Landlords: Cleaning and Repairing after Move Out

Landlords have a lot of responsibility when it comes to their rental properties and after a tenant moves out is one of the most important times for them. Here are a few things to consider about cleaning and repairing after a tenant moves out.

Repairing

You will need to make the necessary repairs in order to get the property back up to a livable condition. This part can get expensive depending on how much damage was done from the previous tenants. Hopefully, you charged the previous tenant enough in the form of a security deposit to cover the cost of most of the damages. If you can do the work yourself, you will be able to save a significant amount of money. However, you may have to hire a contractor to perform the work. Fix any holes in the wall, repair doors, replace carpet, and repair anything else that is damaged.

Cleaning

You should also go through the property and deep clean it. In most cases, it would be worth your money to hire a cleaning crew to come in and completely clean the property. However, you can also do this yourself and save some money with a little hard work.
