- Periodically spray the inside of your units. Insects have no boundaries, and ants and spiders may take up residence inside your unit. Stop pests in their tracks and spray the perimeter of your unit with bug spray - about once a month.
- Examine the unit after a rain storm. After a heavy rain, visit your unit and look for signs of water damage or a water leak. Report any damage to the facility manager.
- Choose a combination lock. Some thieves know how to pick a key lock, which can give them access to your belongings. For better protection, use a combination lock with a number code.
