How To Properly Utilize Apartment Appliances 101
Apartment Appliances 101: Refrigerators,Stove, amd Garbage Disposals are our Number 1 maintenance requests that we receive on a daily basis. Many of the requests that we receive are 100% preventable by our tenants just by utilizing proper care of the appliances. Below are some tips on how to properly utilize your appliance to prevent them from breaking on you.
1) Stove burners: Our stove burners can only hold pots that are 8 quarts or less. By utilizing cookware that is over 8 quarters you are putting unnecessary stress on the burners and causing them to burner out. In addition it is not recommended by the manufacture to continuously cook on a high temperature everyday as this can also burner out the burners and igniter switches. By utilizing the proper cookware and temperature when cooking this can reduce the amount of times your burners stop working.
2) Refrigerators: The refrigerators and freezer work hand in hand to keep the refrigerator cool. When residents stock pile their freezers to the point they are blocking the vents and leave very little space on the sides and top of the freezer it does not allow the air to circulate and cool the refrigerator. This is what causes your refrigerator to become warm and you throwing your food away.
3) Garbage Disposals: These modern devices were created to help grind up foods that would otherwise get stuck in the plumbing pipes and thus cause back up. However they are not meant to grind up large pieces of food that should end up in the garbage. By putting rice, potato skins, grease, fruit pits, meat bones, shrimp shells, pasta, etc. this will cause your garbage disposal to lock up and will cause damage to the plumbing which can flood your apartment thus becoming an even more costly expense.
By utilizing proper care of your appliances you can help reduce the amount of maintenance requests you place and reduce the amount of stress that can occur when your appliances are down until maintenance can get to your apartment.

No other items are to be placed inside the container and can result in that individual receiving a fine for improper dumping.
