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. Important systems in a rental property are usually hidden, making their maintenance easy to overlook.

Water Heaters

However, maintaining these unseen components is equally crucial as maintaining the visible ones. For example, a hot water heater can function well for years and often gets taken for granted. With time, sediment can settle at the bottom, causing rust and various problems.

This is why regularly flushing a hot water heater is vital to keep it working well. Regular maintenance can prevent costly repairs or replacements, preserving your investment’s longevity.

Sewer Lines

Besides guaranteeing plenty of hot water, you must ensure the sewer line is clear. The last thing anyone wants is a clogged sink, tub, or drain. Checking your main sewer line regularly, although often ignored, is key to preventing future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Another maintenance task that is repeatedly neglected is the property’s heating and cooling system. Yearly maintenance of the air conditioning unit and furnace, along with cleaning every duct and vent, is crucial. Dust and pollutants can gather in the ductwork, decreasing system efficiency and increasing allergen exposure for tenants.

Well-maintained systems help keep your rental property occupied and tenants pleased. Maintained systems typically require less repair, saving you significant money later.
