A well-kept home

There are many things you can do yourself in your home. Below are some practical advices. There is also listed what you always do yourself, like changing light bulb etc. If you are uncertain you can always ask your caretaker.

Cleaning the kitchen

Clean the stove and oven - Clean the stove and oven regularly. Remember to clean up behind the stove, it can be pulled out so you can access to vaccum or sweep.

Screw fittings - If the fittings on kitchen cabinets, kitchen drawers and closets feel loose fix it yourself by simply tightening the screws on the inside with a screwdriver.

Fridge and freezer - Place the instructions for the appliances in a place where you can find it easily. They contain good advices on maintenance and troubleshooting. Read the instructions when you move in and leave them to the next tenant when you move out. Defrost your fridge and freezer regularly if the are not self-defrosting. Let all the ice melt by itself - do not use any sharp tools to move it. Collect the melt water in a bucket or tub.

Clean the kitchen fan - Clean the grease filter in the fan at least once a month. Wash it in warm water with a mild detergent or use the dishwater. Do not open the kitchen window while cooking, the fan is not working properly then and all cooking fumes will spread in the apartment. Open a window in another room and the fan will work properly.

The rest of the apartment

Check and clean valves
The valves must be kept clean. Use a regular narrow paint brush or radiator brush for cleaning. Exhaust valves are located at the ceiling in the kitchen and bathroom. Intake valves are positioned at the ceiling or behind radiators. Intake valves are fixed and can not be changed, because then the ventilation system will not function properly.

You can loosen the valves in two ways:

  • By turning them counter-clockwise and pull them out
  • By pulling them straight out

Old valves may be difficult to loosen up. Try instead to pick up the dust with a wire. Then you can vacuum and wipe the valve as much as possible.

Replacing light bulbs and fluorescent tubes - light bulbs and fluorescent tubes are consumables that you, as a tenant, are replacing. Broken fluorescent are changed by turning the tube a quarter turn. Remember to also change the starter when changing lamps. Take the lamp and starter to the store, so you're sure to get new ones that fit.

In addition, the store collects the old lamps and tubes.

Changing plugs and other electrical installations - you change plugs and fuses yourself. First, find the blown fuse. Then unscrew the faulty plug and replace it with a new one.You see that a fuse has broken when the small, round, colored pin is detached. Always replace a new fuse with one of the same color marker as the broken one. The plug must first be inserted in the plug cap and then screwed into the center. In some apartments there is fuse box without replaceable fuses. There are instead black switches, so-called circuit breakers, which should always be in the raised position.

Always hire a licensed electrician for electrical installations. Home insurance does not apply if a fire starts because of an improper installation made by the intenant. You will have to change light bulbs and fluorescent lamps, sockets,switches and connect and replace light fixtures in dry areas. Electrical equipment used outdoors, such as balcony lighting, must be approved for outdoor use. Possible infrared must be installed with a switch.

Install washing or washing machine - ensure that dishwashers and washing machines are on the waterproof surface. The machines must be connected to grounded outlet. All connections of electricity, water and sewage must be done by a specialist.

Clear the sink and water lock - on most kitchen sinks, there is a screw on the strainer. By unscrewing the strainer, you can access to remove items that ended up there. Take the opportunity to scrub clean with a brush. If a water lock has been taken apart for cleaning, be very careful to check how tightit is when assembled. Rinse thoroughly with water and check that it is quite tight in all the threads. It is very important that it is tight to the underside of the sink!

Clear the drain - if the drain is clogged, attempt to unload the waste that is clogged. If it doesn’t help, you must immediately notify the error to your caretaker. Remove, at regular intervals, hair and other waste from the bottom valve in the tub and sinks to prevent drain clogs. Never use chemicals such as bleach to clean the sewer!

Clean the floor drain - there is a drain in the floor in the bathroom that should be cleaned regularly to avoid clogs and bad odors.

Clean the floor drain as follows:
Remove the cover to the drain. Sometimes the cover is attached with screws that need to be unscrewed.
Remove hair and other things that’s clogged the drain. If necessary, gently remove things that’s blocking with a wire.
Rinse well with hand shower and dry off.
Attach the cover again.

If the toilet runs - if the toilet is running, try to pull or push the button, a couple of times. If it continues to flow, you should report the fault to the caretaker, to prevent many gallons of water flowing away unnecessarily.

Consideration and thoughtfulness

A security of living in apartment buildings is that you have people around you. You will hear sounds from others, it is movement in the area.

You are entitled to peace and quiet
People have different point of views. Some are disturbed by things that others do not care about. Some people are night people, others start the day at early hours. To ensure that all tenants co-op together and rub along, it is required to respect each other - both under the same roof and in the common areas. If you feel disturbed, firstly get in contact with your annoying neighbor directly. If your neighbor still does not cease to bother you, contact your caretakers.

