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

In contrast, routine maintenance of these less visible parts is as essential as that of the more obvious ones. A home’s hot water heater, for example, can operate efficiently for years and is often ignored. Eventually, sediment can build up in the bottom, causing rust and other complications.

Hence, it’s crucial to flush out the hot water heater regularly for proper function. By flushing it, you can prevent costly repairs or the need for a new heater, extending your investment’s lifespan.

Sewer Lines

In addition to having plenty of hot water, it’s important to ensure your sewer line is clear. No one wants to deal with 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

Another commonly forgotten maintenance area is the property’s HVAC system. Yearly maintenance of the air conditioning unit and furnace, along with cleaning every duct and vent, is crucial. Dust and pollutants can build up in the ductwork, lowering efficiency and exposing tenants to allergens.

Efficient systems ensure your rental property remains occupied and tenants are content. Systems that are properly maintained often need fewer repairs, saving you money over time.
