Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
Summer is drawing near a close. Students still have a little time to enjoy themselves before school starts back up, but that time is just around the corner. For landlords who may be waiting for the deluge of new tenants moving into apartments nearby local schools, there is a lot of work to be done. There may be repairs or upgrades that need to be made to a rental property before renting it out. In many cases, it is necessary to clean out the rental property before work begins. Then, it is necessary to clean up the place after the work is done but before anybody new moves in. HouseMaids is a residential and commercial cleaning company in Sarasota, Florida, providing a wide variety of help to clients in the area including move out and move in cleaning services. It is important to keep a few things in mind before showing or renting out a property.
Students and their parents want them to live in a place that is clean. Everyone wants that, so it is no big surprise. While it is true many are looking to save what money they can, they are also prepared for the big expenditures that come with living on their own for the first time. If the environment is dusty, has rubbish left over from a repair or upgrade, smells of a previous tenant’s cat or dog or smoke, it can kill a potential renter’s interest. Some will try to cover up an undesirable smell with a variety of products. Professional cleaners know the best way to get the smell out and keep it from coming back though. Even if the apartment or house had a no smoking and no pets policy, it is quite possible a previous tenant broke those rules.
Professional maid services have a thorough checklist they go through, cleaning one room at a time with a single purpose. If one is expecting contractors brought in to patch drywall or fix the plumbing to clean up after their work, the chance are that they will, but it will not be as good as when you bring someone in who has that single focus of making a place clean. The cleaning company should also go over that checklist with the landlord and make sure that the work is satisfactory before moving on.
If an apartment or home has just been cleaned recently, it is possible that the place smells like it has been cleaned. Most people are familiar with the smell of various cleaners. However, those cleaning chemicals can agitate allergies. The same scents can also make it seem like the landlord is trying to cover something up. Have the move in cleaning done with enough time to air the place out or work with a professional cleaner who has access to a wide variety of cleaners and knows how to keep the home smelling beautiful and natural.
