Start 2015 off fresh with these green cleaning and organizing tips!

Below are a few tips to spruce up your apartment for the new year. 

1) Go through cabinets, closets, and desks to find and recycle all unneeded paper products.
2) Feeling the burden of an overstuffed closet? Give your old clothes a second life; donate any unused clothing to Goodwill!
3) Recycle your electronic products. Most electronics stores will take your old or broken products and recycle them. Avoid tossing those in the trash!
4) Use eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Most stores carry a great selection of environmentally friendly cleaning products, pick some up on your next shopping trip. Or, better yet - make your own! Simple household items like baking soda and vinegar can be used for any number of jobs.
5) Freshen up! Simmering water, citrus peel, and fresh mint or basil will lighten up the air in your apartment without any added toxins from synthetic air-fresheners (and it will save you money as well!). Make sure you never leave your stove unattended. 

Why wait until spring, when cleaning can be this simple? Keeping it green will help your apartment stay healthy and toxin free. What are your favorite go-to green cleaning or organizing tips? Comment below to share your ideas!

It’s the time of year to bring out holiday decorations and get in the festive spirit. No matter what size space; a little creativity can go a long way in transforming any room in your home. Here are some tips to help you get started! 

1. Holiday Cards - if you’re receiving holiday greeting cards from friends and family you can use them as wall decorations next to other holiday-themed decorations
2. Half Trees - if your space does not support an entire tree you can utilize a half or even quarter tree (for corners) to save space
3. “Gingerbread” Houses - use graham crackers to to create a mini “gingerbread” house
4. Windows - make use of your window space by creating beautiful snowflakes with a glue gun
5. Serving Tray - if you’re hosting guests, consider a tiered serving tray (stacked vertically) to save table space
6. Ornaments - get creative with your ornament decorations and hang them from your ceiling - bonus points for hanging them on lights

Summer is almost over!

Time for one last vacation before the warm weather ends? Click below for tips to keep your home safe while you enjoy your vacation.

1. Let the landlord or office manager know you will be out of town. They can hold any mail or packages that come for you, and more importantly watch for any suspicious activity around your home.  
2. You can arrange to have a trusted friend or neighbor watch your home while you are out of town. Make sure to give your landlord or office manager the name of the person you have watching your home so they do not report this person as a trespasser.      
3. Unplug electronics that are not absolutely necessary while you are away. Most electronics still use power if you leave them plugged in. Examples of things to unplug include: TVs, video game systems, lamps, computers, and small kitchen appliances.
4. Clean your home before you leave. Remove any perishable foods from the refrigerator, take out the garbage, and sweep or vacuum.  Why ruin your vacation by having to clean when you return home?
5. Lastly, if you are not taking your car on a long road trip, make sure to remove all valuables and park it in a safe place.

Spring is here and summer is near. That means amazing weather, bbq’s and a new opportunity to grow some flowers or vegetables. You do not need a huge garden to achieve this. In fact window gardening is becoming very popular for apartment renters. Here are some tips and tricks to get you off on the right foot with window gardening this spring. 

- Select plants that will grow well in your environment. Take into account average temperature and how much sunlight your window gets. Some ideas to get you started include basil, peppers and green onions.
- Add high quality potting mix to your pots.
- Sow your seeds about ½ an inch apart.
- Water your plants based on their needs. Some plants need more water than others.

Please comment below with a list of what you are growing on your window sill this spring!

#July is a month to celebrate with family and friends!
 
Some of the best summer celebrations involve barbeques or cookouts. Click below for a few safety tips for your next get together. 

1. Whether you use a charcoal or gas barbeque always make sure to follow proper safety precautions when lighting, cooking, and storing the barbeque.  Follow factory guidelines when using lighter fluid or propane tanks, clean your grill regularly to prevent grease fires, and store your grill away from anything that is flammable or hazardous. 
2. You should know the proper cooking temperatures and preparation for the food you are serving at your get together (especially meat). The last thing you want to do is make your friends or family sick. 
3. Make sure to have plenty of drinking water on hand so your guests can stay well hydrated.
4. Provide shade or a covered area where your guests can get out of the sun and cool off.
5. If you will be serving alcoholic beverages at your get together, please enjoy responsibly and make sure your guests do so as well.
6. If you will be lighting off #fireworks at your get together make sure you use extreme caution when handling, lighting, and disposing of the fireworks.  Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby, never point the fireworks toward anyone else, and always stand a safe distance from the devices.  Make sure you know local laws and regulations regarding pyrotechnics and fireworks.

