Residential Property Crime Up Over Last Two Weeks

December 7, 2015

We have been advised by Security Officials that over the past two weeks there has been a marked increase in residential crime.

The Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage Communities have experienced the greatest impact with burglaries, attempted burglaries, vehicle break-ins, and vehicle thefts in both gated and non-gated areas. Please make sure that the doors, garage doors and windows in your home are secured and that if you have an alarm it is set when you are not in residence.

In addition, be sure to lock your vehicle if left in the driveway. Do not leave keys or valuables in plain sight.

Be vigilant and report anything unusual to authorities.

Now Is a Good Time To Replace Furnace Filters

If you have not changed your furnace filters, now is a good time to call us to do so. The chill of the deserts version of winter is here. Temperatures in the morning and evening may require heating your home.

As a reminder, the Premier Residential Service’s offices will be closed on Friday, December 25 and Friday, January 1.

Call the housekeeping office if you will need help serving or cleaning up from holiday festivities.

Timely Service Suggestions for December

We are pleased to offer the following service suggestions for your consideration. Please call our office to schedule these services.

  • Weather Strip Replacement. Heat or cooling loss through openings and cracks can be costly. Premier Residential Services can replace or install energy saving weather stripping, as well as caulk around doors and windows. In addition, the weather stripping on garage and golf cart doors can be replaced. These small steps can not only save on energy consumption but also cut down on the dust and sand that seems to always be present.
  • Running Toilets & Leaky Faucets and Showerheads. It has been noted that a number of clients have had issues with their toilets, faucets and shower heads. Premier Residential Services can replace the float valves and flappers to stop the toilets from running and change cartridges to stop drips and leaks. At the same time the feed lines can be replaced with braided wire hose to mitigate the possibility of a future leak problem.
  • Grout Replacement & Drain Cleanout. If the showers, tubs, or sinks in your home have developed cracks or need the grout replaced in and around the tiles, Premier Residential Services can help. If you notice that the water is draining too slowly from sinks, tubs or showers the drains should be cleaned out. In addition, if any of the shower pans might have developed a leak, these too can be replaced.

The management and staff of Premier Residential Services would like to extend to you our warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and healthy New Year.
