Proper price for end of contract cleaning

Hi All,

As my lease is about to finish, I need to get my furnished 1-bedroom apartment (around 30 m2) cleaned.

I got a quote of 390 Fr from a company in Lausanne. However, just to make sure there are no issues later on, I sent them photos of the apartment. After looking at the photos, they now mention that the price will be 650 Fr because the apartment is furnished.

Here are my questions:

1. What is an appropriate price for cleaning of 1-bedroom furnished apartment (around 30 m2) ?

2. Is it possible that they increased the price after realizing that I don't know the rules of the game properly, and saw an opportunity to squeeze extra money ?

I have another agency with a quote of 490 Fr. Which one should I pick ?

thanks,
Anon

I dont have an answer but would appreciate if you can let me know which one you eventually pick and how did it go. I will need an agency soon and would be good to have a recommendation. Thanks !

Re: Proper price for end of contract cleaning

It is indeed easier to clean an empty apartment than one with furniture, so the higher price makes kind of sense. Though I think 650 is a bit on the high side and I would have said 500 sounds about alright.

My two previous apartments were about the same size (as each other that is, i.e. 2.5 rooms, some 80qm) and I paid I think 900 both times.

Just make sure you pick one that has "Abnahmegarantie", i.e. they guarantee to clean it to the satisfaction of any landlord and if said landlord is not ok with some of the cleaning they did, they will do that bit again for free.

Final Outcome: I talked to many agencies, and they all told me that the price is usually the same for furnished vs unfurnished.

I talked to this agency again, and they agreed upon the same old price (400Fr).

I have the cleaning scheduled for Wednesday, let's see how it goes. Will update.
