In a rental property, some of the responsibilities of a tenant include; cleaning and repairs to carpets, lighting, wall coverings, washrooms, kitchen fixtures and other daily maintenance essentials of the rented space.
If you have rented a commercial space for business, maintaining the space and taking responsibility of such nonstructural elements is extremely important because it all counts in the process of attracting and retaining a customer.
Have you ever gone into a restaurant and just decided never to go back after using their washrooms? Right. That’s the same way a customer feels when they come to your office/retail space and notice the chipped wall paint or they smell that funny smell from the nice-looking carpet.
Nowadays, it’s costly even for menial maintenance works to be done well. Business owners are all cutting down on costs and only working to ensure that essential operations required for their businesses to run are maintained.
However, just like the way that restaurant owner may not see the big deal in having to replace the three broken floor tiles or the broken flash handle in his/her washroom right away, your potential customer might just be put off by the smell on the carpet and choose to go to your competition.
Don’t let the menial cleaning and repairs continue costing you real business. Find a professional contractor near you and give them the job to do all the maintenance works for you.
