This is Simple…..

Web Admin - Sunday, April 15, 2018

Having focused on appliance life expectancy and maintenance this month, we thought a bit of discussion about successful fire mitigation might be relevant as well. This information comes from a class some of our FPM Properties property managers attended recently courtesy of Puro Clean. Here are some quick facts:

84% of all fires happen in single family homes

49% of fire damage is from cooking

Some of the primary causes of residential fires:

  • Open flames & sparks
  • Electrical wiring & fixtures
  • Cooking (see above!)
  • Smoking
  • Low temperature ignition

If not mitigated within 48-72 hours, smoke damage is compounded, much like moisture damage.

Simple steps to prevention can’t hurt: KEEP IT CLEAN! Wipe down interior of microwave, keep interior, burners and hood vent clean on the stove, and keep dryer lint free. Be aware of condition of the power cords. Anything that could be flammable or create a blockage is a problem in the making…..

Life Span and Maintenance

Web Admin - Monday, April 02, 2018

So this month we’ve been talking about appliance life span and maintenance. In our business, the question of repair vs. replace inevitably comes up. We have found that taking into account the actual age of the appliance in question, it’s “expected” life span and the proposed cost of the repair can usually help arrive at the right conclusion.

In this month’s owner newsletter we’ve included some information on expected life span of various appliances. If the appliance in question is halfway or further into its “expected” lifespan and the cost of the repair will be 50% or more of the cost of replacement, it’s a fairly safe bet that replacement will be the more cost effective way to go.

There are variables to consider in repair as well—even if deemed affordable. Ease of procuring parts (which can translate into time it takes) and access to resources that can actually install them (again, time—how quickly they can be scheduled to make the repair). A refrigerator is considered more critical than, say, a microwave (and assuming the stove/oven is operational!)

Testimonials

Wanda Franklin has managed our two properties for at least 20 years, first as a property manager at another company and then as owner of Heth Realty (now FPM). She has kept us well informed of all issues, has been prompt in dealing with any problems/issues with tenants, repairs, etc., and has been a pleasure to work with. If we email or call, I know well receive an answer right away. Its difficult being 3000 miles away so its important that we have someone we can trust watching over our properties.
