Summer Vacation- Keep your Apartment safe while you're away!
Jun 24, 2019
Things get a little crazy as you are preparing for a nice vacation, or to go home for the summer. Many people forget to make a plan to keep their apartment safe while they are away. Here are 5 tips to make sure your apartment is safe in your absence:
Ask someone to keep an eye on things.
Leave a light on so it looks like someone is home.
Beware of social media. You don’t want to post that you were away, until you are back home!
Lock everything, and don’t leave a spare key out!
Stash all of your valuables in safe.
Sometimes your ideal vacation may not be in your budget, and you have to shorten your vacation and find something local. Spend your afternoon at our resort style pool. Invite your friends and have a cookout by the pool, or bring your favorite book, a cold glass of lemonade while getting that relaxing break you deserve right in your backyard!
The spring has left us, and Summer has arrived! With the weather changing it is time to trade your rain coats, and umbrellas for swimsuits and flip flops. With the warmer heat coming in, it is time to turn on your air conditioning and prepare for the hot summer days that are to come. Below are some ways to save money, but live cool at the same time! 1.) When leaving your apartment, make sure that you turn all lights off to help regulate your electricity. 2.) Make sure to leave your air set on auto instead of just turning it to on. This will help regulate the temperature in your apartment for you and your roommates. 3.) When turning your air on make sure to secure all doors and windows to make sure that no air escapes from your apartment. 4.) If your AC is not working please make sure to let the front office know, so that our amazing Maintenance team can get that fixed for you.
