Having a backyard pool or spa can help to beat the heat in Summer or keep cozy in cooler temperatures, and can provide unlimited (and free!) enjoyment for the whole family. If these reasons weren’t enough to make you want a pool, consider the value that a water feature can add to your property.
There is no doubt that a hot tub or pool will add value to any property but just how much is up for debate. It is estimated that values can increase anywhere from 5-8%, but only if these features can be seen as investments. Lucky for property owners in the Vancouver area, Puddle Pool specialists are ready to help maintain, improve and perfect the condition of both outdoor and indoor pool and hot tubs.
How a Pool Impacts Your Home Value
Appliances can add a lot of value to a property, or they can take it away. A stainless steel refrigerator can really help to sell a space while a dated or broken one can deter potential buyers. When property features are looking weathered or worn down, all that house hunters will see are future bills. On the other hand, a clean and manicured pool area can be a major selling feature.
For those looking to sell a property, fixing up a pool area is a must. For those just looking to upkeep their current water feature, routine care is necessary to keep systems running smoothly. Without proper care, the condition of your water feature can quickly go from bad to worse, costing a ton of money in the long run.
Whether you are looking for a one-time cleanup before sale or are in need of a reputable company to maintain your pool over a long period, Puddle Pool specialists can handle it all.
Overhaul Cleanings: In-depth cleaning can be done in accordance with a sale or new buy. When you are looking to sell your property, it is important to put your best foot forward and that means your pool. Scrubbing steps and liners can give any water feature a fresh face but the devil is in the details. Caring for filtration systems and balancing chemicals will give water a crystal clear appearance.
Regular Care and Maintenance: Routine care can help to prevent the need for costly repairs or replacements. Keeping clean water also eliminates the threat of recreational water illness. This is key for any environment but is exceptionally important for those high traffic areas like hotels and community centres. A pool can attract many guests within the hospitality industry and a clean one can keep them coming back, while avoiding any unpleasantness from RWIs.
No matter the age of your pool, proper care is always important. Keep your water feature in the best possible condition by having a professional handle your day to day care, as well as opening and closing practices.
