Spring Cleaning Your Jones Rental Property

Jones Rental Property Owner Cleaning the Gutters for Spring CleaningThe essential principles of spring cleaning subsume decluttering, deep cleaning, and organizing. The purpose is to clear away worthless items, clean unobtainable places, and produce a more functional and pleasing living environment. Spring cleaning is a typical practice to welcome the change of season, start over, and bring a sense of renewal and rejuvenation to one’s home.


As a Jones landlord, spring cleaning is important for a vast number of reasons. Before all else, it can help attract and retain tenants by completely making sure the rental property is pristinely clean, organized, and clutter-free. A spruced-up, clean, and well-maintained property can develop a positive impression of probable tenants and make them more forthcoming to renting from you.

How to keep your rental property clean

1.    Start with a thorough property inspection

A detailed and thorough inspection supposes to quest every room and region of the house for evidence of vandalism, wear and tear, or cleanliness issues. Dusting and vacuuming, watching out for leaks or cracks, inspecting appliances, and clearing and organizing up places are all examples.


2.    Deep clean the property

It is imperative to thoroughly clean and sanitize every house nook and cranny, on top of areas ordinarily disregarded at the time of normal cleaning. Examples of such tasks are scrubbing grout, washing windows, cleaning appliances inside and out, shampooing carpets, and dusting and washing walls, baseboards, and other surfaces. Contemplate hiring a professional cleaning service to make sure a job is done well.


3.    Check the HVAC system

Checking and cleaning the air filters, being alert regarding signs of damage or wear, and scheduling a professional maintenance check-up are all parts of seriously inspecting the HVAC system. This step helps make certain the system runs fully, reinforces and boosts indoor air quality, and avoids possible and unacceptable breakdowns during the upcoming heavy-use season.


4.    Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

When you are spring cleaning, test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure each device works efficiently, change batteries where required, and swap any blighted devices. Testing these detectors safeguards everyone’s safety in the home by affording early detection and warning in the fatal event of a fire or carbon monoxide leak.


5.    Check plumbing fixtures

Checking plumbing during spring cleaning signifies inspecting all pipes, drains, and faucets for leaks, blockages, or other signs of damage. Plumbing checks may specifically include flushing the water heater and checking the water pressure to establish that everything is operating without failure and efficiently, avoiding potential water damage and very expensive repairs in due course.


By going through and regularly putting into practice these vital steps to maintain your rental property, you can profitably preserve and support the property’s value and prevent damage to fixtures and appliances. A clean rental property is more charming and enticing to prospective tenants and can help retain existing tenants, and at length, increase rental income.
