Real Property Management of Sarasota & ManateeCeiling Fan Dangers - Sarasota Real Property Management Company

We just took over the management of a 2 bedroom/2 bath single-family rental house in Venice, FL, that has four ceiling-fans. These are steel-blade fans that are installed 6'3" above the floor. At 6' even, I was a little queasy walking under those fans. So, what do you think I did?

I've ordered the fans removed and replaced with light fixtures. Why? Because:

  1. A steel blade turning at 1,000 rpm's just a few inches above a tenant's head is the stuff of property manager nightmares.
  2. There is no expectation in our market that a rental house will come with ceiling fans.
  3. Light fixtures add functionality to the rooms (otherwise you need lamps).
  4. One less thing to break.
In one fell-swoop we've eliminated liability and possible injury for all parties: owner, tenant, and property manager. It's a true 'Win-Win" for all!
