Just a quick question, when the tenants moved in, did you take a security deposit from them, like one month rent or even two, if they had pets did you take an additional amount....
Usually that should cover normal wear and tear and the tenant should be aware when moving in of the fact that if they do not leave the unit the way they found it when they first moved in, you will be able to use some of that security deposit and not return it all to them....
May be if you did not, then for the next tenant you may want to consider that. As far as replacing hardwood,
if it is in really terrible condition???? How about refinishing it?

Hope this helps a little.
