Kitchen cabinets can be a faff to clean, but they add an important finishing touch to a kitchen – and everything that can attract tenants counts in the current rental market.
To help you get your property ready for its next viewing, we’ve teamed up with Harriet, a Simply Business customer and owner of Calm Oasis Cleaners, to put together a series of DIY videos particularly for landlords.
Kitchens can really make or break a property and unfortunately, they’re often more likely to break it.
Because of what they’re used for, kitchens are always more likely to get dirty than most other areas of the house and, depending on what your previous tenants liked cooking, they can end up a real pain to clean.
Kitchen cabinets, in particular, can get overlooked in favour of the really noticeable features like hobs, ovens and sinks. However, discerning tenants are likely to check your cabinets to see if they would be happy storing their food and utensils in them. Damp, stained or otherwise under-par cabinets can be very off-putting.
The way you clean your cabinets will depend on their design as well as what they’re made out of, but there are some general principles that apply.
