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. Many vital systems in a rental home are unseen, and their maintenance is often forgotten.

Water Heaters

However, maintaining these unseen components is equally crucial as maintaining the visible 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.

Thus, regularly flushing a hot water heater is essential to ensure 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

Another maintenance task that is repeatedly neglected is the property’s heating and cooling system. 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.

Properly functioning systems keep your rental property occupied and your tenants happy. Well-maintained systems require fewer repairs, saving you money in the long run.
