WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Kitchen:


        STOVE - All the obvious areas AND the exhaust fan filter (located above the stove).

        MICROWAVE - Please remember to clean the inside and outside of the microwave.

        DISHWASHER - Remove debris and wipe inside surfaces. *Tip: run your dishwasher one final time with nothing
        in it to make sure it is nice and clean.

        SINK - Clean sink and parts (stopper, strainer, faucet, etc).

        CABINETS & DRAWERS - Remember to remove all lining material and wipe down the drawers and cabinets inside & out.


        *Clean areas between appliances, walls and cabinets, if reachable



Bathroom:
        SHOWER - Thoroughly clean the shower and tub with a household cleaner. Sometimes a toothbrush comes in
        handy for those hard to reach places….and no, we don’t mean your roommate’s *Tip: fill the tub with hot water
        and Ajax, let it drain, and use a Magic Eraser (we are big fans of this product, if you haven’t discovered it yet!)



        SINK - Clean the entire sink and counter with a household cleaner. Please don’t forget to clean the faucet. For
        hard to remove scum, try using that trusty toothbrush and cleaner.
