So I got the keys to my penthouse apartment yesterday and have spent a bit of time there today cleaning and getting ready to move in on Saturday. I was hopeful that there wouldn’t be too much to do when I got it but that was not to be.. Amazing how people can live, really. AND I have cats, rats, pigs, pigeons and dogs messing up MY home normally and am dismayed lol I think what really gets me is the people who lease out the apartments claim to have cleaned it between the last person and me.
Clearly, their idea of cleaning differs from mine:
The cutlery drawer .. now that was a treat .. (And yes, the cutlery is all being put aside in favour of my own!)
(I think the real classy bit here was the mould growing between the drawer and the liner..)
I must admit, the loo wasn’t as bad as it could have been but still – have they not heard of bleach??
Now this – this is special. A crunched up smelly old tea towel under the bathroom vanity. Along with a bunch of hair and dust.
Mm Uh huh yeah sure you had the place cleaned before I got possession. I realise some tenants may well be complete scumbags but the situation is hardly gonna improve if this is how they’re ALL treated!
So, I did a bunch of cleaning (used half a bottle of spray and wipe and a litre of bleach so far lol) today and let off a flea / bug bomb in the room before coming home tonight. JUST in case! And tomorrow I shall go back for more..
Wish me luck!
(I may need it!)
