Adequate property maintenance is absolutely essential for property management companies year round, but as seasons change, so do the needs of your tenants. To accommodate, among the long list of other responsibilities you need to attend to, there is a laundry list of new priorities cycling through as the year progresses. We’ve compiled a list of summer maintenance projects you should prepare for…
If your apartment complex has a pool for resident use, make sure it is cleaned before opening and continues to be cleaned frequently. Ensure that safety signs are visible and replaced if damaged or worn. Update or inspect locks and gates to protect children from wandering into the pool area.
Trim bushes and trees, remove dead plants, and make additional landscape fixes to eliminate fire hazards. Ensure that grills are an adequate distance from buildings. Provide proper and accessible fire extinguishers on-site.
Enlish a professional or team of professionals to check all HVAC units in each apartment, clean coils, adjust dampers, and look for any other potential problems.
Update or prepare your land’s sprinkler system to save on water usage. Program all sprinklers to optimal summer settings according to your area’s climate.
More and more renters will venture outdoors recreationally, so ensure that all outdoor fixtures and furniture are clean and working properly.
Send reminders to your renters about quiet hour rules, guest parking rules, amenity closing hours, and all other new or re-opening amenities or policies.
