Everyone’s home has hidden dangers, including your Fishers apartment. Pests, broken things, unsupervised pets, lit candles, and more can risk your safety as well as others. Luckily, you can make your home and apartment community safer for everyone with some forethought and assistance from your apartment’s maintenance team. If you’re worried you’ve missed something, these apartment safety tips for Fishers Residents can help.

Notify The Maintenance Crew About Broken Things

If a fixture or appliance in your Fishers apartment breaks, notify your apartment maintenance or management team immediately. A malfunctioning kitchen appliance could lead to a fire or gas leak. Leaking plumbing can burst eventually or cause mold and water damage. Jagged edges can cause cuts, and loose floor materials can cause falls. You should also point out broken things outside in the community, such as fallen tree limbs, railings, playground equipment, and fences. The maintenance staff will gladly resolve these issues for the general safety.

Lock All Of Your Doors

Even if you feel safe in your neighborhood and town, break-ins can still happen. You probably can’t put in an alarm system for your Fishers apartment, but locking your doors is an easy way to keep intruders at bay. If you feel your locks aren’t secure enough, talk to the apartment management team about getting replacements.

Address Pest Problems Right Away

Everyone finds a bug inside at some time. But if you get lots of bugs or a small animal, take action right away. Such pests can give people illness and eat your food. You’ll find many home pest deterrents at stores for a quick fix. But you should also get help from your maintenance team when finding infestations or rodents. They can send an exterminator and fix cracks and holes where animals slip in.

Keep Tabs On Your Pets

Unsupervised pets can create dangerous situations for themselves and others, even in pet-friendly apartment communities. Don’t let your four-legged friend roam free where someone or something could harm them. Only remove their leash outside if your apartment has a leash-free dog park. And discourage neighbors from petting your dog if people stress it out.

Drive Safely Around Your Neighborhood

We have outside apartment safety tips in Fishers too, such as driving safely. Follow the posted speed limits on the streets, watch for pedestrians, and don’t drive distracted. Lock car doors to prevent theft. And look for ice when walking or driving in the parking lot in winter.

Practice Good Fire Safety

Every house fire is scary, but apartment fires put multiple households in danger. If your apartment management allows burning candles or grills, always take precautions. Blow out candles before you leave or fall asleep. Don’t use open flames near pets or children. Or consider using electric candles or candle warmers.

Don’t leave a grill unsupervised, and place it several feet away from trees, buildings, children, and pets. Always put out flames by tightly closing the vents or soaking the charcoal for several hours before you put away the grill.
