Cleaning your rental properties up between tenants can't be avoided. Here are a few things you can do to make the cleanup process less costly and time-consuming overall.
Offer Some Cleanup Perks
One great way to make sure that you don't get stuck having to clean up a huge mess after a tenant moves out is to include some cleanup perks in the lease. You can offer a small percentage of their deposit back in exchange for getting rid of all the trash and cleaning up all the floors and walls before moving out. Or you can offer tenants a gift certificate to a local home décor store if your rental property doesn't need anything more than a thorough cleaning inside after they move out.
Your tenants will likely be more inclined to clean the place up so they have more money to put toward a deposit in a new place or to buy new things for their new home. And providing some perks to your tenants will be a lot less expensive than having to clean all of their junk up yourself after they move out.
Require Regular Inspections
To make sure that your rental properties don't end up damaged or overrun with junk, it's a good idea to require each tenant to accommodate inspections on a regular basis. Either you or a property management company should personally inspect each rental property at least once a year. During the inspection process, you'll have an opportunity to assess any damage that has developed and determine whether the property is being well taken care of.
If excessive junk is piled up in the yard or damage has been done to the house, you can address the problem right so it doesn't get any worse. And if necessary, you'll have an opportunity to kick tenants out who are not taking care of your property so they don't have an opportunity to do even more damage as time goes on.
Hire a Junk Removal Company
Having to haul away any junk that is left behind when tenants move out can be time-consuming, costly, and inconvenient. So when there is a lot of stuff to haul away from a property before a new tenant can move in, consider hiring a junk removal company to do all the legwork for you. Not only will you avoid having to do any of the labor yourself, but you'll also eliminate the need to rent a hauling truck and spend money on gas in order to get rid of all the junk.
A junk removal team can haul away the junk quickly so you can move on to other important tasks that have to be done before a new tenant can move in. And the overall cost of junk removal services will likely be less than paying people an hourly rate in-house to clean the junk up. You won't have to worry about employees getting hurt on the job or filing a worker's compensation claim against your rental company.Share
