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

Handy tool bag resting on HVAC equipment.“Out of sight, out of mind” is a common adage that applies to rental property upkeep. Many crucial systems in a rental home are hidden from view, often leading to overlooked maintenance.

Water Heaters

On the flip side, caring for these unnoticed aspects is as vital as attending to the noticeable ones. For example, a hot water heater can function well for years and often gets taken for granted. Over time, though, sediment can accumulate at the bottom, leading to rust and other issues.

This is why regularly flushing a hot water heater is vital to keep it working well. This helps prevent expensive repairs or the need for a replacement, ensuring your investment lasts.

Sewer Lines

In addition to having plenty of hot water, it’s important to ensure your sewer line is clear. The least desirable situation is a backed-up sink, tub, or drain. Although often disregarded, it’s essential to regularly check your main sewer line to prevent future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

The property’s heating and cooling system is another aspect that is often forgotten. Besides maintaining the AC and furnace each year, cleaning all ducts and vents is vital. Dust and pollutants can build up in the ductwork, lowering efficiency and exposing tenants to allergens.

When systems work correctly, it helps keep your rental property full and tenants satisfied. Systems that are properly maintained often need fewer repairs, saving you money over time.
