Fall is almost here. Specialized RPM, the property management company Fort Worth landlords have trusted for over 30 years, wants to share a few seasonal maintenance reminders. When you are proactive about maintaining your home, you keep your property value high and protect your tenants. Costly repairs can be avoided through low-hassle, low-cost seasonal maintenance.
FOUR SERVICES FORT WORTH PROPERTY MANAGERS RECOMMEND
- Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Maintenance
This maintenance is key to preserving the life of your cooling and heating systems. With proper upkeep, you can avoid costly repairs that arise from neglect. Simple maintenance of these systems includes: making sure your heating system is in good working order, replacing filters, and cleaning airway buildup. Also, bleeding radiators, covering outdoor AC units, checking basement humidity, and cleaning humidifiers and dehumidifiers should be done when applicable.
- Property Inspections
Fall is a great time to schedule your regular property inspection. These inspections should be used to check the home inside and out. Fort Worth property managers also use regular inspections to ensure lease compliance and check for needed repairs.
Proper landscaping maintenance will preserve your property value. This can include tasks like fertilization and pruning. It is also important to remove or trim any plants or roots that come in contact with and could damage your rental property.
- Chimney Sweep
If your rental property has a wood-burning appliance or fireplace, our Fort Worth property managers suggest you regularly clean and inspect them. Sweeping the chimney, inspecting its condition, and removing any obstructions will ensure the safety of your home and your tenants.
