Six Keys to Cooperation When Painting Residents' Units
Your maintenance plan includes painting resident units on a regular schedule, but your residents might not always cooperate. For example, they may drag their feet when asked to prepare the unit for painting or grumble about giving the painters access to the unit.
Housing maintenance professionals advise painting units every three to five years to keep painted surfaces in good condition. Failure to properly maintain painted surfaces could cause you to be hit with a HUD inspection violation. Peeling, cracked, or deteriorated paint raises a red flag with inspectors.
