HOW TO KEEP CLEAN AND SAFE RENTAL PROPERTIES

HOW TO KEEP CLEAN AND SAFE RENTAL PROPERTIES

Posted: Thursday February 25, 2021

As a property manager, you have a responsibility to make your renters feel safe and protected in your rental properties. This includes health-wise as well as security. Here are several things you can do to give your renters peace of mind. 

1. INSTALL KEYLESS ENTRIES

Not having a key to unlock the door is a no-contact option that most renters can get behind. Furthermore, these entries are more secure and give you and the renter more control over who’s coming and going at all times. Direct-to-home check-ins are safer and more convenient for both managers and renters. 

2. INSTALL SMART THERMOSTATS

In an era when cleanliness is most important, smart thermostats allow you to flush the air system for an added layer of cleanliness and protection. Also, as a property manager, a smart thermostat connects with your phone and allows you to control the heating and cooling system in your rentals while your renters are away. 

3. IMPLEMENT A PROPERTY OPERATIONS DASHBOARD

No-contact and social distancing is the norm these days, so if you run a short-term rental, you’ll want to implement a property operations dashboard that allows guests to check in and check out, which in turn, notifies you (or your cleaning staff). Your cleaning staff can then go in and do what they need to do to get the rental ready for the next guest without ever having to come in contact with incoming or outgoing renters. 

4. INSTALL A SMART SECURITY SYSTEM

Installing a smart security system not only protects renters but it also lets you monitor your rental property during the off-season. These systems include cameras for video surveillance as well as sensors that identify regular visitors and guests to alert you when suspicious activity or persons are detected. 

5. USE PROPER PPE

Personal protection equipment is more important than ever, so you need to make sure you and anyone that enters your rental properties are using the latest and most effective PPE available. Your cleaning staff, especially, needs to use this equipment as well as cleaning supplies proven to kill the coronavirus. You want to be able to tell your renters that you’ve done everything possible to make their stay in your rental as safe as possible. 

As the pandemic continues, cleanliness is a must, especially in your rental property. Whether you rent long-term or short-term, you need to make cleaning a priority throughout the pandemic and beyond to ensure your renters feel safe and protected while staying in your rental.
