When becoming a great landlord you are away of the needs of the property and maintenance issues that may arise or that have already arose. We want to give you all the knowledge to best tackle the fall season in regards to your property in Coeur d’Alene. Here are some things to be weary of:
Take care of any safety hazards. Any items that pose a accident such as bulky carpets or loose hand railings should be fixed.
Check electrical sockets in use to ensure they are not warm to the touch.
Inspect fire extinguishers to confirm they are properly charged.
Check any alarms throughout the home and install fresh batteries.
Review household safety and emergency plans, locate gas and water shut off valves.
Clean/replace filters and vents as needed and vacuum under all appliances.
Change furnace filters on a monthly basis.
Ensure all doors and windows shut tightly.
Clean all drains and traps to ensure proper drainage.
Tidy up outside by storing hoses and similar items.
Schedule to have your sprinkler system blown out by professionals, so that pipes don’t break
