Check for Signs of Damages

You must inspect the apartment for any damages that may have occurred during the previous tenants' stay or during the move-in process. Check the walls, floors, and ceilings for any cracks, holes, or water stains. Ensure that the windows and doors are functioning correctly and do not have any damage. If you notice any damages, report them to apartment management immediately to avoid being held responsible for any pre-existing damages.

Ensure Your Appliances Work Properly

Check that all the appliances in the apartment are working properly when you move in. Turn on the stove and oven to ensure that the burners are functioning correctly and that the oven is heating up. Check the refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher to ensure that they are in good working order. Make sure the light fixtures in the apartment to ensure all of the bulbs are working and that there aren’t any broken bulbs. Also ensure your shower, sinks, toilet, washer, and dryer work efficiently to keep your apartment running as smoothly as possible.


Check Your Thermostat and HVAC System

A comfortable living space is essential, and your HVAC system plays a significant role in achieving this. Check the thermostat to ensure that it is working correctly and that it is set to your preferred temperature. If the apartment has central air conditioning, check that it is functioning properly, and ensure that the air filters have been recently replaced. If the apartment has heating, ensure that it is working and that the vents are not clogged. If there are any issues, report them to us to make sure the problems are addressed.

Check the Power Outlets

Make sure you inspect all of the power outlets throughout the apartment to ensure they work correctly. Go to every outlet and plug in your device to ensure you are getting power to the outlets. If any of the outlets aren’t receiving power, contact us to have our maintenance team inspect your outlets and electrical components so they can determine the source of the issue and fix it accordingly to ensure you are getting optimal power in your apartment.
