Don’t Bring the Noise in Your Philadelphia Apartment

When you make the decision to living in Post Brothers apartments in Philadelphia, it’s important to remember that we live in a community with others and that means we have a responsibility to be respectful to our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum so we do not disturb others.

To keep everyone happy and maintain a good relationship with your neighbors, there are a few easy steps you can take to reduce or eliminate annoying noise.

–  Be kind and respectful.  A little common courtesy makes a big difference.  Keep your music and television at reasonable levels.  A few friends over for a good time is reasonable, a fraternity party on a Sunday night at 2 in the morning is not.  Do your vacuuming before bedtime. Move your noisiest appliances away from walls and put sound-absorbing material underneath before your neighbors complain.

–  Keep a record of excessive noise and disturbances.  If you are disturbed by a noise problem, note the times and the nature of the noise.  Ask the property manager to listen and verify the noise as well. There may be a pattern in the noise that can be adjusted.

–  Visit your neighbor to discuss the situation.  If your neighbor is the source of the noise, try a friendly chat. Sometimes people just don’t realize how their noise is affecting others. People are usually understanding and willing to make accommodations once they realize they’re disturbing others.  And, if your neighbor knocks on your door, listen politely and be willing to made changes to reduce your own noise.

–  Contact the manager. If a polite request doesn’t change your neighbor’s noisiness, it may be time to ask the manager for help.  Have your noise log ready, including attempts to solve the problem yourself.

Reducing noise sounds like a good idea for your luxury Philadelphia apartment.  A quiet, peaceful community is usually a happy community!
