HOME OWNER TIPS

HOME OWNER TIPS

Note:  Be sure to review and follow the instructions for the first two items for the safety of yourself and your neighbors.
SECONDARY DRYER LINT TRAP
Above your dryer and below the exhaust booster, you will find a grey metal box. This is the secondary dryer lint trap.  The exhaust booster should activate whenever your dryer is running (you can hear it running when the dryer heats up) and the secondary dryer lint trap must be cleaned on a routine basis to prevent the possibility of a fire.  To clean the unit, open the door, remove the screen, discard any lint and wash the screen before returning it to the unit.   There are currently 2 types of lint traps being used.  You can change or reposition your lint trap to make it easier to use.
 
If you need a replacement for the Fantech type of lint trap, contact the Management Company, Arthur Edwards.
WASHING MACHINE HOOKUPS
It is required that you use the leak resistant metal encased connection hoses (without the shut off valve) to ensure that your hoses don’t burst.  It is also recommended that you use the aluminum dryer vent connections.

EMERGENCY NUMBERS
Even though you have given emergency phone numbers to the Management Company it is highly recommended that you post your cell or work numbers and emergency numbers on the inside of the door to your utility closet outside in your hall.  This can help neighbors react to possible emergencies more quickly than waiting to contact the Management Company for emergency numbers, especially after hours.

Residents must register their cars with the Management Company.  This may have been done at closing, but you must also register any new cars – cars of residents require a sticker.

PARKING ON SNOW DAYS

SMOKE/CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS
Smoke/Carbon Monoxide alarm(s) are hard wired and work automatically.  However there is a 9Volt battery in the alarm that will need to be replaced regularly. This alarm serves as a backup when the power goes out.  If your battery is low, the alarm will continuously announce “Low Battery” during a power outage.  Since there will be no light (especially at night), it would be very difficult to change the battery at that time.  To prevent this from happening, it is recommended the battery be changed each time you change your clocks (twice a year).  To change the 9V battery, unscrew the alarm from the ceiling.  There are wires that go from the ceiling to the alarm.  These unsnap at the alarm.  Open the door which holds the battery.

The smoke/carbon monoxide alarm has a life of 5-7 years, then it must be replaced.  You will know this when you hear the chirp that indicates you need to replace the batteries.  When you replace the battery – it continues to chirp.  You need to then replace the unit.  You can get a replacement from Home Depot: Kiddie Direct Wire Interconnectable Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Talking Alarm, Model # KN-COSM-IB, for approximately $50.  You may be able to order it on line for less – try Amazon.com.  If you need help installing the unit or changing the battery contact your Building Captain for assistance.

To keep your Smoke/CO Alarm in good working order, the following steps are recommended:
Verify the unit’s alarm and LED lights operation by pushing the test/reset button once a week.
Remove the unit from mounting bracket and vacuum the alarm cover and vents with a soft brush attachment.  Reinstall immediately after cleaning and then test using the test/reset button.
Never use detergents or other solvents to clean the unit.
Avoid spraying air fresheners, hair spray, or other aerosols near the Smoke/CO Alarm.

Do not paint the unit.  Paint will seal the vents and interfere with the sensor’s ability to detect smoke and CO.  Never attempt to disassemble the unit or clean inside.

HOME OWNER TIPS

Note:  Be sure to review and follow the instructions for the first two items for the safety of yourself and your neighbors.
SECONDARY DRYER LINT TRAP
Above your dryer and below the exhaust booster, you will find a grey metal box. This is the secondary dryer lint trap.  The exhaust booster should activate whenever your dryer is running (you can hear it running when the dryer heats up) and the secondary dryer lint trap must be cleaned on a routine basis to prevent the possibility of a fire.  To clean the unit, open the door, remove the screen, discard any lint and wash the screen before returning it to the unit.   There are currently 2 types of lint traps being used.  You can change or reposition your lint trap to make it easier to use.
 
If you need a replacement for the Fantech type of lint trap, contact the Management Company, Arthur Edwards.
WASHING MACHINE HOOKUPS
It is required that you use the leak resistant metal encased connection hoses (without the shut off valve) to ensure that your hoses don’t burst.  It is also recommended that you use the aluminum dryer vent connections.

EMERGENCY NUMBERS
Even though you have given emergency phone numbers to the Management Company it is highly recommended that you post your cell or work numbers and emergency numbers on the inside of the door to your utility closet outside in your hall.  This can help neighbors react to possible emergencies more quickly than waiting to contact the Management Company for emergency numbers, especially after hours.

