Housing Keeping Questions

What is considered good housekeeping?

The Housing Authority expects you to keep a clean and orderly home. Good housekeeping not only enhances your homes appearance but also helps prevent fires and keeps insects and other pests away. Some examples of good housekeeping include:

  • Cleaning grease and spilled food or drinks from your oven, countertops and floors immediately after the incident occurs.
  • Keeping your floors, windows, counters, and cabinets clean at all times.
  • Keeping the inside and outside of your refrigerator clean by wiping it down with a damp cloth. Also, remember to throw out outdated food items.
  • Scrub your tub(s), shower(s), and toilet(s) regularly to ensure that they remain clean and sanitary.
  • Throw away your kitchen garbage and other household trash daily.

What will happen if my home is poorly kept?

If your home is dirty, cluttered or otherwise poorly attended, you will be warned and expected to correct the problem immediately. You may also be required to attend special classes to enforce better housekeeping habits. If the problem is not corrected or continues, you may be evicted under the terms of your lease agreement for failure to maintain your unit.
