Maintenance Information

AFTER HOURS Maintenance and Emergency Information

Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please try to report maintenance issues during our regular business hours as our staff and outside vendors are more readily available to solve any maintenance issues that come up during that time. If there is an after-hours non-emergency maintenance issue, please refer to the following protocol for tips, tricks, and information that can help. If at any time you feel like you need assistance from our staff, please call the after-hours emergency number at 530-979-4078. Thank you!

Detectors in Your Unit: Your unit contains both smoke detectors and combination alarms, which detect smoke and Carbon Monoxide. Keep in mind that a fire is not the only source of danger your alarms can detect. See below for more information regarding Carbon Monoxide and the link to Pacific Gas and Electric’s website.

In case of FIRE:

  1. Notify all roommates to leave.
  2. Use on site fire extinguishers (located outside of unit) if you feel safe enough to do so.
  3. Exit the building.
  4. Call 911 first. Then call the leasing office if this occurs during business hours. If it is after hours, call the after-hours emergency phone instead at 530-979-4078.

Reminder: Smoke detectors do go off even when there is not a fire. For example, cooking can sometimes create smoke that triggers alarms. In this case, fanning the alarm with a towel often helps clear the air and the alarm will stop beeping. Please identify the source of the alarm or smoke to verify if there is any danger before calling 911. Similarly, identify the source of an alarm to ensure you are safe before silencing an alarm.

Kitchen Safety:

  • If a pan is on fire, smother the flames with a metal lid NOT glass (glass lids would shatter). Or use baking soda to put out a grease fire. Never use water to put out a grease fire.
  • If you have a fire in your microwave oven, turn it off immediately. This will stop the fan so it won’t feed oxygen to the flames. Then simply wait until the fire suffocates. Do NOT open the door unless you are sure the fire is out.


  • Stock up on baking soda just in case a grease fire occurs.
  • Use microwave safe dishes in the microwave.
  • Never leave what you are cooking unattended and NEVER leave the unit while the stove or oven is on. Pay attention to cook times and whether an appliance is on.

If you smell GAS:

1. Get out of the building immediately.

2. Call 911.

3. Call Pacific Gas and Electric at 1-800-743-5000.

4. Then call the office if this occurs during business hours. Otherwise, call the after-hours number at 530-979-4078.

  • If you detect a gas leak or your alarm is going off, exit the building immediately. Do not use anything that could be a source of ignition, INCLUDING CELL PHONES and flashlights. Do not turn any light or electric switches on or off.
  • According to Pacific Gas and Electric’s website, gas has a “distinctive, sulfur-like, rotten egg odor” so you can detect small amounts. Also, pay attention to “hissing, whistling or roaring sounds coming from underground or from a gas appliance.”
  • Pacific Gas and Electric advises you not to store flammable materials, such as mops, brooms, laundry and newspapers, near your water heater, oven, stove range or any gas appliance.

Please follow the link for more information regarding gas safety tips and information.


Water Heater Leak Detector

    • When the Leak Alert detector comes into contact with water, a loud 85dB alarm sounds for up to 72 hours. The alarm is as loud as your standard smoke detector. Please call the office or emergency phone after hours if this leak detector is sounding because water damage can be a serious matter!
    • In the event of a low battery, the leak detector will chirp (a short beep every five seconds). We will want to replace it with a brand new 9V battery.
      • Please call the emergency line at 530-979-4078 so we can replace the battery with a new 9V battery.


Is the power out in one area of your unit, but is still working in another? You may have tripped a breaker.


      • Locate your breaker box behind one of the bedroom doors.
      • Turn off or unplug equipment that connects to the tripped circuit. (You will be able to tell which breaker is tripped because it will be in a different position than the others).
      • Push switch firmly to the “off” position. Must turn it all the way off.
      • Flip the switch back to the “on” position.
      • View this video for a general demonstration (note: this was not filmed at your apartment complex, but the visuals still apply).

How to Prevent breakers from tripping:
      • Do Not plug in several appliances to a single outlet
      • Do Not use high energy items, like a hairdryer or a portable heater, for an extended timeframe or at the same time.

If your circuit breaker trips repeatedly, this could indicate a problem with the circuit and/or breaker that requires additional maintenance or an electrician. Please call the office to let us know or fill out a maintenance request online through your resident portal.


