Tips For Maintaining Rental Properties In The Spring

Rental property management companies know spring is the time for maintenance, specifically, creating and completing a spring maintenance schedule. Spring is the perfect time to get rental properties in top condition for tenants who have put off a move and students who will be ending their leases.

Exterior items that every rental property needs addressing:

  • Check the roof for leaks and shingle problems.
  • Maintaining and clearing gutters
  • Landscaping cleanup and spring refresh
  • Security checks at entryways and exits
  • Siding and decking inspection
  • Inspecting concrete driveways and walkways

Interior items that every rental property needs addressing:

  • Clean and maintain the heating/cooling system
  • Make sure there are no moisture or mold issues
  • Look for holes or cracks in caulking or grout
  • Make sure there are no moisture or mold issues
  • Check appliances
  • Clean fireplaces if they exist
  • Fire systems, from alarms to sprinklers, are all tested

The best rental property management companies work with contractors who have experience taking care of rental properties.
