Tip for landlords

I am a cleaner for a landlord who owns several apartment buildings in Prince George. I take great pride in my job, and enjoy making the places nice and clean. As I travel around Prince George I see apartment buildings where there are piles of garbage by the bins and broken pieces of furniture on the grounds, broken glass, cigarette butts, needles, condoms and toilet paper. There are entry ways and hallways with carpeting that has not met a vacuum cleaner for months.

I see a solution. Respect your tenants. Give them what they pay for.

I have observed disregard by landlords to the day-to-day expectations of tenants for the rent they pay.

Spring has sprung and normal outside cleaning could be done by now.

I observed that it did not matter what neighborhood an apartment building was in. My previous prejudice was that it would be by neighborhood. It is not.
