Spring Cleaning Your Sparks Rental Homes

Sparks Property Owner Doing Some Spring CleaningSpring is the period when what is old is made new. As the days lengthen, winter slowly loosens its icy grip, thawed by warm spring rains and a new feeling of liveliness. Spring brings lovely flowers, outdoor amusements, and for rental property owners, an exhaustive list of to-do items. Spring is a favorable occasion to see to it your Sparks rental homes have a clean bill of health and ready for another year. By addressing a few key areas of your property each spring, you can keep your valuable investment fit and profitable for years to come.

An in-depth assessment of your rental home is an ideal way to get the ball rolling on your spring to-do list. Concrete areas including the foundation, driveway, patio, and walkways should be inspected, and any cracks or gaps repaired. Exterior doors and windows need to be checked for cracks and gaps and sealed with caulk or weather stripping if needed. Exterior door hardware should also be evaluated, repairing or replacing any squeaky handles or loose locks. Spring is the best season to clean windows and door screens and to patch up exterior paint. It’s also a smart idea to inspect the roof for missing or damaged shingles and to fix or substitute a new part for broken outdoor light fixtures.

Ensure the yard is included when going over your checklist of spring maintenance items. Spring is the right time to test sprinkler systems and make any necessary repairs. Perimeter fences and gates should be checked and repaired if needed. Spring is also the best time to examine the garbage cans and replace any that are worn out. Ultimately, spring cleaning should make room in the list for landscaping, and spring is a great time to plant new trees and bushes. Decide where you want to plant the trees and bushes and plan what else needs to be changed or added in order to further beautify your yard. Remove dead bushes or tree branches and rake up any leftover leaves. Lawns should be fertilized, and flower beds prepared for summer blooms.

A dumpster or other trash receptacle may be required when dealing with all of the repair and maintenance items. Before making the decision to rent one, it’s a good idea to confirm with the local authorities first. While a dumpster may be a labor-saving method to manage the waste from your spring maintenance and repair checklist, local regulations may not allow dumpsters to be placed in front of a rental house, or may only allow them for a specific length of time.

Spring cleaning items like these contribute a significant part of rental property maintenance. By periodically taking care of repair and maintenance items, you can inflate your rental rates, steer clear of excessive repairs, and keep your tenants pleased with your service.
