When it comes to your Toano rental property, curb appeal is an important piece in keeping them occupied and lucrative. Renters want a property that is neat and orderly. This is a place where they can feel happy and take satisfaction in. Constant window cleaning is a major component of any property management plan because a clean and maintained property is the key to a successful rental experience.
Clean windows produce many benefits for landowners and tenants alike. The most visible benefit is making a special first impression of the home. First impressions can make a real difference when it comes to attracting quality renters. Minor smudges and dirt can look like a frivolous task, but potential tenants may lump together dirty windows with a homeowner who pinches pennies on property maintenance, consequently having an effect on their choice to rent the house.
Regular window cleaning extends the life of the windows themselves. Windows, like the other elements of a home, must be routinely wiped clean. Acid rain, hard water, and oxidation are all factors that damage window panes. Regular cleaning can help keep environmental contaminants at bay and your windows sparkling for years to come.
Industry experts recommend cleaning residential windows once or twice a year. But presuming that your tenants will do this chore for you is not a good idea. Tenants could use unacceptable cleaning tools and materials, which could tarnish the windows further. Or your renters could end up wounding themselves as they strive to sponge and rinse clean 2nd story windows.
Falls involving ladders are one of the leading causes of serious household injuries. This guide to ladder safety from the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) outlines over a dozen safety guidelines for ladder use, many of which your tenant may not know or follow. The growing liability of tenants using ladders to do property maintenance tasks is not an intelligent management practice.
