Summer offers the ideal weather for multifamily property maintenance tasks, and Targa Real Estate is here to help you get started. Here are a few things to tackle in the summer months.

HVAC System and Water Heater Maintenance

Preventative maintenance for water heaters and HVAC systems helps eliminate failures and enhances the system's efficiency, performance, and lifespan. The primary HVAC maintenance is changing air filters quarterly; thus, you can schedule one activity during the summer. For the water heater in your multifamily property, you should drain the tanks twice a year and remove sediments that can harm this appliance. Dirt, dust, and pet dander can easily clog HVAC systems, resulting in poor indoor air quality. Preventative maintenance solves this problem.

Testing CO2 and Smoke Alarms

During the summer, check carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, and smoke alarms. Because fire strikes without warning, the best approach is to stay ready for any calamity. Engage the services of experts to ensure your fire alarm systems are working 100%. Also, trim dead and backed plants in the compound that can enhance fire dangers. Similarly, all grills in the multifamily community should be well ventilated and shifted away from buildings.

Cleaning Patios and Decks

Typically, patios and decks get additional use during summer; thus, it's ideal to repaint or stain them. Any chairs, umbrellas, and tables in outdoor spaces in the multifamily community need cleaning, repairs, and enhancement to make them safer and more inviting. Clean patios and decks and install trash cans in anticipation of high traffic during summer.

Inspecting Roofs and Gutters

Inspecting roofs and gutters in your multifamily property is a vital part of preventative maintenance. Remove all debris on roofs and gutters to prevent roof damage. Similarly, inspect the roof to ensure there are no leaks or damage. A professional roofing company will do the job thoroughly to ensure your roofs and gutters are ready for the next season.
