As winter arrives, so do weather conditions that can wreak havoc on apartment buildings. Now is the time to make sure your buildings are prepared for things such as freezes, snow and broken heating systems. Here are a few things you can get on top of now to make sure your buildings and residents stay safe over the winter months.
- Be sure that you have ice melt, shovels and a way to distribute the ice melt on hand. This will help keep residents safe when the snow starts falling
- Disconnect hoses and make sure sprinkler systems have been blown out for the winter.
- Change out filters in each apartment and check over heating systems to make sure everything is running smoothly.
- Send out a reminder or check list to your residents to remind them of things they can do in their apartments to prepare for winter. This may include a reminder for residents not to turn their heat down too low, to protect pipes from freezing.