If the power is out in your entire unit, please contact your electric provider (Pacific Gas and Electric) to check if there is a scheduled outage occurring or if there are multiple outages in your area. Also, double check to ensure you paid your bill.

If a Power Outage Occurs:

  • Turn off heat producing appliances (especially stove tops and ovens) that were on when the power outage occurred. This will eliminate a fire hazard when the power comes back.
  • Make sure food stays cold by keeping your refrigerator and freezer doors closed. You can place ice in plastic containers and keep it inside the refrigerator.


Call the emergency line at  530-979-4078 for any actively leaking water issues.

  • Please note: if there is a small leak (or water dripping down a drain), maintenance can attend to the repair on the next business day IF the dripping can be contained to a bucket. If there is any confusion on the severity of a leak, please call the emergency line and a staff member will talk you through it.
  • Call immediately if there is a large amount of water leaking in any area of your unit.
  • If a sink or toilet is overflowing, you are able to turn the water off by locating the overflow knob behind the toilet, or below the sink. Once located, turn the knob all the way to the right to shut off the water.

Clogged Sink or Toilet

A backed up toilet or sink, as long as it is not actively leaking, usually will need to wait until the next business day for repair if there is a second one available for use in the unit.

Please call the office to leave a voicemail or submit a maintenance request online and the manager will contact you the next business day about the repair. Post a sign to relay to any roommates that may not be around to avoid use of the clogged sink or toilet.

Clogged toilets can be embarrassing! If you would like to take care of this issue yourself, please refer to this plunging video for a visual guide.

Do not flush facial tissue (Kleenex), paper towels, any wipes, feminine hygiene products, contraceptives, toilet bowl scrub pads, Swiffer pads, cu tips, cotton balls, dental floss, cat litter, coffee grounds, egg shells, fats, oils, greases, hair, medicines or any pharmaceuticals, plastic, diapers or any other non-organic material.


Please call to inform us if there are any sewage problems immediately.


Appliance repairs generally will need to wait for business hours so that technicians are available.

Please fill out a maintenance request or call the office phone to leave a message so the problem can be addressed on the next business day. Any delays in reporting issues to the manager may delay the repairs, depending on if a part needs to be ordered or if outside technicians need to be scheduled. Being proactive about reporting issues may speed up the repair process! If there are any questions as to whether an appliance repair is an emergency, please call the after-hours emergency phone at 530-979-4078.


If your heating or air conditioning system stops working or needs to be repaired, contact the office immediately. If this occurs outside of regular business hours during the week, submit a maintenance request or leave a voicemail with the office. Management will contact you the following morning to coordinate an appointment with a technician. If your heater or air conditioner goes out over a weekend when office staff is unavailable, please contact the after-hours emergency phone at 530-979-4078

Tips to Dealing with Extreme Hot and Cold Weather

Please test your heater or air conditioner before months of extreme heat or cold before (so test systems in April or early May and late September or October). If you wait until the first heat wave or until cold weather kicks in, vendors are often booked and repairs can be delayed. Being proactive may save you time and frustration!

Pacific Gas and Electric recommends that you keep your air conditioner set at 78 degrees or higher when it is more than 100 degrees outside. If you are away for more than a few hours, set it to 85 degrees. In the winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees. According to Pacific Gas and Electric, “three to five percent more energy is used for each degree you set your furnace above 68 F,” which will increase your bill. Similarly, if you turn it down to 56 degrees when you are away (for an 8 hour period), you can “save 5 to 15 percent a year on your heating bill.” Using these guidelines saves energy as well as puts less strain on your heater and air conditioner.

Ways to Keep your Unit Cool during the Summer

  • The best timing for opening windows to cool off your unit is in the evening or early in the morning when temperatures are lower. However, CLOSE them during the day as temperatures begin to rise or hot air will be trapped in your unit and will increase the time it takes for the air conditioner’s cooling to take effect.
  • This region benefits from the Delta Breeze—a wind that comes from the southwest off the Sacramento River. This wind brings the cooler, more humid air from the Pacific Ocean generally during the late Spring and early summer months. Take advantage of any cool air that Nature provides!
  • We recommend having a fan to circulate cool air throughout your unit
  • Cook meals that require less use of the stove and oven to keep temperatures cool in your unit.
  • Keep Blinds and Curtains closed.
  • Turn off and unplug all electronics not in use.
