By booking this property you agree to the residential property loss prevention steps outlined below:

Water Damage:

- If you notice any leaks around sinks, tubs, toilets, and hot water heaters contact us as soon as possible. These issues can lead to costly mold damage and rotten floating.  

Fire Damage: 

- Never overload electrical outlets and extension cords, or place throw rugs over electrical cords. 

- Do not block a baseboard heater (when available) 

- Never leave cooking appliances unattended on or unattended. 

- Prevent potential embers from causing fires by using a Spark Arrestor at active fireplaces.

Property Damage: 

- Keep the fireplace cleaned. Check for cracks, excessive soot, and ensure the chimney is properly topped with a metal cap to keep vermin out.
