Surface clean condition implies that a home is left clean throughout. When a home is cleaned regularly, it should only require a wipe down and sweep or vacuum at move-out to deliver the appropriate condition. Your Resident Responsibility Guide provides detailed guidelines for surface clean condition. Here are a few to get you started:
- All personal items must be completely removed from the home, storage areas and garage.
- Any items requiring disposal must be disposed of in an appropriate, proper and approved manner.
- Any equipment or feature delivered as part of the home (including appliances, appliance parts, fixtures, hardware, etc.) is returned intact and in proper working order.
- Wall color is not altered or changed, unless previously approved by the Neighborhood Office.
- Carpeted surfaces are vacuumed and free of excess spots or stains.
- All windows are closed and locked with window covering left in the closed position.
- Garbage cans cleaned and placed in garage or storage area.
- All kitchen work surfaces are wiped down and free of excessive grease build-up.
- Refrigerator is wiped down inside and out, empty and free of mold/mildew.
- Range hood, stovetop, oven, drip pans and under burners are wiped down and free of burned-on food and excessive grease.
- Dishwasher exterior is clean.
- Floor is swept and clean.
- All bathroom surfaces are wiped down. All surfaces are free of soap scum, mold, mildew, and dirt build-up.
- Tub/shower is free of mold/mildew and soap scum buildup with the shower curtain removed.
