The professional cleaner also revealed that window tracks are a notoriously forgotten spot to clean but says property managers often check them first. 

‘Property managers are obsessed with window tracks,’ Kacie said in her TikTok. 

Another place that you should never forget to clean is the outside edges of the shower screen, as the metal frame can attract a build-up of grime or rust. 

Kacie’s top five places to clean before moving out of a rental: 

  1. Ceiling fan and exhaust fan 
  2. Window tracks 
  3. Outside edges of the shower screen
  4. Oven knobs
  5. Interior of the oven 

Before moving out of a rental Kacie suggests cleaning the oven knobs to remove any traces of grease or grime from cooking.   

The final place renters should always clean before moving out is the inside of their oven, Kacie says to scrub the corners thoroughly with a toothbrush.

In another recent TikTok Kacie revealed the best way to clean an oven, that is both better for your health and uses no toxic or caustic chemicals.

Before moving out of a rental Kacie suggests cleaning the oven knobs or dials to remove any traces of grease or grime from cooking

To do, she first poured one cup of boiling water and one cup of vinegar into a tray and placed it inside a hot oven for 20 minutes.  

She then scraped the ‘mushy’ grime and grease right off with a scraping tool and let the oven cool before she scrubbed it with scourer lathered in dishwashing liquid to increase the metal shine. 

Kacie also suggests using a scourer on the oven racks and to use a blade throughout the cleaning process if necessary.
