Spring is a wonderful time of year, but it can also bring lots of allergy woes to certain people. If your tenants suffer from allergies, you may wonder what you can do to improve the air quality in your rental property. Consider the following tips to keep your tenants happy, healthy, and comfortable this spring.
Virtually every heating and air conditioning system uses a filtration system, and the filters require replacement on a consistent basis. Check the filters in your air filtration system and make sure to replace them on a regular basis. Most air filter manufacturers release various quality levels of filters, and the most effective air filters tend to be the most expensive. However, this is a relatively small investment that can offer tremendous benefits.
Perhaps you changed all your filters and notice no change in air quality, or maybe the air quality worsened. Hire a professional heating and air conditioning service company to inspect the duct system in your rental property. Debris, dust, and other particles can accumulate in odd places that only a professional can reach, and investing in a yearly duct cleaning helps keep your rental property’s air filtration system functional and reliable year round.
If you have carpeted areas, make sure cleaning staff are using HEPA filtered bags on vacuum cleaners to extract as many pollutants, allergens, and other potentially harmful particles from the carpeted surfaces in your rental property. Most of the pollen and other particles in the air during the springtime will enter your rental unit on a tenant’s shoes and clothing. Having a solid air filtration system for the common areas of an apartment building can help all tenants breathe easier.
Ultimately, every property owner will have unique challenges when it comes to preserving the air quality of a rental unit. Taking the time to address air quality issues in the spring helps ensure your tenants can enjoy the warmer months with better indoor air quality.
