The Importance of Conducting Spring Maintenance

The rain is falling, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining, which means it must be spring! It’s also a great season to “spring” into action on your rental property. Throughout the year, your rental property undergoes wear and tear from the rain, the heat, and the cold. So take the time this spring to perform some maintenance to improve the value of your property and keep it looking great on the inside and out.

Check Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Units

These units can get dirt trapped inside them which makes filters clog and not work as efficiently. To prolong the life of these units, clean or replace the AC and ventilation system filters. This seasonal service will keep tenants comfortable when the weather warms up and helps you avoid expensive equipment repairs. If your rental property has a basement, check the level of humidity and any humidifiers to ensure they are working properly. If you don’t feel that you have the kind of expertise to make sure these units are working as they should contact a professional to help.

Conduct a Spring Property Inspection

Springtime is a great time to have an inspector walk around the inside and outside of your rental property and check that all windows, doors, locks, plumbing, appliances, and other aspects of the property are in order. An inspector can report any needed repairs and save you money in the long run. They can also verify lease compliance in a subtle way and give you a heads up if any terms of the lease agreement are being violated such as verifying the number of tenants or pets.

Perform Landscape Maintenance

You want the outside of your rental property to have that “curb” appeal. Any landscaping you do will only improve the look of the house. Take care of fertilization, pruning, weeding, lawn aeration, overseeding, and remove plants or roots that impact the siding or foundation of the house.
