As we all continue to navigate through COVID-19 and practice social distancing, simple maintenance requests are not being performed at this time for the safety of you, our resident, and our associates.
Due to this temporary protocol, below are some tips that may assist you should something in your apartment home need attention.
It is important to remember that your toilet is not a trash can. The two biggest reasons for clogged toilets are “flushable wipes and grease.” Unlike toilet paper that breaks down when it gets wet, the “flushable” wipes do not. These wet wipes will stay intact and create a back-up.
Under the disposal is a red
reset button that
may get it working
again. There are several items you
should not put
down the garbage
- Coﬀee grounds
- Egg shells
- Fruit stones
- Pasta and rice
- Potato peelings
When cooking, smoke may build up in unit then cause the smoke detector to continuously beep – all that needs to be done is to fan the smoke away from the smoke detector. DO NOT REMOVE THE SMOKE DETECTOR. If a smoke detector is beeping continuously, maintenance will provide a battery for resident to replace.
Overfilling the refrigerator or freezer can block air vents, restrict the flow of cold air, and overtax your refrigerator’s condenser, which could lead to a burn out. Please do not overload your refrigerator or freezer.
Most breaker boxes are located behind one of the bedroom doors. A tripped breaker will be set in the middle position. To reset a breaker, completely move the breaker switch Left or Right depending on location on house panel; until a click sound is heard. If click is not heard, breaker has not been properly re-set.
