Every home has possible hazards, including your Brownsburg apartment. Pests, broken things, unsupervised pets, lit candles, and more can risk your safety as well as others. Luckily, with a bit of forethought and help from your apartment maintenance team, you can make your home and apartment community safer for everyone. If you’re concerned you’ve missed something, use these apartment safety tips for Brownsburg Residents to help.

Report Broken Things To The Maintenance Staff

If a fixture or appliance in your Brownsburg apartment breaks, report it as soon as possible to your apartment maintenance or management team. A malfunctioning kitchen appliance could lead to a fire or gas leak. Leaky plumbing can burst later or cause mold and water damage. Rough edges or detached floor materials can cause cuts and falls. You should also tell someone about broken things outdoors around the community, such as fences, fallen tree limbs, railings, and playground equipment. The maintenance staff will gladly take care of such things for everyone’s safety.

Secure All Of Your Entryways

No matter how safe you feel in your neighborhood and town, break-ins can still happen. You might not be allowed to install a security system in your Brownsburg apartment, but locking your doors is an easy way to prevent an intrusion. If you feel your locks aren’t secure enough, speak to the apartment management team about getting new ones.

Address Pest Infestations Right Away

Everyone has seen a bug in their home at least once. But if you get a lot of bugs or a rodent, take action immediately. These pests can spread illness and contaminate your food. You’ll find lots of home pest control products on the market for a quick fix. But you should also contact your maintenance team if you discover infestations or rodents. They can work with an exterminator and repair cracks and holes where animals get in.

Keep An Eye On Your Pets

Unsupervised pets can create dangerous situations for others and themselves, even in the most pet-friendly apartment communities. Never let your four-legged friend out alone where someone or something could harm them. Only remove their leash outside if your community has a leash-free dog park. And ask neighbors not to pet your animal if people stress it out.

Drive Safely Around Your Community

There are outside apartment safety tips in Brownsburg too, such as driving safely. Respect the posted speed limits in your neighborhood, watch for pedestrians, and don’t drive distracted. Lock car doors to prevent theft. And watch out for slippery surfaces when walking or driving in the parking lot in winter.

Prioritize Good Fire Safety

Every house fire is scary, but apartment fires put multiple households in danger. If your apartment management allows burning candles or grills, always take great care. Put out candles before you fall asleep or leave. Don’t let children and pets play near open flames. Or consider using electric candles or candle warmers.

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