As a property manager, you have many responsibilities; from changing smoke alarm batteries to painting and dealing with contractors, maintenance can be daunting.
Save yourself money and hassle by replacing or repairing equipment in a timely way, and focusing on preventative maintenance. Here are some helpful tips to help you keep track of your facility.
Change the batteries on your smoke detectors.
This problem could literally save your occupants’ lives. Because smoke alarms are always on, it’s easy to forget about them. That’s why it’s important to put in new batteries at least two times a year.
Test the HVAC system.
As long as you’re doing maintenance around your property, it’s also a great idea to test both the heating and the air-conditioning before your facility’s occupants need them.
Perform any needed pruning, trimming, or other yard work.
Remember to take care of your facility’s outdoor features by:
- Performing other outdoor maintenance as a preventative measure
Keeping up this maintenance of your facility’s landscape also helps with insect and pest control, protection of the property, proper plant growth, and occupant safety.
Check for water damage and leaks.
Fall is a perfect time to check your property for water damage and leaks. You’ll also need to look for soft spots on the roof, ceiling, and walls.
