I am a landlady and always recommend http://gclean.com/
Not the cheapest, but they have been around a while in an industry full of fly by night operators, and have never let me down.
The last time tenants chose not to take my advice and used someone they found off the internet, it was a disaster. They phoned me to ask if they could delay check out till 9.00pm as cleaners had turned up late. When I arrived I found the cleaners half way through and the tenants had disappeared to the pub. I joined them, and when we returned to the house at 11.00pm the cleaners had left but the house was still not ready.
Tenants had to pay me the cleaning money and then hope they could get a refund from their hopeless contractor.
