Even when residents are away, maintaining a wonderful living space is beneficial for keeping costs low and residents happy. We’ve compiled a list of tips that will ensure your property remains efficient no matter the circumstance.
Too cool and too warm can often lead to too much money. Take the initiative to adjust the AC in vacant units and common areas to a temperature that is reflective of your climate. Doing so will keep costs significantly lower. You might even consider doing the same for out-of-town residents. Requesting permission to adjust their thermostat to a cheaper, more suitable setting would go a long way in making your residents feel cared for.
Check for running toilets
Is your toilet running.? Well then, you’d better go catch it! But seriously, catch those leaks before time and money get away from you. Look at vacant units as the perfect opportunity to make repairs with the least inconvenience. Get faulty toilet flappers and leaky faucets fixed ASAP to save you hundreds of dollars down the road.
Do not flush sanitation wipes
This is a huge no-no. Our Account Managers have received word that the flushing of sanitation wipes has caused huge plumbing issues. Residents may not be aware that these systems aren’t built to break down the quilted quality of a Clorox wipe. Disposing of them properly could save you potentially thousands of dollars in damages, so we encourage you to send out an email informing your residents of proper disposal methods.
