Carpet cleaning on move-out tenants responsibility?

Do other landlords out there charge a tenant for carpet cleaning when they move out?

Build it in your rental agreement that carpets are to be clean on move out - or "like kind condition" and have pictures of move-in conditions.

 If a tenant has been a long term tenant, the carpet can become a little bit dirty or deteriorated and that becomes part of wear and tear and I don't charge for that. If the tenant is a short term tenant, and they leave it dirty or heavily used, then I would charge the cleaning.
That sounds quite okay. Tenants may have children and all that may spoil Your carpet and so for short term You can't pay it for everyone.
