After sending the last of your belongings with the movers San Diego, you still have a lot of work to do before handing in your keys. Properly preparing your rental for the final inspection process will help you receive most of your deposit back.
Here are five items that you should complete at the end of your rental period.
Check for Hidden Items
Even after placing all your belongings in boxes, you might find hidden items while you’re cleaning up. It is important to remove all of these items to avoid incurring storage fees from the rental agency.
In many jurisdictions, rental agencies are required to keep your belongings on hand for a specific amount of time before putting them up for auction. You’ll be responsible for paying all the fees associated with that lengthy storage period.
Make sure to look on top of your fridge, under your oven, and inside all of the kitchen cupboards to locate hidden items. Also, search around in the bathroom cabinets and drawers, high shelves in the closet, and inside vanities for items to send with the San Diego movers.
Clean All Appliances
The cleaner you leave your rental, the less of your deposit money you’ll have to pay to professional cleaners. Place a cooler full of your food from the fridge in the San Diego moving van to make room for the cleaning process.
Disassemble the fridge shelves and drawers to access all of the nooks and crannies. While the small components soak in the sink, wipe down the inside of your fridge and freezer with a rag covered in cleanser. Dry and reassemble the cleaned parts to make your fridge look as good as new.
Pull the grills out of your oven and spray them down with a degreasing product. Scrub out the top, bottom, and sides of the oven, including the inside door area. Don’t forget to wash off the inside and outside of the toilets, sinks, and tubs.
Wash the Walls
Scrub all your walls clean with a melamine foam pad to remove crayon marks and greasy handprints. The melamine foam also works for scuffmarks created while moving your items out to the moving van.
Wash the walls again with warm, soapy water and a soft rag to remove dust and dirt marks. Although high gloss walls usually come clean in one pass, low gloss paint could require a couple scrubbing sessions.
Scrub the Carpets
After cleaning the walls, scrub the carpet with a professional grade cleaning machine. Use an approved cleanser that loosens dirt and sucks up the aftermath.
If you see heavy stains, consider pre-treating the affected areas the day before running the carpet cleaning machine. Allow the freshly cleaned carpets to fully dry before walking on them again to complete the move out inspection.
Go Over the Move Out Inspection Checklist
Make sure to go through the move out inspection checklist on your own before inviting your property owner up to look. Address any areas that don’t meet the criteria on the checklist to avoid fees taken out of your deposit.
In addition to the areas listed above, you’ll also want to clean the gutters, sweep out the garage, and wipe down the ceiling fans to make the rental look as clean as possible.
