Spring is in the air, and that means warmer weather, longer days, and for many traditionalists, the return of spring cleaning. Spring cleaning is a time-honored tradition where people go out of their way to get their homes, offices, and even apartments cleaner after a long winter. So for apartment buildings and their managers, what will spring cleaning mean to them? By understanding how renters approach their spring cleaning to do list, apartment building managers can partner with their cleaning vendors to help assist their tenants in their cleaning goals. This extra communication can go a long way in improving the relationship between tenants and the property managers.
What Apartment Renters Can Do For Spring Cleaning
For many apartment renters, spring cleaning might look different from traditional home cleaning. While some spring cleaning activities for homeowners include some outdoor work, apartment renters are really limited to handling their own units. This can include a few simple activities like sweeping hardwood floors, vacuuming carpets, and throwing out / donating some unwanted items including clothing, furniture, etc. However, there are a variety of ways apartment renters can count on their building staff to help complete the spring cleaning process.
Apartment Building Cleaning Services Renters Want
Some porter cleaning services provide window cleaning and carpet cleaning services that are not just limited to the hallways and lobbies but can also be utilized by the renters. Apartment building managers can provide information to their renters that they can opt-in to having their units’ windows and carpets professionally cleaned. This additional service is highly appreciated by renters. Additionally, day-to-day cleaning of shared spaces like amenities, parking garages, and laundry rooms can go a long way for renters. Additionally, it is helpful for an apartment building manager to provide places where renters can donate clothing or other items. By sending out a mass email to your renters that these tools are available to them, you can help make spring cleaning an easier and more rewarding process. Clear and concise communication is very effective in building a strong relationship between tenants and property managers.
Staying On Top Of Apartment Building Cleaning
It goes without saying, that tenants really do care about how well their building is maintained. It can be very disheartening to put a lot of work into making an individual apartment look and feel clean only for the lobby or hallway to continue to be a mess. The contrast between their apartment and their building can be a sticking point that can lead to dissatisfaction with the property. All you have to do is read online reviews to see how many tenants complain about cleaning as a leading reason why they moved out of an apartment building. Taking initiative to get the right team on the premises is vital to keeping your tenants happy and going the extra step to communicate cleaning goals and opportunities to tenants can really improve your tenant’s perspective on the property.
