Rental Property and Carpet Maintenance

Carpet in your home is one thing because you can clean it and monitor its wear and tear, carpet in your rental property is a whole different story. People treat their homes and possessions very differently, this means that you’re going to have people who treat the property they are renting from you with kindness and care, and then there will be other individuals that will be less than careful with your property. One of the areas that get the most wear and tear, as well as the most accidents, is the carpet. No one likes to fork out money to constantly repair the carpet. Nip Tuck Carpet Repair has fixed many carpets in rental properties.

The first thing that you’re going to want to do is to hold them accountable for their actions. This means in the contract that they are liable for any damages to the carpet. Make a stipulation that the renter will have to pay for the damage done to the carpet. Make sure the down payment is enough for the repairs that may be needed. Many landlords require that the tenants have the carpets professionally cleaned upon moving out. Holding them accountable will help them to take care of your carpet. It will help them to be more aware of what activities will be allowed to take place on the carpet or if they will wear shoes in the house. In doing this you’ll want to document the condition, if there are tears or stains, of the carpet before someone moves in.

Choosing the right carpet makes a big difference. There are a lot of things that you need to consider when picking it for your rental property. If you’re planning on having it replaced every so often then you won’t want to go with the most expensive. However, that doesn’t mean you want to go with the cheapest either. You’ll also want to consider what is going to be the best color for your rental property and balance that with what will make it appealing. Remember that you’re going to have several different people on the carpet so get something that is of a high fiber quality. The most important thing that you’ll want to do is to buy extra carpet. If you allow for pets there is bound to be ripping, tears, and stains. In order to repair it, you’ll need extra carpet on hand.
