When should the landlord pay for professional carpet cleaning?
As much as tenants have a responsibility of keeping the property clean and tidy, landlords too have obligations that they must be strict with. It is the landlord’s duty to hire professional cleaners for the carpets once the tenants have moved out if the carpets are in good condition and similar to the one at the signing of the lease agreement.
Deep carpet cleaning is not the responsibility of the tenants. The professional carpet cleaning after the tenants have vacated is a must and a part of the required end of tenancy cleaning that landlords are responsible for. It will ensure that all bacteria, dirt, debris, pet hairs, and allergens have been safely removed from the carpet. A clean and hygienic environment will be more welcoming to new tenants and will ensure they inhabit a safe and comfortable property.
