How to remain safe in your apartment

 

Pet friendly apartments-Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

Staying safe in your apartment requires a little effort on the tenant. I lock my door every time I leave my apartment, whether I am walking the dog or taking out the trash. I also make sure that the bar is securely across the patio door. If the bushes in front of my apartment grow too wild, I call the front office. When I am in the house for the evening, I place security bars against the back door and the front door. I purchased these items for $20 apiece.

Apartment Living also suggests a few tips:

  • If you are moving in, make sure that your smoke detectors were recently tested
  • Purchase carbon monoxide detectors
  • Keep your apartment clean, so that you do not attract critters
  • Make sure your locks were changed before you moved in
  • Do not give out keys to anyone who does not live in the apartment
  • Do not get on the elevator with a stranger
  • Report bad lighting to the front office
  • Keep personal records in a fireproof box
  • Be aware of your surroundings when entering your apartment
  • Purchase light timers for nights when you are away from home
