Maintenance Monday – fire safety

Happy Monday! Hope you enjoyed your first weekend of Fall and are refreshed and ready to start the week. This week’s Maintenance Monday tip is about Fire Safety. Please do not have a throw rug on the floor in front of the apartment entrance door because it can prevent the door from closing properly on its own, therefore becoming a potential problem should a fire occur. Our apartment doors at Burnam Woods, Chatham Gardens and Old Orchard Apartments are on a spring hinge that allows the door to close on its own without being pulled or pushed closed. This function is a fire code regulation in order to keep doors closed to prevent a backdraft, or flames traveling during a fire.
