Your rental property sitting empty and waiting for a new tenant is an opportunity for a thorough inspection and a deep clean. This ensures your property is being well-maintained and ready for viewings.
Have a detailed checklist for the vacancy cleaning process. Focus especially on areas that tenants tend to scrutinise, such as the kitchen and bathroom areas.
Plumbing leaks are one of the most damaging and expensive issues. Floors, walls and ceilings can all be impacted by water damage. If you want long-term success for your property, checking the plumbing should be one of the top things on your checklist.
Carpets should get a good cleaning as they can retain not just dirt, but odours as well. You might also want to replace carpets as this helps with pest control and is a quick way to give your property a new look.
Don’t forget landscaping and not just so your outdoor areas will have extra appeal. Having your property’s yard or garden in good shape is also important for keeping pests away. Keeping up with landscaping and tree trimming is also necessary in keeping up with legislation and avoiding any fines.
Always be sure to hire licensed professionals when having your rental property maintained. Certified tradespeople will have the skills required for the job as well as an understanding of regulations when it comes to safety.
