What are the general resident cleaning guidelines to follow when I move out?

Residents are expected to leave the home in a rent-ready condition in the same or better condition than they received it at move-in.

Below we have listed general cleaning guidelines that Great Jones requires residents to address prior to your move out in order to maximize deposit returns, minimize cleaning charges, and leave your account in good standing.

Your individual lease may have additional requirements per the property owner, please review your own documents for additional details.
