With the start of summer just days away now is the perfect time for every landlord in the Central Valley, and across the United States, to get their rental properties ready for the summer months. If it’s been some time since you maintained your rental property, this article will provide you with tips that you should consider following that will help you to get your rental property ready for summer.
Inspect Your HVAC System
Since your tenants will be using their HVAC systems during the summer months you should get HVAC and air conditioning units inspected now to ensure that they are all running smoothly during summer months once warmer weather arrives.
Check Insulation and Weather Stripping In Rental Property
Last of all, but most important, you should check the weather and insulation in your Rental Property because proper insulation and weather stripping will help your tenants to lower their energy costs and ensure that their homes stay cool during the summer months.
Close Up Crawl Spaces Under Homes
If the Real Estate that you own has a crawl space underneath it you should close up that space or any access point to your basement or underneath your home immediately because snakes and critters will seek shelter in cool spaces during the warmer months.
Clean Up Brush And Dead Vegetation Surrounding Your Property
Take the time to clean up brush and dead vegetation surrounding your property since this will also make your yard space less attractive to critters and also create a firebreak between your home and open spaces if a fire breaks out during the summer.
Remove Wood Or Trash From Your Property
There’s no denying that with the start of summer certain animals or critters like snakes will be seeking shelter in cool places that’s why you should make sure that trash, wood or other debris is removed from the property since this will protect your tenants from altercations with critters.
