It’s springtime! Time to bid farewell to heavy jackets and blankets, to dark winter days and cozy nights by the fireplace. Time to welcome in the fresh flowers and bright sunshine of spring! And if you own a vacation home in Northwestern Wisconsin, it might mean welcoming in a new wave of renters, too.
Here’s what you need to do to spring clean your vacation cabin to get it ready for summer rentals.
Give your Home a Facelift
Fix the big, obvious things, like leaking faucets, broken appliances, missing shutters, or anything else that’s not working quite right. Then, try and take a look from an outside perspective to catch the smaller things you might not notice but might irritate a renter. And when in doubt, throw it out!
Put Away the Winter Gear
It’s time to stow the heavy blankets and dark colors and give your home a spring refresh. Flowers, bright colors, lighter blankets, and even new outdoor furniture can help bring new light to your home. You might even consider adding some decor or knickknacks for a more homey feel.
Deep Clean Everything
Get rid of the winter dust and grime with a good deep cleaning. Leave nothing overlooked—light fixtures, doorknobs, walls, carpets, baseboards and heaters, fridge and freezer, bathtub and shower curtains.If it has a surface, it has to be cleaned! This includes steam-cleaning upholstered furniture and power-washing exterior areas like decks, patios, and siding.
Update Online Rental Photos
Once you’ve gone through and spruced up your house, it’s time to make sure all potential renters know how great it is. Update your online postings to include any information about recent updates or renovations. You may also consider posting some new photos to really showcase the beauty of your home in springs.
