Landlords know better than anyone just how rough tenants can be on a property – especially when they rent it for long periods of time. And while it’s possible for any room to get trashed, few undergo as much wear and tear as the kitchen.
Knowing how to quickly conduct a deep clean between tenants can make a huge difference. Here are a few tips to help you make the process faster and more efficient.
1. Require Tenants to Clean Before Vacating
If you want to get a head start on your cleaning, make sure the lease agreement requires tenants to clean the property before moving out. They won’t do a perfect job, but they’ll usually make the property look decent. You can then go in and clean up what they’ve left behind.
2. Start With Repairs & Maintenance
The last thing you want is to clean the property and then make a huge mess by cutting into drywall to fix a hole in the wall. So, before cleaning, address any repairs and maintenance issues that exist.
3. Choose the Right Cleaning Supplies
The right supplies make all the difference when cleaning – especially when it comes to kitchen cabinets. According to Kitchen Cabinet Kings, it’s best to stay away from harsh chemicals and instead use everyday household items like dish soap, baking soda, and vinegar. You’ll also find that it’s helpful to have a variety of sponges, cloths, rags, scrubbers, and Magic Erasers on hand to take care of all the nooks and crannies.
4. Be Sure to Dust
Before getting too far into the cleaning process, be sure to dust the high surfaces: The top of the refrigerator, cabinets, and trim work are known for collecting filth. If you wait until the end to do this, you’ll send dust all over the countertops and floor.
5. Hit the Appliances
Even if your previous tenant attempted to clean the kitchen appliances, you’ll find that they’re most likely still pretty filthy. Spend some time on the refrigerator, oven, microwave, stovetop, dishwasher, and coffee maker. Your next tenant will notice and appreciate how well cared for the appliances are.
