Maintaining a luxury home differs from maintaining a standard home. The same goes for maintaining a beach home. So what about maintaining a luxury beach home? Here are three effective ways you can do exactly that.
Invest in top quality security
As your own property, and a luxury one at that, it will be your priority to keep your home safe and secure. One of the very best ways you can do this is to employ top security measures. Protect the perimeters with a CCTV system. This allows you to preempt anything happening to your home, and it allows you to see the culprit. Having a clear image and footage to take to the police will make a big difference. Also, consider your alarm system; have one installed in each part of the home. Monitoring your home to keep it safe is part of maintaining its appearance and how safe you feel when you are there.
Employ year-round cleaning services
It could be the case that you visit your luxury beach home all year round. However, it may also be that you only spend a small portion of the year there, or just one season. Even if you are not going to be there, it is wise to employ year-round maid cleaning services. Dust, allergens, and dirt build up quickly, even when the house is not occupied. Allowing these elements to build up is bad news for your interiors and furniture. In doing this, you are not just looking after your properties cleanliness, but also the health and safety of it.
Having regular cleaning services when you are not occupying your property, but even more so when you are there. If it is your beach home, there is a pretty good chance you are there to relax. Relaxation very rarely involves cleaning for yourself! When employing a company look out for the small details. It’s these that make the difference. You want reassurance that bathroom cloths will never be used in your kitchen, for example. Good companies also give you a full list of everything that will be covered in the clean, which you can add to or take away from to suit your needs.
Look after the exterior
Looking after the exterior of your beach home is important for a number of reasons. Firstly, it vastly improves the aesthetics of your property if everything is neat. So, in your garden, be sure your borders are trimmed, the grass is cut, and the flowers are tended to. You won’t get a second chance to make a first impression when visitors come to call. Secondly, a well tended exterior is a sign of present occupiers. If you allow things to get overgrown or dirty, you are giving the impression that the house is vacant. This is a red flag to criminals who may be looking for homes to break into.
