Spring is here, and it’s finally starting to warm up in Middle Tennessee. Trees are in bloom and birds are chirping, but Spring also means it’s time for some important seasonal maintenance for your rental:
Gutter Cleaning & Roof Inspection
You already know to clean your gutters in the fall, but it’s important to clean your gutters before and after the wet seasons. After all, winter storms can bring along loose debris. Check your gutters and the downspout gooseneck for any gunk that can lead to a clog. Simply force lose debris out with a garden hose to prevent a clogged gutter that leads to a leaky roof and water damage to the exterior of the building. Along with gutters, it is also important to have the roof checked. Your property’s roof is a huge investment. Have a roofing professional inspect your roof. Even slight damage can lead to water exposure and deterioration leaving your plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems vulnerable.
It’s vital to have your property’s HVAC system inspected, serviced and cleaned annually at a minimum (if not every alternating season). During the cold winter season, your tenants likely had the heating system working hard, now is the time to extend the life of your furnace by attending to proper maintenance. This can postpone an expensive replacement. Now is an excellent time to remind your tenants to change their air filters if they have not yet. These are inexpensive maintenance tasks that can prevent major HVAC problems.
