    Default professional end of lease cleaners

    Has anyone used a professional end of lease/bond cleaner? If so how much did you pay and was it worth it? Being pregnant and the house we are cleaning has no air con and is an hour drive from our new place I am dreading the thought of needing to do an end of lease clean myself.

    My then boyfriend used one at the end of their lease, it was a flat rate to clean a 2 bed 2 bath unit. I can't remember the exact cost, but no more than a couple of hundred dollars.
    Did they do a good job? No way! We had to re clean it before he would get his bond back, even then the real estate wanted us to sugar soap the walls!

    We used one at our last rental. They came recommended thru our real estate & they guaranteed their work - if at inspection something wasn't up to scratch they were the ones who would have had to fix it and we didnt have to pay them till we got notification of our bond being payed in full.

    They did cost a few hundred dollars but was well worth it. They came and quoted so price would differ place to place

    Default professional end of lease cleaners

    When I moved I used jims cleaning. They did the end of lease cleaning & carpet cleaning. All up was $500?. Expensive but he did a great job and it saved me a lot of headache of worrying about last minute cleaning. The place was spotless & the carpet came up next to brand new.

    *edit: my house was a 3bedroom 1.5 bathroom townhouse.

    Ask the real estate who their preferred cleaner is and use them. If they have issues I then tell them to sort it out with their cleaner.

    For an average sized house including carpets I would estimate between $400-500 based on previous experience.

    Yes, it depends on house size. From memory when renting, we paid $300-400 for 3br houses, including carpets.

    Using someone recommended by real estate agent is a little more pricey, but usually worth it as they guarantee the work. If they miss anything it's their responsibility to return to clean it.

    I had allowed about $500 with the carpets. I have only had one quote so far and it was $650 which seems a bit steep. we have a big house though. 4 bed plus study, two large living spaces and two bathrooms. the carpets have to be professionally cleaned as its a condition of our pet bond which we paid an extra $500 on top of our normal bond.

    We paid a cleaner about $200 for a 3bdrm 2 storey house with 2 bathrooms & a 3rd toilet. I was reasonably happy with his efforts for the price, but he did miss a few things.

    Carpets were $145 on top of that, so the whole cleaning process was under $400.

    Mum used some for her lease ending, I think it was $50 per hour per person, for a minimum of 3 hours. Mum only had a small 2 bed unit that was fairly clean anyway so figured the 3 hours would be enough ( for 2 = 6 hours of work) frankly they did a rubbish job, and didn't complete the place ( even with mum there helping).
    Mum complained and got a free clean at her new place, but still had to pretty much do her old place again.

    Long story short it's worth paying the extra to get guarenteed work.
