Nothing you can do about vandalism unless you want to go to the expense of video cameras etc. but be careful and make sure disclose them if you do (had a friend who got in a pissing match with a tenant over privacy issues and cameras).
I change the locks, garage opener codes etc. everytime someone moves out.
Did your rental agreement state they needed to professionally clean carpets and windows? Ours do and state they need to supply a professional receipt (IE not hand written).
