3 Reasons You Always Want Someone on Call

When you own your own home, you are the one solely responsible for the upkeep, and if something goes wrong, you’re on your own. If you rent, you have the ability to turn to an owner or property manager and say, “Hey, something went wrong and I need YOU to come and fix it.” There will always be things to fix in a home, no matter how meticulous you are about caring for it. But if you don’t own the home, you will want someone to call when a problem arises. As a tenant, you want to know that you can get ahold of someone for help and not be stuck if the rental property’s owner goes out of town or if it’s simply late at night. If you own the property, you want to know that your property is being well taken care of and you probably don’t want to be woken at two in the morning to fix an emergency problem.

When you work with a property management company, like Real Property Management Central Arkansas, both tenants and owners can rest assured knowing that there will always be someone on call for emergencies, including the ones to follow.

Broken Pipe

If you’ve ever had to deal with a broken water pipe, you know how frustrating the situation can be, even without having to get ahold of a landlord. Imagine, you notice a little leak under your bathroom sink from the water inlet. You think that it would be beneficial to simply turn this off for the evening so you can call maintenance in the morning. You start to turn it and the knob completely sheers off, quickly pouring gallons of water into your bathroom. You run around as quickly as you can to find the water turn off for the entire property. While you do manage to turn off the water, you now have no water access and tons of water on the floor. You will definitely want to have someone on call that you can contact in this situation.

HVAC Failure

If there is one part of any home that is important to be working 24/7, it’s the HVAC system. While you might be able to cope without air conditioning for a little bit during the summer if the air conditioning unit happens to fail outside of normal business hours, you certainly don’t want to try and make it through a winter night without heat. If there ever happens to be an HVAC failure at your rental, you would want to be able to touch base with someone promptly to triage the importance and be able to get a move on to the repair.


Broken Garage Door Spring

Garages are made to keep your car safely stored in them. When a garage door doesn’t open, however, you may be in for a lot of stress. Often when a garage door doesn’t open, you’re in the middle of trying to get somewhere. There could be a variety of reasons a garage door doesn’t open, holding your car hostage. But most commonly, you’ll come across a problem with the garage door spring. This isn’t something you can take care of yourself, so it’s important to be able to reach out to someone on call to help you resolve the problem promptly so you can get your car out of the garage.
