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. Important systems in a rental property are usually hidden, making their maintenance easy to overlook.

Water Heaters

Alternatively, the upkeep of these hidden elements is just as critical as that of the more apparent 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.

Therefore, regularly flushing the hot water heater is necessary to maintain its performance. Doing this can help you avoid costly repairs or replacement, prolonging the life of your investment.

Sewer Lines

In addition to having plenty of hot water, it’s important to ensure your sewer line is clear. The last thing anyone wants is a clogged 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 heating and cooling system is another frequently neglected maintenance aspect. Besides yearly maintenance of the air conditioner and furnace, cleaning every duct and vent is essential. Dust and pollutants that collect in ductwork can reduce efficiency and increase tenants’ exposure 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.
