We have settled into a routine of conducting apartment inspections on the days that we do not have any other assignments. We have to plan these well in advance, however. The extra keys to the apartments are at the mission office. We when we are at he mission office, we try to pick up some keys to use until the next trip to the mission office. The problem with this approach is that sometimes we have the key to an apartment, and someone else needs to get into the apartment.
Today was one of those days without other assignments, so we inspected two apartments. At least we did not have to drive a long way to do this. One of the apartments we inspected is in our apartment complex; the other is in Sarasota only a few miles away. For most of the inspections, it takes us longer to drive to the apartment than to conduct the inspection. These were exceptions.
It would have been nice had they been exceptionally clean, but they weren't. They were not bad, mostly just cluttered and untidy. That is more a state of mind than a reliance on cleaning skills. We need to do better at teaching that "cleanliness is next to Godliness."
