Why Performance Fabric is the Best Choice for Rental Homes

Investing in either long-term or short-term vacation rental homes is a smart financial choice for many.  However, protecting that investment can be challenging when it comes to property wear-and-tear.  The potential for trouble increases when the home comes furnished.

How many times have you heard the driver of a rental car exclaim, just before revving the engine or making a risky traffic maneuver, “No worries!  It’s a RENTAL!”? Unfortunately, the same laissez-faire attitude often applies to rental properties as well.   

How many renters will take the same care as you might to remove a coffee stain from the sofa?  Or, if you have a pet-friendly Airbnb property, will the guests be sure that muddy paws stay off the upholstery?  Even if you offer a handy print-out of friendly stain removal tricks, your guests may likely shrug off that late-night nacho spill instead of reaching for the cleaning products. 

Wouldn’t your worries be reduced significantly if your rental furniture was covered in beautiful stain resistant, durable fabric?

Here are three reasons to protect your rental property by investing in performance fabric:

1.) Reduce cleaning costs.

Upholstery cleaning is not inexpensive, and it can be time-consuming for DIYers.  Obviously, you already have to invest in cleaning the property to turn over your vacation rental between occupants, but you could save time AND money by investing in stain resistant performance fabric so that furniture always stays crisp and clean.  Should the inevitable spill happen, you can easily wipe it away without fear of deep stain penetration.  

2.)Keep furniture longer.

If furniture looks stained and dirty, vacation-renters will either complain or opt not to return to your rental property.  They may even take to social media with their complaints.  If you have stain-resistant performance fabric like LiveSmart, your furniture will retain its fresh good looks throughout years of rentals!

3.) Worry less.

Honestly, I think peace of mind far outweighs the cost of performance fabric.  You can rest assured that your Airbnb, beach, or mountain rental home still looks great for your next occupants without requesting a series of photos from your cleaning crew or property manager.  And the next time YOU decide to take a getaway?  You can enter without fear of what stains you’ll find!

Finally, one of the best things about LiveSmart performance fabric is that it comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns that will fit almost any style.  Yes, it’s practical and alluring!  It may just be the solution you’ve been looking for in your rental home.
