Fall 2015 is right around the corner and with cooler temperatures expected including more snow this winter it makes sense for you to get your Portland Oregon Rental Property ready for fall and winter right now.
Regardless if you’ve owned rental property for years, or are just getting started, you can take care of your rental property yourself by following these simple tips.
Tip #1 – Have Your Property Re-Caulked
Caulking your entire Portland Oregon Rental Property should be done at least two times per year because re-caulking around your doors and windows will insure that your rental stays dry during the wetter months in Portland.
Besides re-caulking around doors and windows you should also re-caulk around your kitchen sink, bathtub and bathroom sink as well.
Tip #2 –Replace All Batteries in Detectors inside Your Home
Another important thing you can do to get your Portland Oregon Rental ready for fall is to replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors because this will also help with fire prevention and keep your tenants safer.
Tip #3 – Inspect the Roof
Hire a roofing professional to inspect the roof of your Portland Oregon Rental Property including in the attic as well because you want to eliminate the possibility of leakage once we start having more rain and snow.
Tip #4 – Focus on Pest Control
Besides having the outside of your home sprayed for pests regularly you should also have the crawl space underneath your house or your basement checked for critters like skunks or possums who might try to invade your home during the fall and winter months
When checking for pests it’s best to remember to not attempt to remove pests from your home yourself so you can avoid accidents or injuries.
