Cost of cleaning a flat at the end of tenancy?

Hi all,
I am a landlord to several flats and I am interested in hiring cleaning services for the flats when tenants have left the flat.
How much does it typically cost for a single flat to be cleaned at the end of a tenancy? Could there be any discounts for multiple flats that need cleaning?
If rates are reasonable, I would consider having a more regular cleaning service to keep flats in good order.

Nowadays the hourly rate for cleaning a home regularly would be between £10 – £15 for an hour, but this will likely vary based on where you live. For example, in London you could expect that it would be an the more expensive side.
For end of tenancy cleaning, which would be more thorough and leaving the flat clean for the next tenant, this would cost more. Easily this could be between £100 - £200, depending on the size of the flats.
The exact cleaning will likely include through cleaning of floors, windows, bathrooms, etc – but you may want to clarify the exact areas that any cleaning company would cover for their end of tenancy cleaning.
Obviously for end of tenancy or regular cleaning, the larger a property is, the longer it will take to be cleaned - so it would cost more as a result. Depending on the size of your flats, this may not be a major issue.
If you are able, I would recommend asking a few different local cleaning services for estimates for cleaning flats at the end of tenancies. "

"The cost is dependent on how many bedrooms. Typically in the west midlands the prices range from £90 for a 1 bed flat and £200 for a 4 bed flat. Additional costs will be added for oven, fridge and carpet cleaning but yes, we offer discounts for multiple flats. Where are your flats as the price also depends on location"

"Hello, It depends a lot on the property and the size of it. The price starts from £100. If multiple flats needs to be cleaned then surely there is a discount or a price for all.

Cleaning regularly it is a good investment for the overall health, state of the furniture and floors, carpets, windows and so on as at one point the only reasonable solution would be replacing them which is going to be more costly.
