Emergency Maintenance Issues
Here are the maintenance issues considered to be maintenance emergencies:
Electrical Power Outage
If the outage is exclusive to your home, not the result of non-payment or an area outage, please contact us.
Fire in Appliance
Call the fire department and notify us after first responders have taken care of the issue and left the home.
Damage to the home due to Fire, Flooding, Storms, or Trees
If the home is not secure, livable, or cannot repel weather.
Garage Door Damage
If the garage door cannot be opened either automatically or manually, and a vehicle is unable to be removed from garage.
If you smell gas, please exit the home and immediately call the fire department. Once the home is safe, please contact us
If the temperature indoors is above 85 degrees or below 55 degrees.
If there is flooding that cannot be stopped by the resident and is not caused by weather.
Pool Fence or Pool Gate Damage
If there’s damage that prevents the pool fence or gate from functioning properly and keeping the pool area secure.
Unsafe Upstairs flooring
If flooring on the second floor is unstable or unsafe to walk on.
Your safety is our top priority. Please make sure that you and your loved ones are safe and secure in an emergency situation and contact local authorities and first responders when necessary before contacting us.
We’re happy to take care of any maintenance requests, however, if the maintenance is for something that falls under your responsibility, a minimum service fee of $105 will apply. If you have any questions about these maintenance responsibilities, service issues, or what constitutes a maintenance emergency, please contact us at 833.PRG.RESS (833.774.7377) or [email protected]
