Winter Maintenance Checklist

By Katie Poole-Hussa, Property Manager, Acorn Property Management

In winter, your tenants can enjoy energy-efficient warmth and the fruits of your maintenance labors while you take a few precautionary measures on the outside.

Outdoor Tasks:

  • Walk around the property’s exterior and make sure the foundation vents are closed or covered.
  • Protect the central air conditioning unit with a cover. Remove and store window air conditioners.
  • Winterize sprinkler systems.
  • Rake last of leaves and remove storm debris as needed.
  • Check gutters and downspouts and clean them out if needed.
  • Send freezing weather reminders to tenants.
  • Insulate or wrap all exposed plumbing pipes.
