Spring Maintenance

Clean Balcony Tracks

Along the edge of your balcony, there is a finishing strip of metal that should be checked each spring. Cleaning out any debris that may have become lodged between your balcony door and the metal threshold will prevent water from entering your suite and ensure it drains away from your home.


WEEKLY

Dryer Lint Traps

Your home is equipped with a secondary lint trap, located in the ceiling of your laundry area. These lint traps should be cleaned out each time to finish doing laundry. Blockages can increase drying time and humidity levels within your home.


QUARTERLY

Fan Coil Filters

Filters depending upon your lifestyle filters should be changed about every 3 months. Homes with smokers, pets, or residents with environmental sensitivities may need their filters changed more frequently.

Check Your Windows

Many people crank their awning windows open or closed too hard and they become “stripped,” just like a bolt. Usually, the arm (the metal piece that holds the window to the handle and looks like scissors) will come loose as a result. If over crank your window, you’ll be able to open your windows but you won’t be able to close them again. Contact your Property Management office to see if they have someone whose services they can offer.
