Clean Up Your Home Before Leaving: 2

kitchen-cleaning_300Now that we have talked a little bit about how you should leave your house – let’s go ahead and talk about in detail what you should be doing when all of your furniture is out of the house and you are left with an empty shell of a house.  Firstly, you want to make sure that you paint anything that you changed.

Usually, white is a good color as the new tenants will be able to paint over it.  This is just if you painted anything while you were in your apartment – if you didn’t don’t worry about painting.  You always want to make sure that you leave the place spic and span though. 

That includes breaking out the cleaning supplies and vacuuming down the entire place.  This will leave a good impression on your landlord and you will probably get your full security deposit back!

Clean Up Your Home Before Leaving: 1

spring-cleaning-main_fullWe all move.  Whether you are moving to a brand new house or you are moving into a new apartment, you want to make sure that you leave your old apartment in good shape.  Currently, I am going through a move myself and while I am not exactly moved out yet, I intend to leave the property the way I found it.

That does include some things that you may not want to be doing.  For example, cleaning out everything and making sure that the walls are painted.  This is something that many people forget about, however you always want to make sure that you do not burn any bridges when you move.

In the next blog, we will talk about exactly what you should be cleaning out and what you can leave.
