Are Your Wolfforth Residents Damaging your Rental’s Surface Areas?

Wolfforth Tenant Trying to Fix Floors in a Rental PropertyCaring for a rental home demands effort and regular maintenance. A good quality tenant will ascertain this, and support property owners in keeping their Wolfforth rental homes clean, maintained, and in good repair. Although at times, even tenants with the best intentions can by accident damage a home’s interior surfaces.

In certain instances, unintentional damage is resulting from a tenant completely not perceiving that their actions are producing wreckage. Other cases, the damage shows up through accidents or as the result of a tenant’s poor decision. Understanding the most conventional ways a rental home’s interior surfaces can sustain inadvertent damage can really help property owners in keeping their tenants informed and the rental homes well taken care of.

Once surface damage goes beyond basic wear and tear, tenant negligence is usually the source. Countertops, floors, and even sinks and bathtubs are exposed to continual use, and can generally endure well for a long time, even under intensive use. But tenants may not comprehend how to appropriately look after or safeguard these surfaces.

As an example, kitchen and bathroom countertops can mostly deal with daily cleanings, food preparation activities, and a few spills with no trouble. However, countertops can be damaged by harsh cleaning products, specifically those containing bleach or ammonia. The sort of cleaning product to utilize will depend upon what style of countertops you have in your rental home and should be selected attentively.

Other methods that countertops can be damaged integrate placing too much weight on a countertop, as for instance an unusually heavy appliance or even a person standing on it. A few countertops could be damaged by placing hot pans or appliances on them, such as a toaster oven or a slow cooker.

Even a curling iron can cause burn marks on a bathroom countertop and can be difficult to remove. Cutting and chopping directly on a countertop can, additionally, damage the surface, developing small indentations that can bring about bigger issues down the line.

Floors are another interior surface that tenants often accidentally damage. There are many things that could slip under a watchful tenant’s radar, in particular, small leaks under a refrigerator or a drip under the cabinet from a sink water supply line that, as time progresses, give rise to permanent water damage in a kitchen floor.

Moving furniture is one of the biggest culprits of unintentional floor damage. Pressing heavy items through a laminate or wood floor can cause scratches, gouging, and tears. This is, furthermore, the most typical way carpets get torn. Positioning heavy furniture in the wrong spot can crack or chip tile floors, also with dropping heavy items, such as exercise weights or even books. Just like with countertops, adopting the wrong cleaning products can permanently damage a floor, stripping off finishes and creating unsightly stains or bleach spots.

Bathtubs can also sustain accidental damage from harsh cleaning products. Contrarily, one conventional mistake is not cleaning often enough, letting mineral deposits from tap water to build up until they are just about not possible to take off, even worse, allowing mildew to form. Regarding tile, positioning something that is too heavy in a bathtub can cause cracks, and using a bathtub not for it’s designed purpose can give rise to a range of nuisances and problems, from unfixable scratches in a solid-surface unit to rust or coloring dye stains, and a lot more.

Letting them know how to properly clean countertops, move heavy furniture, and so on, can be of great value toward preventing expensive repairs.
