(Just the) July 2014 Maintenance tip of the Month!

Ahoy-hoy tenants! This month, grease is the word, the word because I heard*…”“Don’t pour fats, oils and grease down the drain. When leftover oil and grease are rinsed down the drain, it can clog sewer pipes and lead to sewage spills in the Bay. Instead, wipe oily pots and pans with a paper towel and place them into the green composting bin. You can also put excess grease in a can, and put it in the trash or you can take large quantities of oil and grease to a collection site.”

This relates to a service request we received earlier this month regarding a backed up kitchen drain. Our diligent maintenance crew tried to snake the drain, no joy. They took apart the P-trap, no joy. They tried a longer snake, again, no joy. Maintenance was forced to go to our basement, open up the drain pipes from the offending unit, and snake the drain piecemeal. Happy happy joy joy, but still, it took ages to get that drain clear. And the reason?

That’s right, grease. I know, I know, it would be a major hassle to follow the instructions above to the letter, but still, please please please do not dump excess grease down your drains.

Originally "The Central Hotel", built by Edward Rolkin in 1907, 574 3rd St: Central Apartments used to consist of 440 small rooms and several storefronts across the first floor, including a large saloon and dining room. Currently family-owned and managed, over the past 44-years Central Apartments has been converted to the thriving multi-family apartment community it is today. Couple constant upgrades and renovations with astute attention to detail and CNT is now a bona fide fixture of the SoMa/South Beach area, a multi-family apartment community that features a total of 102 apartments. From our smallest studios to our two studios with storage lofts to our two junior one-bedrooms to our one-bedrooms to our one two-bedroom, all our apartments are wired for high-speed internet and boast updated plumbing lines and electrical fixtures. Combine that with our usual apartment amenities - granite countertops, hardwood floors (entry, living room, bedroom), granite tile floors (kitchen and bathroom), gas stoves, range hoods, sturdy cabinetry, along with the fact that we include all utilities (excluding internet and cable service) with the monthly rental charge? Located three blocks from Giants Stadium, Chase Center right up the way and practically across the street from the lush oasis of South Park, we boast a perfect 100 Transit Score.
