Spring Cleaning Your Copperas Rental Homes

Bartlett Property Owner Doing Some Spring CleaningSpring is that part of the year where we can see obvious signs of renewal everywhere. As the days extend longer, winter slowly loosens its icy grip, smelted by warm spring rains and a new sense of zest. Spring leads to joyful flowers, outdoor works, and for rental property owners, a really long list of to-do items. Spring is an acceptable time to see to it your Copperas rental homes are in fine form and available for another fresh year. By addressing a few key areas of your property each spring, you can keep your valuable investment fit and profitable for years to come.

A meticulous assessment of your rental homes is a suitable starting point to get rolling in finalizing your spring to-do list. Concrete areas including the foundation, driveway, patio, and walkways should be inspected, and any cracks or gaps repaired. Exterior doors and windows need to be checked for cracks and gaps and sealed with caulk or weather stripping if needed. Exterior door hardware should also be evaluated, repairing or replacing any squeaky handles or loose locks. Spring is an excellent time to unclutter and clean windows and door screens and to refresh exterior paint. It’s also a very good course of action to go over the roof for missing or damaged shingles and to recondition or completely change all outdoor light fixtures.

When working on checking off your list of spring maintenance stuff, don’t skip on the yard. Spring is the right time to test sprinkler systems and make any necessary repairs. Perimeter fences and gates should be checked and repaired if needed. Spring is also a very good time to consider the garbage cans and replace one and all with disjointed lids or holes. For a final point, spring cleaning should integrate the landscaping, and it is an excellent time of the year to plant new trees and bushes. Remove dead bushes or tree branches and rake up any leftover leaves. Lawns should be fertilized, and flower beds prepared for summer blooms.

Supervising everything of the repair and maintenance details may form a real need for a dumpster or other container. Even though a dumpster would seem to be a sufficient way to deal with the scraps and trash from your spring maintenance and repair checklist, it’s necessary to ensure it’s ok with local authorities first before you go choosing to rent one. Local regulations may not allow dumpsters to be placed in front of a rental house, or may only allow them for a specific length of time.

Spring cleaning lists as these are a crucial feature of rental property maintenance. By carefully attending to common, regular repair and maintenance items, you can get the best out of your rental rates, prevent unprofitable and expensive repairs, and continue to keep your tenants elated over your property.
