You've had an amazing LBI vacation and now it's time to pack up and hit the road sadly! But wait...before you leave don't forget to tidy up that rental to protect your security deposit! So how much cleaning is required prior to checking out? Here are some tips:

  • Take out the trash and recycling from all the rooms, not just the kitchen

  • Make sure trash is bagged and in cans with lids---don't leave trash outside the cans due to the seagulls attacking it

  • Recycling must be loose, not bagged

  • Avoid co-mingling trash with recycling---the town will not pick it up and the tenant will be charged for a private trash pick up from a local handyman service

  • Remove all food and wipe out the fridge and freezer

  • Dishes washed and put away

  • Beds are made

  • Sweep/vacuum the floors---especially if they are super sandy

  • Give the counter tops and sinks a quick wipe down

While this list isn't all inclusive it's a good guideline.  The change over cleaning companies do not have the manpower to do deep cleanings on change over day. They do more of a touch up. There is no need for the tenant to do heavy scrubbing of showers, bathtubs, toilets, etc but as a general rule, the home should be left neat and tidy.
