As a landlord, it’s important that your building is up to code. You want to provide your tenants with an ideal living situation, and that can be difficult if you’re not staying on top of routine maintenance.
According to The Cooperator, it’s important that landlords work to keep their buildings free of dirt and other contaminants. One way to do this is by taking the time to do a deep clean in the exterior and interior every so often. The news provider reports spring cleaning is the perfect excuse to get this done. Many landlords think cleaning the exterior every month is excessive, and the news provider suggests making it a biannual event will get the job done.
You’ll want to load up your cleaning carts with all of the essentials you’ll need, such as scrub brushes, disinfectants, soaps and rubber gloves. Tackling the crevices of the building can do a lot in terms of cleaning process. If the building is older, you may want to consider bringing in a professional who has experience, so you don’t affect the structure.
Heritage reports that the condo association is in charge of the outdoor maintenance, taking away the responsibility from tenants. This is why you’ll want to make sure to keep on top of it yourself.
