The Maintenance department's role is to provide quality services which ensure safe living environments to all individuals we support and to provide safe Agency work environments.
"To obtain and implement a paperless maintenance system"
The Maintenance department's 2020-2021 goal is to obtain and implement a paperless maintenance system. This goal will provide a more efficient Work Order (W/O) process, which will allow us to improve the following: reaction times, access to past W/O logs, better communication, and accountability for all. We look forward to all the positive change and advancements this goal will help us to achieve.
MAINTENANCE REPORTING PROCESS
As summer is now over and the warmer days are almost gone, make your life easier by taking care of some end-of-summer maintenance tasks before colder air rolls in. Please complete these tasks before it’s too late:
Yards should be free of unwanted items & debris. Please collect & bag all leaves in the yard. There will be dump runs scheduled for the “LIVING” locations so please notify the Maintenance Department or your supervisor if you have unwanted items.
Sprinklers, garden hoses & lawn mowers need to be stored in a shed, garage or storage area for the winter to avoid damages.
Outdoor taps, underground sprinkler systems (if applicable) should be winterized as well. This is typically something that the Landlord would take care of. Maintenance will be taking care of this task for the NSR houses.
Please make sure that all houses have shovels, and De-icer available. (De-icer for NSR houses will be provided as per rental agreement by the middle of October)
Make sure there isn’t any paper recycling, cardboard or any other flammable material stored in the furnace room. Schedule to take these items monthly.
Furnace filters need to be purchased & changed. Please check with your “LIVING” supervisor if you are unsure whose responsibility it is to change filters (tenant or landlord). Furnace filters will be provided to all NSR houses per rental agreement.
