Property maintenance is known as the general upkeep of your building, including cleaning, repairs, and landscaping. It plays a significant role in not only keeping your current tenants happy but also in attracting new tenants to rent from your property. As a landlord, the major challenge is how to find new tenants for your property? To help answer this question, we’ve compiled a list of different maintenance methods to get your vacancies filled and start increasing profits.

Lawncare and Landscaping

The first thing potential tenants will see is the exterior of your property before stepping inside the building, so it is vital to make a lasting impression. In the springtime, tend to trees, shrubs, and flowers. In the fall time, make sure to rake fallen leaves and clean as needed.

Pest Control and Extermination

Having monthly pest control and extermination services is necessary to avoid infestations, and in doing so, you’ll save on costs in the long run. Pests such as termites can cause significant property damage, so it is best to rid your property of pests. Schedule treatment consistently before the situation becomes uncontrollable.

Check for Leaks and Other Water Damage

Checking for leaks and water damage is especially important after heavy storms, floods, or snowmelt. Additionally, check for burst pipes and overflowing toilets. Never ignore signs of water damage as failure to resolve it can wreak havoc to the property and encourage unhealthy mold growth.

Replace Grout and Caulking As Needed

Grout between tiles can eventually crack, and the caulk around the tub can loosen, which will mean it’s time to replace them. By doing so as soon as possible, you can prevent any water damage from occurring.

Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Regularly

Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors monthly to ensure they are in working order. These two devices are vital to your tenants’ health and safety. If they are not working in the case of a fire or carbon monoxide leak, you could face legal action.

Replace Air Filters Frequently

Air filters help keep your indoor air clean and free of contaminants and particulates such as dust, pollen, and fibers. Check air filters at least once a month to see if they are dirty or clogged and need replacing. 

Clean the Gutters

Inspect gutters routinely as they can become easily clogged with leaves and other debris. This leads to leaks caused by trapped water making its way into the property through the roof, siding, and windows.
