Emergency Maintenance

If you have an emergency maintenance request during our normal office hours please contact the office at 814-234-1707.

Emergencies include:

  • Severe water leaks, i.e. floods, toilet overflowing
  • Sewer back ups-If you are experience a sewer back-up you should immediately stop use of all water including dishwasher, shower, toilets, and sinks
  • No Heat- In the event that your heat stops working during normal business hours please contact our office immediately. If your heat stops working after hours please contact emergency maintenance.

During the winter months your thermostat must be kept at a minimum of 55 degrees. This will prevent pipes from freezing and breaking. If a pipe burst due to a thermostat being turned off, you will be held liable for the cost of the repairs. Also, during the winter months, please make sure your bed is pulled away from the heater and the areas around and under the heater are free of trash and debris. This is a fire hazard.
