Care and Cleaning

Bathroom tub and sink – Use of any abrasive cleanser (e.g. Comet®) or abrasive pad/sponge will permanently damage the finish and render them impossible to clean thereafter. Damage of this nature is your responsibility. Use NON-ABRASIVE CLEANERS ONLY such as Scrubbing Bubbles®.

Kitchen sink – DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL PADS OR HARSH SCOURING POWDERS SUCH AS COMET OR BON-AMI. These will scratch the stainless steel surface. It is best to use a soft rag using soap and water or specially formulated stainless steel cleaners found at many hardware and appliance stores.

Cabinets and Drawers – Water and wood do not coexist very well. Do not place wet or moist items in drawers or cabinets.

Walls – DO NOT use adhesive tape, sticky hangers, molly bolts, contact paper, anchors (particularly self-drilling) or any other type of material or device which will damage the walls. Small nails and picture hangers (less than 1/8 inch in diameter) in reasonable quantities (less than 18 small holes per room) are acceptable as long as they are NOT within two inches of the ceiling, molding or baseboard. An example is shown to the right — the red area represents the two inch no-hole zone; the green area shows where small holes are permitted.

Ceilings – Holes and attachments of any kind (tape, hangers, anchors, etc) are strictly prohibited. Repairs almost always require repainting the entire ceiling, an expensive proposition.

Carpets – should be professionally cleaned as needed to maintain proper appearance and condition. For everyone's convenience, a professional carpet cleaner is scheduled at the end of each lease period to clean the carpets at a reduced group rate.

Bathroom Mirror – Spray the cleaner directly onto a cloth, never the mirror surface. Avoid cleaners with a heavy ammonia base, this damages the backing and mirror edges. A cleaning solution (and moisture in general) that penetrates the back of the glass destroys the silver coating resulting in non-reflecting black spots.


All trash should be placed in a plastic garbage bag. Do not leave trash of any kind on your front or back porch/deck or in any of the common areas. Please dispose of trash in the dumpster located in front of the 600 building. Do not leave items on the ground next to the dumpster or toss trash from behind or the side of a dumpster.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a great way to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There are three ceiling fans — one in each bedroom and one in the living area. During the summer the fan should blow air straight down, so your ceiling fan needs to run in a counter clockwise direction as you look up at it. The warmer it is, the higher the speed should be. During the winter, your fan should run at a low speed in a clockwise direction.

The ceiling fan makes you feel cooler in the summer by creating an artificial breeze that evaporates moisture from your skin. This allows you to set your thermostat higher, saving money on air conditioning bills. When the fan rotates counterclockwise (while looking up at it), the slant of the blades pushes air down, causing a noticeable breeze. The faster the fan spins, the cooler you feel.

The opposite effect can be achieved in the winter by gently circulating hot air trapped near the ceiling. Since heat rises, the temperature near the ceiling is greater than at floor level. The fan is set to rotate clockwise on low to keep from creating a strong draft, which would cool you down just like it does in summer. Instead, the air near the ceiling is pushed up and outward, causing it to circulate down near the perimeter of the room. With the air at floor level being warmer, the thermostat can be set lower, saving money and helping the environment at the same time. Heat generated by the fan’s motor is a bonus in the winter, so you can keep it running whether you are present in the room or not.

A two position sliding switch is located on the body of the fan motor. Slide the switch up (towards the ceiling) for clockwise rotation (winter mode which moves air towards the ceiling). Slide the switch down (towards the floor) for counter clockwise rotation (summer mode which moves air towards the floor).

Separate wall switches control power to the ceiling fan light (switch furthest from the fan) and the ceiling fan motor (switch closest to the fan). Two pull chains located on the fan control the light (chain through the center post without a handle should be left in the on position) and the fan motor speed (chain off-center through the glass dome with a wooden handle). The fan has three running motor speeds with the fastest speed selected first. Successive pulls of the chain select medium, low, and off.


A number of appliances are provided for your convenience. We ask that you familiarize yourself with their proper operation. We encourage you to “read the manual” recognizing that this is not a popular activity. Improper use of an appliance may require an expensive service call for which you are responsible.

Cooking Safety

More than 100 million cooktops and ranges are being used in the U.S., most without incident. Cooking, when done properly, is a safe activity. However, unattended cooking remains the leading cause of household fires in the U.S. and Canada.

With a few simple steps, you can greatly reduce the risk of cooking fires.  Whether stirring up a quick dinner or creating a masterpiece four-course meal, here is a Recipe for Safer Cooking that you need to use daily.

Follow these steps to prevent cooking fires:
