Make sure to respect your space and the people around you when using the amenities at your Tallahassee apartment.

When you're on the hunt for your Tallahassee apartment, amenities might be near the top of your list. Whether it's having a 24/7 gym, a pool, a study room, or having a dog park, there are a bunch of different amenities to use and enjoy. However, amenities are not single-use, and you will have to share them with all of the other people who live in your apartment complex. Thus, you should ensure that you are using proper etiquette for those around you. Here are some tips for using your Tallahassee apartment amenities.

Clean Up After Yourself

Although this might seem like the most obvious tip, it still needs to be said. No matter what amenity you're using, a good rule of thumb is that you should always leave it the way you found it. This means picking up any trash from the pool area, wiping down any gym equipment, or picking up after your pet. You should use these amenities as if they are your own and make sure that they are staying in their proper condition. You wouldn't want someone else's sweat all of the treadmill when you go to use it, so make sure the equipment is clean for the next person.

Communicate with Your Office

Even though we want to keep all amenities and community areas at our Tallahassee apartment clean for everyone, we should not be obligated to clean up other people's mess. Thus, it's important to communicate if there is ever a mess left at an amenity or if the amenity is not working correctly. If your office doesn't know, they can't fix it. So, if you notice a bunch of trash around the swimming pool or that the treadmill isn't turning on, don't just leave it – let your Tallahassee apartment office know.

Respect The Rules

The rules of the amenities your apartment company provides are not just suggestions and you should treat them seriously. They are in place to keep you and those around you safe and happy, so you should read the rules and ensure that you are following them. So, if the pool rules say no speakers, don't try and sneak one in. Not only could you be infringing on someone else's fun, but you may get into trouble with your apartment complex, which is no fun. Make sure to ask your Tallahassee apartment for permission for any large gatherings, especially if it's people who are not residents.

Make Sure to Share

Maybe you have a favorite piece of workout equipment in the gym, but it's not okay to refuse to share equipment. The other residents deserve equal access to all amenities that you do. It's okay if you can't use the exact machine, you want every single day. Don't sit in the jacuzzi all day, let someone else enjoy it. If all residents do their part, it'll make living together an easy and harmonious experience. So, make sure that you clean up your space and share it with the other residents at your Tallahassee apartment.
