Spring Maintenance Tips to Put the Sparkle on Your Rental

Spring Maintenance Tips to Put the Sparkle on Your Rental

Keep Your Investment Looking Good with an Oregon Hard Money Loan

Spring is here.

If you own vacation or rental properties, now is a good time to think about a seasonal “deep clean.”

Your tenants are responsible for regular cleaning and upkeep of their rental unit. But as a landlord, you also have a responsibility to keep your property well-maintained and livable.

Set your tenants up for success with a scheduled spring maintenance routine. Giving your rental property a seasonal once over will give you peace of mind – and help ensure a higher return on your investment.

Make Your Rental Property Shine with a Seasonal Cleaning

Think top down and outside in as you plan your rental property cleaning and maintenance routine.

Roof & gutters: Inspect for any winter weather damage. Repair holes and replace loose shingles. Remove moss build up. Clean and clear gutters.

Power wash: Use a power washer to spray away mold, dirt and mildew left by damp and inclement weather on siding, decks, driveways and walkways.

Lawn & garden: Clean up winter debris and storm damage. Prune trees, shrubs and dead, damaged branches. Pull up old annuals and cut back perennials.

Pests: Insects become more active with warmer weather and pests can make their way inside. Seal exterior cracks, gaps and openings – and bring in professional exterminator services.

Windows: Check window seals for trouble spots and possible leaks. Sweep away debris and cobwebs and give windows a good cleaning to let the light in.

HVAC system: Make sure heating and cooling system filters are clean and being regularly replaced. Once a month is best. Schedule an annual service checkup for optimal operation.

Floors & carpets: Schedule a professional carpet cleaning. Regular cleaning helps keep stains in check and will preserve carpet quality longer.
