Tacoma Rental Property Cleaning Guide:
Moving out of a Tacoma rental property from Spinnaker Property Management is easy as can be!
Spinnaker Property Management is here to provide you with the ultimate cleaning guide for moving out of your Tacoma rental property. With this guide, we will cover all the necessary steps to properly clean your Tacoma property before handing over the keys. We have compiled our top tips from years of experience in Pierce County property management so that you can rest assured knowing that all areas have been thoroughly cleaned and ready for the next tenants. So, let’s get started!
Make Sure You Have Given Notice to Spinnaker (Or Whoever You Rent From)
It’s important to remember that, when you are leaving a rental property, you must give your property manager or landlord a minimum of 20 days notice prior to vacating. This allows them time to find a new tenant and make any necessary repairs or preparations for the next renter. It also gives you time to properly prepare for the move-out date and make sure that all areas of the property have been cleaned according to their standards.
If you fail to provide your property manager with proper notification, you may be liable for paying rent until they are able to find a new tenant. So be sure to send your property manager property notification at least 20 days before the move-out date and review your contract to brush up on the move out details.
Do You Have the Right Cleaning Supplies?
Gathering the right cleaning supplies is key when moving out of a Tacoma rental property. You will want to make sure you have all the necessary tools and products in order to deep clean the space from top to bottom. Start by stocking up on all-purpose cleaners, sponges, paper towels, and microfiber cloths. These items should be used for general dusting, wiping down surfaces, and sanitizing.
If your Tacoma property has hardwood flooring or tile floors, be sure to pick up a mop that is designed specifically for these types of floors. This type of mop will help prevent any accidental damage caused by using the wrong cleaning tool.
You may also need special products to clean certain appliances like ovens or refrigerators. Make sure to read the instructions carefully as many specialty cleaners require extra steps like waiting time before rinsing or wiping off residue. Additionally, if you are dealing with pet odors or other stubborn smells that refuse to leave, consider investing in an odor neutralizer product specifically designed for this purpose.
By gathering all the necessary cleaning supplies prior to moving out of your Tacoma rental property, you will be able to ensure that all areas are thoroughly cleaned and ready for the next tenants.
*It is important to note that all Spinnaker properties require tenants to have homes cleaned professionally prior to handing in the keys. This includes carpets, draperies, blinds, all surfaces – as outlined in the lease agreement.

Have You Grabbed All Your Stuff?
Before you hand over the keys to your Tacoma rental property, make sure to do one last walk-through. This final look-over will help ensure that you have not left any of your personal belongings behind. Start by going room-by-room, checking closets, drawers and shelves to make sure nothing has been missed. Pay special attention to any large items of furniture or appliances that you may have moved in when you first arrived at the property.
Check the yard to make sure no outdoor furniture, garden tools or toys were left behind. Taking one last look around the Tacoma rental property will give you peace of mind knowing that everything has been properly gathered before handing over the keys for good.
