Hey there, my name is Russell Tyson. I am going to use this site to educate my readers about services offered by plumbing professionals. When I first started my company, I was unaware of all the necessary plumbing procedures needed to keep the toilets from backing up. My clients often failed to notify me when a toilet started to fail, likely due to embarrassment or a lack of time. Luckily, I was clued into the value of hiring plumbers to perform regular maintenance and repairs on the toilets to keep them in fine shape. I hope to detail those services on this site to inspire others to embrace preventative plumbing procedures.
If you have a rental property and need to secure a new tenant, then you must make the property just as (or more) desirable than the other rental properties in the area that are in a similar price bracket. A plumber could help you to do this. Read on to learn about the ways in which this tradesperson could improve your rental property.
They can clean the drains and thus eliminate any odors emanating from them
If you cannot even remember when you last used a drain cleaning service on this property, then the drain system is probably not in good condition (especially if the property has been occupied by tenants and the drains have, therefore, been in regular use over the years). If this is the case, then you might want to give a plumber a call and avail of their drain cleaning service.
The reason for this is as follows; unclean drains can produce some very offensive odors. If you visit the property a lot or do not have a keen sense of smell, you might either be so accustomed to these smells that you barely register them or you might find they just do not bother you. However, it is safe to assume that a potential tenant who is met by a bad odor when they view this rental property will definitely notice and find it objectionable. If they have to choose between your property and one that is similarly-priced but has no questionable smells, they will probably apply for the latter.
By using a plumber's drain cleaning services and having them remove the old hair, soap scum, skin cells and dirt that has been sitting in the drains for years, you can make the rental property smell fresher and ensure that there are no odors that might make potential tenants hesitant to rent it.
They can improve the water pressure
The other way in which a plumber might be able to help you is by improving the water pressure in the property's showers and taps. For many people who are looking to rent a home, good water pressure is near the top of their list of things that the new place has to have and that they will refuse to compromise on.
As such, if water tends to dribble, rather than gush from the showers and taps in the property, then you should let the plumber who you hire to clean the drains also take a look at the rest of the plumbing system so that they look for ways to improve the water pressure. They may, for example, advise you to change the showerheads, or they might de-clog some of the water pipes and patch up tiny leaks that have been lowering the pressure levels. Fixing this problem could be very easy and might result in you having a bigger pool of potential tenants to choose from.
