Spring has sprung and now is as good a time as any to focus on the once a year tasks for the season. Here are six simple spring cleaning tips recommended by top Las Vegas property management companies for reviving your rental before the summer.
1.) Light Bright
Lighting makes a huge difference in any space. Brighten up dull lighting by dusting off light fixtures and bulbs. Don't forget, ceiling fans and air-conditioner vents need love too. Removing dirt and dust from those areas helps stop redistributing dust back into the air and help you breathe easier.
2.) Fun with Floors
Whether you have carpet, tile, or wood floors, any area that has that much foot traffic deserves extra TLC. Carpets should be cleaned at least every 12 to 18 months and can be done professionally or you can do it yourself. Check with your Las Vegas property manager or landlord to see if they'll cover the cost of hiring a professional. And be sure you're using the appropriate cleaning products on your hard surfaces so as not to damage and scratch your surfaces. You'll soon have floors so clean you can eat off them!
3.) Window Warriors
If eyes are the windows to the soul, than windows are literally the windows to the soul of your home! And though most people would proclaim that they don't do windows, Las Vegas property managers recommend tackling this task at least once a year. Clean windows allow more light in the home and really brighten up your rooms. You'll be surprised what a huge difference it makes!
4.) Closet Case
Ever have a tough time getting out of the door and off to work? Are messy closets the culprit? If so, organizing your closet is probably the first step to organizing the rest of your rental home. When you rid your space of unused clothes and space hogging items, you'll have more room for storage. You can also organize your clothes and accessories by how you get dressed in the morning so getting out of the door becomes that much easier.
5.) Tackling Tracks
From sliding patio door tracks to the vinyl tracks in your fridge, if there are ridges chances are there's dirt trapped in them. Scrubbing sliding doors, closet doors, drawers, and any type of area with a track makes opening them loads easier and can even help prevent the need for future fix ups.
6.) Scrubbing Surfaces
You know those everyday surfaces you tend to overlook? Las Vegas property management companies recommend a good spring time scrub down. Wash anything from baseboards and door frames to walls and door knobs. Sanitizing those forgotten areas will help keep dust at bay and really give your rental home a polished look.
No matter when you decide to tackle your spring cleaning to-do list, your rental home will certainly shine. Pressed for time? You can devote as little as ten minutes to your tasks. Happy cleaning!
