Maintenance Monday – turn off breakers while away

Don’t forget one very important item on your to-do list while preparing for your vacation – turn off your breakers. If you are going to be away for an extended period of time, please call the maintenance office to turn off all the breakers in your apartment except for the refrigerator and smoke detector. You need to leave the breaker for the refrigerator on because if you turn it off, then it will cause bacteria growth and can cause damage to the refrigerator. You must leave the breaker for the smoke detector on because of fire safety codes.
