Without a doubt, curb appeal is a crucial aspect in keeping your Live Oak rental homes always earning and ideally, never vacant. Renters long for a home where the upkeep is regular because a clean house is an attractive one. They want a home where they can relax and unwind and be proud of living there. A clean and maintained property is the key to a successful rental experience, and that is why consistent window cleaning is such an essential part of any property management plan.
Clean windows present various perks for that serves both property owners and tenants. The most visible benefit is that it helps create a great initial impression of the house. First impressions can make a real difference when it comes to attracting quality renters. Minor smudges and dirt may seem like no big deal, but then potential tenants may liken dirty windows with an owner who withholds funds on property maintenance, subsequently affecting their decision to rent the property.
Regular window cleaning extends the life of the windows themselves. Windows, like all of the other fundamentals of 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 to assume that your tenants would willingly do this for you is an unwise thought. Tenants may not bother using the correct cleaning tools and materials, and instead of cleaning they damage the windows further instead. Or they may end up injuring themselves as they attempt to clean 2nd story windows.
