With the rental market becoming more competitive, it’s important that your property is in the best shape it can be to attract tenants.

Hotplates can cope much better with thorough scrubbing than a lot of other hobs, which is fortunate, given how messy they can look at the end of a tenancy. Here’s what to do to bring your electric hob back to life:
