Make Spring Cleaning Less of a Chore with Our Handy Guide

By |Published On: 30th May 2018|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

Spring has come around once again, and with the arrival of fair weather comes the inspiration to get your house back to the tidy state it was originally in.

To help with this, we have put together a spring cleaning guide. This list is ideal to tick off as you progress, allowing you to be as thorough as you like. By the end of this PDF, you should find your home in such a fine state that not even a speck of dust is left behind!

Landlords, you may find this list useful as a way to prepare your properties between tenancies! Having a spotless property is in a landlord’s best interest, as ideally you will want the house to be ready as soon as possible for viewings. The more appealing the property looks, the faster a new tenancy might be agreed, therefore avoiding any lengthy void periods.

If you do find yourself between tenants, make sure to have Unoccupied Property Insurance, such as the cover that Just Landlords can provide, in order to keep your property safe during void periods.

It is also worth considering that regular checks and maintenance of a property could help to extend the lifespan of fixtures and fittings, therefore helping to reduce overall expenditure on your portfolio.

Largely, it falls to the tenants to clean the property. This can take a few days, depending on the level of constant upkeep, but the hard work will pay off in the end.

The key areas to focus on are:

  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens (including appliances)
  • Living spaces
  • Furnishings
  • Carpets
  • Windows
  • Drawers, cupboard and shelves

Our guide goes into detail, specifying exactly what to do to clean these areas, and is available as an interactive PDF, allowing you to tick the boxes on your device screen, or simply print off for a hard copy.

Whether a homeowner or tenant, by following our guide you will soon find your home looking as neat and tidy as it was the first day you moved in.
