Obscure Maintenance Tasks: Don’t Overlook Your Mead Rental Home’s Hidden Systems

Working HVAC Unit Outside a Mead Rental PropertyOn the subject of the maintenance plans for your rental property in Mead, the old adage “out of sight, out of mind” is applicable. A great deal of the crucial systems that ensure a rental home is in good shape are hidden, and because they aren’t visible, the upkeep of these things are often forgotten.

However, consistent maintenance is equally important for both these unseen items and their more visible counterparts. For instance, when a hot water heater operates perfectly for years, it tends to be taken for granted. But after some time, sediment from the water can collect in the bottom of the water heater, causing rust and other problems. For this reason, it’s important to flush out a hot water heater regularly to keep it running properly.

Along with ensuring that your rental home has plenty of hot water is making sure that your sewer line is clear. Everyone wants to avoid a backed-up sink, tub, or drain. Even though it’s often overlooked, it’s important to have your main sewer line checked on a regular basis to prevent drainage problems down the road.

One more frequently overlooked maintenance item is the property’s heating and cooling system. Along with servicing the air conditioning unit and furnace once a year, it’s crucial to also clean all ducts and vents. Dust and pollutants can collect inside a home’s ductwork, reducing the system’s efficiency and exposing your tenants to trapped allergens.

When the important systems are operating smoothly, keeping your Mead rental home filled and your tenants happy would be much easier. Properly maintained systems tend to need fewer repairs, saving you a lot of money later on. Tenant retention goes hand-in-hand with proactive property maintenance, which is one of the areas of excellence of our team of property management experts.
