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

Working HVAC Unit Outside a Manhattan Rental PropertyWhen dealing with matters related to Manhattan rental property maintenance plans, the old adage “out of sight, out of mind” is still appropriate. A lot of the central structures that compose the core ideas of rental home are concealed from plain sight, and frequently, maintaining them could be disregarded by accident.

However, consistent maintenance on these unnoticed things is just as vital as those that can easily be seen. Take, for instance, a home’s hot water heater can operate just fine for years and become neglected. But through the years, sediment from the water can collect in the bottom of the water heater, causing rust and other problems. For this reason, it’s important to flush out a hot water heater regularly to keep it running properly.

Along with ensuring that your rental home has plenty of hot water is making sure that your sewer line is clear. The last thing anybody wants is a backed-up sink, tub, or drain. Even though regularly disregarded, it’s important to have your main sewer line checked on a regular basis to prevent drainage problems down the road.

One other often overlooked maintenance item is the property’s heating and cooling system. Other than making sure you are keeping track of the air conditioning unit and furnace each year, it’s equally important to clean all ducts and vents too. Dust and pollutants can collect inside a home’s ductwork, reducing the system’s efficiency and exposing your tenants to trapped allergens.

When you are taking care of what’s important, it’s going to be easier to keep your Manhattan rental home occupied and your tenants happy. Properly maintained systems tend to need fewer repairs, saving you a lot of money later on.
