SPRING

LANDSCAPING

If you are responsible for the landscape maintenance at your property:

  • You will need to turn your irrigation water on when the weather requires it, as it was shut off during winterization.
  • Prune all shrubs.  They should not touch the sides of the home and should not cover windows.

If you have any questions regarding your responsibility for landscape maintenance please contact our office.

If landscaping maintenance is included with your property:  

Landscape maintenance takes place April through October. Please note that the landscape maintenance at your home is scheduled to take place bi-weekly on the same day of the week beginning in April then change to weekly beginning in May.    

Please be sure to have all outdoor items removed from lawn areas and flower beds including but not limited to: children’s toys, hoses, outdoor furniture and trash.

Pet waste must be removed from the property. Landscapers will not mow grass with pet waste in it or clean up the waste. If the landscaper is required to reschedule your landscape maintenance, you will be charged for the maintenance visit.

SUMMER

Air Conditioners

Please do not turn thermostats lower than 70 degrees during the summer when outside temperature are 90° or above.

  • The indoor coil below the furnace condenses water while its running, much like the water that drips from your car when you run the ac. 
  • That indoor coil gets very cold when its running, and if you turn the thermostat below 70 degrees, the air conditioner runs longer than designed, and that water that condenses turns to ice.
  • When the water turns to ice, it completely blocks the coil, and you get no airflow or cooling. This not only causes a loss of cooling, it also damages the air conditioner.

FALL

Property winterizations take place in the fall in preparation for the winter months. One of the most common items that are found during winterization inspections is CO detectors and smoke detectors are removed from their locations or batteries are missing. 

Please remember that it is the Resident’s responsibility to maintain the detectors at all times. If at any time you have a detector that stops working please notify our office immediately.

WINTER

DO NOT turn off your heat! Maintain a minimum temperature of 58-60° at all times, especially at night and during any absence from your home.

It is your responsibility to do everything possible to prevent frozen pipes. 

Frozen pipes can break and leave you without water for hours or even days!

  • Disconnect all hoses from the hose bibs outside. Cover outdoor faucets with Styrofoam covers.
  • Close and put Styrofoam foundation vent blocks in all of the vents. This keeps your crawl space more insulated and will help prevent frozen pipes and also help to save money on heating costs.

SEVERE WEATHER

In the event of severe weather there are some things you should do in addition to maintaining minimum temperature of 60° at all times.

  • Leave cabinet doors open under sinks to allow heat to circulate around plumbing pipes.
  • Leave faucets dripping slowly so that water is moving to help prevent freezing.
  • Keep garage doors closed during cold weather. Especially if you have a washer and dryer, or water heater in your garage.

SNOW & WALKWAYS

In most cases it is your responsibility to clear snow from walkways and city sidewalks. 

Snow should be removed as often as possible, melting snow will turn to ice. Use an ice-melt product as needed to ensure safety. DO NOT use Rock Salt on sidewalks.

SMOKE/CARBON DETECTORS

It is the tenant’s responsibility to change batteries in detectors when they are chirping.  Removing or tampering with the alarms or detectors is prohibited.  

Removing or tampering with the smoke alarms or detectors may result in a fine of up to $250 (ORS479). Please contact our office with any questions.
 
SMOKE ALARMS & CO DETECTORS
