There is a laundry on each floor.  By using the electronic booking board located at the laundry room you can book the laundry. You can also book through the internet. The laundry is free of charge.

Common Kitchen
There are 4 common kitchens in the building and for each kitchen there is a "kitchen responsible". You can find their contact information on the kitchen door and contact them if you want to lend a kitchen key. Common kitchens are closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All flats have their own storeroom which is located on the attic.
Practical information regarding the electricity, water and fire detector 

The electricity central is furnished with an earth fault breaker marked JFB. If electricity goes away then check the fuses in the electric box and turn them back on. Check first if there is any faulty electric equipment that might have caused the shut down and unplug it. You do not have to sign a separate contract for the electiricity or water.

Light bulbs, fluorescent lamps and glow starters are consumable items and tenants should buy and change them themselves. Make a fault report if the lamps won't start working with the new light bulbs.

Tap water is drinkable.

Tenant is responsible for cleaning the drainage in the kitchen and bathroom. You can find videos with instructions here (turn on English subtitles):
Instruction for cleaning the drain pipe under the sink.
Instruction for cleaning the shower drain.

If the water does not go down well after cleaning, please make a fault report on My Pages.

There are 2 types of fire alarms in the apartments. Some are operating by electricity, others by a battery. The fire alarm will start beeping every 45 seconds when the battery is low. Make a fault report on My Pages if that happens. Check the fire alarm regularly to make sure that it works.
