One of the best things you can do to protect your investment property at the Lake of the Ozarks, and keep it in tip-top shape, is to get a deep spring cleaning. Whether you clean your Lake of the Ozarks rental home or condo yourself or you hire a professional to do it, we require a deep clean every spring for all properties on our rental program. Keep reading to learn about the many benefits of a spring cleaning:
1. Keep Your Property in Good Condition.
Keeping your home clean not only makes it look good on the surface, but it can keep your appliances, furnishings, etc. in good working condition. During a spring cleaning, you pull all your appliances away from the walls, cleaning them inside and out. This keeps them running efficiently and makes them last longer. Dirt and debris can also make furniture and furnishings wear out faster. The deep cleaning of upholstery, carpet, sinks, showers, etc. can help extend the life of these items. Vacation Rentals in Osage Beach and surrounding areas get extra wear and tear due to the amount of different guests in and out, so anything you can do to extend the life of your furnishings, the better.
2. Have Happier Guests
Another one of the benefits of a spring cleaning revolves around your guests. The cleaner your home is, the happier your guests will be. When it comes to reviews on accommodations, the number one thing people take into account is the cleanliness of the property. You can have a beautiful home, but if it isn’t clean, that’s what the guest is going to focus on. By having a deep clean done on your property each year, you make it easier to keep everything clean throughout the busy season. A spectacularly clean home will make your guests happier, making them want to return. The cleaner your rental, the more likely you are to get good reviews which is going to encourage more guests to stay at your place as well.
3. Prevent Maintenance Problems
During the spring cleaning, you have the opportunity to check for maintenance issues that could cause bigger problems later. Those items are often harder, and more costly, to fix during the busy summer rental season. A big one to pay attention to is your HVAC system; as it switches over from heat to air conditioning, you should consider having it checked by an HVAC professional. Regularly servicing and cleaning your HVAC system can keep it operating efficiently, reduce the likelihood of malfunction and extend the life of the system. Anything you do to prevent your AC going out during Missouri’s hot summer months, the better. Not only will you avoid costly repairs, but you’ll keep your guests happy. Malfunctioning HVAC units and other appliances can really cause a damper on people’s vacations. While some things are obviously out of your control, regular preventative maintenance can reduce the risks.
When you’re on our Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental management program, we require a spring cleaning every year. We have a detailed checklist of what should be completed during that deep clean of your vacation property, that you can complete yourself or have our housekeeper do for you. Cleanliness is something we strive for at Your Lake Vacation. Happy Cleaning!
