TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR DEPOSIT BACK IN FULL!
TAKE PHOTOS ON ARRIVAL
A simple but essential task when you first move in- Take pictures of everything, and keep a digital
record with date. This will save you from “He said-She said” when you are ready to leave your rental
property. Check these photos against the inventory provided by your Realtor or Landlord and check
these matches before confirming.
HIRE A REGULAR CLEANER
Unless you have time to regularly clean your home, on a weekly basis, it would be worth the
investment to hire CLEANING EXPERTS USA. This will ensure that your home is kept clean to a
respectable standard. Dusting, mopping and vacuuming on a weekly basis will help and ease the stress
on you. We will deliver CLEAN!
CLEAN YOUR OVEN, FRIDGE AND WINDOW EACH MONTH
Keeping up to date with cleaning your fridge, oven and indoor windows will also help you save time
when it comes to the end of your lease. A regular defrost of the fridge/freezer(ensuring you place
towels on the floor to stop flooding), regular cleaning of windows, and a wipe out of the oven every so
often will help make your life a lot easier when you are met with the time consuming tasks that occur
when you are moving.
KEEP AN EYE ON WEAR & TEAR
A monthly check of the condition of your home will help you keep track of the wear and tear since
moving in. Taking photos and keeping digital record of these photos with dates will also allow you to
plan ahead and help you organize these repairs in advance of your move out date.
INVEST IN WOODEN FLOOR CLEANER
If you have wooden floors, it is important to vacuum, mop and apply a wooden floor cleaner every so
often. For open plan home, it may be also wise to invest in doormats and rug to cover the exposed
areas. This will reduce the chance of marks, dents and scratches.
SCRUB ALL KITCHEN APPLIANCES
It may seem to be common knowledge, but it is important to keep all appliances provided by the
landlord in the same condition that you found them. It is important to keep on top of appliances like
the oven and the fridge, smaller items must not be overlooked. A weekly clean of the toaster,
microwave and coffee maker both inside and outside will help you keep on top of it.
CLEAN YOUR CARPETS MONTHLY
The purchase of a spray on carpet cleaner that can be left for ten minutes and vacuumed is essential.
Monthly will suffice, it is important to do this regularly as it will make a big difference to how your
carpet looks at the end of your tenancy.
REMOVE ANY NAILS AND ARTWORK
If you have hung artwork on the wall in the home, remove these few weeks before your lease end. You
will have time to clean the walls with warm soapy water, and see whether these have stains left, or if
any paint has been removed. You can make your own wall cleaner by combining 1 TEASPOON OF DISH
DETERGENT, and ¼ TEASPOON OF WHITE VINEGAR INTO 34 oz. (1 Liter) of WARM WATER. After you
have washed the wall, you will be able to see if the paint has chipped or you have left any nail holes-
which can be easily fixed with small amount of putty and some paint.
CHECK THE NEED TO REPAINT
Once you have removed all artworks and have begun to pack, boxes ready for the big move, do your
walk in the home and check for any paint chips and marks. Some marks will be simply removed using
the wall cleaning solution. There may be some spots that need repainting.
Before you begin the painting, ALWAYS check with your Landlord/Realtor that they are happy for you
to repaint! Once painting has been approved go to your local hardware store, purchase a few tester
pots or ask paint info to your landlord to perform a patch test.
