Prepping for an Open Home: the Essentials
When you’re getting ready to sell your house, one of the most important things on the to-do list is preparing for open home days. Your real estate agent will be running the actual open home of course, but that doesn’t mean you should just hand them the keys and walk away without any prep whatsoever.
An immaculate house leaves a great impression, but don’t feel like you need to do it all yourself. With a house on the market, you have enough on your mind! The team at El Contractor can help you out with a wide range of services that will allow your home to really shine when it counts. Read on to discover a few of the ways that we can get you ready for an open home.
Our Home Owner Package
This package covers all the essentials that you may be too busy to take care of. A house wash is always a great start - this often neglected aspect of house maintenance makes a huge difference to how your place looks on first sight, especially if it’s been a while since the last wash.
Gutter cleaning has a little less visible impact… unless of course there’s a downpour and all of a sudden there are sheets of water coming off your roof! If you catch it early enough, having clean gutters can also prevent unsightly elements like rust, algae or mold from taking hold in the first place.
One thing that will certainly make a visible distance is professionally cleaned windows. El Contractor uses filtered water to ensure there’s no residue left over once the job is done - your windows will be so pristine, you’ll wonder if they’re even still there.
Our CarPet Cleaning Package
For some people, the services included in the Home Owner package will be more than enough, but if you have some furry friends that live with you, you might want to take a look at our CarPet Cleaning package. Even if your pets are well trained and impeccably behaved, their hair and scent can still build up - often without you really noticing it!
A thorough carpet cleaning is the cornerstone of this package, which can be useful even for those who don’t have pets, but that’s far from all that El Contractor offers. We also cover stain removal and odour neutralisation, and can even sort out anti-bug spraying - though we’d recommend that any pest control measures are sorted well before any open home.
Remember, when you have an open home, you don’t have to sort out everything yourself! Get in touch with the El Contractor team and we’ll have your place looking incredible in no time.
