Deep Cleaning

Now, for the deep cleaning part. It is necessary to be very picky when checking everything before the inspection. Put yourself in the landlord’s shoes. Would you give the deposit back if you found x thing in bad condition? Be your own inspector. Check behind every furniture and appliance. Check below the deck.
