One of the most difficult parts of owning a Houston Texas Rental property is when the carpeting begins to wear out and will need to be replaced.
Everyone knows that carpeting can be very expensive to replace.
Most property owners will choose all hard surface flooring vs. carpeting in order to avoid the hassle and expense of having to deal with carpeting, but the reality is that the average renter likes the feel of carpeting under their feet when they wake up in the morning.
To save you the time, money and hassle of losing your carpeting investment here are 4 tips you can use to save the carpeting in your Houston Texas Rental Property.
Tip 1 – Install Half Carpeting and Half Hard Surface Flooring
One of the first things you do to save money in your Houston Texas Rental Property is to install half carpeting and half hard surface flooring in your rental.
Consider installing hard surface flooring in high traffic areas like: kitchens, bathrooms and entry points to the home.
Tip 2 – Add Floor Mats To Entry Points
Although most people add floor mats to the inside of most homes, you should consider adding a floor mat to both the inside and outside of each entry door to your Houston Texas Rental Property.
This will provide tenants and their guest multiple places for them to wipe their feet and eliminate the problem of more dirt getting trapped in the carpeting during the year.
Tip 3 – Purchase a Multi-Purpose Cleaning Machine
If your Houston Rental has multi-surfaces like carpeting and hard surface flooring you should consider purchasing a multi-surface cleaning machine which you can use to clean both hard surface flooring and carpeting.
Tip 4 – Clean Carpeting At Least Twice Per Year
Last of all, but most important, consider having the carpeting in your rental property cleaned at least twice per year.
This will help to maintain your investment in the carpeting you’ve purchased and also keep your tenants happy as well especially if they have allergies to dust or dirt in the carpeting.
