Week Eight: The Dreaded Clean
You should clean your home before you move. That is the best chance to get that deposit back. Plus, it will prevent any unnecessary charges for damages or cleaning from your landlord.
Further, cleaning can take multiple days depending on the condition of your home. Stock up on soap and other cleaning supplies, grab a friend or two if you can, and make the cleaning as fun and productive as possible. And crank the tunes!
Next, pack the first half of your essentials, such as your kitchenware. You will want to make sure all is washed and dried beforehand.
Lastly, you will likely want to have your landlord inspect the home during this period to ensure you both agree on the condition in which you are leaving it. Plus, it’s easier to resolve disagreements and conduct negotiations face-to-face rather than over the phone.
