Summer Preventive Maintenance

Real Property Management Peace Keeps Things Cool By Performing Summer Preventative Maintenance

We all love summer. The picnics, BBQs, pool time, family reunions, and home improvement projects make the season fun. Along with the home improvement projects on your own home, rental property owners in Las Vegas need to remember to perform preventative maintenance on their rental properties as well.

Las Vegas Professional Rental Management Teams Suggest ‘Playing it Cool’

Just as you want to eliminate stress and improve your tenant experiences in the summer and keep it the place to go to entertain and cool off from the hot summer sun. Here’s a few tips for making sure they are comfortable this summer:

  • Fans, windows, and doors. Ensure all screws on ceiling fans are tight to reduce the risk of imbalanced blades. Check all windows and doors for proper seals to prevent air leaks.
  • Central Air. Have these units professionally serviced to ensure their best performance. Change filters inside to improve air flow quality. We offer this service as part of our Tenant benefits package.
  • Swimming pool maintenance. If your rental property has a swimming pool, have it inspected for leaks and proper chemical balances.

Las Vegas Real Estate Management Suggests Moving the Inspection Inside

A few things to look for inside as a rental property manager in Las Vegas:

  • Filters, vents, and hoses-oh my! These parts may seem small, but if not functioning properly they can cause damage to the home. Vacuum out your dryer vents, change the HVAC filters, and check the water hoses on the washing machine and fridge to prevent leakage.
    • We offer monthly air filter replacement, delivered, as part of our Tenant Benefits Package.
  • Prevent house fires. Verify all electrical outlets are working and that they do not have exposed or frayed wiring.
  • Test all alarm systems throughout the home and add fresh batteries if needed.

Sizzling Summer Maintenance Outside

Once you are sure your tenants will be safe and cool inside, it’s time to check up on the property exterior. Follow these recommendations:

  • View for water damage during monsoon season at your property.  Verify all roof’s are clean and work well for drainage. Ensure any gutters or downspouts drain away from the foundation of your home.
  • Wash, clean, inspect. Go around the home and wash the windows, clean the stucco, and inspect wood for damage or rot. Have the roof inspected by a professional to verify no leaks or damage has occurred during the colder months.
  • Maintain the lawn. Mow, weed whack, plant, and check irrigation systems to keep the curb appeal of the home intact.

By following these summer preventative maintenance tips, you ensure the longevity of your investment. If you are not up for summer maintenance or have a full schedule of your own, contact us, the professional Las Vegas rental management company to take the hassle out of summer maintenance!
