Charge tenant for carpet cleaning?

Is it normal to charge for the carpets to be cleaned after a tenant moved out?  It doesn't say anywhere in the lease but then he did have a dog and 2 cats he didn't tell us about..

The issue here would be "normal wear and tear". If there are stains and/or odors that are present, that were not present before your tenants moved in, that would probably considered beyond "normal wear and tear". In that case, I would think that you may be able to charge for carpet cleaning.
I would agree that you likely could charge for the cleaning, particularly since you were never told about the animals in the unit.
