Why You Should Look For 24/7 On-site Apartment Maintenance in Fishers

August 07, 2020

It’s after midnight, and while you’re off to sleep, you start to hear a persistent drip. You look up, noticing a water spot on the ceiling that’s quickly getting larger. Anxiety falls upon you as you scamper to find a bucket or bowl to capture the dripping water.

What’s your next move? Do you have an emergency contact for maintenance? How much time will you have to wait until they show up? Is this something that will have to wait until they open up ? Or were you smart enough to live in a complex with 24/7 on-site emergency apartment maintenance in Fishers?

What Exactly Is An Emergency Maintenance Call?

With a little luck, almost all of your apartment maintenance queries will be simple. You may find that your blocked shower drain demands a more work than a bottle of Drano. Or perhaps you inadvertently put a dent in the wall trying to put up some curtains. These can be bothersome snafus that can hang on until the next day instead of needing a rushed repair in the midnight hour.

Then there are some problems that require instant maintenance. Forget about a leaky pipe and all your things in your 1-bedroom apartment could see significant damage. A broken fire alarm can keep you -- and the building -- restless all night. Emergency repair could also be needed if your Other complexes route your request to a voicemail box, which then is forwarded to the on-call apartment manager, who then forwards the request to an outside contractor,that then drives over to your apartment to assess the damage.

The response time between the separate situations can seem staggering, especially when you’re worried about your safety . When your apartment has 24-hour emergency maintenance, then someone who can help should be there in minutes or at the very least give you an ETA. That’s much better than sitting around for hours wondering if an outside service is coming.

A Few Maintenance Questions To Ask On Your Apartment Tour

While you tour your apartment and see the list of apartment amenities in Fishers, make sure to ask about their maintenance procedures. Especially, ask these questions:
  • Does your building employ on-site maintenance workers or will they contract out?

  • Do you submit repair tickets by online or phone?

  • What’s the emergency maintenance system ? And how long will it take for a real person to show up?

These are responses that you should understand before it’s midnight and you’re wading through the apartment flood pouring down from your upstairs neighbor’s toilet.
