A well-maintained rental is a good rental.
Cloths and rags are great for cleaning. When you need a soft cloth, reach for a microfiber fabric.
For cleaning impervious surfaces, pots, pans, countertops, etc., sponges are a must-have.
For floor cleaning, soaking up liquid and wiping away dust, a mop is essential.
Sweeping is useful especially for cleaning at the corners and edges.
For dust and dirt that a broom will miss, you can thank your lucky stars that the vacuum cleaner was invented to suck it up.
Dry cleaning sponge
Plungers are necessary to clear up a blockage or otherwise remove an obstruction. While there are plungers made for sinks, it’s more likely that you’ll want to have plungers for toilets. Trust us, one of the last phone calls you’d even want to receive is from a guest complaining that the toilet is stopped up.
While you usually see people using squeegees on their car windshield, they are handy for window and floor cleaning in houses, too.
Shovel, rock salt or sand
If your rental is in or near a ski resort, chances are you’re going to need to keep your driveway and patio from icing over and snow from piling up. The shovel is necessary for removing excess snow, while you’ll need to spread rock salt and sand over ice to prevent skidding.
In case the smoke detector, remote controls, or wall clock need new batteries, it’s a good idea to have extras.
Supply caddy (bin)
Given that most of the above items are not in daily use, you’ll need to store them in something. Enter the caddy, a container where you’ll organize and transport many of your maintenance supplies.
NOTE: These products are to be used only as directed. It is important for you to store them in safe places out of children’s reach.
