As the temperatures rise and the sun shines brighter, it could be time to give your rental property some extra TLC 🪴
Summer is the perfect season to ensure your home remains in top shape. We've compiled a comprehensive summer maintenance checklist to help you stay on top of your game. So grab your sunscreen, roll up your sleeves, and let's dive into a season of property perfection!
- Garden Upkeep: The summer months are a great time for flourishing gardens, so let's start there! Landlords and tenants alike can benefit from maintaining a beautiful outdoor space. Prune overgrown plants, mow the lawn regularly, and water plants to keep them thriving. Remove weeds, and clear any waste and debris. A well-maintained garden enhances the property's curb appeal, will keep your landlord happy and can help to create a comforting place to live.
- Pest Control: Summer invites not only sunshine but also some unwelcome pests. Stay ahead of the game by implementing preventive measures to keep them at bay. Regularly inspect your property for signs of pests, such as ants, mosquitoes, or wasps. Seal any cracks or openings to prevent their entry, prevent leaving food out on worktops as it invites flies inside, and consider using natural remedies and deterrents. Creating a pest-free environment ensures a comfortable and stress-free summer for tenants.
- Ventilation: Good ventilation is crucial for rental properties during the summer. It helps maintain a comfortable temperature, prevents the buildup of heat and humidity, improves indoor air quality, and reduces the risk of mould and mildew. Consider keeping windows open whilst at home to ensure a healthy and pleasant living environment.
- Safety Precautions: For tenants, staying safe with outdoor activities is vital. Consider fire hazards when cooking, especially with BBQ season in full swing, and always be sure to follow the safety guidelines. A safe environment ensures that everyone can enjoy the summer season with peace of mind.
- Communication: Tenants should promptly report any maintenance issues or concerns to us. By working together, we can ensure that the rental property remains in excellent condition throughout the summer months.
