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

Conversely, regular maintenance of these hidden elements is just as important as that of the visible ones. Consider a hot water heater that works well for years and may go unnoticed. Eventually, sediment can build up in the bottom, causing rust and other complications.

Thus, regularly flushing a hot water heater is essential to ensure proper operation. This helps prevent expensive repairs or the need for a replacement, ensuring your investment lasts.

Sewer Lines

Besides guaranteeing plenty of hot water, you must ensure the sewer line is clear. No one wants to deal with a backed-up sink, tub, or drain. Regularly checking your main sewer line, though often overlooked, is crucial to prevent future drainage issues.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Another often overlooked maintenance task is the heating and cooling system of the property. Besides maintaining the AC and furnace each year, cleaning all ducts and vents is vital. Dust and pollutants can gather in the ductwork, decreasing system efficiency and increasing allergen exposure for tenants.

Properly functioning systems keep your rental property occupied and your tenants happy. Maintained systems typically require less repair, saving you significant money later.
