Category: End of Tenancy Cleaning
Some renters will really take care of the place and will be meticulous about cleaning, while others view housework a lot differently and can easily see past dirt and grime.
Of course there's little you can do to change people's attitudes, but you can make sure that your property is easy to keep clean by making some clever home improvements.
Tiles look great in the bathroom, but the grout can very easily become grubby or mouldy if it isn't cleaned regularly. Try fitting shower wall panels instead, which can be wiped over in seconds.
You could also consider a back-to-wall toilet that's built into a unit, or a vanity with a recessed basin, as this will minimise the amount of pipework on show and make cleaning a lot faster.

A self-cleaning oven could therefore save you a lot of trouble. Not only will it encourage your renters to keep the appliance in decent condition, it'll also make End of Tenancy Cleaning a lot easier.
Carpets can be magnets for dirt and unless your tenants are particular about removing their shoes every time they enter your property, you could end up spending a fortune on professional cleaning.
Consider laying laminate or solid wood flooring instead, as this can easily be wiped clean. If you're adamant about having carpets, choose a darker colour that will hide any stains.
