Spring is the perfect time to get your rental property in order and make sure it’s in tip-top shape for an upcoming tenant. From deep cleaning to organizing, here are some tips and tricks to help you spring clean your rental! 


Start with a deep clean

The first step in any successful spring cleaning is to start with a deep clean to make sure everything is in order. Vacuum carpets, dust surfaces, and sweep and mop the floors. Wipe down the windows, window sills, baseboards, doors, and clean out closets, cupboards, and drawers. This is also a good time to check for any signs of damage or wear and tear that need to be addressed.


Make necessary repairs

During your cleaning, you can check for damaged furniture, appliances, or fixtures to make any necessary repairs. Be sure to check for any plumbing issues, broken appliances, or broken windows. If you have any exterior issues like a broken fence or cracked driveway, make sure to address them as well.


Freshen up the space

Once you’ve done a deep clean, it’s time to add some fresh touches to the space. This can include new paint, wall art, or even a few plants to liven up the space. If you’re looking for something more permanent, consider updating fixtures like light fixtures, door handles, or cabinet knobs.


Check the safety features

Make sure to check all the safety features in your rental property, including checking any fire extinguishers and making sure they are up to date. Test that all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly, and that all electrical outlets are working safely. Make sure all keys and locks work, and that any additional security features are up to date.
