Make Sure Your Rental Home Is Spring Ready

{{ post.title }}

Marina Shlomov - Monday, April 13, 2015

Spring is finally coming and it’s time to get your rental home in shape for the season. You will likely spend a lot of time outside and want to make sure the environment as welcoming and beautiful as possible. The exterior of your home often lacks attention throughout the winter months so as soon as the weather starts to warm, it’s time to spruce it up.

Clean It Up

Rental houses in Decatur can become dirty and unkempt over the winter months. When the weather warms, it’s the ideal chance to complete a few cleaning projects outside. Clean the debris out of the gutters to allow the spring rains to flow freely. Use a pressure washer on the driveway, walkway and patio. Pick up any trash or debris that may have collected in the yard. You may even want to wash the windows from the outside as well.

Do Some Landscaping

Planting new flowers and shrubs can help liven up houses for rent in Stone Mountain and help you feel like spring is truly here. First, remove any dead foliage that is left over from the last growing season. Then apply a new layer of mulch or fertilizer to help the new plants get the great start they need to thrive. In addition to adding new plants to your landscaping, don’t forget to prune any existing trees and bushes to create a manicured look for your yard.

Get the Outdoor Furniture Ready

Many rental houses in Decatur feature a patio or other area that makes the ideal location for your outdoor furniture. If you don’t already have some, start shopping thrift stores or even garage sales for new pieces. Clean or replace the cushions to freshen up the look of your outdoor furniture. A fresh coat of paint on the furniture frames can also clean up the look of your patio or backyard.

Perform Interior Cleaning Projects

While the outside of your rental home needs your attention to look great, the interior shouldn’t be neglected either. Spring cleaning is a tradition that can help drive out the stale winter air from your home and freshen up the look and feel of the entire space. Clean the windows, go through any clutter and give your home a good scrub down from top to bottom.

Whether you live in rental houses in Decatur or houses for rent in Stone Mountain, it’s important to clean up your home when the weather begins to warm. Both the exterior and interior of your home need your attention and now is the perfect time to give it your all. From cleaning up your yard and completing landscaping to interior cleaning projects, your home will be fresh and ready to welcome the springtime weather.
