Avoiding Maintenance Charges

Normal wear and tear to the unit are not charged to your account. However, resident damage is charged to your account. So, to prevent damage, here are a few suggestions:
  • Never dump cooking grease down drain lines or toilets. Once the grease sets up, it can plug your drains.
  • Never flush feminine hygiene products down the toilet.
  • If you do plug a drain, have a plunger handy.
  • Keep your unit keys in your possession at all times. Leave a spare key with a trusted relative, friend or neighbor.
  • Keep your unit clean. Cleanliness keeps away unwanted pests.
  • Know where the water shut off valves are. If you happen to break a pipe or faucet, the chrome handled valves under the sinks and toilet can shut down water to the problem by turning the valve handle clock-wise as far as it goes. Remember, “righty-tighty and lefty-loosey.”
