Curb appeal is a crucial piece in keeping your Somerville rental house inhabited and profitable. Renters want a residence that is looked after and that looks attractive. This is a property where they can feel at home and take delight in. Frequent window cleaning is a vital part of any property management plan because a clean and maintained property is the key to a successful rental experience.
Clean windows create a good deal of value for building owners and occupants alike. Bringing into being a splendid first impression of the residence is the most visible benefit. First impressions can make a real difference when it comes to attracting quality renters. Potential tenants may liken dirty windows with a building proprietor who is too stingy when it comes to property maintenance. This subsequently affects their decision to rent the house since minor smudges and dirt are not a desirable feature.
Regular window cleaning extends the life of the windows themselves. Windows, like all of the other elements of real estate, must be sponged and rinsed clean on a recurrent basis. 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 requiring that your tenants perform this work for you is not an ideal solution. Tenants may not apply the right cleaning tools and materials and because of that further ruin the windows. Or they could end up harming themselves as they undertake the potentially dangerous task of cleaning 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. Utilizing ladders to perform property maintenance tasks is not a smart management practice because of the increased liability of tenants.
