Arrival and departure

What to check upon arrival and how to do an approved departure cleaning

The first thing to do upon arrival is to check the condition of the room/apartment. If you find something that is not ok, report it immediately by email to kc_housing.dm@kc.lu.se. The comment “It was like this when I moved in” will not be accepted at your departure. 
Read the “Departure cleaning” instructions and follow them carefully.
A good thing to start with is to buy detergents and micro cloths. 

Needed detergents

  • “Allrent” (general detergent)
  • “Fönsterputs” (window/glass detergent)
  • “WC-rent” (for the toilet)

Departure cleaning

Important! Rinse the cloth in between when needed. Don’t use the same cloth in the bathroom/toilet as in the rest of the apartment/room!

  • Spray “fönsterputs” on the window and wipe it dry with a dry cloth, do the same thing on all sides and also on all mirrors. The window/mirror should be clear and without marks after cleaning.
  • Take a bucket of water and add some “Allrent” and wet a cloth that you wring before use
