How and Why to do a Damage Check Upon Arrival in a Vacation Home

Orlando Vacation HomesHave you booked a vacation home for your stay? Wow, you must be really excited to spend some relaxing and exciting moments with your friends or family. But when you arrive at your booked vacation rental, you need to do a checking of the vacation home. Read on to know how and why.

Check whether anything is broken
When you arrive at the vacation home, do not get engaged in viewing the beauty or checking out the amenities which are there in store for you. Instead, walk to the property and try to ascertain if anything is broken or not. If you discover that someone is broken, you need to instantly inform about it to the Orlando Vacation Homes owner or to the property manager. Consider the vacation rental similar to a rental car. You surely walk around the car checking whether all its systems and parts are working property to ensure a safe journey.

In most of the cases, the property manager or the owner of the vacation home may be aware about the issue. In this way, you can ensure that your security deposit is safe and the owner or the property manager will not deduct the repair charges from your security deposit.

The items which may typically be broken
The items which are most likely to be found broken may be the ones which the guests often use. The property manager or the owner may have overlooked these items or may have failed to find the issue. Large numbers of Disney Vacation Rentals owners reveal that they often find sewer or water issues in their vacation home after a guest has left. The other items which are most likely to be found damaged are:

• Appliances
• Fold-out beds
• Television
• Telephone
• Toilets
• Showers
• Faucets
• Air conditioners
• Doorknobs
• Grill

The look of these items clearly indicates that they have been abused or misused by previous bad renters and need to be fixed immediately. Dents in the drywall, water damage, broken cupboards, damaged windows are also quite common.

You will surely not want to pay for the damages done by previous guests of the property. For this reason, do check all these aforementioned things when you arrive at the vacation home. If everything is fine, you can get along with your vacation. But if you find anything broken or damaged, instantly call the owner of the property or property manager and intimate them about the damage!
