Today, I have been vomiting for 4 days. Tomorrow, my landlord is insisting on inspecting my flat. I now either have to clean my house whilst trying not to throw up all around it, or fail my inspection. FML

Or you can simply explain that you are contagious with a life threatening disease and anyone who walks into the apartment will die within seven days. He may even give you the apartment after he hears that. It's a win-win.

If you absolutely cannot get the date rescheduled (which you certainly should be able to by saying you have a contagious illness), surely there's someone you could pay to clean or if you don't have money maybe could ask a friend to help you out. I know if my friend was at risk of losing their place, I would definitely help them out.

You sound like somebody living in the "before" part of an infomercial for products that you strap on like a feedbag, so you can Vomit While You Work!™®

You also don't know the standards their landlord keeps for "clean." For example, my roommates and I had a dispute when we moved in over weather or not to clean behind the flusher on the toilet. It's all a matter of perspective. Plus four days of being sick= four days of not taking out the trash, doing dishes, etc. which can really pile up.

If your solution to a problem ever involves /not having that problem in the first place/, rest assured, you're helping no one by sharing it.

Clean with two buckets. Make sure you keep your cleaning bucket separate from the throw-up one.

Just tell him or her that you are sick and would be willing to schedule as soon as you are well.

I will help you clean edit we live way across the world from each other so never mind ask a friend

I've told my landlord before that I was sick and NOT up for inspection. She's usually pretty understanding and will postpone the invasion for a week if i explain. It's just not understandable if I do it often ;)

You should be keeping it clean anyway

Just puke on your landlord as soon as they enter, problem solved.
