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. 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. For example, a hot water heater can function well for years and often gets taken for granted. Over time, though, sediment can accumulate at the bottom, leading to rust and other issues.

This is why regularly flushing a hot water heater is vital to keep it working well. This can help you avoid expensive repairs or a new water heater, ensuring your investment lasts longer.

Sewer Lines

Besides guaranteeing plenty of hot water, you must ensure the sewer line is clear. A backed-up sink, tub, or drain is something nobody wants to face. Regular inspection of your main sewer line, despite being frequently overlooked, is vital for avoiding drainage problems.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Another maintenance task that is repeatedly neglected is the property’s heating and cooling 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.

Keeping systems in good working order ensures your rental property stays occupied and tenants are happy. Well-maintained systems require fewer repairs, saving you money in the long run.
