  • I'm pretty sure that is how it is anytime you move out of any rental. I remember having to clean the apartments that we rented back in the day and they were very anal about how clean they had to be.

  • I have only lived in military housing and never have they been this anal, lol. The thing is that they bring in a cleaning crew once you are gone! Way too much work to get done before leaving on friday. Having 2 kids doesn't help either. I have always been a very clean person and have always kept my house clean, but this is crazy!

  • I have rental property and I love it when military families leave. They really know how to leave a place. Regular people have no idea what to do.

  • Military housing is too be left as clean as a barracks buiding. Spotless...they only send in a cleaning crew when someone doesn't bother to do what they are supposed to. Also, if it isn't clean acccording to their specifications it can reflect on the person who is in the military, yes even dirty blinds. They have been providing you housing (even if it isn't the best) and this is one of the things they expect in return. Good Luck
