Tip #40: Playing It Safe
Trouble is, not all tenants understand how to use them properly.
If you have gas appliances in your units, or think you might in the future, here are some tips to pass along to your tenants:
After each tenant moves out, be sure to check all gas appliances for signs of tampering, for instance disabled ventilation fans, the dryer moved away from wall in search of lost socks. Your gas appliances need to be inspected periodically to check for damage and wear. Some gas suppliers suggest once per year. The appliance manufacturer may offer guidance as well.
It’s always best to play it safe!
