Important Reminders for Your Chapter House

The sudden closure of many of our properties present exposures that may be easily overlooked. Make sure that you have taken the following proactive steps for closed facilities:

  • Secure external doors and windows and activate your building security system. If you do not have a security system, schedule drive-bys of the facility.
  • Maintain building heating systems to prevent water pipes from freezing or damage to sensitive equipment. Also maintain electrical power if it supports critical equipment.
  • Keep the automatic fire protection systems on and in service.
  • Notify the campus police department that the property will be vacant and provide emergency notification phone numbers to the police.
  • Mold is increasingly a concern, especially with the facilities being unoccupied for so much longer than usual. Make sure that someone is regularly inspecting the building for water and other damage. Maintain proper climate control to minimize mold from occurring.
