Cleaning inspection

Once you move out, our staff will visit the apartment or your shared kitchen to see if everything has been cleaned properly, to make sure that the next tenant gets a nice start to his or her stay. If it hasn't been cleaned properly, we will see to it, but you will be charged for it. That's not pleasant for you, and we have to spend time and resources that are better spent elsewhere. This is why we offer everyone who wants it, a cleaning check before moving out.

If you want a cleaning check, contact the cleaning department by emailing boligrenhold@sit.no. Together we will find a date and a time for the check. Please note that checks are only done on weekdays. Before we arrive, you clean your apartment or your room and common areas according to the check lists on found on this page, then we go through everything together on the agreed upon day.

An approved cleaning check guarantees that you have cleaned properly and that you will not be charged extra for the cleaning when you move out.


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:

  1. Let us know as soon as possible. Call 73 55 16 52 or send an email to boligrenhold@sit.no. Do not call the Alarm central.
  2. Do not try to get rid of the problem yourself. We will make sure that professional exterminators deal with it.
