Winter Maintenance Tips. 

It's that time of year again to make sure you are doing the most to protect your property from the winter weather. In the event that we are faced with extreme cold and winter weather, and tenants put in a maintenance request, we ask that tenants please be patient and trust that we are working diligently to ensure everyone’s maintenance request is addressed as quickly as possible. Tenants can help assist with busted pipes and frozen water lines by leaving their faucets dripping, opening cabinet doors to allow heat to get to their pipes, ensuring they keep their heat set at appropriate temperatures, and if they have oil/propane heat always to ensure they have above 30% in the tank. Here's a few tips from Sandra Crowder:

 1. Regular refrigerator maintenance involves vacuuming the condenser coils on the back or the bottom to clear out the dust and gunk about twice a year. These coils are critical to pushing heat out, so removing the dust and dirt will allow them to more efficiently keep the inside of the refrigerator cold.
 2. Regular HVAC maintenance involves replacing the filter regularly. Dirt and debris in your filter can obstruct air flow, increasing the workload of your system. You can reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system while allowing the free movement of air for improved indoor comfort.
 3. Regular HVAC maintenance also involves vacuuming the air registers. Your air registers and vents also become dirty over time. Dust, dirt, pollen, pet fur and dander and other contaminants gradually collect behind the floor and wall registers and within the ducts. Some of the contaminated air flows back into the home, becoming the air your family breathes.

Housekeeping Tips.

Our Executive Property Manager, Patrick Sasser has a few housekeeping tips for our tenants. See below: 

1. Please be sure you are changing your HVAC filters AT LEAST once every 3 months.
 2. If you are experiencing water drain issues, please attempt using Drano first before submitting work orders. Our maintenance request volume is extremely high and vendor availability is limited.
 3. If you have pets, please assure you are cleaning up after your animals and disposing of droppings properly. 

4. To submit a maintenance request, please visit our website or click here. Please, do not call our office to submit maintenance request(s).
