This includes, but is not limited to, excessive cleaning costs, replacement or repairs to the property or any of its contents, the pool, pool deck or grounds. Extreme use of utilities includes, but is not limited to, excessive use of electricity (typically due to having air conditioning on full with external doors open!)
