All residents must clean their own room/apartment when moving out. In the checklist you will find a complete overview of what to clean.

Order cleaning check

Remember to order a check of the final cleaning on My page.

The order must be made well in advance and no later than 14 days before your last contract day. The check itself can be performed on the day you move out (the Friday before, if you move out on a Saturday or Sunday).