GARAGE DOOR OPENERS
Programmed garage door openers are available at Arthur Edwards, Inc., (201)722-9600. 

GARAGE PARKING
Every unit owners is assigned one parking space in the garage.  There will be parking spots designated as ‘Open’ during the winter, allowing extra cars to be parked in the garage (especially for snow days).  These open spots are first come, first serve and may be used for a maximum of 72 hours and then moved to allow others to also use it.  Not for long term parking.  This is only for the use of residents.

Residents must register their cars with the Management Company.  This may have been done at closing, but you must also register any new cars – cars of residents require a sticker.

PARKING ON SNOW DAYS
If it is expected to snow overnight or during the day, you are requested to park all cars in the garage.  There are signs indicating open parking for a second car.  This is to facilitate plowing.  If you need to park in front, park in a spot closest to the road and in a corner.  



CABLE INFORMATION
A portion of your cable bill is included in your monthly fee.  There is an item on your payment coupon for your Maintenance Fees and one for Cable.  This cable fee is for Cablevision’s package of Optimum Value TV, Optimum Internet, one Converter Box & Remote and Sports Programming.  Any additional packages or features you wish to have you can order from Cablevision and be billed separately.   


CLUBHOUSE SECURITY CARDS

Only regular trash should be put down the middle, larger chute, found in the Trash Room of each floor, by the elevator.  This trash MUST be in 13 gallon plastic bags and have sufficient weight (ex: not a bag full of peanuts or holiday wrapping paper) to fall down the chute without getting caught.  The only exception is when the compactor is not working – then you MUST take it to the dumpster.  Notices will be posted.  This helps us keep our building free of various pests.

If you are having any work done by contractors, make sure they do not put anything down the chutes. They should take away their garbage, and dispose of it at their cost.  Do not let them put anything down the chute!
The trash haulers will pick up larger items, within limits, such as lamps, small chairs, tables, etc. on Thursdays when notified.  Please call the management company to arrange pickup and hold onto these items until the day before pickup and then place them in the garage by the garage doors.

SMOKE/CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS
Smoke/Carbon Monoxide alarm(s) are hard wired and work automatically.  However there is a 9Volt battery in the alarm that will need to be replaced regularly. This alarm serves as a backup when the power goes out.  If your battery is low, the alarm will continuously announce “Low Battery” during a power outage.  Since there will be no light (especially at night), it would be very difficult to change the battery at that time.  To prevent this from happening, it is recommended the battery be changed each time you change your clocks (twice a year).  To change the 9V battery, unscrew the alarm from the ceiling.  There are wires that go from the ceiling to the alarm.  These unsnap at the alarm.  Open the door which holds the battery.

The smoke/carbon monoxide alarm has a life of 5-7 years, then it must be replaced.  You will know this when you hear the chirp that indicates you need to replace the batteries.  When you replace the battery – it continues to chirp.  You need to then replace the unit.  You can get a replacement from Home Depot: Kiddie Direct Wire Interconnectable Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Talking Alarm, Model # KN-COSM-IB, for approximately $50.  You may be able to order it on line for less – try Amazon.com.  If you need help installing the unit or changing the battery contact your Building Captain for assistance.

To keep your Smoke/CO Alarm in good working order, the following steps are recommended:
Verify the unit’s alarm and LED lights operation by pushing the test/reset button once a week.
Remove the unit from mounting bracket and vacuum the alarm cover and vents with a soft brush attachment.  Reinstall immediately after cleaning and then test using the test/reset button.
Never use detergents or other solvents to clean the unit.
Avoid spraying air fresheners, hair spray, or other aerosols near the Smoke/CO Alarm.

Do not paint the unit.  Paint will seal the vents and interfere with the sensor’s ability to detect smoke and CO.  Never attempt to disassemble the unit or clean inside.  

OWNER REPAIR WORK TO BE DONE WITHIN COMMON PROPERTY AREAS
Occasionally individual Homeowners will have repairs that have to be done for their property within common property areas, like attics, roofs or garages.  When such work has to be done, we require you to proceed as follows:
Homeowners should notify the management company of approximate date of such work and details about what will be done.  This requires approval by the Board.
The homeowners should also provide proof of liability insurance coverage by the contractor doing the work, with Horizons at Mount Arlington listed.

Work done in common areas can impact residents of the building if a problem is caused by a contractor working for an individual resident.  See form at the end of this booklet.
