Spring Property Maintenance Essentials

Spring Cleaning

Floor Cleaning & Carpet Care

Cleaning and rejuvenating solid surface floors after a season of winter's harsh winds, snow, and rain will improve the image and safety of your common areas. Shampooing carpets can improve indoor air quality and extend the life of carpeting.

Window Cleaning

Wash all windows, and remove and wash all window screens after the buildup of winter's sleet, snow, and dirt to show tenants and visitors that you take pride in your building's appearance.

Pressure Washing

Pressure wash exterior surfaces, walls, sidewalks, parking lots, and hardscaping to remove weather stains, mineral deposits, and ice melt stains. This will also make a positive impression on your residents.

  • Clearing debris from gutters

Why Switch to LED?

  • 90% of incandescent light energy is wasted as heat.
  • LED bulbs use up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescents, produce very little heat, and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
  • According to the Department of Energy, LEDs are almost 75% more efficient than traditional or halogen bulbs - leading to significant electricity savings.
  • They do not contain harmful gases, liquids, or solids that could be hazardous to your tenants or the environment

HVAC Maintenance

HVAC Maintenance

Spring heating, ventilation, and air conditioning maintenance is an essential part of preserving the life of your heating and cooling system. Maintenance upkeep on these systems will also help you avoid expensive repairs due to neglect, while keeping your tenants comfortable.
  • Make sure air conditioning units are in good working order. Inspect your air conditioning units and replace or clean any filters, and remove buildup on fans or forced airways.
  • Check basement humidity. If applicable, inspect basement areas for humidity levels. Check and clean dehumidifiers and humidifiers, and set dampers as needed.
  • Consider switching to pleated air filters - the benefits will save your property time, money, and energy. 

Appliance Filters

Dirty filters can cause refrigerators and other appliances to use more energy, according to EnergyStar.gov. For example, range hood filters should be changed twice a year in homes where cooking happens often. Use spring as a reminder to check all appliance filters.

Water Heaters Maintenance

The water in your residents' water heaters needs to be flushed from time to time to remove sediment that can build up and reduce each unit's efficiency.
