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. Consider a hot water heater that works well for years and may go unnoticed. As time passes, sediment can collect at the bottom, leading to rust and other issues.

Therefore, regularly flushing the hot water heater is necessary to maintain its performance. This can help you avoid expensive repairs or a new water heater, ensuring your investment lasts longer.

Sewer Lines

In addition to maintaining a supply of hot water, you should ensure your sewer line is unobstructed. No one wants to deal with a backed-up sink, tub, or drain. Regular inspection of your main sewer line, despite being frequently overlooked, is vital for avoiding drainage problems.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Another often overlooked maintenance task is the heating and cooling system of the property. Besides yearly maintenance of the air conditioner and furnace, cleaning every duct and vent is essential. Dust and pollutants can gather in the ductwork, decreasing system efficiency and increasing allergen exposure for tenants.

Keeping systems in good working order ensures your rental property stays occupied and tenants are happy. Fewer repairs are needed for well-maintained systems, which saves you money down the line.
