Tips and Tricks for Submitting a Maintenance Request

Let Us Help You Fix It!

JSM is very proud of our prompt and courteous maintenance staff. If you have an issue with your apartment, you are in good hands. Submitting a maintenance request is quick and easy. Here are some tips and tricks for when you have to submit a maintenance request. 

Try to Fix Smaller Things on Your Own

Don’t submit a maintenance request unless it is absolutely necessary. Try to fix things less serious things on your own. Things like plunging your toilets, resetting your circuit breakers, and resetting your garbage disposal are things that you don’t need to request maintenance to come and do for you.

Be as Specific as Possible
