Spring Cleaning for Homes and Gardens

Property Services in Southampton

This is the time of year when many people look to make changes to their properties, either small ones like buying a few new plants for the summer or life-changing moving home decisions.

Whatever your long term plans are it is always a good time to see how you can improve things and have a good tidy-up after the winter, both internally and externally. This does not necessarily involve high cost but can often make a real difference.

Kerb appeal is always important. Potential buyers or tenants usually make up their mind immediately they see a house as to whether they like it or not and you cannot always rely on the interior to change their minds, no matter how good it is.

Keeping lawns and shrubs trimmed and ensuring that there are some flowers whether in tubs or hanging baskets is always a good plan and lifts everyone’s mood when they see the property. Even if you do not want to carry out a major outside painting project, ensure that the front door itself is clean and in good condition. A door mat is essential and make sure the front door bell works.

If you own a flat, then ensure that the managing agents or freeholders are keeping the communal areas cleaned regularly and hallways and stairs are kept clear.

Likewise, first impressions once someone enters the property are also important. If your hallway is small and dark try to de-clutter as much as possible and keep doors open to improve the impression of light and space.

A clean, tidy property is always welcoming and appealing to prospective purchasers or tenants.
