Keeping the house spotless

I just can't relax unless the house is clean. I recently broke my ankle and have been laid up while my family keeps making a mess all around me. It was driving me mad so I have been getting in a cleaning service 3 times a week just to make sure that the house isn't destroyed by the time I can move again. I am starting this blog to keep me occupied and to help out the rest of the mums out there that have had similar accidents and need to keep sane while their house is turning messy around them!

3 Cleaning Tips to Help Rent Your Vacation Property Fast

Keeping your vacation property clean is the first step to attracting tenants during the holidays. Also, it helps to prolong the life of the appliances, furniture and furnishings and saves you from incurring repair costs every time you need a new tenant. Deep cleaning before advertising your property can help you rent it fast. This is because even the photos you post online will showcase a well-maintained home where every person would love to spend their vacation. Here are some few cleaning tips that will help you rent the property fast.

Deep clean carpets and mats

Carpets are often exposed to food and drink spills which cause dirt and stains. When spills are left unattended, they seep into the carpet fibres and backing, making it hard to remove them with a simple vacuuming job. Eventually, they will damage the fibres and shorten the lifespan of the carpet. Deep cleaning your carpets helps get rid of the most hardened stains that have penetrated the material. It leaves a clean and fresh-smelling carpet that your new tenants will love and appreciate.

Remove pet and human hair

Everyone sheds some of the hair on their heads and body. Furry cats and dogs drop even more, and this hair is left on the floors, couches, bed, and even the bathroom. If you don't have restrictions against bringing pets to the vacation rental, it is likely that the previous tenants and their furry friend left strands of hair around the house. Hair can be gross, particularly if it's stuck in the bathroom and sink drains. Carry out an intensive cleaning exercise to get rid of all the hair on the furniture. Vacuum the upholstery, mats, and bed, and clean the plumbing drains. Make sure that the shower drain is not blocked with hair and is draining water correctly.

Wipe down appliances

Dirty appliances can turn away potential tenants from your vacation rental. Kitchen appliances with food and grime stuck to them act as breeding grounds for bacteria, and this can have health implications for your new tenants. Clean all the appliances in the home, starting from the kitchen. Wipe down the countertops, splashback, and cabinets. Clean the oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. A clean house will keep away bugs like roaches and rodents, and this will save you from incurring pest extermination expenses.

Maintaining a clean vacation property will attract tenants fast and also earn you a good review. Hire a professional cleaner who will thoroughly clean the house, deep clean mats, carpets and linens, and wipe down surfaces to leave a clean and safe abode that's ready for rent.
