12 Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Rental Property

Did you know that 72 percent of households undertake spring cleaning every year? There is no better time to clean your rental property than spring. The sun stays out a bit longer, and you can prepare for summer. It encourages the urge to wipe everything clean for a fresh start. 


  • Air Out Blankets, Comforters, and Pillows


These need a little air after remaining indoors all winter. You can hang them over a chair or the clotheslines. This will refresh them quite well. 


  • Clean and Replace Doormats

Your doormats will probably be in bad condition when spring comes. Some are just dirty and need cleaning, you should vacuum them well. You can use a little baking soda on them. It works as a natural deodorizer. If they are beyond repair, you should replace them.


  • Service the Air Conditioning System


Spring is the perfect time to make sure it is working well. If you wait for the hot season, you might not get an appointment to service it.


  • Clean the Cabinets, Woodwork, Baseboards, and Walls


This task only needs to be done about twice a year. You start by wiping off all the dust with a dry cloth or sponge. Next, use warm, soapy water and an undyed cloth. You should thoroughly scrub the walls. 


  • Repair Patios and Decks


It would be best to inspect the patios and decks for loose boards after winter. You can repair any loose boards and other kinds of damage.


  • Check the Sprinkler System

You need to take good care of your green spaces. You cannot only rely on rain to do the hydration. To keep the green looking lush, check and maintain your sprinkler system.


  • Dust Off Fixtures, Fans, and Vents


If you turn on the fans before dusting them, they will fill the rooms with month-old dust. It would be best if you took time to dust them off, especially those in the common areas. Do the same for the vents and light fixtures.


  • Pressure-clean the Exterior


You should call in an expert to help with the pressure cleaning so as not to damage the exterior. Make sure to clean the patios, decks, and sidewalks. 


  • Wash Your Windows and Screens


First, remove the screens from the window to make the process faster. Spray the screen with a hose. Next, scrub with soap and water to remove the dirt and grime. Do the same to the windows and dry with a clean rag.


  • Clean the Gutters


The winter season might leave a lot of debris in your gutter. You should clean them out and fix any that need repair.


  • Patch Up the Roof


It would be best not to wait for a leak to check on the roof. Spring is a good time to do maintenance on the roof.


  • Clean Your Windowsills and Doorsills


Remove cracked sealants, caulk edges, and old caulking. You can replace or repaint if you want to. You can also hire an expert to help you do it.
