Searching for rental property maintenance tips? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
Flooring can be one of the most expensive investments that a landlord can make in their rental property and if the landlord doesn’t screen and place the most qualified tenant, they could find themselves replacing the carpet in their property every 12 months.
If you don’t want to replace the carpeting in your rental property every 12 months, make sure you follow these simple tips.
Tip #1 – When Laying Flooring, Add A Hard Surface Area At All Entry Points
During the process of laying flowing at your property, you should always add a hard surface area at all of the entry points at your property.
Doing this will encourage your tenants, and their guests, to wipe their feet before entering the property and this one simple tip will greatly reduce the spread of dirt on the carpets inside your property.
Tip #2 – Get The Carpets Professionally Cleaned Once A Year
It doesn’t matter if you just invested in new rental property carpeting 12 months ago, you should have those carpets cleaned at least once a year.
An annual carpet cleaning will stop dirt and filth from becoming fully embedded into the carpet pad and will help to preserve the lifespan of the carpeting as a whole.
Tip #3 – Give Your New Tenant A Good Vacuum Cleaner
One of the best things you can do for new tenants is to give them a new vacuum cleaner when they first move in.
This simple gesture will encourage them to vacuum more often and ensure that they will have the tool that they need to keep the carpet inside your Oregon rental property clean.
