Seasonal Maintenance Tips from the Leading Salt Lake City Property Management Company

With summer winding down quickly and the cooler weather approaching, we recommend some basic services to protect the home and prepare it for colder winter air:

  1. Avoid expensive repairs by servicing your heating and air conditioning systems. Clean or replace filters, remove build up on fans, cover the outside A/C unit, bleed air from radiators, and check the basement humidity levels.
  2. Step outside for a breath of fresh air … and enjoy the fall landscaping. Fertilization, pruning, and any other lawn care services (such as sprinkler line maintenance) should be completed to keep up the curb appeal of your home.
  3. Clear rain gutters of any debris from leaves and needles, etc.
  4. Got a fireplace? Time for a chimney sweep! Get it in clean working order so tenants can be comfortable and your property safe all season long.

 

Salt Lake City Property Managers Are Not Alone in Maintenance Responsibilities

As a property manager, you do have obligations to keep the property well-maintained, your tenants do as well. Here are a few seasonal items they are responsible for:

  1. Take care of any safety hazards. Any items that pose a accident such as bulky carpets or loose hand railings should be fixed.
  2. Check electrical sockets in use to ensure they are not warm to the touch.
  3. Inspect fire extinguishers to confirm they are properly charged.
  4. Check any alarms throughout the home and install fresh batteries.
  5. Review household safety and emergency plans, locate gas and water shut off valves.
  6. Clean/replace filters and vents as needed and vacuum under all appliances.
  7. Change furnace filters on a monthly basis.
  8. Ensure all doors and windows shut tightly.
  9. Clean all drains and traps to ensure proper drainage.
  10. Tidy up outside by storing hoses and similar items.
