Having your carpets professionally cleaned before a tenant moves into your investment property offers several advantages, both from the tenant’s perspective and as a landlord. Let’s explore these benefits:

From the Tenant’s Perspective:

Clean, freshly shampooed carpets create a welcoming atmosphere and make a positive first impression on potential tenants. It demonstrates your attention to detail and care for the property, encouraging tenants to take good care of it as well.

Well-maintained carpets can help tenants overlook minor shortcomings in the property, such as space limitations or other imperfections. The cleanliness and freshness of the carpets contribute to an overall positive perception of the property.

Tenants will be proud to showcase their new home to friends and family, making a great impression on their guests. This can be a deciding factor when tenants have multiple similar property options.

Clean carpets eliminate the need for tenants to arrange and wait for carpet cleaning after moving in. They can immediately settle into their new home without the hassle of dealing with wet or dirty carpets.

From the Landlord’s Perspective:

By having the carpets professionally cleaned before the tenant moves in and providing a receipt as proof, you can include a condition in the lease agreement. This condition states that the tenant is responsible for professional carpet cleaning at their expense upon vacating the property, reducing your future costs.

Professional carpet cleaning expenses can be claimed as a legitimate expense for taxation purposes, providing potential financial benefits for landlords.

If pets are allowed in the property, you can include a condition in the lease agreement requiring tenants to have flea treatment for the carpets at their expense. This helps maintain cleanliness and hygiene standards.

A well-presented property with professionally cleaned carpets attracts tenants more quickly, reducing vacancy periods and maximising rental income.

Regular professional carpet cleaning helps extend the life of the carpets, contributing to the overall maintenance and longevity of the property.

In summary, professional carpet cleaning offers benefits for both landlords and tenants. It is a minor expense that pays off by creating a positive impression, reducing costs, attracting tenants faster, and contributing to the long-term maintenance of the property.
