November 30, 2022

Every home has invisible hazards, even your Noblesville apartment. Unsupervised pets, broken things, pests, 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 a little forethought and assistance from your apartment’s maintenance staff. If you’re concerned you’ve forgotten something, use our apartment safety tips for Noblesville Residents to help.

Report Broken Things To The Maintenance Team

If a fixture or appliance in your Noblesville apartment breaks, notify your apartment management or maintenance team as soon as possible. A malfunctioning kitchen appliance could cause a gas leak or fire. Leaky plumbing can result in water damage and mold or burst eventually. Jagged edges can cause cuts, and detached flooring can cause falls. You should also point out broken things outdoors around the property, such as fences, fallen tree limbs, railings, and playground equipment. The maintenance crew will gladly take care of these concerns for everyone’s safety.

Lock Each Of Your Entryways

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

Fight Pest Problems Right Away

Everyone has seen a creepy crawly inside at some time. But if you see a swarm of insects or a rodent, get rid of them immediately. These critters can spread diseases and eat your food. You’ll find many home pest deterrents at stores for a quick fix. But you should also contact your maintenance crew if you discover infestations or rodents. They can send an exterminator and fix cracks and holes where creatues get in.

Watch Out For Your Pets

Unsupervised pets can create dangerous situations for others and themselves, even if you live in a pet-friendly community. Never let your pet out alone where someone or something could hurt them. Only take them off a leash outside if your apartment has a leash-free dog park. And discourage neighbors from petting your animal if people stress it out.

Drive Smart Around Your Neighborhood

There are outside apartment safety tips in Noblesville too, including driving safely. Follow the posted speed limits in your neighborhood, watch for pedestrians, and don’t drive distracted. Keep your car locked to prevent theft. And look for ice when driving or walking in the parking lot in winter.

Follow Good Fire Safety

Any house fire is tragic, but an apartment fire puts several households at risk. If your apartment management allows grills or burning candles, always take great care. Blow out candles before you fall asleep or leave. Don’t let pets or children play near open flames. Better yet, use candle warmers or electric candles.

Never leave a grill unsupervised, and keep it several feet away from buildings, trees, pets, and children. Always extinguish flames by soaking the coals or tightly closing the vents for a few hours before putting away the grill.
