Cleaning during the covid-19 pandemic
We recommend that everyone living in shared accommodation be extra dilligent with cleaning during this period.
Sit down together and create good routines for cleaning of the common areas that everyone can follow.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health recommend daily cleaning of all frequently touched surfaces, such as bathroom sinks, toilets, door handles and kitchen worktops. Ordinary detergents can be used.
Check lists for cleaning
All tenants must order a free cleaning check of their residence before moving out. An approved cleaning check means that you do not risk having to pay for additional cleaning after having moved out.
This is how a cleaning check is performed:
- You order a cleaning check well in advance of moving, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Together we find a time for the inspection, as close as possible to your date for moving out
- You empty and clean the residence before we arrive
- On the agreed upon date, we go over the residence together and agree on what is OK and what. if anything, has to be improved
- After the check you'll receive a written report stating if everything is OK or if anything has to be improved
- The cleaning will not be checked again until after you have moved out
- Once you have moved out, we will check the residence again
- If it has not been properly cleaned, we will see to it, and you will be charged for the work
It is not compulsory, but we highly recommend that you are present during the check. Please be aware that cleaning checks are only performed on weekdays.
Should you find yourself in a situation where you have bedbugs or any other kind of vermin in your room or apartment, there are two things we want you to do:
- Let us know as soon as possible. Call 73 53 86 60 or send an email to email@example.com. Do not call the Alarm central.
- Do not try to get rid of the problem yourself. We will make sure that professional exterminators deal with it.
