explaining the unexpected things that tenants should

consider if they don’t want to lose money after moving out.

“For those of you that don’t know … the longer it takes

the cleaning crew to clean your apartment, the more

you get charged and the less of your deposit you get back”.

she frequently finds uncleaned — .

including blinds, the bottoms of stovetop

burners and the inside of refrigerators.
