Everything feels like a threat for people with allergies—the environment may feel like a giant trap for them. Allergies can be a simple irritation or a life-threatening one. Roughly 10% of the United States population suffers from moderate to severe pet allergies. Regarding seasonal allergies, that number jumps to 40%. Assuming these numbers are correct, then you probably have some renters in your Hyrum single-family home that also have issues with allergies.

A Landlord’s Responsibility

The majority of the responsibility falls on the tenant to keep track of their exposure to common household allergens. However, as a landlord, you have to do your part and make sure that your rental homes are as clean as they can be. If you plan to allow your tenants to keep pets on the property, it is essential to thoroughly and properly clean the property between tenants to keep common household allergens to a minimum.

Clean Thoroughly Between Tenants

You can’t always rely on your renters to make sure they thoroughly clean the house as soon as they move out. You may land in a tricky scenario by making that assumption. If they realize that the house is still dirty upon move-in, they can argue that the house itself is contributing to their health issues.

These are just a few of the reasons why you should never skimp on professional cleaning and maintenance tasks. Together with proper cleaning, replace the filters in your rental homes regularly. It’s critical to check and make certain that they are; your tenants may or may not be keeping track of such tasks. Also, professional home and carpet cleaning will show your home in the best light but may extend the life of your flooring.
