Cache Valley and Bear Lake
Summer is here. This is the time of year when people would normally be flocking to Northern Utah’s most famous vacation destinations: Bear Lake. Cache Valley has it’s own spots, too; First Dam and Green Canyon. Rental and vacation homes are fairly common in this area, as well as cabins all up and down Green Canyon.
The outbreak may have slowed this all down some. It’s hard to guess what the actual effects will be. We seemed to be doing fine until a recent surge in May. At the moment, things are still open, but with threats by the state government of a shut down order if things don’t turn around, it’s hard to say. Even without a shut down order, it’s already pretty clear that this summer will see decreased tourist revenue all over the country. This doesn’t mean people aren’t going on vacation, though.
Vacation Homes and Rentals
While rentals and travel are down, they aren’t out. There is still a significant portion of the population out and about this summer, especially since the situation seems to be improving in many places. That means people need places to stay. If you’re a rental and vacation property owner, you want to make the most of that, right? To do that, you want to make your rental property as attractive as possible to visiting tourists. In this time of viral fears, that means you want to make sure everything is properly cleaned.
It’s not just vacationers who are moving around, either. We’re also seeing a steady migration of people to new homes and new places. Whether it’s people looking to move away with new jobs, or just young people moving into a new home for the first time, there is still a market for real estate. As with rental and vacation homes, people want to know their new house is cleaned before they move it. “Deep Cleaning” is trending on Facebook as people look for those who can help them get their new place ready to live in.
It’s probably a good idea. It’s easy to take out the trash, clean the windows, scrub the bathrooms, and vacuum the carpets. Under normal circumstances, that’d be enough, but that’s not the case this year. This year, we need to contend with the virus, which means deep cleaning. Deep cleaning involves sanitizing hard surfaces with antibacterial cleaners, thorough scrubbing, and making sure you get those hard to reach places.
Deep cleaning is a much bigger job than you’d usually have to do. You need to do it before each new guest moves in, too. You can do a pretty good job of killing off the virus, but as soon as someone who has it comes into the area, all that work is undone, so you can’t just do one big cleaning job and think you’re covered.
Deep Cleaning for New Homes
Before you move into a new home, you’ll want the same deep cleaning done, too. Better safe than sorry, right? Did you know that you can add the cleaning process to the negotiations of the sales agreement? Given that proper deep cleaning can take a lot of extra time and costs more than you’d normally expect to pay for cleaning costs, it’s definitely worth considering factoring it into the closing costs. Even just getting half the costs covered by the seller could be a huge saving.
