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

Handy tool bag resting on HVAC equipment.The saying “out of sight, out of mind” frequently applies to rental property maintenance. Important systems in a rental property are usually hidden, making their maintenance easy to overlook.

Water Heaters

Conversely, regular maintenance of these hidden elements is just as important as that of the visible ones. A home’s hot water heater, for example, can operate efficiently for years and is often ignored. Over time, water sediment can gather at the bottom, resulting in rust and other problems.

Hence, it’s crucial to flush out the hot water heater regularly for proper function. Regular maintenance can prevent costly repairs or replacements, preserving your investment’s longevity.

Sewer Lines

Besides ensuring your rental home has ample hot water, you should also keep the sewer line clear. The last thing anyone wants is a clogged sink, tub, or drain. Checking your main sewer line regularly, although often ignored, is key to preventing future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Another commonly forgotten maintenance area is the property’s HVAC system. Along with maintaining the AC and furnace annually, it’s important to clean every duct and vent. Dust and pollutants in the ductwork can reduce system efficiency and expose tenants to allergens.

Efficient systems ensure your rental property remains occupied and tenants are content. Regular maintenance leads to fewer repairs for systems, saving you money in the future.
