Each resident is responsible for keeping their suite in a neat and sanitary condition. Vacuum cleaners are available from the RAs. The kitchen and washroom areas of each suite will be lightly cleaned on a rotational basis. Staff will clean the shower, sink, toilet, and floor in the washroom. They will wash the floor in the kitchen and will clean the sink and counter, unless there are dishes or food left on the counter or in the sink. They are not responsible for washing dishes or removing garbage. If the staff are not able to enter your room due to the deadbolt, they will skip your room until the next time they are scheduled to clean it. Any deficiencies and problems will be reported.

Garbage and recycling:
On a regular basis, garbage and recycling must be removed from the suite and discarded in the garbage/recycling room (located on each floor).
