Bird's-Eye View: The Science Behind Construction And Contracting

Hi! I'm AJ and I have an unusual hobby. I love abseiling down buildings - legally, of course. It is a growing tourist activity and I have been lucky enough to try it in many parts of the world. When you are on top of a building and then making your descent, you really have time to admire the overall construction and materials used. It is actually mind-boggling to think about the builders and machines who have put together such amazing architecture. I've been reading quite a few books lately about construction techniques and I'm quite in awe of the science involved. I hope that you find the science behind construction as fascinating as I do. Thank you for your time.

3 Aspects to End-of-Lease Cleaning You Should Prepare For

As a property owner, there are certain end of lease cleaning options you will have on your must-have list. The problem is that some of the tenants will leave you with other cleaning needs. If you want the property fully cleaned and prepared for the next tenant, consider these three aspects of the end-of-lease cleaning process that you want to add to the list. These three aspects will add that extra touch that looks like you did more than the typical walk through cleaning job at most tenancies.

Stain Removal

You generally think of the carpet and walls being cleaned, but you may not think of stain removal on items like the sinks, bathtubs and in closets. These stains can give off the appearance that the previous tenant did not care about the home or keep it clean. This can spawn into the thought that other areas of the rental are not clean as well. When you hire someone for end-of-lease cleaning, you need to ensure they offer stain removal throughout the property and offer a walkthrough to determine where the stains are prior to cleaning.

Duct Cleaning

An area that is often overlooked in end of lease cleaning is the duct work. The air ducts can become clogged and have their efficiency reduced when too much dust and debris build up in the duct lines. Though most cleaning services will clean the grates, they will leave the ducts themselves alone. If you want a deep and professional end-of-lease cleaning, the ideal option is to go with an air duct cleaning that also includes the HVAC cleaning and coil cleaning. This ensures that the HVAC system is ready to use and running at the highest level possible.

Outdoor Cleaning

You may have the indoor cleaning done when it comes to windows and walls. However, most property owners will overlook the need to clean the exterior windows and walls as well. You can have a professional come in and do pressure washing as part of the end of lease cleaning. This finishes off the cleaning and gives a professional look both outside and inside of the home for the potential tenant during their walkthrough.

Ideally, as a property owner and manager, you should be receiving a consultation from several end-of-lease cleaning companies. This will give you an idea of the best options for your tenancies. When you are ready to move forward with cleaning services, schedule a final consultation to discuss pricing and contract details.
