Sometimes, when a tenant leaves, it is relatively simple to clean up. You can come in, vacuum, use a carpet cleaner and be done. Unfortunately, sometimes former tenants leave a lot larger mess for you to clean up. When that happens, you need to call in the professionals to help you quickly clean up your property so you can get it back on the market.
If your former tenants left a lot of trash and belonging behind, you need to call in local cleanup services. They can come in and remove all of the trash and rubbish so you do not have to deal with it. Most debris removal services charge based on how much volume they haul away from your rental property. They will even drop off usable items to local charities so unnecessary waste does not go to the landfill.
After you have someone come in and take care of all the rubbish that was left behind, call in a home cleaning company. In under a day, a home cleaning company can come in and deep clean your rental property. They can wipe down the walls, clean the cabinets and make your floors shine.
Once you have had a cleanup service and a home cleaning service come through, you can then take your usual cleaning steps after a tenant moves you. You can clean the carpets yourself or you can also hire someone to come in and clean the carpets for you. Make sure you double check the house and make sure everything is clean.
Finally, make sure the outside of your property looks good too. Cut the grass and pull up any weeds you can see. Plant some flowers to make your rental property look inviting. When your house looks good on the inside and the outside, you are more likely to attract high quality tenants.
After your rental property is finally clean, you can list it for sale. Make sure you thoroughly investigate any potential tenants and really look into their rental history. Calling references is a great way to ensure that your next tenants will treat your property right and will not trash it when they leave.
