Getting as much of your security deposit back as possible is an important
and often confusing prospect for anyone, whether you’re a student
moving out of your first place or a young professional moving to a new
location. We’ve put together some cleaning tips to help cut down
on the cleaning costs your landlord charges you. It’s important
to remember to take pictures of all your hard work – once you hand
in your keys, it’s your landlord’s word against yours about
the cleanliness of your old place!
Floor: Start with a broom to sweep up any large debris before moving on to the
vacuum for the dust and smaller particles, before finishing up with a
mop. If you have any dirty carpets, try some commercial cleaners –
make sure to check the ingredients because you don’t want to accidentally
damage the color with bleach!
Bathrooms: Cleaning your bathroom is always one of the most important things to take
care of throughout your time in your home, but it’s even more important
to give it a deep clean when you’re on your way out.
Walls: Make sure you have some spackle on hand to fill up any holes in the walls
from nails, tacks, hangars, screws, etc. When you’re scrubbing away
any grime, make sure to pay extra attention to the walls in the kitchen
and around any vents.
Kitchen: While you’re already in the kitchen to clean up the walls, it’s
the perfect time to take care of the rest of the area. The most important
thing to remember is to scrub both the inside and outside of everything,
including any cabinets. You never know what may have built up over your
time living there, and you don’t want to leave any stray corners
of grime for your landlord to find.
Windows: Make sure you take the time to wipe down both the inside and outside of
your windows, as well as the tracks, trim, and sills.
