September 2016, Dallas, TX: Fall is the perfect time to prep your rental properties for the coming colder weather. Dallas property management companies can keep their properties better maintained and comfortable for tenants during every season with a few maintenance tips from the leader in property management. Dallas tenants appreciate their homes being ready for the winter with equipment checks and regular maintenance.
“Some managers forget to think ahead to the next season early enough, so tenants are comfortable when weather changes start to turn cooler,” says Stefanie Mendoza, operations director at Specialized. “Getting the furnace ready before it turns cool means your tenants don’t have to wait to be comfortable in their homes when the weather surprises us with change.”
While getting ready for temperature changes, Dallas property management companies can also conduct a regular maintenance inspection. Here are some ideas of what to look for:
- Loose or buckling carpet
- Unstable stair railings
- Hot electrical outlets
- Fully charged fire extinguishers
- Smoke detector with working batteries
- Working shut off valves for gas and water
Seasonal Maintenance Items
- Change furnace and A/C filters
- Clean out vents and air intake ducts
- Deep clean floors
- Fall landscape clean-up
Fall maintenance allows Dallas property management companies to keep their units well maintained, retain curbside appeal, and communicate property needs with tenants. “Property inspections and communication with tenants is always a good idea for being proactive with your property management responsibilities,” advises Mendoza. Schedule your fall maintenance inspection today and have your rental home prepared for the coming change in seasons.
