5 Steps to Maintain Your Vacation Home

5 Steps to Maintain Your Vacation Home

As we head into the latter part of 2018, now’s the perfect time to think about those areas of your vacation home that may need a little tidying for fall. Have a vacation home in Palm Beach? We’re here to help! Keep reading for the five steps to maintain your vacation home this fall.

1. Consider investing in a property manager.

If you live more than a quick drive or flight away from your Palm Beach vacation home, consider investing in a property manager to care for your home while you’re away. Property managers are great resources for helping your seasonal guests check in and out of your vacation home, addressing any minor repairs and ensuring that your property is cared for and monitored year-round.

2. Keep a maintenance emergencies contact list.

Broken pipes, leaky roofs and clogged drains seem to happen at the most inopportune times. To make these mishaps a little less stressful, complete and keep a maintenance emergency contact list of contractors that you can call on when you need help in your Palm Beach vacation home.

3. Replace key vacation household items twice-yearly.

Tired of returning to your Palm Beach vacation home, only to be greeted by a burned-out lightbulb? Your seasonal guests likely are, too! To prevent this, make a point to replace your key household items like lightbulbs, air filters, alarm batteries and more when you visit your vacation home.

4. Establish concierge services for your seasonal guests.

Like a maintenance emergencies list, make a point to keep a fun list of nearby restaurants, concert venues and shopping areas for your seasonal vacation home guests to reference. In a community like Palm Beach County, the sky’s the limit when it comes to exciting seasonal activities to explore and participate in!

5. Call on a maid service for seasonal vacation home cleanings.

When it’s time to welcome your family or new seasonal guests into your Palm Beach vacation home, remember to hire a professional housekeeping service to come in and tidy up your home for the season. Professional maids will do a great job at refreshing your linens, cleaning all surfaces, ensuring that your floors are spotless and more.
