Summertime may seem like the most carefree time of the year. With warm temperatures, it can be easy to spend more time relaxing than you do during the other seasons. However, the summer season can mean serious issues for apartment building maintenance. Make sure to keep these considerations in mind to ensure that the next heat wave does not have serious effects on your building.
- Air conditioning – most of your tenants will be running their air conditioning during the summer, even if it is just for a couple of hours. Make sure that everyone’s a/c unit is operating properly and as efficiently as possible to prevent hot and annoyed tenants. You should also ensure that you have the right tools and equipment on hand to handle any issues that do come up, so they can be resolved as fast as possible.
- Curb appeal – summer is a great time to work on the curb appeal of the whole building. Even though the outside temperatures are hot, you do not have to worry about any weather issues shutting down the work that you are doing. Consider pressure washing the building and walkways, and even repainting during the summer to get the building looking its best. Keep in mind that you may not be able to do a lot of work when the temperatures start to drop again.
- Pools – having a beautiful pool can be a major draw to your apartment building. If you already have a pool, see if there are any projects that you can do to make it more appealing. Just keep in mind that you will not want to do any projects that will shut down the pool since your tenants will want to splash around to cool down.
