Everyone’s home has hidden dangers, even your apartment in Fishers. Lit candles, broken things, pests, unsupervised pets, and more can put you and others in danger. Luckily, with a little precaution and help from your apartment’s maintenance specialists, you can make your home and apartment community safer for everyone. If you’re concerned you’ve forgotten something, use these apartment safety tips for Fishers Residents to help.

Notify The Maintenance Team About Broken Things

If a fixture or appliance in your Fishers apartment breaks, report it quickly to your apartment management or maintenance team. A malfunctioning kitchen appliance could start a fire or gas leak. Leaking plumbing can cause water damage and mold or burst eventually. Jagged edges can cause cuts, and loose flooring can cause falls. You should also tell someone about broken things outdoors in the community, such as fences, fallen tree limbs, railings, and playground equipment. The maintenance crew will gladly resolve such problems for everyone’s safety.

Secure Each Of Your Doors

No matter how safe you feel in your neighborhood and town, break-ins might still occur. You may not be allowed to install a security system in your Fishers apartment, but locking your doors is a simple way to deter intruders. If you feel your locks aren’t strong enough, talk to the property management team about getting new ones.

Fight Pest Problems Right Away

Everyone has seen a bug inside at some time. But if you notice lots of insects or a small animal, take action immediately. These critters can spread illness and chew on your food. You’ll see lots of home pest control products on the market for a quick solution. But you should also contact your maintenance crew if you have infestations or rodents. They can send an exterminator and fix cracks and holes where animals sneak in.

Keep Tabs On Your Pets

Unsupervised pets can pose a danger to themselves and others, even in the most pet-friendly apartment communities. Never let your pet out alone where someone or something could harm them. Only take them off a leash outside if your community has a leash-free dog park. And ask neighbors not to pet your animal if it isn’t fully socialized.

Drive Safely Around Your Neighborhood

There are outside apartment safety tips in Fishers too, such as driving safely. Respect the posted speed limits on the streets, watch for pedestrians, and don’t drive distracted. Keep your car locked to prevent theft. And look for ice when driving or walking in the parking lot in winter.

Follow Good Fire Safety

Every house fire is tragic, but an apartment fire puts multiple households in harm’s way. If your apartment management allows grills or burning candles, always take great care. Blow out candles before you leave or fall asleep. Don’t use open flames near children and pets. Better yet, use candle warmers or electric candles.

Never leave a grill unsupervised, and place it several feet away from trees, buildings, children, and pets. Always put out flames by soaking the charcoal or completely closing the vents for a few hours before putting the grill away.
