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

Handy tool bag resting on HVAC equipment.The phrase “out of sight, out of mind” often fits when it comes to maintaining a rental property. Key systems in rental homes are often out of sight, which can result in neglected maintenance.

Water Heaters

Alternatively, the upkeep of these hidden elements is just as critical as that of the more apparent ones. An example is a hot water heater, which can run smoothly for years and be taken for granted. 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 guaranteeing plenty of hot water, you must ensure the sewer line is clear. A backed-up sink, tub, or drain is something nobody wants to face. Regularly checking your main sewer line, though often overlooked, is crucial to prevent future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

The property’s heating and cooling system is another aspect that is often forgotten. Besides yearly maintenance of the air conditioner and furnace, cleaning every duct and vent is essential. Dust and pollutants can build up in the ductwork, lowering efficiency and exposing tenants to allergens.

Keeping systems in good working order ensures your rental property stays occupied and tenants are happy. Well-maintained systems require fewer repairs, saving you money in the long run.
