End of Tenancy Cleaning for Carpets and Upholstery
You should know that deep carpet and upholstery cleaning, as well as mattress cleaning, are not included in the end of tenancy checklist. This is natural because these are separate services and require additional time, as well additional equipment and cleaning supplies. It is common for tenants to ask for carpet or upholstery cleaning to be done along with the EOT chores mentioned above. Most companies offer significant discounts if you book them for several services. However, if you need end of tenancy + another cleaning service, make sure to plan enough time for everything to be done and for textile items such as carpets, upholstery or curtains to dry.
