The Rental Guide- Carpet Cleaning

Tired of seeing stains embedded in your carpets? Maybe its from that time you spilled a cup or coffee or perhaps from all the heavy foot traffic that surrounds your front door. Whatever the case might be, the question remains up to you,¬† “How are you going to clean your carpets?”

Will you spend hundreds on professional carpet cleaning services, blame you landlord’s previous tenants, or clean it yourself? For those “DIY-ers” out there, here are some suggestions for those pesky carpet stains!

 

  1. Saturate the stain with water.
  2. Blot it until merely damp, with as many towels as it takes.
  3. Mix 2 cups water and 2 cups white distilled vinegar in a spray bottle.

Rental Applications

Flagship Property Management here answering questions on the importance of rental applications.

The goal of any property owner is to have the best possible tenant. People move for all types of reasons but those reasons are important. Any home owner wants to trust the person living in their home, apartment, townhouse, etc. Rental applications are the perfect way to find out more!

 

Rental applications are essential to learning more about a perspective tenant. Rental references, three years of residential history, and monthly income are all taken into account when qualifying a potential tenant for a home.

 

For all properties, Flagship Property Management states, “To complete this rental application, you must be prepared to provide 3 years of residential history as well as contact information for your rental references. You will also be asked to provide information on your monthly income, and please note that most properties require that applicant combined gross income is at least three (3) times the monthly rent amount.”
