When you own a property or are the manager of a property, it’s important to schedule regular preventative maintenance inspections. Doing this every six months or so can help you to save money on the problems you find. Often, a small problem can be found and fixed before it becomes a large one. These walkthroughs will give you a good idea about the condition of your home and appliances as well as how they are being used.
Preventative maintenance inspections are easy for you to do, and they can be highly revealing. It’s during this time that you can find out whether someone is living there who shouldn’t be. You can also spot any pets who are there that shouldn’t be. If the tenants have made a mess or damaged things, you can find out about it and have a conversation with your tenants.
Water is one of the most damaging forces to a home, and you need to look for water damage during your inspections. Water damage can be highly expensive to fix. If a leak is caught early, it won’t have caused much damage yet. Check each room and make sure that it’s in good shape and note any damage.
