What's with those landlords who say the house is a mess even if the place is immaculate?
everyone has their own version of mess or immaculate
you probably can't satisfy them no matter what(other than moving out)
Sometimes they're simply trying to avoid "neat freak" tenants that will be constantly complaining about about trash near the dumpsters, shaggy lawns, dirty hallway carpets, etc.
My cleans and puts everything into these little piles, I clean and find a home for everything as opposed to leaving things aground in little pile. Both have disinfect, wiped, swept, picked up, but i don't considered what she did as actually clean.
