Top LBI Rental Questions Lets Talk Housekeeping Upon Check Out
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.