Summer is here!

Click below for tips to help you have a happy and healthy summer! 

1. Do you want to save energy, money, and keep your home cool this summer? Remember to keep windows and blinds closed during the hotter hours of the day, turn off any unnecessary lights or appliances when not in use, and use ceiling or window fans at night to cool your home  

2. During summer we all like to open up windows and let the fresh air flow through our homes. Unfortunately, many people forget you should always close and lock your windows when leaving home whether it is just for the day or for a long summer vacation. 

3. There is nothing worse than getting into your car when it has been sitting in the sun all day. Park your car in a shaded or covered parking spot. Over time this can also help save the paint job and interior of your car. 

4 Get outdoors to enjoy your favorite sport or hobby, stay hydrated, and regularly apply sunscreen. These simple things can go a long way to keeping you happy and healthy this summer

MAINTENANCE - Never the same person employed longer that 3 months, never complete work orders even if you submit a 7 day notice in writing to the office. Grounds are not kept up daily poor outdoor lighting at night. NEVER CHANGE OUT AIR FILTERS OR PERFORM MANDATORY INSPECTIONS OFFICE STAFF - Rent to all section 8, HUD, and any individual who shows interest in their community. Lots of drug activity, loud parties, and sleepless nights due to your neighbors. EMERGENCY ON-CALL (VALLEY PROTECTIVE SERVICES) - The cheapest company in town never come out when you call nor do they patrol the property at night PARKING - The gate off of Snow Heights is suppose to be locked at 9:00pm at night never is always left open I have lived here for 1 year and am counting down the days so that I may move out. If you are looking for an apartment to rent LOOK ELSEWHERE there are better places that this old run down place.

Cockroach infested. Neigbours tobacco smoke fills your apartment. You can't use your balcony because people below never take their dogs out but let them poop on theirs. Requests for fixes have not been answered. Staff will give discount toward your rent for writing false evaluations on apartment ratings websites about the apartments. Stay as far away from this place as possible.

If you hate cockroaches I urge anyone, STRONGLY, not to move in to these apartments. I had a year lease with them from April 2012 to April 2013. My roommate and I really liked the apartments during the walk through but that changed quickly. During the warm months, all summer long and throughout spring and fall, the place was completely infested. We found them in our food, kitchen, living room you name it. Worst of all, on several occasions, crawling on us while we slept. I'm still scarred from the experience. We notified the office several times and they would simply have pest control stop by once a month. That did nothing. We also had roach baits everywhere, boric acid everywhere, and we'd plug up drains at night. There were no beating these pests. I hope my story helped some of you in your decision finding a new home.

This is terrible complex, unsafe parking lot even though it's semi-gated. A lot of the apartments are in bad repair though they may seem okay at first site. The weekend we moved in it took them 3 days to repair something in the kitchen that had apparently not been hooked up correctly and consequently left water flowing everywhere when we had to use the kitchen sink. And yes WE HAD to use the sink because the dishwasher was broken for 3 weeks. After living here for about a month we walked into our apartment one evening and found our entire kitchen area flooded. Turned out that someone else's plumbing had backed up into our apartment. The girls in the front office are pretty nice, as are all of the maintenance men that I've had contact with, but there is one really rude man in the front office. Tenants seem really varied, although, I can't help but point out someone stole our welcome mat and I personally witness someone tell their 6-7 year old kid that it was okay to pee themselves in the pool area ( standing in the corner). We only got a 6 month lease but IT IS STILL WAY TOO LONG. I can't wait to get away from this place. It has been a real nightmare.

I took a walk through and there are dirty diapers and trash in front of the apartments. Its disgusting, my friend who lives there said that the trash is always outside the apartment by her and they haven't done anything about it. I would not want to walk outside my apartment and smell dirty baby diapers. GROSS. other then that I would probably like it..
