Health and Safety Inspections

March 8th from 7pm to 8:30pm

How does it work?

1st: The RA will notify you 48 hours in advance - advising you when they will conduct the Health and Safety Inspection. Make sure to clean your vanity, bathroom, and shower and kitchen area and common area.
2nd: The RA will return as posted to inspect your suite. You do not have to be home, but if you can that is a bonus. Here is how it works:
  • The RAs will key into your suit
  • They will conduct the inspection
  • Leave a carbon copy stating if you passed it or not
3rd: You will then be given one more chance to clean failed items. The RA will return in 48 hours so you have time to clean the items.However, when the RA returns, they ARE NOT inspecting only the items you failed the first time – they are doing another thorough inspection.
4th: If you fail the second time – We will contact our professional cleaning staff so they come in and clean at your expense.
