In today’s video we’re going to talk about eight specific maintenance tips we send to tenants on a regular basis to help prevent maintenance problems & disasters.
The last reminder has saved my clients THOUSANDS of dollars.
One of the first reminders we send tenants is to remove their hose in the fall & winter months. Especially in locations like Utah where there are cold winters, removing your hose can save so much money in the winter months.
This is potentially a BIG PROBLEM. The water in the hose freezes and expands and cracks. When it melts it will get inside the home.
Another routine maintenance tip we send to tenants is that they are responsible for the general upkeep of the yard.
Air filters are a responsibility of the tenant too. We send a reminder to the tenants to make sure to update the air filters.
Another routine reminder is that tenants use their bathroom fans. This keeps the bathroom ventilated and prevents mold, mildew and other problems.
We also remind tenants on how to deal with clogged pipes. These are typically expenses that the tenant would need to pay for if it was something they could have prevented.
There are different types of plungers you can use if you have clogged pipes, drains or toilets.
Updating the batteries on the key pad dead bolts is another maintenance reminder we send to tenants. In a future video we’ll show you how this can be done.
NEVER, EVER use Drano on clogged pipes. They damage the finish on your sink.
