Season Safety Measures for Your Apartment

Charlotte Property
There are fewer places we feel safe than at home. We create sanctuaries for ourselves, areas that reflect who we are and how we feel, even when we are away from the rest of the world. These areas are our refuge. We are able to come home and feel like all is right with the world. At least, that is the hope. So what happens when you realize that your home is not safe? Well, if you are the owner of an apartment building which offers this refuge to others, hopefully this is something that you check up on often. The safety of your buildings and your tenants should always be your number one priority. While we know how stressful it can be to take this kind of responsibility for others, we also know how terrifying it can be for your tenants to hand over their safety into your hands. This is why we wanted to remind you of a couple of things that you may want to check on in regards to safety during the warmer months of the year.
1. Check The Pipes. Winter can wreak absolute havoc on pipes, no matter what their age. Even if you haven’t heard of any complaints with a lack of hot water or water pressure issues from your tenants, it is always a good idea to double check all of the visible pipes once the weather begins to warm up again. After all, it is always better to catch a leak or a hole in a pipe when it is super small than when the entire basement has flooded out and no one can take a shower.
2. Check The Roof. Ice and snow can really mess up a roof, especially if it is already an older one. March winds can also cause some problems with shingles if there was already a small problem. Climb up on the roof if it is safe for you to do so, or hire someone you can trust to give you an idea of anything that may need to be done to keep your tenant’s heads nice and dry.
These are two of the simple things that you can do once the weather begins to warm up to keep your tenants safe. What are some of the things that you like to do to ensure the safety of your buildings around this time of the year?
