Get Your Perth Rental Property Ready For Spring

With spring officially upon us, that means one thing for your Perth rental property – it’s spring cleaning time!

Tidying and decluttering your property with the coming of a new season is an excellent way of staying on top of maintenance to keep your house feeling like a home. Here are our top tips on how to get your Perth rental property ready for spring.


Who doesn’t love to declutter? While it can be a time-consuming process, there’s no better feeling than having a clean space. After all, there’s no denying if your room is cluttered, your mind is cluttered. To effectively declutter your Perth rental property, don’t fall into the familiar trap of attempting to clean the entire house in one day, as this will simply leave you feeling overwhelmed and frazzled. Instead, focus on one room in one day, or maybe even part of one room in one day. Don’t start on a new room until you complete the one you’ve already started and reward yourself for completing particularly mind-numbing tasks such as sorting through the mountains of paperwork in your filing cabinet.

Spruce up your garden and your deck

Springtime means it’s time to reacquaint yourself with your outdoor areas. Whether you have made plans to entertain friends in your garden or are simply sick of those winter weeds, it’s time to spruce up your outdoor area and deck with some simple maintenance. Depending on whether you or your landlord are responsible for your garden, it might be time to get sweeping and weeding to restore your outdoor areas to their springtime glory.

Get on top of maintenance issues

This winter has had its fair share of rain (and even a bit of hail), so it’s important to see if your Perth rental property needs any maintenance. If you do find some maintenance issues, make sure you notify your landlord. This means looking out for cracks in the concrete, broken or loose roof tiles, water damage or rot on your exterior paint, and clogged gutters. The sooner that you rectify these pesky souvenirs from winter, the sooner your Perth rental property will be ready for spring.

New styling

Is it just us or does the arrival of sunnier weather make you want to reinvent? Springtime is the perfect excuse to update your Perth rental property, and while this can be difficult when you’re renting, it can still be done with some new bedding or furniture. Simple updates such as new colourful pillows will breathe new life into your living room. Similarly, since you’ll be stowing away your winter rugs, why not replace them with some vibrant throws? Don’t be afraid to play around with colours, prints and textures. Springtime is the perfect time to inject as much colour as possible into your Perth rental property.
