Carpet Cleaning

by Wolfgang in Landlords Comments: 0 tags: Carpet, cat, cleaning, dog, Pet


We are often asked by owners to write into our tenancy agreement that at the end of the tenancy the tenant has to have the carpets cleaned professionally.

Under the Residential Tenancies Act we cannot do that. The tenant must deliver the carpet back to us in a clean and tidy condition – not more – not less. Unfortunately, the definition of what is reasonably clean and tidy varies from person to person and we have to be able to prove (that is why we take lots of entry inspection photos) that the carpet was clean before and was not after.

The only situation where we can specify the need for carpet cleaning, is if the tenant has permission to have a cat or a dog, in which case we insert the following clause into the tenancy agreement:

“The landlord will allow the tenant to keep ………..

This permission is also only granted on the condition that the tenant agrees to have the carpets professionally cleaned by CARPET TECH Phone: 021-0418982  06-8444320) upon vacating the property as there may be health and safety issues arising out of having the dog on the property. (allergies of future tenants)

Equally, the tenant can expect a clean and tidy carpet at the beginning of the tenancy.

Carpet Stains

We all know what it is like – accidents can happen.

If you have an accident with your carpet, we recommend that you call us and ask for advice.

Usually the worst thing you can do is to just try “something” to remove stains.

Our experts from ENVIRO clean and restore know exactly the best way to get a stain out and usually this is cheaper and less hassle than having to deal with a claim to fix the carpet later. The golden rules are:

1) Tell us what caused the stain as this determines the best remedy to get it removed.
2) Call us or CARPET TECH Phone: 021-0418982  06-8444320) for advice – We don’t bite!
3) Don’t give your children cordials with food colouring – you’ll NEVER get it out!
4) Pet accidents: have a spot clean done as soon as possible, if it gets in the underlay or timber floor it gets VERY costly to remove odours.
