Helpful Power Outage Tips

Helpful Tips For Power Outages

Recently at 2:30am with a loud KABOOM bip - bop - zip the power was out... Of course we both jumped, scared us out of a deep sleep. My husband reaches over and grabs his handy dandy miniature flash light and with one click there was light. Half asleep trying to figure out what was going on, we agreed it was a electric transformer that blew. I go to get the phone and remember we have no power, the cordless phone is not going to work. Start trying to remember where the cell phone is, found the phone number and called the power company, while lighting candles. It was then that I started to reminisce about hurricane Gene and being without power for twelve days. We learned allot about being without power and some simple things that make a huge difference.

1. Keep a power outage kit readily available that containing batteries, flashlights, candles, candle holders, manual can opener and a corded phone.
 
2. Keep a miniature flashlight in your night stand in case the power goes out in the middle of the night
 
3. Power Inverter power inverters are great keep them charged all the time. In a power outage they contain 2 plugs that will run a small appliance, small fan, even a Nebulizer for asthmatics. They also contain a light, jumper cables & an air pump.
 
4. A mirror placed behind a candle doubles the amount of light it gives off.
 
5. Generators are a wonderful idea for a back up plan be careful only use a generator outside. When severe storms knock out power for a length of time there is nothing like having a generator to run your refrigerator, watch TV, run a fan, crock pot or coffee maker.
 
6. Propane or charcoal grill either of these are a good idea for cooking.

Classic 1 Realty & Property Management of Orlando Florida Great Easy Kitchen Cleaning Tips

Classic 1 Realty & Property Management of Orlando Florida
Great Easy Kitchen Cleaning Tips!
Hate cleaning the microwave with all that goo? Fill a coffee cup with water and put it in the microwave for 5 minutes (be careful removing the cup it's hot!) Take a damp sponge and wipe out the microwave. Everything comes out easy!
Wiping off the stove top with all that stuck on food. Spray top of the stove down with cleaner. Let it soak for 5 minutes come back with a warm wet cloth and wipe down. For persistent messes re-spray and let soak again.
Kitchen counter tops spray on cleaner soak all of the counter tops down then go back and wipe them off. Having company later? After cleaning, place kitchen towels on the counter, remove right before company arrives. Towel covers are especially great for easy cooking clean up. Mr. Clean Eraser is great for those difficult to remove stains.
Stove back splash with sauce splash residue? Dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol, wipes right off.
Smelly garbage disposal? A few ice cubes, lemon slices and salt put them down the garbage disposal with running water.

Classic 1 Realty and Property Management of Orlando Featured Client Reference

Classic 1 Realty and Property Management of Orlando Florida
Featured Client Reference
Since the year 2000, Classic 1 Realty has been the management company for all 10 (ten) of my rental properties.
Without question, they are the most attentive, active and professional management company I could wish to have.
Diana Blake has been my main point of contact, and through hurricanes, leaking roofs; dealing with insurance agents, to dealing with yard contractors, Classic 1 Realty has taken the responsibility head on.
They are excellent with finding the right tenants, in a short space of time.
I cannot remember a time where any of my properties were without tenants for any longer than it to clean, paint, or attend to whatever was needed.
I recommend Classic 1 Realty 100%; they are the
 perfect management company.
Sincerely, Bill
 
Thank you Bill! We are honored that you have given us the pleasure of serving your property management needs all these years Thank you again!
