A Guide to Property Maintenance in California

A Guide to Property Maintenance in California thumbnail

The California Civil Code dictates that landlords must provide lessees with habitable conditions. Replacing and repairing faulty equipment along with regular monitoring of the property are crucial for all homeowners. Finding skilled vendors and technicians to respond to an immediate emergency at the property is also a difficult task, unless there is a dedicated caretaker. To save time and avoid any liability caused by damages, we at Beach Front Property Management help landlords with all aspects of property maintenance.

Types of Property Maintenance Services

Regular upkeep of the property is essential. It includes cleaning the area, taking care of the garden, changing a lock if it is not working properly and much more.

2. Maintenance of Electrical Installations

All electrical installations at the property need to be checked regularly. It includes earthing, insulation and polarity. This kind of maintenance should be done periodically to keep everything functioning well.

3. Preventive Maintenance

This is done to avoid breakdown of any machinery and occurrence of faults at the property. This work includes prevention of flood, deterioration of building parts, accidental damage and more.

4. Protective Maintenance

Some items at the property require more than just cleaning. For example, objects made of steel require a coating to prevent them from rust. Pillars need a regular coating to keep them strong and well maintained. These aspects come under protective maintenance.

5. Emergency Maintenance

This kind of maintenance work is always carried out immediately. For example, some parts of the ceiling can break down and potentially injure the residents. This needs immediate attention and falls under emergency maintenance.
