How to Properly Clean your Rental when Moving Out

 In Apartment Living

So the time has come to move out of your apartment at Legacy Court Apartments in Midvale. When moving out of your apartment there are a few things you need to make sure you do in order to successfully get your deposit back. Making sure the apartment is clean and free of any damage is a must. Below we have provided you with some tips when it comes to properly cleaning your apartments when you are moving out.


The Kitchen

The kitchen will be one of the places that needs the most attention when it comes to moving out. Take time to thoroughly clean all of the appliances that will be staying in the home. Wipe down all surfaces including the insides of the stove, fridge, microwave, and cupboards. Using special cleaners made to clean the appliances can make your job a whole lot easier.


Windows and Walls

All the surface areas in your previous home will be the ones that are most noticeable to those moving in or your landlord doing your move-out inspection. Use Windex to clean all the windows in your home. Make sure you remove the dust and grime that has built up on the window sills. While you don’t need to scrub the surface of your walls, you will want to make sure they are suitable. Adding some fresh paint may be necessary. Spackle any holes in the walls remaining from the pictures you had hanging there.


Don’t Leave Anything Behind

As you are cleaning make sure you check all closets, drawers, and cupboards for anything you may have accidentally left behind during the move. When living in a rental, your landlord may charge you an additional fee for removing any items you may have left behind. The only acceptable thing to leave behind would be a roll of toilet paper for the next occupant.



Next to the kitchen, bathrooms will need some intensive cleaning as well. Scrub down the toilet and bathtub until there isn’t any residue left. Remember to wipe down the counters, sinks, and the cupboards. Bathroom accessories tend to leak and leave sticky messes. Make sure you scrub down everything you can.


Having a clean apartment when you leave will allow you to get your deposit back and have an awesome recommendation from your previous landlord. Following the steps above will help you in making sure your apartment is up to moving out standards.
