So let’s find out about this type of cleaning service and why tenants and landlords benefit from it.

What does end of tenancy cleaning mean for tenants?

What does end of lease cleaning mean to landlords and estate agents?

For landlords, end-of-lease cleaning means that they can often hand over a property to a new renter without needing to clean it at all. It saves the landlord time and money because a professional cleaning company has thoroughly cleaned their rental property beforehand.

For estate agents, this cleaning means that they can show a property in the best light possible. So, they have a good chance of getting someone new into the property very quickly. Which is also great for landlords, of course.

Can landlords charge a tenant for an end of tenancy clean?

If the landlord or estate agent that does the handover of your rented property deems that the cleaning hasn’t been done to a high standard, additional cleaning charges can be added to your security deposit. Landlords and or estate agents use an agency-approved checklist to ensure that every area of the property is cleaned to these standards.

Any professional cleaning prior to handover should also be using this checklist to ensure that every area of the home falls within the guidelines set out in the checklist. This ensures that the tenant will be in occurrence with their tenancy agreement and no further cleaning charges will be applied.

Checklist for end of tenancy cleaning

An end of tenancy cleaning service aims to leave a property in the same condition as when the tenant moved in. This means that the tenant’s deposit can be returned in full, and the whole situation is much less stressful for the tenants and the landlords.

To help us with this, we use cleaning checklist. We keep it up to date to ensure that our cleaners are cleaning to ever-stricter guidelines. Landlords and property management services are checking properties extremely thoroughly now. Without a comprehensive checklist, even a professional end of lease cleaner may likely miss areas now commonly checked by landlords.

What does an end of tenancy cleaning include?

An end of tenancy clean from professional cleaners should include a complete deep clean of the entire property. Professional end of tenancy clean uses a checklist to ensure that no area of the property is missed during the professional cleaning. It is designed to create a blank canvas for the new tenants and ensure you receive as much of your security deposit as possible.

So cleaning companies will do all of the cleaning tasks around your home, including wiping the skirting boards, window frames and door frames, mopping floors, dusting all areas, cleaning the kitchen appliances and kitchen cupboards, cleaning behind the toilets, and a great deal more.

In short, this cleaning service is a complete cleaning of an entire property ready for new tenants.

How much does an end of tenancy cleaning cost on average?

The average cleaning costs of an end of tenancy clean depend on the size of your property and where in the UK you are. For example, you can expect to pay a bit more if you are in London and your home is quite large.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the average costs of end of tenancy cleans from a professional end of tenancy cleaning team:

  • Studio flat – £180
  • One bed, one bath flat – £220
  • Two bed, two bath flat – £260
  • Two bed, one bath house – £300
  • Three bed, one bath house – £350
  • Four bed, one bath house – £400

This is a base rate for an end of tenancy clean for different-sized homes. This is a deep cleaning service following a checklist to ensure every area of the home is perfectly cleaned.

This won’t include additional cleaning services like carpet and upholstery cleaning, for example. Carpet cleaning is a great addition to an end of tenancy cleaning and can ensure you receive all of your security deposit back.


As we said, Cleaning Express has been delivering end of tenancy cleaning services in London for many years.

We always ensure cleaning checklists are up-to-date with the most thorough estate agents in London. This takes the stress out of cleaning a rented property for the tenants, landlords and estate agents.

Domestic cleaning is a regular clean of your home. While an end of tenancy clean is a deep scrub of an entire rented property. While both jobs involve cleaning, they are relatively different. So, we’re going to breakdown the cleaning services that Cleaning Express provide in this article and show you the differences between regular domestic cleaning and end of tenancy cleaning. So, let’s get started!

What is Domestic Cleaning?

Our domestic cleaning service at Cleaning Express includes every cleaning task that our customers require us to do. However, typically, these cleaner tasks are not all done at once. Instead, our cleaners will tackle certain cleaning tasks each time they enter our customer’s homes. So, one week our cleaners may tidy the downstairs of a house, dust and mop the kitchen floors, for example. Another week, they may iron, stack the dishwasher and vacuum. So, while Cleaning Express’ domestic cleaning services include all cleaning tasks, they are not performed at the same time.

Read our article about what is domestic cleaning to learn more.

What’s End of Tenancy Cleaning?

End of tenancy cleaning services include every cleaning service that we offer our domestic cleaning customers regularly and more. So what is the End of Tenancy Cleaning? We go into a rented property and clean every inch of it. We clean the kitchen cupboards, behind the toilet, the skirting boards and even the oven. We can clean the carpets and upholstery too. We use a checklist for all of our end of tenancy cleaning services that most of the estate agents in London use to check a property when it is handed back to them. This checklist is designed to show any areas that aren’t clean. Our cleaners use it to ensure that a rented property is always handed back in the cleanest condition possible.

The difference between domestic and end of tenancy cleaning

So, think of end of tenancy cleaning as a deep clean or purge. It is completely going over an entire property (typically in a few hours) to make it appear as clean and new as possible. Domestic cleaning is where our customers have a regular cleaner that comes into their home every day, week or month, whatever works best for them. That cleaner will tackle any cleaning tasks that customer needs them too in the allotted time they have.

Can a homeowner have an end of tenancy-type cleaning of their home?

Yes, they can. Here are Cleaning Express these are called Deep Cleaning Services. They are exactly the same as our end of tenancy cleaning services. We can clean your carpets, upholstery, oven, skirting boards and every other inch of your home. Our deep cleaning services are perfect if you’ve just moved into a new house and want to make it feel like a home. They are also great if you have been a bit too busy to clean and need a hand getting your home back in shape.
