Cleaning Guide & Tips
Tips and Advice for Keeping Your Apartment Functioning Properly
Filters: If you want to have the cleanest air and the quietest HVAC system, change your filters monthly. We change them approximately on a quarterly basis but this by no means you can’t change it more frequently. This will save you on your utility bills.
Garbage disposals: Run it on a regular basis to keep the drain tube cleared of any debris. Debris can cause odors to seep through the sink drain. This will also keep the dishwasher from backing up due to any blockage. Additionally, put a cup of ice into the disposal every couple of weeks to keep the blades sharp. This will also help to clear out any debris since it’ll be cut into smaller pieces.
Electrical: Avoid using high amp/wattage equipment on the same outlets. A small hair dryer coupled with a curling iron can trip the GFI and shut down the outlet. Please keep this in mind when using a standalone freezer. Be cognizant of where it’s plugged in and if there is another outlet that is frequently used for other high output appliances.
Please have trash & recyclables separated and well bundled (as not to blow around the neighborhood) and leave it in the garage and we will put it out. Please no tires, oils, paints, batteries and etc. as the City will not pick it up. Large furniture & appliances, you need to make proper arrangement with Solid Waste Department at 874-6291 BEFORE YOU LEAVE.
