Shh! Sound Abatement
Hush! Be quiet! Zip it! Shut it! Put a lid on it! Is that a herd of elephants? (This could be said in my own home or any of your residents’ homes on any given day)
My beloved noisemakers!
⚡️WHACK! WHACK! WHACK! ⚡️The sound of a broomstick as it hits the ceiling. No surprise that noise is the 3rd most frequent complaint in multifamily buildings. 20% of residents say they would move if they have noisy neighbors. That can add up to a lot of revenue lost to turnovers. No bueno!
(Sidenote: that’s a major reason why we moved out of our last place, noisy neighbors. I may or may not have yelled “QUIET!!!” around midnight at 9 months preggo 😤 to my over-served-outdoor-karaoke-singing neighbors. I digress....)
