Attention Pool home owners!
Do not delegate the responsibility of cleaning your pool to the tenant
This blog, in particular, aims to bring a subject of interest to owners of long-term rental properties, since here in Florida, we find in this market, customers who delegate the financial responsibility to the tenant to hire a company to take care of the pool.
In most cases, the tenant:
1 – The tenant doesn’t hire anyone, because he thinks he can take care of it and save his own money;
2 – He also can hire the cheapest company that will certainly not provide a good service.
In both cases, the outcome is the same: GREEN POOL, often abandoned and without maintenance for a long time, equipment without inspection and working properly, pools with permanent stains due to the lack of correct balance of chemicals.
Result: high cost to recover the pool and/or irreversible damage to property.
A good pool cleaning company should be your eyes on the pool area. In addition to ensuring healthy and crystal clear water, you must report any problems found in the area and equipment. Many more serious problems can be avoided and costs minimized if identified early.
You resolve this issue easily, adding the value of maintaining the pool in the rent that the tenant pays, and in this way, you guarantee that the pool will be properly treated and its assets preserved.
One of the things that most leave us unhappy is: “how the owner of a long-term home delegates the care of the pool to the tenant.”
You should be responsible for hiring the pool cleaning company. The owner!
