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..

I would agree that you likely could charge for the cleaning, particularly since you were never told about the animals in the unit.
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.
