A property manager’s main role is as a tenant concierge. Their job is multi-faceted but breaks down to the following:
Maintaining a safe and profitable asset
Safety is a concern of every good property manager. How do you keep your tenants safe? The first step is keeping your property maintained and clean. Dryer vents is a good example of this.
About five years ago, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) co-funded a study to measure how many fires in the United States begin with clothes dryers or washing machines. They looked at most major forms of housing: single family, multifamily, duplexes, condominiums, townhouses, apartments, and row housing, and what they found, in a nutshell, was the following:
- The leading items first ignited in clothes dryer fires were dust, fiber, or lint (27%) and clothing (26%). In washing machine fires, the leading items first ignited were electrical wire or cable insulation (26%) and appliance housing or casing (24%).
- Most of these home fires involved clothes dryers (92%).
- The leading cause (31%) of home clothes dryer and washer fires was failure to clean.Refresh can make sure those dryer vents are clean so you can keep your properties safe and profitable. Refresh also offers janitorial services including a porter service to help with general cleanliness and safety. No one wants to deal with slip and fall law suits when you are trying to keep your properties profitable.
