October 8, 2019
It's officially autumn, which means apple cider, pumpkin patches and extra maintenance on apartments. Here's what you should do to prepare your properties for the season.
It’s officially autumn, and we’re truly falling for this weather. (Putting that line in the “keeper” folder.)
As nice as it is, we’re less thrilled about the extra maintenance that comes with leafy clutter and pre-winter preparations. But no matter how we feel about it, there’s work to be done!
Here are five important fall maintenance jobs for property managers.
1. Rake those leaves at least once per week
Ah, those golden piles of leaves: fun for kids, not for you. What a mess.
When there’s a lot of raking to be done, you have a few options:
- Hire a professional landscaper
- Put your renters in charge of cleaning around their units (put this in the lease)
- Do it yourself
If you have the time, only a few properties and want to save money, by all means do it yourself. However, this could easily be a weekly job. Plan your workload wisely.
