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

Handy tool bag resting on HVAC equipment.The saying “out of sight, out of mind” frequently applies to rental property maintenance. Many vital systems in a rental home are unseen, and their maintenance is often forgotten.

Water Heaters

On the flip side, caring for these unnoticed aspects is as vital as attending to the noticeable ones. A home’s hot water heater, for example, can operate efficiently for years and is often ignored. As time passes, sediment can collect at the bottom, leading to rust and other issues.

Hence, it’s crucial to flush out the hot water heater regularly for proper function. This can help you avoid expensive repairs or a new water heater, ensuring your investment lasts longer.

Sewer Lines

Along with making sure there’s plenty of hot water, you should also keep the sewer line clear. The last thing anyone wants is a clogged sink, tub, or drain. Even though it’s often neglected, having your main sewer line inspected regularly is essential to avoid drainage problems later.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Another commonly forgotten maintenance area is the property’s HVAC system. In addition to annual maintenance of the AC unit and furnace, it’s crucial to clean all ducts and vents. Dust and pollutants accumulating in ductwork can decrease efficiency and expose tenants to allergens.

Well-maintained systems help keep your rental property occupied and tenants pleased. Regular maintenance leads to fewer repairs for systems, saving you money in the future.
