Landlord inspections: what are they allowed to inspect when they come in? Our landlord decided that since we've been living here for 4 years now, he wants to come in and inspect our apartment (I assume for damage and cleanliness).

What is he allowed to actually do in this inspection? Just check out what's in plain view? Open cabinets, closets, and storage boxes? Peek behind couches?
While the house is of average tidiness for a wage-slave and a student who want to relax when they get home, other than the random clothing on the floor in the bathroom and bedroom the place is clean, and nothing is a fire hazzard. However, our closets are in a perpetual state of disarray and our spare bedroom is packed full of storage boxes full of books, clothing, and craft supplies. We plan on being there when the inspection is done and he's given us plenty of notice about his plans to come in (letting us pick the day), but I don't want him coming in and telling us we need to organize our closets or wanting to open boxes if he's not allowed to do so.
