Can a Landlord Charge a Cleaning Fee in Florida?

This question is about Florida Security Deposit Law

In Florida, a landlord is allowed to charge a cleaning fee if the rental agreement allows the landlord to do so. Without a provision in the agreement allowing cleaning services to be charged, the landlord is not likely to be able to charge cleaning services against the security deposit.

This is because cleaning will usually fall under normal wear and tear which is not deductible from the security deposit.
