When To Call Maintenance In Your Noblesville Apartment 10/08/2020 If you rent a studio apartment, one-bedroom unit, or a larger apartment, it's only a matter of time before you require a repair. But, how do you know when to call maintenance in your Noblesville apartment? Of Course, major issues, like heating and electrical trouble, need to be reported, but what about the smaller stuff? Do you also report burned-out lighting or frayed carpeting? Is it smart to try and repair issues yourself? Call Maintenance For Your Noblesville Apartment When Faced With These Problems When you discover a major problem – especially one that's structural -- it's commonly covered per your rental agreement. The following are ordinary complications you may find: Water damage and leaks: If you see water entering from the apartment above or you experience a toilet overflow or faulty appliance that may cause water damage in your apartment, notify maintenance immediately. HVAC problems: If your air conditioning stops blowing, or your furnace fails, it’s time to make the call. Even when it’s nice out, your HVAC should be operational. Faulty plumbing: If you have a clogged toilet, attempt to clear it with your plunger. If that doesn't work, then give maintenance a call. You should also request service for dripping sinks or shower fixtures. Bugs: In many cases, pests get in by attaching to your your clothing or your pet. But if you encounter any infiltrating insects and pests -- like cockroaches, mice, or ants – it's the perfect time for your maintenance staff to send out a pest control expert. Appliance malfunctions: If your freezer won't cool or your stovetop fails to heat up, you need to make the call. All appliances that came with your apartment should be covered, but items you own – a toaster, microwave, washer/dryer – is your responsibility. Faulty doors or windows: All exterior doors should close and lock properly. If water infiltration or damage from misuse prevents them from easily functioning, they need to be replaced for safety reasons. Windows should have the same expectations. Drywall, flooring, and other issues: If there is drywall damage or a flooring concern, contact the maintenance team. Fraying or torn carpet might require replacement, particularly if a tack is exposed. What Can You Repair? Not every problem necessitates a call for help. Despite the fact that some property managers are willing to help with lightbulbs, smoke detector batteries, and filters, it may not always be convenient to arrange for a maintenance request for minor jobs. Here are some everyday undertakings that you could do yourself: Lighting: When light bulbs are burned out, they could conveniently be switched out whenever you are able. But keep in mind, if your lighting installation seems to churn through new lightbulbs, you might ask maintenance to find out if you have an electrical issue. Make sure to ask if maintenance supplies light bulbs when they need changing as special bulbs are sometimes used. Clogged pipes and toilets: If the toilet stops flushing properly, first try a plunger. You might also require some drain cleaning product to get the hair from the drain. If you need a drain snake, touch base with maintenance to prevent damage to the pipes. Air filters: Unless documented in your contract, you're on the hook to replace the furnace filter. Failing to do so will reduce the flow of air and make your rooms uncomfortable. If you no longer see light through the filter, it's time for a replacement. Your maintenance team may provide or change filters for you, so make sure you find out. Regular Cleaning: Unfortunately, cleaning your Noblesville apartment is a job for you. That goes for both your interior and exterior patio space.
