Property Management Companies Offer Help, Advice And Compliance Assistance in Sutton

An owner of rental property in Sutton has a lot of things on their plate. They deal with things such as security, day to day maintenance and securing appropriate tenants. They must often interrupt their daily activities to handle these tasks and this cuts into their productive days in such ways that are bothersome. If all they have to do is this monitoring, that would be one thing, however, because it often is not, a local, Sutton based Property Management Services company can sit in for them and many believe this is a better use of their resources.

Property management companies have had a long history of dealing with all of the details it takes to properly maintain and promote rental properties for their owners so the owners do not have to be bothered with it all.

A short, incomplete, list of activities and responsibilities offered by property management firms will include:

1. The establishment of an appropriate monthly rent or lease figure, based on condition, location and amenities of a property.

2. Identifying such things a security deposit amount as well as any fees associated with the processing of the application, any local taxes, local fees and other criteria.

3. The preparation of the property before rental to ensure the inside and outside is ready for occupation and the ‘curb appeal’ is above reproach.

4. The active advertising of the property in appropriate media sources, such as Sutton newspapers, industry publications and online clearing houses.

5. Pre-application interviews based on the appropriate criteria to determine a candidate’s fitness for the property.

6. Investigation of any potential tenants as far as background and credit checks.

7. Any maintenance activities to ensure the safety and compliance to any local codes and regulations, before, during and after the rental has occurred.

8. Accept security deposit or bond upon acceptance of application as well as all monthly or quarterly payments and the maintenance of a bank account for this purpose.

9. Accept communication from the tenant as far as any issues that arise, and attempt to correct them in a timely manner.

10. Tracking down any late payments.

11. Verify that all cleanliness issues are handled by the tenant as occurring.

12. At the conclusion of the rental or leasing period, inspection of the property to see that it is returned in as clean a condition as it was rented and make suggestions about how to comply with this requirement.

There is much discussion about the end of tenancy cleaning that is required to return any property to a proper level of cleanliness. The tenant assumes the responsibility of seeing this is accomplished, whether it is a house or a commercial property. The primary responsibility of the property management company is to ensure this has occurred. There are some reputable companies offering end of tenancy cleaning in Sutton.

They do this with a detailed inspection that should reflect the condition the property was in when it was inspected before the tenant took possession. As part of their activities, they can be retained, by the tenant, to do this cleaning as they know what areas are critical and their cleaning department can accomplish this quickly and without issue, based on the discussions they had with you, the property owner.

Harsh Chemical Free Window Cleaning

The dirty window glass you may have in your commercial building or your home will not get cleaner unless something is done about it. The one good thing about hiring a commercial cleaning company, offered by a property management company, is that harsh chemicals do not have to be used to clean them. There are some harsher chemicals than what is usually used, but they do not have to be.

The tools needed to clean any glass is about the same regardless of who is doing the work. A bucket is needed for the solution and it must be long enough to dip the wet bar into. The wet bar is a bar with a handle on it. The bar is covered with a cloth, usually a lamb’s wool cloth, which is used to apply the solution to the glass.

The solution can be simply water, however, there really should be some kind of surfactant in it. That detergent will help emulsify the dirt and dust that is usually slightly greasy. It can be a biodegradable green technology cleanser so it does not have to be the harsher chemicals that are available.

The solution, whether a green cleanser or just water, is applied by the wet bar in a scrubbing motion to dislodge the dirt and dust and rise above the solution. The window knife is a specialized tool used to scrap anything that is sticky off of the glass. The squeegee is then brought out and is used to remove the water that has all of the dirt suspended in it. This squeegee is used in various ways depending on the experience and skill sets of the window cleaner.

The basic motion is a simple top to bottom stroke that covers the entire glass with just a few strokes. Starting at the top and pulling the squeegee straight down to the bottom and wiping off the sill where the water will go.

In the 1950’s an invention changed a few things for some window cleaning companies. This is called, by many, a ‘Tucker Pole’. It is a metal extendable pole with a brush on the business end and can have a pump that forces water out of the brush. This allows for the cleaning of glass at heights of between 30 and about 60 feet.

It can be extended and can reach those panes that were out of reach before. This unit, combined with a scissor lift can reach well into the third floor and can be used with absolutely no chemicals. The water solution that can be pumped up the pole and deposited on the glass can be deionized water which also prevents residue from any cleanser staying on the glass to attract any other contamination.

It is always recommended that a detergent be used to remove dirt and dust and especially greasy residue from so many things outside, such as oil kicked up from cars passing by. Whereas there are many cleaning companies that will not take the job unless they can use chemicals, there are many others who will appreciate the challenge.
