Move – Out Cleaning Guide

Mission Realty, LLC, inspects the turnover unit for cleaning and damages after the keys are returned. We do not allow tenants to return to the unit and perform extra cleaning after the inspection. Licensed professionals will be dispatched at the tenant’s expense for all items requiring attention. Please utilize this guideline to increase the level of cleanliness within your rental unit and to afford yourself the opportunity to recoup the maximum amount po ssible form your damage deposit. The residence must be completely cleaned of all personal items, person debris, and cleaning items and restored to move -in condition (inside and out) prior to check out, less normal wear and tear and any owner/agent approve d tenant improvements, before the walk -thru move -out inspection is done.
