End of Tenancy Cleaning in Edinburgh. Professional move in and move out cleaning service

If you are moving out of a rented property in Edinburgh, you can save time and effort by letting professional cleaners do the dirty work. We provide a complete end of tenancy cleaning service as well as pre tenancy cleaning for tenants and landlords across Edinburgh.

What is end of tenancy cleaning?

End of Tenancy cleaning is a specialist deep clean of your house and appliances. This includes for example:

  • Deep cleaning kitchen appliances such as the oven and hob, fridge and microwave etc
  • Thoroughly clean and disinfect all sinks, toilets, baths and showers
  • Cleaning doors, skirting boards, radiators and light switches
  • Thoroughly vacuum carpets and rugs and soft furnishings (beds, sofas etc), including underneath and behind all items.
  • Cleaning blinds, windows, even hoovering the corners of ceilings and lightshades
  • Cleaning and disinfecting all shelves, bookcases, drawers etc

Why do you need an end of tenancy clean?

To ensure you get your full rental deposit back from your landlord, everything in your rental property must be clean. Rental agreements normally state that the property must be cleaned to the same standard at the end of the tenancy as it was before you moved in. If any part of the house or flat is left dirty, then landlords can deduct cleaning fees from your rental deposit. 

So before you move out it is well worth checking your inventory or check-in report to make sure everything is as clean as it was when you moved in. Remember that cleanliness is different to wear and tear. While an item might be worn and aged- it must still be clean.

Chances are that your property will have been professionally deep cleaned before you moved in. So it's up to you to ensure that everything is cleaned to the same high standard when you move out.


Moving house can be a very demanding time. So why not let our friendly staff and cleaners relieve some of the stress by organising all the cleaning for you.

Depending on the size of your property, we would send 1, 2 or 3 cleaners to make sure the job is completed within a single day. This is ideal if you have to move out of an apartment.


Pre tenancy cleaning and Move in cleaning

If you are a landlord, or thinking of letting out your property, our pre-tenancy cleaning service will leave your house or apartment spotless and ready for your new tenents. Move-in cleaning creates a stunning first impression for viewings and for your new tenents. Deep cleaning gives the added benefit of making it much easier to record the state of repair of fixtures and fittings in your property.

If you are buying or selling a house, move-in and move-out cleaning can save you time and effort during what is already a stressful time. Our professional cleaning service will give you the peace of mind of knowing that everything in your new home is as clean as you would expect it to be. Likewise, it is only good manners when you sell your house to leave it as clean as possible for the new owners.

Additional services

We can also offer a carpet cleaning service via our sister company. We can recommend window cleaning and handyman services amongst others should you need them.

We've been helping our customers with end of tenancy cleaning since 2004. We also run our own letting agency, so know the standards required. Landlords and letting agents rightly want their properties to be in the best condition for the next tenants. It is your responsibility to get the cleanliness standard to where it was when you moved in.

We can usually work at relatively short notice if there's a slot available, although it's always better to give us a bit of time to prepare to guarantee the best results. Just recently we have been booked up in advance so please give us as much notice as possible.

Our pricing is extremely competitive. If you think we can help we would love to hear from you. You can phone us on 0131 476 3276 or fill in the contact form.

If you are a landlord, you may be interested to hear that we have a very competitive sister company Home Sweet Home Letting. We offer a comprehensive property management service and take the same transparent and ethical approach to business as we do with the cleaning agency.
