Gesundheit! Do Your Hyrum Tenants Suffer from Allergies?

Hyrum Tenant with the Sniffles due to AllergiesEverything 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 population of the United States suffers from moderate to severe pet allergies, while for seasonal allergies that number jumps to 40%. Assuming these numbers are correct, then you probably have one or two renters in your Hyrum single-family home that also have issues with allergies.

The fact is that 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 when renting them out to new tenants. Particularly if you plan to or have allowed your tenants to keep pets on the property, it is essential to have the property thoroughly and properly cleaned between tenants to keep common household allergens to a minimum.

You can’t always rely on your renters to make sure they thoroughly clean the house as soon as they move out. By making that assumption, you may land in a tricky scenario and it would probably give you and your new tenant a hard time. If they realize that the house they’ve leased is still dirty from the previous occupant, they have a good case to argue that the house itself is causing or 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, the filters in your rental homes should also be replaced on a regular basis. It’s critical to check and make certain that they are; your tenants may or may not be keeping track of such easily disregarded tasks. Also, professional home and carpet cleaning will not only show your home in the best light but may also extend the life of your flooring.
