Curb appeal is an essential element in keeping your Memphis rental building rented out and successful. Renters want a house that is kept in good condition and gives a great first impression. A desirable home in which they can feel secure and be proud of at the same time. A clean and maintained property is the key to a successful rental experience, which is why consistent window cleaning is such a significant part of any property management plan.
Clean windows yield a number of bonuses for landlords and renters alike. The most visible benefit is producing an impressive first impression of the property. First impressions can make a real difference when it comes to attracting quality renters. Minor smudges and dirt may look to be inconsequential, but potential tenants may correlate dirty windows with a landowner who begrudgingly spends little time and money on property maintenance, ultimately influencing their decision to rent the residence.
Regular window cleaning extends the life of the windows themselves. Windows, like all other elements of a house, must be washed regularly. 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 asking your tenants to accomplish this job for you is not the best plan. Tenants might fail to make use of suitable cleaning tools and materials and as a consequence wreck the windows even further. Or they might end up hurting themselves as they make an effort to wipe 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. Using ladders to complete property maintenance tasks is not an intelligent management practice on account of the growing liability of tenants.
