Obscure Maintenance Tasks: Don’t Overlook Your Addison Rental Home’s Hidden Systems

Working HVAC Unit Outside a Addison Rental PropertyWhen you want to make sure you are making a grand Addison rental property maintenance plans, the old adage “out of sight, out of mind” often applies. Several of the necessary but important systems that compose the primary workings of a rental home is not seen on the outside, and more often than not, it can be quite a task to remember to maintain them.

All rental owners must understand the basic principle that these items that are not seen immediately are equally important as those that are visible. For example, a home’s hot water heater could be working great for many years and because of that fact can probably be overlooked. As time goes by, sediment from the water can collect in the bottom of the water heater, causing rust and other problems. For this reason, it’s important to flush out a hot water heater regularly to keep it running properly.

Along with ensuring that your rental home has plenty of hot water is making sure that your sewer line is clear. The last thing anybody wants is a backed-up sink, tub, or drain. Although often overlooked, it’s important to have your main sewer line checked on a regular basis to prevent drainage problems down the road.

One more frequently neglected maintenance item is the property’s heating and cooling system. In addition to overhauling the air conditioning unit and furnace once a year, it’s just as crucial to clean all ducts and vents as well. Dust and pollutants can collect inside a home’s ductwork, reducing the system’s efficiency and exposing your tenants to trapped allergens.

When the essential systems are functioning right, it then becomes manageable to keep your Addison rental home filled and your tenants content.
