Let’s Clear the Air
If your rental property has gotten a little musty because of winter, then now’s the time to put in a clean, new filter. This is also a good time to have the heating and air conditioning system inspected and tuned up for the upcoming warm weather. You want to make sure the system is operating at peak efficiency to keep electric costs low. Make sure that you open up the windows for a time to bring in fresh air. Your guests will definitely appreciate this gesture as the property would end up smelling nice and properly maintained. Through the busy cooling season Southern Coast Management will inspect and replace filters as necessary.
Inspect the Outside
Many rental property owners look forward to the summer months. It’s the time of year when the Grand Strand vacation homes are rented heavily. Remember to inspect the outside of the property for general wear and tear on the landscaping and verifying that outdoor fixtures are in good condition. Also, check for debris accumulating in the gutters or for the hard to reach windows that need cleaning. Power washing siding, porches and sidewalks are huge for the important to make the best first impression. Check wood around windows and doors for weather-related deterioration. Look at the roof to make sure no shingles are lifted or missing.
Carpet and Tile Cleaning
The carpets and tiles should be professionally cleaned at least every 12 months. Southern Coast Management can recommend a vendor who could do this for you. If you are cleaning the ceramic tiles yourself, focus on one room at a time, so that you’ll have the peace of mind that the whole rental property is thoroughly cleaned.
Spring Cleaning and Maintenance
It has been said that maintenance and repair are more practical and affordable instead of replacing equipment. Southern Coast Management can help with minor repairs or recommend vendors for larger projects.
Spring is just around the corner, and as a landlord, it’s the perfect time to clean your property! Put away those winter jackets and get ready to make your rental property look better with these cleaning tips.
