Maintenance of vac cleaners in shared student houses.
Last term I began a Hoover maintenance check; changing bags and filters,unblocking hoses,sweeper brushes and testing belts. This is working as the houses are cleaner but it's time consuming.
I wondered what other landlords do to maintain machines they provide?
I ask that my properties are 'regularly' cleaned so I feel I must provide the means for tenants to accomplish this. Over the years I've:
provided 'basic' vacs that are cheap to replace if over used, provided the first vac and emphasising a mis-used machine must be replaced or repaired, made deductions from deposit for a [ 3 month old] vac found [clogged up]dumped in the wheelie bin.
Any other tried and tested strategies gratefully received.
