Areas to Cover in Your Rental Cleaning

Areas to Cover in Your Rental Cleaning

When cleaning a rental property, it’s important to cover all aspects of the area.

As tenants move in and out, it is essential to keep your property clean and pristine. You want to protect your rental properties and make sure they are safe and sound for your present and future residents. When you prepare for the next tenant to move in, make sure to cover both the big and the small areas in your rental cleaning.


The air we breathe is one of the most crucial components of our health. Our homes should have the best air quality possible. The source of excellent ventilation, healthy humidity, and healthy air is the HVAC unit. Your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioning unit can become dirty over the years. Should dirt build up inside the system or the ductwork, the machine will have to work harder to function, and its lifespan will shorten. If need be, have a professional come to evaluate your rental’s HVAC unit.


Appliances like the refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine can greatly impact a rental as well. If not properly maintained, any of these machines can develop foul, musty odors due to water damage, mold, and mildew. Rental cleaning is truly excellent when the cleaners reach every nook and cranny of a space, including in the crevices between appliances and their undersides. Dirt and dust can build up a lot underneath the refrigerator over the years.


Clean carpets and smooth, hardwood floors give your rental property freshness. No tenant wants to see stains or scuff marks on the flooring. If your last tenant left such mementos behind, a professional restoration and cleaning company could take care of restoring whatever type of flooring you have. Some, like North Arundel Contracting, can also install new flooring if you like.

Walls and Ceilings

Besides scrubbing the walls and ceilings with some warm, soapy water, clear up any dents or marks you see as well. You may even want to give your rental a fresh coat of paint. A calm, off-white may be your best neutral. 

Structures and Emergencies

Meanwhile, anything from the windows, water pipes, sewage, and insulation may also need maintenance from time to time. Whether you see a leak in the bathroom or notice a draft by the window, North Arundel Contracting is your one-stop, 24/7 shop for all of your general contracting and emergency restoration needs in central Maryland.
