Getting a rental ready for a new tenant can be a big job. The process starts on the most basic level: ensuring the property is clean and in good repair. But even the most conscientious tenants can leave landlords with a lot of work. The goal is to find a new, awesome tenant with as quick a turnaround as possible — but how do you perform a quick fix up without cutting corners on quality?
At Rent Portland Homes by Darla Andrew, our hard-working team handles the entire process for you. Meet some of our awesome partners in our latest YouTube video, and make sure you subscribe to our channel for future updates on all the ways we can make property owners’ lives easier.
If you’re looking to fix up your rental and get it back on the market, here are a few ways we can help get your property back into peak condition after just one day of our contractors’ services.
Property Repair Can Be Extensive
The first step in getting your property up to par is to ensure there is no structural damage. After all, even the most careful renters end up causing damage to your property through normal wear and tear. Accidents happen, and things get damaged. In the worst-case scenario, your last tenant was careless and destructive and left a big repair job on your plate.
Even noting potential repairs can be a challenge. From stains to nail-holes, walls painted the wrong color or hidden pipe leaks — any homeowner knows there are myriad things that can go wrong. At Rent Portland Homes by Darla Andrew, we work with Pumpkin Ridge Construction to perform a complete property inspection. We identify and correct any required repairs and touch-ups — all in a single day.
Pumpkin Ridge Construction Works Hard For You
In our video we interview Jesse Curran — our construction and service technician — who works hard on even the toughest rental fix-ups. His day often starts at seven in the morning and stretches late into the evening to ensure that your property is in peak condition.
Jesse begins with an initial inspection of the property. He checks the exterior of the house for damage, including gutters, siding, and the roof. Jesse also makes sure that your property’s fencing, gates, and landscaping are in beautiful condition. After all, your rental’s exterior is your dream tenant’s first view of their future home. When we first started chatting with Jesse, he was hard at work, mowing a property’s severely overgrown lawn. No task is too big or too small for our team to tackle with gusto.
Moving inside, Jesse scours the rest of the property for safety or cosmetic issues. He makes sure to check that all the smoke detectors are within the manufacturer’s safety guidelines. From paint touch-ups to plumbing leaks, Jesse helps make sure that everything is ready for your next tenant to move in. As Jesse puts it in our video, “I check everything.” His diligence is an example of the excellence you can expect from Rent Portland Homes by Darla Andrew.
Clean Break LLC Does it All
When it comes to cleaning and sanitization, tenants have high expectations — especially in the age of COVID-19. Luckily, Clean Break LLC has provided diligent, professional cleaning services since before we had to worry about social distancing.
We interviewed Hector from Clean Break about his team’s cleaning routine when prepping a house for new tenants. First, his trained crew comes in to clean windows, floors, walls, and baseboards. The sheer volume of work this presents can be an intimidating challenge for an individual, but it’s short work for Hector’s team.
Next, come the carpets. Anyone who has tried to clean a carpet by hand knows what a nightmare it can be. Luckily Clean Break offers deep-cleaning services that can get old carpets in like-new condition in no time. They also provide carpet repair services, in cases when even the deepest clean isn’t enough.
Lastly, Clean Break LLC does a deep-clean and disinfect of all appliances and surfaces in your rental. No matter how diligently a tenant tried to scrub the pizza cheese caked to the microwave, it inevitably takes a professional cleaning to make a kitchen shine. Hector and his team do just that. Tenants can move into their new home, knowing that it’s practically as good as new. And just like Pumpkin Ridge Construction, Clean Break LLC gets the job done all in the same day.
Your Property Is In Good Hands
We know how important it is for tenants to feel that their new home is clean and in good repair. However, sometimes the amount of work a property requires is more than any one person can handle. Or maybe, the time investment just isn’t worth the payoff. But when entrusting that work to someone else, you want to feel secure placing one of your most valuable assets in their hands.
It’s not just about slapping on a new coat of paint and doing a quick wipe-down of the counters. Rent Portland Homes by Darla Andrew connects you with our amazing professional partners. You can feel confident knowing we will accept nothing but the best on your behalf. From Jesse with Pumpkin Ridge Construction to Hector with Clean Break LLC, we’re proud to work with such diligent vendors to ensure your house goes from worn-out to like-new — as soon as possible. No wait, no work, no worry. With us, you know you’re taken care of. If you’d like to hear more about our years of experience and wonderful partners, call or text us at (503) 515-3170.
