HIRING A CONDO CHECKER IS NECESSARY.

  • Turn on the air conditioning and set the thermostat at 78 degrees.

  • The dehumidifier should be set at 65 degrees (humidity) and the thermostat at 75 degrees.

  • Unplug major appliances and turn off the circuit breaker for the water heater.

  • Although a surge protector reduces the risk of a blow-out, there is still the possibility of fire.

  • Run two trays of ice cubes through the garbage disposal, then sanitize with baking soda and water.

  • Turn off the main water supply to your unit. It is located in the laundry room.

  • Do not leave flour or pasta products stored in cupboards as they create a favorable environment for insects.

  • Leave bedroom doors, drawers, closets and cabinets ajar.

  • Bring in all patio furniture, plants and movable objects from the balconies.

  • CLOSE ALL HURRICANE SHUTTERS. No shutters are permitted to be left open.

  • Do not leave your unit with the stove/ oven, dishwasher, or washer/ dryer operating.
