Helpful Hints for Routine Inspections

By Property Management

We all hate doing it but cleaning your home is essential.

When you are a tenant of Ray White Maroochydore we try to make cleaning worth your while by awarding a tenant of the month to the most immaculate property found during our inspections.

We also leave a small token of our appreciation for all properties deemed ‘immaculate’ during our routine inspections.

At Ray White Maroochydore regular routine inspections are conducted every 4 months, being 3 times a year for our rental properties.

Regular general cleaning will help keep your rental property in good order. However, if you get caught leaving it last minute we’ve complied a list of areas that will be checked at our inspections so you have some notice. These items left unattended for too long can cause long term damage to the property.

  • Build up of mould/scum in showers/baths on walls and bases, on sealant between laminate and tiles of vanities, around bases of taps and in tracks of sliding shower screens
  • Build up of mould/scum around kitchen sink taps, on sealant between laminate and tiles (particularly behind sink area)
  • Build up of spilt and burnt on material on and around hot plates and in drip trays and to a lesser degree ovens- especially the roof and grills.
  • Accumulation of dirt in sliding window/door/robe tracks.
  • Cleaning products being stored on kitchen/laundry/bathroom window sills, causing paint to peel.
  • Dirty areas in carpets eg. traffic area from kitchen/dining-lounge, outside bathrooms, around lounge chairs (provide some form of protection).
  • Flat batteries not being replaced in smoke alarms, removing or interfering with smoke alarms (this is illegal).
  • Oil spills on garage floor and driveways.
  • Build up of mould/slippery areas on paths/patio/driveways.
  • Weeds and grass growing in flower beds/courtyard areas.
  • Accumulated piles of garden trimmings heaped around the yard/courtyard.
  • Grass clippings being tipped on garden beds.

Routine Inspections are also the perfect time note any damage, maintenance or repairs for the property with the property manager – keeping us informed of any of the above helps all parties with a smooth transition once vacating becomes and option.

If you have any questions regarding our regular inspections please contact our Routine Inspections Manager on 0407 628 334
