Spring is the perfect time to do some maintenance at your Italian property
Whether you have decided to put your house for sale, rent it out for the season or simply enjoy it yourself, it is important to do some regular maintenance and we at Italy Property Service are happy to give some advice on where to start and what to do.
Essentials for your spring property maintenance
The following jobs are best done during warm months and include:
- Air Conditioner
Clean your air conditioner. You can do it by yourself or contact your air conditioning contractor or property manager.
- Hot water heater
Clean the circulating pump and motor. If needed, you can contact your trusted “caldaista” or again, your property management company in Italy.
Pull the leaves, run a hose on the roof and check if there are any leaks.
Proper roof cleaning is important to prevent fungus spreading across of it, stains from algae spores, moss etc. Choose a cool day, then mix a cleaning solution to spray onto your roof. Otherwise, you can contact your property management company in Italy.
- Windows and doors
Check if there are any holes, clean inside and outside.
Bathroom maintenance is essential to avoid problems related to plumbing, leaks, mould, and mildew.
- Deck, veranda, porch
If your property comes with a deck, veranda or porch, check if they need to be weather treated and clean them carefully with proper products.
Whether you do it yourself or you call your Italian property manager, make sure you trim all overgrown plants and remove weeds.
- ItaSprinkler system
Check if your sprinkler system is operating efficiently by running it entirely, one zone at a time.
- Floors, concrete and walls
Check your floors, concrete and walls for any cracking or deterioration. Call your property management company in case you need help or advice.
