more or companies can refuse to carry out the services if they find your property to be bigger than you stated.

The condition of your property

The condition of your property can be a factor on how much your end of tenancy cleaning will cost. There have been cases of companies adding more money onto the overall sum because properties have been left in a bad condition. You should read the terms and conditions of the company you choose to see if you will incur any additional costs.


Additional costs can be incurred if extra items need to be added on to the end of tenancy clean. For example, wall washing is not typically included. Always check with your company to see what is included and if you need any extras.

Carpet cleaning

Many properties have carpets that will require a steam clean. However, the number of carpets you have in your property will affect the overall price. Normally, a standard end of tenancy cleaning will exclude upholstery and carpets. Check with your cleaning company to see if this is included, if not you’ll have to add it in as an extra.

Overall, it’s best to check with your cleaning company what’s included in their end of tenancy cleaning service.
