Maintenance

Carpeted Floors

Your apartment’s carpet is Godfrey Hirst Carpet 100% wool, Twyne range, Hi Lo Loop Pile, pile height –

7mm. It is recommended to have regular maintenance as it will prolong the life span of the carpet.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink

The brand of the sink is Infinite Kitchen Solutions

Regal Series Under Mount Sink and it is made from highest grade premium stainless steel. Due to a high level of pure nickel content in the stainless steel, nickel oxide will form on the surface of the sink causing dullness and scratching.

It is recommended to clean the sink with a stainless steel cleaner (e.g. Steelfix) and a foam sponge during the first four weeks after installation. The basic steps to clean a stainless steel kitchen sink:

- Check tap washers and replace if necessary.

- Turn off stop valve (underneath the kitchen bench) or water supply to the apartment in any event of faulty tap fittings.

Lighting

Downpipes and Floor Drains

All downpipes, floor drains on balconies and all other drains must be kept completely free of debris, cigarette butts, leaves and any obstructions at all times (to be checked every 3 months).

Note: Balcony/terrace floor drains are located below pavers. To inspect the drains lift the paver with a screw driver (or similar tool) used to lever paver upwards. Once drain inspected and cleared simply place paver back down and slide back into position.

Ceiling Exhaust Fan

The ceiling exhaust fan in the bathroom and laundry helps to remove steam so that the longevity of the interior finishes will be prolonged. The fan should always be activated when showering or using the laundry facilities.

To remove condensation, the fans have a preset run on and will continue to operate for up to 5 minutes after being turned off.

It is recommended to clean the blades of exhaust fan and cover with a wet cloth every four months. Please ensure the exhaust fan is switched off before cleaning.

Always remember to leave the laundry door open when the dryer is in use to prevent formation of condensation.

How To Prevent Condensation Build-Up

Your apartment’s mechanical system has been designed using the latest innovative design in mechanical ventilation which cares for the environment.

To obtain the maximum benefit of the system it is important that your apartment is exposed to between five to ten hours of fresh air per week to prevent condensation build-up. A simple but effective way of reducing condensation build-up is to open balcony doors and windows as much as possible to increase airflow within apartments.

The exhaust fan in your bathroom should always be used if the shower is being used. It is also a good idea to leave the fan on for at least fifteen minutes after your shower to ensure any moisture in the air is adequately removed.

Condensation building up on windows and walls can be a problem because it can lead to rotting sills, sashes and frames. Please adhere to the above practical steps to prevent condensation build-up.

Fire Sprinkler System

Your apartment is provided with an automatic flush head type fire sprinkler. In the event of a fire near a sprinkler head, heat generated by the fire will cause the sprinkler to activate.

If the sprinkler is activated, a fire alarm will also be raised and the Fire Brigade will be called automatically. This will release water and flood the immediate area in the event of a fire or if the sprinkler head is accidently hit.

Fire Brigade attendance to a false alarm is charged to the Owners Corporation and can cost in excess of $6,000. The Owners Corporation will seek reimbursement for costs incurred from the resident. If you have caused a false alarm, then you will be charged for the call out cost.

Please alert the Fire Brigade immediately if a sprinkler is accidently set off by calling 000. This may help reduce the cost of the false alarm.

You are not required to carry out any maintenance or servicing of sprinkler equipment. Maintenance and servicing is the responsibility of the building management and/or their representatives. Residents are required to maintain their smoke alarms.

Sprinkler Heads

It is important to remember the following with respect to the sprinkler heads located in your apartment:

- Utmost care should be taken not to hit a sprinkler head, particularly when moving furniture or other equipment into or around you apartment.

- Do not paint the sprinkler heads under any circumstances.

- Do not hang items from the sprinkler head under any circumstances (e.g. Christmas decorations).

- Do not remove sprinkler heads under any circumstances. Only qualified personnel with permission from the Owner’s Corporation are to carry out work on the fire sprinkler system.

- Do not store materials within 500mm of any sprinkler head.

- If a leak occurs to a sprinkler head, immediately advise the Owner’s Corporation or Building Manager.

Smoke Alarms / Detectors

Your apartment is fitted with a smoke detector and if activated will not cause a general smoke alarm.

There is a smoke detector with a backup battery fixed on the ceiling outside the bedroom(s).

If there is a beeping sound in the smoke detector, replace the batteries. Batteries should be replaced every six months.

EWIS

An Emergency Warning and Intercommunication

System (EWIS) speaker is located in the bedrooms for emergency information and alarms.
