What is the difference between Routine Repairs and Emergencies?

Routine Repairs are problems that can be scheduled, and do not require immediate attention – even though the student would like it taken care of as soon as possible.  Examples of Routine Repairs include a burned-out light bulb, broken or sticking drawers or cabinets, a/c filter changes, moving furniture, broken blinds, and rodents/pests.

Emergency Repairs are identified as anything that requires immediate attention because if it is not remedied, serious injury or damage will result.  Emergency Repairs include broken water or gas pipes, main sewer pipe stoppage, power failure, 1st floor broken windows, any water backing up out of a drain, smoke detector beeping or malfunctioning, any potential fire or shock hazard, and all air conditioner and heating problems.
