Unsolicited Advice for Landlords



Published:

We’ve noticed that it’s become increasingly common for rental properties to feature laminate or tile flooring instead of wall-to-wall carpeting. This is such a good idea, it ought to be the norm. Old carpet is the most haunted part of any rental property, every stain and musty smell suggesting a horrible god-only-knows-what-the-last-tenants-were-doing-in-this-place story. Renters can attack their bathrooms and kitchens with bleach and feel reasonably sure they’ve sanitized the place, but carpets—you just can’t ever get them clean enough.

Landlords of Honolulu, tear out your carpets! You and your tenants will be much happier.
