Cleaning Tips to Help You Get Your Apartment Security Deposit Back

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.
