In my opinion your property manager is not doing either word of their job description.

They need to get off their dead offices, change the locks, file the eviction paperwork, and send a letter to the tenant's command. Anything else, including phone calls, is just wasted air. Once they've complied with local legal requirements for ensuring the lease is terminated and the tenants have vacated, then they can start worrying about cleaning the carpets. But if that's their first concern then, to put it politely, their priorities are out of order.

I'm sorry that everyone's timing sucks here. Hopefully you encounter these former tenants on your deployment where you can have a little heart-to-heart discussion with them about landlord-tenant responsibilities...
