The best end of lease cleaners in Canberra


If you’re about to move out of a rental property, chances are you’ve thought about hiring a professional to take care of end of lease cleaning. And why not? Engaging an end of lease cleaner means you’ll have more time to prepare for moving day instead of cleaning windows and scrubbing stains out of your carpet.

Specialist end of lease cleaners are also less likely to overlook details like wiping door handles and dusting skirting boards, increasing your odds of passing the final inspection (and getting back 100 percent of your bond) with flying colours. The problem? It isn’t always easy to find a thorough, reliable and cost-effective end of lease cleaning company in Canberra. Choosing a cleaner who isn’t up to scratch can cost you part of your bond, and they may even need to come back multiple times before your landlord or property manager is satisfied with the cleanliness of the property.

In this article, we’ll provide a few tips for choosing an end of lease cleaning provider and share where to find the best in Canberra.

What makes a great end of lease cleaning service?

As a tenant, it’s your responsibility to make sure the property is left as clean and tidy as the day you moved in, excluding reasonable wear and tear.

A skilled cleaner will understand what your property manager or landlord requires from an end of lease clean, and will work hard to satisfy their expectations.

When choosing an end of lease cleaning service, it can be helpful to consider the following:

  • Experience. Cleaning is a skill, and the more practice a cleaner has, the better they are at it. Look for a cleaner that has specific experience with end of lease cleaning, as this often requires more work than regular house cleaning.
  • Attention to detail. Ask for testimonials or read online reviews to check that your cleaner is thorough and catches every speck of dust and grime. A great cleaner takes pride in their work and doesn’t take shortcuts (property managers are very good at identifying when a cleaner has cut corners!).
  • Reliable and responsive. The best cleaners turn up when they say they will, work efficiently and respond quickly to customer queries. If it takes five business days for a cleaner to call you back, or they are constantly rescheduling the job, it may be worth considering another provider.
  • Bond back guarantee. Many cleaners offer a bond back guarantee with their end of lease cleaning services, which can help ensure you get the quality clean that you need.
  • High-tech cleaning equipment and methods. New technologies make cleaning faster, more thorough, and kinder to our environment. If you’re concerned about the use of harsh chemicals, or just want to ensure a thorough clean, consider choosing a cleaning company that keeps up to date with cleaning innovations.

I have tried end of lease cleaning service of Daniel and Huong 3 times for last 7 months (two rental properties). They made the properties pass inspection right the first time, with very reasonable prices. I would avoid big cleaning companies as I found small businesses can offer cheaper quotes and it is easier to contact them if anything goes wrong. If anyone is after an end of lease cleaner, you can try their service. Their number is 0410189138.

I personally would avoid the big cleaners who send anyone into your home to clean it. Avoiding cleaners who are just starting out is a common mistake. Cleaners just starting out have something to prove. I would go for them over the bigger names.

Excellent service, great people. Worth recommending Blue Cleaning Team – – 0403 6867 01

I got my end of lease cleaning done by kikstar. He did a fantastic job and was super friendly. I had him clean my very dirty house and he delivered with a lot more than I expected. I thought his price was reasonable and he added free carpet steam cleaning. Definitely recommend this guy. Here is his webpage

I used Revitalise to get my 3 bedroom apartment in Kingston end of lease cleaned and they were great!

The staff who came to clean were hard working, very nice and knew what they were doing.. Martonia and two other staff came but she is one of the loveliest ladies I’ve met ?

Surprisingly, they were also one of the cheapest quotes I got. All over, great service at a great price. I couldn’t be happier with the experience and inspection passed first time. All the best to these guys!!

The receptionist – Meg was a joy to deal with as well when getting quotes and when the removalists cancelled on me she was very understanding and quick to reschedule the cleaning.

Their website is or 0412 849 666.

I tried to use Jims the other day but they were externally expensive.

Some how I found a company called Blue cleaning group, they were so friendly and reasonable price for an urgent clean.

Cleaning was great! and they also do steam clean. Totally satisfied.

When we were moving out, our carpets were in very bad shape . It surely would have taken a lot of time cleaning them myself. Got recommended to . They did a pretty good job.
That guy helped us move a few stuff as well.
Would surely reckon them

Thanks PuppiesCanberra for the great recommendation, I ended up using for my end of lease cleaning and they were fantastic! They did such a good job my real estate agent said the house and carpets looked better than when I moved in.. They even helped me move some of the small stuff left over in the house to my car. Highly recommend to anyone else looking for a cleaner.

My friend also said was really good too, as they let you see their prices and book online. Will give these guys a try in the future!

zllauh zllauh 6:49 pm 17 Mar 15

Was living in a shared house in Canberra and when we vacated the carpet was filthy ! We got referred to . These guys did a pretty good job , was a helpful lad who helped us a bit with the moving as well . Would surely reckon them for carpet cleaning and for moving furniter ;).

I used Revitalise cleaning the other day at my place in Canberra city for an end of lease cleaning job which involved steam cleaning the carpet. Jisan was friendly and did the job quickly and I passed inspection – i recommend him! is the address.

Yeah I can, call Phill Belgrove. Really nice guy and easy to deal with. here is his website,

If you do it yourself – take photos of EVERYTHING afterwards including silly little things like window tracks. I’ve been stung once. And thanks to the digital camera revolution, that is the only time I have ever been stung.

JimCharles JimCharles 10:09 am 13 Sep 14

I think it’s more to do with some unscrupulous landlords trying to retain rental bonds by finding something to complain about. It’s usually about dirt and perceptions of cleanliness, even if a place is spotless.
If you go with their own agent’s recommended cleaner, there’s little they can complain about.

Alderney Alderney 9:56 pm 12 Sep 14

Have you thought of doing it yourself?

The last place I rented before I bought, the real estate agent complained that the bloke who cleaned the carpets left fluff around the edges (easily cleared away with a quick vacuum), and failed to notice that I’d replaced the whole kitchen lino, and done a pretty bodge job of it too.

The point I’m trying to get across is that these people only see the low hanging fruit. Leave them something that is easily remedied to whinge about and they’ll feel they’ve done their job.

Email your real estate agent and ask who they recommend – that way they can’t complain about the cleaning at final inspection.