Examples of disorders include:

  • Someone is playing music at high volume.
  • A dog barks loud and consistently.
  • Someone showers or taps water at night.
  • Someone drills, nails or pounding late at night.
  • Someone using the washing machine at night.

Of course, you and your family will be able to move around normaly in the apartment without being afraid to be regarded as disturbing. At night, you should take extra care so that the neighbors are not disturbed.

A simple rule of thumb might be that nothing should be heard to the neighbors. This applies 24/7, in particular from 10pm to 8am, because everybody has to have a chance of a good nights sleep.

Satellite dish
If you want to put up a satellite dish, you must first contact the caretaker, to get permission and instructions.

Common areas - shared responsibility
There are a lot of common areas in a residential area.

Why common rules makes sence:

  • Prohibition of smoking in all common areas, ie, stairwells, elevators, laundry room, attic, cellar, bicycle storage and so on.
  • Household waste is sorted at source, packaged well and discarded according to the instructions provided. Bulky waste must be taken to recycling centers.

Laundry Room
The laundry room is an important place for all. Therefore, try to keep it clean and tidy there. Report immediately to the caretaker if something does not work, respecting the times that are booked by others, and do not use the laundry room outside the booked time.

  • Wipe the floors, machines and desks when you are finished.
  • Follow the maintenance instructions that apply to machines, dryers and other equipment.
  • Always use a laundry bag if you wash a bra with jumper. A common reason for the machines to be out of order is due to bra straps are loose and gets stuck in the machine.

Safe and secure

A good contact with the neighbors often means both greater satisfaction and greater sense of security. Being able to ask their neighbors to keep an eye on the apartment when getting away means a lot to most people.

A home where you feel safe and secure
It is a right to feel safe and secure in both housing and residential area. But the responsibility for security is shared. The property owner ensure that for instance locks and lights works - outdoors and even in your apartment, regarding some of the permanent equipment. You as a tenant must follow the rules that apply to security and otherwise be generally cautious about the home.

Home insurance offers good protection
Sometimes the accidents happen, and that is when you need to have a good protection for your property. The housing company will only cover damage to the building itself - not your personal belongings. Therefore, a home insurance policy provides good protection for you and your home. However, you must provide a portion of the cost of an injury - the so-called excess. Home insurance usually applies if you get robbed, but the requirement is that you have looked after your belongings properly. It is therefore important that you keep the home firmly locked and do not store theft-prone property in the basement, the attic or in the car.

Fire safety
A smoke detector is a cheap home insurance. There are smoke detectors in the apartment when you move in. It belongs to the property owner and may not be included when you move out. If there is no smoke detectors in the apartment when you move in, please contact the caretaker so that you get a smoke alarm installed. About a month before the battery ends, the smoke alarms emit short beeps. The smoke alarm operates normally during this time, but replace the battery as soon as possible.

How to handle a smoke detector:
Try it regularly, preferably once a month.
Clean it regularly with a damp cloth or by vacuuming it.
Replace batteries as soon as needed.

Hire expertise in electrical installations
Always hire a licensed electrician for electrical installations. The insurance company will not pay compensation if a fire starts because of a faulty electrical installation performed by a person other than a licensed electrician. Some you can do yourself, but it requires you to have the necessary skills.

Free spaces in the stairwell and entrance
When accidents occur or if someone gets sick, the emergency personnel and paramedics must be able to arrive quickly.Therefore, strollers, skis, bicycles or toys placed in designated places or in the apartment.

Keep track of your keys
When moving in, you get a number of keys leading to; the apartment, the port, and the laundry room. The property owner has a master key that fits into the apartment. If we need access to your apartment, you first have to accept that the master key is used. Your keys are valuable items that may not fall into the wrong hands. It is therefore important that you return all keys when you move. All keys must be returned, even the copies that you may have done yourself as well as keys to the heater, garage, bicycle room, storage room or laundry room. If you lose a key you have to pay the key cost and possibly the cost of new lock. Spare keys, are on your own expense.

Get to know your neighbors
A good contact with the neighbors often means both greater satisfaction and greater sense of security. Being able to ask your neighbors to keep an eye on the apartment when going away means a lot to most people. 


 Fireproof home

Have a spray bottle of water handy when you have candles lit for emergencies before the fire has taken hold. Never place candles, flowers or similar items on television, stereo or video.
  • If an accident occurs, extinguish with water or fire extinguishers
  • Always unplug immediately after use, for example iron, coffeemaker or toaster
