The critical role high-pressure cleaning plays in commercial property management 

As a landlord, your ability to manage your rental investments efficiently is crucial for maximising your returns. It’s essential to anticipate and mitigate as many costs as possible.

Regular property maintenance plays a significant role in optimising your investment income, and efficient budgeting can help improve your overall returns.

Investment property maintenance costs

The general rule of thumb for budgeting for home maintenance costs is between 1% and 4%.

Many landlords follow the ‘1% rule’, which suggests allocating 1% of your property’s value each year to upkeep. This is adjusted based on the property’s age and condition.

Another school of thought suggests budgeting more than 1% for rental properties as tenants may not properly maintain the property.

However much you choose to allocate, consistent maintenance is vital to prevent expensive repairs in the future.

Preventative care for long-term savings

    As part of a holistic maintenance plan, high-pressure cleaning can help you keep on top of residential and commercial property maintenance.  

    This essential maintenance practice helps improve your property’s appearance and protect your investment from damaging environmental elements. By incorporating pressure cleaning into your routine maintenance, you can efficiently identify and manage minor upkeep tasks, ensuring issues are addressed before they escalate into costly repairs.

      Capitalising on your commercial spaces

      For businesses, the condition of a property can significantly influence customer and tenant perception and retention.

      Our high-pressure cleaning services help maintain your property’s exterior, which is vital for attracting and retaining tenants and customers. A well-maintained space can influence customer and employee loyalty and present a positive image.

      We suggest the following regular commercial pressure cleaning tasks:

      • Cleaning building facades
      • Washing sidewalks and walkways
      • Removing graffiti from walls
      • Cleaning parking lots and garages
      • Degreasing industrial areas and bin bays
      • Washing outdoor furniture and fixtures
      • Clearing dumpsters and waste areas
      • Removing mould and algae growth
      • Window washing

      EOFY tax benefits of maintenance cleaning

      Businesses, investors and property managers should consider high-pressure cleaning services before the end of the financial year on June 30 to benefit from tax deductions. 

      It could be worthwhile booking your high-pressure cleaning services before June 30 to take advantage of tax deductions. This is especially beneficial for business premises and investment properties generating income. 

      According to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), the cost of maintenance related to wear and tear from rental activities and keeping your property in a tenantable condition could be immediately tax-deductible. This applies if your property continues to be rented or remains available for rent during the maintenance.

      Important note: We’re pressure cleaners, not tax professionals, so it’s essential you check with your accountant to confirm what maintenance deductions you can claim.
