Cleaning Apartment Windows
by Jenifer Puett
Should cleaning apartment windows be my responsibility?
I have been renting and living in my apartment for about five years now. I am in the process of moving to another state and part of the rental agreement is that the apartment has to be cleaned in order to get my security deposit back. I cleaned everything including the windows thinking that I didn’t even have too. Then upon inspection, the building supervisor said that my window cleaning job was not good enough and that I should consider hiring a professional window cleaner. Professional window cleaners are expensive and I simply can’t afford the extra expense. I nearly spent two hours cleaning windows inside and out and do not have time to do it again. I know that I’m not a professional but the windows all looked cleaner than they did. Seriously, is it really my responsibility to have the windows professionally cleaned?
