Now the weather is turning, it is time for your Kansas City property spring cleanup. The following are inexpensive maintenance tasks that can prevent costly repairs down the road.
Water flowing over clogged gutters can lead to a variety of problems for your foundation. Poor drainage fails to divert water away from your house and can lead to cracks over time. Taking the time and expense to ensure your gutters are clear and working properly can save thousands in long term foundation repairs. This should be a top priority when considering your Kansas City property spring cleanup.
BASIC AIR CONDITIONER MAINTENANCE
By spring an air conditioner has more than likely been dormant for several months. Clearing plant growth, removing grass clippings, and other debris will allow for proper ventilation. Some clippers and a garden hose should do the job. In some cases, even calling out an HVAC specialist to ensure your lines are insulated properly, verify proper pressure, and other basic maintenance is money well spent to avoid costly breakdowns in the future. And while you are at it, this is a great time to check on the HVAC air filter.
DEBRIS AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE HOUSE
Debris such as leaves, weeds, branches, and twigs should be removed from the edges of your house reducing the hiding places for rodents and other animals to live. This will deter those animals from then trying to make their way into your property potentially damaging the foundation, electrical, and more.
DOUBLE CHECK EGRESS
Walk the perimeter of your property to look for any entry points for rodents and insects into your house. A can of spray foam can probably handle any minor holes in need of plugging. Not to mention it will prevent your tenants from experiencing unwanted infestations.
These simple tips will extend the life of your house and its systems while improving the cash flow on your properties. But it all starts with your Kansas City property spring cleanup. Contact Premiere Property, LLC to inquire about how we can help you.
