Pet-friendly JAMCO Properties

Pets are more than OK, they’re family at JAMCO Properties, Inc.

The dog days of summer are finally over for Atlanta apartments and the gorgeous days of autumn lie ahead for metro Atlanta apartment dwellers and their pets. As fall moves into our community grab your pumpkin spice latte, settle onto your sun-drenched patio or balcony and check out these pet safety tips for cooler weather.

This time of year it is a good idea to begin preparing your vehicle for colder temperatures by replacing engine coolant. Both dogs and cats are attracted to the sweet taste of antifreeze which is extremely poisonous to our four-legged friends. Any spilled coolant should be thoroughly cleaned up immediately. Residents in Atlanta apartments can reduce the risk of consumption by closely monitoring pets while outdoors. Also be aware of poisons used indoors for pest control as those critters are looking for a comfortable apartment too!

Plants and mushrooms pose another threat to pets in autumn. All mushrooms are toxic to dogs. When you take Rover for a walk around Atlanta apartments be mindful that your pup doesn’t ingest any of these. Like dogs, cat are curious about new houseplants brought into their familiar indoor environment. Common holiday plants like holly, poinsettia, chrysanthemum and mistletoe may cause allergies or serious illness for pets. It’s best to keep these out of reach of small children also.

Holiday Diet Do’s for Atlanta Renters

This time of year, the temptation to splurge from your healthy eating habits will come from joyous roommates, friends and especially mom’s kitchen! Avoid putting on winter weight and still celebrate the holiday season in your Atlanta apartments. Don’t ignore party invitations; keep these 3 tips in mind instead.

Be home for the holidays at Mountain Lake Apartments

First maintain your regular routine by eating regular meals. Office potlucks and family feasts might tempt you to skip breakfast, lunch or dinner but that spells a recipe for diet disaster. Skipping meals is a leading cause for unhealthy snacking for many Atlanta renters. Enjoy your favorite holiday meals in moderation instead of skipping a meal to make up the calories.

Next keep a written record of all the food you prepare in your apartment or eat at parties. Remember to include any beverages you drink! Writing a food journal and tracking your food intake can prevent diet slips and help residents know how much time they should spend in their apartment community’s fitness center.

Finally Atlanta apartment renters can delete restaurants and take-out from their lunch menus. By packing a healthy lunch each day, residents save on the waist and the wallet too!

JAMCO Properties, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia wishes you a healthy holiday season and a happy new year!

Winter Preparedness in Atlanta, Georgia Apartments

To help Georgia’s apartment residents prepare, plan and stay informed about winter, Ready Georgia recommends five winter safety tips for resident in Atlanta apartments (plus a few bonus words of wisdom):

1. When the weather outside is frightful, make sure to stay weather-aware and listen to the latest alerts concerning winter weather. Familiarize yourself with the terms that are used to identify winter weather.

2. Don’t be a Grinch when it comes to purchasing and compiling the appropriate emergency supplies. Pack a ready kit for your Atlanta apartment and vehicle. Include adequate clothing and blankets in your kit to keep you warm.

3. If you plan to go dashing through the snow, drive your sleigh safely. Keep an extra ready kit in the trunk of your car. In addition to the basic essentials, consider adding an ice scraper, extra blanket, sand for traction and jumper cables. Fully winterize your vehicle and keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Avoid driving when roads are icy. Stay cozy in your Atlanta apartments!

4. Keep warm on frosty days by weather-proofing your apartment home. Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to un-insulated pipes under sinks and appliances near your apartment’s exterior walls. Allow faucets to drip during cold weather to prevent freezing.

5. Regardless of the chill, never use a stove or oven to heat your Atlanta rental. Prepare safe alternative sources of heat.  Never bring portable generators, camp stoves or grills into Atlanta townhouses and apartments; they should be kept outside and at least 20 feet away from windows, doors and vents.

6. And finally…no matter how much someone double dog dares you, never stick your tongue to a flagpole when it’s cold out.
