Did your tenant recently move out of your Salinas area rental property and after you inspected it, you found that it has a strange smell?
Even though your rental property may look great on the outside, the reality is that if it smells funny on the inside, this is going to make it harder for you to rent that property than you can ever imagine.
Thankfully, there are a wide variety of things that you can do to remove strange smells from your rental property, especially when you do the following.
Identify Where The Smell Is Coming From
The first thing that you need to do after your former tenant has moved out is to identify where the smell is coming from in your rental property.
Sadly, even though your former tenant may have told you that they cleaned the rental property from top to bottom, it’s very possible that they may have left trash or debris behind so the first thing that you should do is search each room in your rental property from top to bottom to make sure that nothing was left behind.
Clean The Rental Property
After you’ve found and eliminated the smell from the rental property, the next thing that you should do is clean the property from top to bottom.
A thorough cleaning should also include steam cleaning the floors, scrubbing baseboards, walls, and also windows because your goal should be to completely remove any residual effects of the smell from the property so that it won’t be noticeable to future tenants.
Repaint With Odor Absorbing Paint
Last of all, but most important, another thing that you want to do to help remove smells from your rental property is to repaint your rental property with odor absorbing paint.
Using odor absorbing paint will help to permanently absorb any unpleasant odors that may remain in a rental property and enable you to present a clean, sanitary, rental property to your next prospective tenant.
