Procedures for Requesting Maintenance
1. Before submitting a maintenance request.
Check to see the problem is fixable. Please read the following examples carefully.
Change air filter. Check ALL circuit breakers often during hot weather or if a circuit breaker overloads, it will trip off the circuit A/C breaker. Often it is difficult to see that the breaker is tripped and it will look like it is not. Therefore, the breaker must be turned all the way off and then all the way on. The breaker must be turned all the way off because it will not “reset” itself to correct the problem.
Check underneath on the disposal unit for the RED reset button that may need to be reset. If something is stuck & the blades do not turn you can purchase a disposal wrench from Lowes or Home Depot for less than $5.00 and give it a twist. This will often break the disposal loose & it will work. Be sure garbage disposal is turned OFF while doing this.
In the patio, kitchen or bathroom, check reset button on ALL GFCI (Ground fault interrupter).
Check all appliances to see if the circuits are being overloaded with appliances such as irons, microwave, toaster, curling irons, blow dryers, etc.
Tenants are responsible for the replacement of batteries. If the new battery does not work, call in a work order. Notify Management if the smoke alarm is not working. Remember, a smoke alarm is for safety and it is very important to check it regularly to see if it is working.
2. Determine whether it’s an emergency or non-emergency item:
- Fire, flood, uncontrollable water, electrical problem, smell of gas, etc…
- For emergencies causing immediate danger such as fire, call 911.
- For emergencies involving IMMEDIATE electrical danger, call the utility service.
- Loss of heat or air conditioning is not an emergency. First Management, Inc. recognizes this is a priority item and will make it a priority with the vendors to have the heat working as soon as is possible.
- Loss of HVAC, non-working dishwasher, sprinklers, etc…
3. Describe the problem in detail.
If your request involves an appliance, please describe the appliance, including make, model and color. This may help expedite the repair.
Online maintenance requests are only monitored during regular business hours.
Under normal circumstances, you should receive a response from our office or contact from a vendor within 1-3 days. If you are not contacted, please call our office at (402) 344-4600.
