We recently changed to a new insurance company, MiddleOak, who conducted a thorough inspection of the property and made a few mandatory loss control requests that will improve Cedar West COA’s chances for loss prevention.
There are 2 mandatory items that need to be taken care of in the next 30 days.
- Water heaters must be protected by drain pans with drains or audible alarms.
- Existing rubber hoses on washing machines can break resulting in water damage. Steel braided, reinforced hoses are more durable and should be used in place of standard rubber hoses.
Please ensure that you make the required changes to your unit by the end of October to ensure that the Association will not lose its insurance coverage. Regarding item #1 above, you can get an audible alarm for the water heater at Walmart for $10. No setup required, it just needs a 9V battery and should be placed on the floor by the water heater. (Zircon Leak Alert Electronic Water Detector). Regarding item #2 above, you can purchase a pair of steel braided hoses for $20 at Home Depot.
Please see Sections 10.6 and Article 12 of the Rules and Regulations of the Association for further information on this request.
If you have any questions, please contact me directly during regular business hours by phone at 425-949-4554 or by e-mail at Tricia@impactpropertymgmt.com. Thank you for helping maintain the Association standards.
