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

Handy tool bag resting on HVAC equipment.When it comes to rental property maintenance, the adage “out of sight, out of mind” often holds true. Key systems in rental homes are often out of sight, which can result in neglected maintenance.

Water Heaters

However, maintaining these unseen components is equally crucial as maintaining the visible ones. Take a hot water heater, for instance; it can work properly for years and is often overlooked. With time, sediment can settle at the bottom, causing rust and various problems.

Consequently, regularly flushing the hot water heater is important for its proper operation. Doing this can help you avoid costly repairs or replacement, prolonging the life of your investment.

Sewer Lines

Besides ensuring your rental home has ample hot water, you should also keep the sewer line clear. The last thing anyone wants is a clogged sink, tub, or drain. Regularly checking your main sewer line, though often overlooked, is crucial to prevent future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

The heating and cooling system is another frequently neglected maintenance aspect. In addition to annual maintenance of the AC unit and furnace, it’s crucial to clean all ducts and vents. Dust and pollutants that collect in ductwork can reduce efficiency and increase tenants’ exposure to allergens.

Well-maintained systems help keep your rental property occupied and tenants pleased. Fewer repairs are needed for well-maintained systems, which saves you money down the line.
