Attention All Renters! – Why the Carpets are the number one factor to getting your bond back.
If you’ve ever experienced the hassles of getting your bond back because of stained carpets you’re not alone. It’s an extremely regular problem that we at Pride Carpet Cleaning Perth hear all too common from tenants when it comes time to vacate a property.
To call it the Number One Factor is an understatement. There is simply no other factor which ranks higher in importance to getting your full bond returned to you.
Sure, there are other important items which need to be considered, but if, the carpets are left in a lesser condition than when you began your tenancy, you will likely have a battle on your hands.
It’s the first thing a Property Manager notices
As the old saying goes, “The First Impression Counts”. As soon as your property manager enters the property their eyes scan immediately to the general condition of the carpets. You can either set a positive tone or a negative tone to your final inspection. Newly cleaned and fresh smelling carpets “set the scene” and puts your manager in a positive frame of mind. From there, you’ll likely find that your inspection runs a lot more smoothly.
Distracts from any other little bits of wear and tear
Professionally cleaned and stain free carpets can help distract your property manager from other minor issues and allow them to let some little items slide through the inspection with less attention given.
Alternatively, if carpets are damaged or poorly cleaned, the focus will turn negative very quickly and every item on your “Exit Report” will be looked at much more closely. “Now, where’s that Fine-Toothed Comb”.
One of the most expensive things they will try sting you for
Right off the bat, you can see that this is going to cost you “Big Time”.
Firstly, your property manager is going to insist that you get your carpet cleaner back to do the job again. Considering that they didn’t do a very good job in the first instance, their second attempt won’t likely make much difference. If that’s the case, your property manager will insist on having their own carpet cleaner to come in and re-clean the carpets. Your bond is now looking at risk!
Additionally, your Bond Cleaner is probably going to be called back, as now your property manager has picked at every little thing. If you did the bond clean yourself, expect to spend many more hours cleaning a house that you have moved on from. There’s nothing worse, when all you want to do is move into your new place.
Wine stains pretty much guarantee that you won’t get your bond back
Wine stains, especially red wine, virtually guarantees your bond is up for grabs. In fact, add to that any serious stains such as urine, blood, vomit and such, and your bond is pretty much done with, so say goodbye to a full refund.
Each of the stains and odours mentioned above are notoriously difficult to eradicate. Using the incorrect methods to remove these stains is the number one cause of setting the stain into your carpets, so once a stain is set it’s there for the life of the carpet.
