For multifamily property managers spring cleaning means not just getting the yard in shape and the steps swept off. It can be a daunting task if old man winter has kept your maintenance from doing preventive checklists. We will discuss a few things below that can help the spring cleaning and the maintenance personnel stay efficient.
Make sure to stay on top of lights that go out on property year round. This helps your residents and your security team immensely. Residents don’t normally want to rent a dark property that they don’t feel safe at. At Signal 88 Security of El Paso we provide property light reports to the management team as a tool to keep the property properly lit and safe.
The yellow lines and markers for “step up” or “step down” need to be repainted on a regular basis. No one wants a resident hurt because they didn’t see it. Injuries can also be followed by nasty legal ramifications that no one wants either.
Cleanliness can be discussed in all facets of the multi unit housing industry that can be challenging to keep up with. Carpets, a/c ducts, hallways, steps, pools, and any common areas must be kept as clean as possible. Again, no one wants sick or injured tenants. The object is to create the best experience possible for tenants and their families.
Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask for feedback from your tenants so you can make improvements on the front end of the relationship.
