Landlords benefit from a good clean
Posted on October 20, 2015 by adam in Carpet Cleaning
As a landlord you’ll know that one of the main costs involved in renting property (whether domestic or commercial) is buying and replacing furniture, fixtures and fittings. Although many tenants treat rented properties respectfully, some don’t and all properties are subject to the general wear and tear that’s inevitable when you let out premises.
Cleaning your property between tenancies is a really cost effective way to improve the quality and attitude of your tenants and reduce the costs of replacing items like carpets and curtains.
As one set of tenants moves out, a comprehensive clean that leaves your property smelling and looking appealing will create a good impression at viewings and should attract the right kind of tenants – people hoping to work or live in a clean and welcoming environment and reducing the likelihood of problems down the line.
Regular cleaning (especially in commercial properties) can also help prevent expensive maintenance and repairs. In many cases the relatively small outlay required for professional cleaning makes sound financial sense as it prolongs the life of property assets and encourages longer tenancy agreements.
Remember tenants will be expected to leave the property in the same condition they found it – so if they start with a nice clean property they’re more likely to look after it and finish their tenancy with it in the same condition.
Tips for buying carpets and upholstery
Carpets and curtains top of the list of landlord expenses so as well as regular cleaning it’s important to choose wisely in the first place:
• Reduce costs by doing some research before you buy. Ask for samples and take your time deciding. If you have lots of properties you should be able to negotiate a good discount for buying in bulk on both materials and fitting.
• Look for material that’s hardwearing and easy to clean – if it’s more expensive in the short term you’ll make your money back from the fact that it will last longer.
• Think about how the space is inhabited – is a cream carpet (however cheap) a good idea? Mid tone browns and greys night prove a lot more practical.
• Find a balance between aesthetics and durability so you don’t end up having to replace items at the end of every tenancy.
