Too often, property managers invest all their energies on big things that cost a lot of money at the expense of small steps that they can take immediately. When it comes to transforming a residential or commercial property into a magnet for businesses, cleaning is often at the bottom of the list. However, simple actions such as cleaning can bring great results. A clean property can attract more stable tenants who are willing to pay higher rents. If cleaning is done strategically, it can reduce maintenance cost and help elements like flooring last longer, meaning less spend on capital costs. In this article, we will share with you some tips to achieve this result.
Have a cleaning and maintenance checklist on hand
It is always cheaper to and easier to upkeep, then to fix something that was ignored for years. Some routine maintenance is seasonal, such as ensuring the roof is cleared of any debris before winter hits. Others, such as servicing the HVAC system only need maintenance twice a year. A checklist will ensure nothing is neglected.
Keep the common areas clean
The lobby area is where most of your tenants, the employees and future renters frequent daily. It therefore must be clean and organized to the property standard at all times. Don’t forget to maintain the outside of the property because it is the first impression anyone gets of your building. Make sure to regularly have your lawn or grassy areas mowed.
Last but not least, the indoor parking and stairwell also need some love!
