Every River Park rental property owner knows that curb appeal is fundamental in making sure that their properties are rarely unoccupied and always earning them money. Renters take pride in having a home that is always kept in good condition and looks pleasant too. One in which they can sit back and enjoy the comforts of the home and be satisfied with it. A clean and maintained property is the key to a successful rental experience, which is why regular window cleaning is such an essential part of any property management plan.
Clean windows give many advantages for property owners and tenants equally. The most visible benefit is creating a memorable first impression of the house. First impressions can make a real difference when it comes to attracting quality renters. Minor smudges and dirt may look like no big deal, except potential tenants may associate dirty windows with an owner who pinches on property maintenance, consequently influencing their decision to rent the property.
Regular window cleaning extends the life of the windows themselves. Windows, like all of the other elements of a property, must be cleaned on a regular 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 expecting your tenants to see to this for you is not the best idea. Tenants may fail to use proper cleaning tools and materials, thus damaging the windows further. Or they may end up injuring themselves as they try and 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 maximized liability of tenants that are utilizing ladders to accomplish property maintenance tasks is not a clever management practice.
