4 Tips for Getting Your Portland Oregon Rental Property Ready for Fall

With fall right around the corner now is the best time for you to get your Portland Oregon Rental Property ready for fall and the winter months because many sources, including Farmer's Almanac are predicting we will have a colder winter than normal this year.

In today's post we will offer you tips for getting your Portland Oregon Rental Property ready for fall.

Re-Caulk Your Entire Property

Caulking your entire Portland Oregon Rental Property should be done at least two times per year because re-caulking around your doors and windows will insure that your rental stays dry during the wetter months in Portland.

Besides re-caulking around doors and windows you should also re-caulk around your kitchen sink, bathtub and bathroom sink as well.

Replace the Batteries on All Detectors

Another important thing you can do to get your Portland Oregon Rental ready for fall is to replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors because this will also help with fire prevention and keep your tenants safer.

Inspect the Roof

Hire a roofing professional to inspect the roof of your Portland Oregon Rental Property including in the attic as well because you want to eliminate the possibility of leakage once we start having more rain and snow.

Eliminate Pests

Besides having the outside of your home sprayed for pests regularly you should also have the crawl space underneath your house or your basement checked for critters like skunks or possums who might try to invade your home during the fall and winter months

When checking for pests it's best to remember to not attempt to remove pests from your home yourself so you can avoid accidents or injuries.
