Now that your tenants have moved out, it’s time to inspect the property and assess how much work you have to do to get the home ready for the new tenants to move in. Sometimes landlords enter their property to find that their last tenants have left a huge mess, with materials left throughout the home. To help guide you as you clean up after messy tenants, our dumpster rental team offers expert information in this latest post.

First, Rent a Dumpster

Before you even start moving items out of the building to begin the cleaning process, make sure you have the ideal disposal system. Connect with a local dumpster rental company so that you have access to a dumpster during the cleanup work. This will give you a quick way to dispose of items that would otherwise have to remain in the space until garbage day.

Use Vinegar in the Bathroom

You’ll often be amazed at the difference using household food products can have on your cleaning work. Vinegar is the ideal tool for tough cleaning jobs. Combine one part vinegar with one part water in a spray bottle, and spray down cabinetry and shower doors with the solution. You’ll find that caked on elements begin to come away from the material, and can be wiped free easily.

Remove Stains with Baking Soda and Water

Laminate flooring within your home can be easily cleaned with a combination of baking soda and water. Apply the combination to any stains on the flooring, and then cover the area with a paper towel. Let the paper towel sit for an hour while you take on other cleaning duties. You should be able to go back to the area and wipe the stain away with ease.

Clean Walls with Vinegar and Water

One of the most common problems landlords face is entering an apartment and finding that the walls are covered in nicotine stains from the tenant smoking in the property. These types of stains can be cleaned with a combination of vinegar and water. Take the time to go over all areas of the wall to ensure that the stain and smells have been completely removed.
