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

Handy tool bag resting on HVAC equipment.The old saying “out of sight, out of mind” is often true for rental property maintenance. Essential systems that make up a rental home are often concealed, and their maintenance is frequently neglected.

Water Heaters

Alternatively, the upkeep of these hidden elements is just as critical as that of the more apparent ones. Take a hot water heater, for instance; it can work properly for years and is often overlooked. Over time, though, sediment can accumulate at the bottom, leading to rust and other issues.

Hence, it’s crucial to flush out the hot water heater regularly for proper function. By flushing it, you can prevent costly repairs or the need for a new heater, extending your investment’s lifespan.

Sewer Lines

Along with making sure there’s plenty of hot water, you should also keep the sewer line clear. A backed-up sink, tub, or drain is the last thing anyone wants. Checking your main sewer line regularly, although often ignored, is key to preventing future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

The property’s heating and cooling system is another aspect that is often forgotten. 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.

Keeping systems in good working order ensures your rental property stays occupied and tenants are happy. Systems that are properly maintained often need fewer repairs, saving you money over time.
