If your rentals are in a highly populated or overly trafficked area, you may want to consider a regular grounds clean-up program. At Campus Handyman, we provide regularly scheduled grounds cleaning for a number of our Ohio State campus-area clients. Each Monday, one of our Exterior Specialists works a list of homes, picking up trash & debris and properly disposing of it.
While you should instruct your tenants to keep the exterior of their homes clean & free of trash/debris at all times, often they will not comply. Instead of being the landlord with the trashy home, spend a little extra time & money to have the grounds kept clean,.
