Cleaning Tips for Moving Out

If you’re a renter, then you most likely will have to prepare for a move-out inspection in order to get your full deposit back. Here are a few tips on making sure you don’t miss a thing so that you aren’t charged any damage fees after moving out.
  • Remove all staples and nails you have in the walls, ceiling or doors.
  • Use a magic eraser all-purpose scrubber to remove any scuff marks on walls, floors, doors, etc.
  • Remove all the shelves and drawers from your refrigerator and freezer, and place them in the dishwasher, then wipe down the interior.
  • Use oven cleaner to remove any baked on food that may be in the bottom or sides of your oven. Make sure to keep your windows open for this!
  • Use a multi-purpose cleaner to wipe down interior and exterior of cabinets.
  • Check light fixtures for bugs or built-up dust.
  • Clean out all of the sinks with either multi-purpose cleaner or powdered cleaner, depending on whether it’s stainless steel or porcelain. Be sure to scrub around the edges where build-up lurks.
  • Thoroughly clean the tub and toilet with a safe, powder bathroom cleaner.
  • Wipe down any closet shelves and built-in mirrors.
  • If you have any carpet stains, treat them with a spot-treatment spray and a vacuum.
  • Use oil soap to clean wooden floors.
  • Clean all windows, window ledges and blinds thoroughly.
  • Take pictures of the apartment and keep for your records in the event that your landlord or apartment complex accuses you of damaging the place.
