How to maintain your condos

by | Feature, Property

Jan. 16, 19 | 7:23 am

You have a condo. What’s next? Keep it well-maintained. Here are key maintenance tips from www.dpmcare.com

  1. Keep track of inspections

Complete all inspections required in a timely manner. Developing an inspection calendar is a smart idea to eliminate oversight.

  1. Take a preventative approach

To avoid major problems and costly repairs, take a preventative maintenance approach to all your building’s major systems – from AC to carpet floors. Perform regular checks and cleanings to ensure you get the maximum life from your building’s biggest investments.

  1. Be ready to resolve problems

Having rules in place and effectively communicating them to condo owners can help prevent problems. Providing a clear process for resolving disputes is also important.

  1. Pay attention to vents

One of the most common problems in condo buildings is clogged or blocked vents—particularly dryer vents, which can be a major fire hazard.

  1. Preserve your carpeting

In addition to regular vacuuming, be sure to have your condo carpets deep cleaned on a monthly or quarterly basis. This will keep your carpets looking vibrant and help prevent permanent damage.

  1. Prioritize security

To prevent theft and vandalism, don’t be lax about security. Make sure all exterior areas like parking lots or garages are well lit and monitored.  Also consider investing in new technology that can provide better security.

  1. Clean pipes regularly

Plumbing is an area where preventative maintenance can make a big difference. Have a professional come out at least once a year to clean all major drain and sewer lines.

  1. Refresh your image

From time to time, paint the lobby and common areas to adding new flowers to the landscaping to re-striping lines in the parking lot, there are low-cost ways to renew the look of your condo building.

  1. Be emergency ready

Have a plan in place for different emergency situations—from fires to natural disasters to utility shutoffs. Know what needs to be done in these situations.
