Apartment PM Checklist for the Fall Season

Your Service Team should be doing these PM checks starting this Fall.

Here are a few things your Service team should be checking in order to avoid a sudden increase in service calls as the weather cools and rain and snow begin to fall.

Below are a few items to get you started and of course add or modify as needed.

I hope to see you at an industry event in the near future.
