Is Your Rental Property Summer Ready?

Summer was slow to arrive this year, so we’re hoping that it decides to stick around a little while longer! Keep your rental property summer ready with these helpful hints!

Keep the air conditioning unit and fans clean and dust free

Even at the height of summer it’s a good idea to give your aircon filters and fans a bit of a dust, especially if your property hasn’t been occupied since the cooler months. Dust can gather on these kinds of units, so it’s best to give them a good clean before turning the unit on.

Prepare windows and doors for A/C use

Cold air escaping during summer can make it harder to keep your property cool and can also increase utility costs. Give windows and doors a once-over to identify any gaps and fix them up!

Test smoke detectors

Smoke detectors should be checked regularly to ensure they are in good working order to protect your home from fire risks.

Give your garden some TLC

People love spending time outside during the warmer months, so you want to make your property’s outdoor area as appealing as possible. Hold a working bee to spruce up the garden, mow the lawns, trim the hedges and plant some new plants to keep everything looking fresh and green.

Let the light in

Natural light does wonders for any home, so give the windows a good clean, inside and out, to open the room up and brighten your space.
