Maintenance Mania

Nevada State Apartment Association Calls all Maintenance Professionals to Battle for the National Championship!

LAS VEGAS, NV - Ask any property manager and they will tell you — property maintenance technicians are the backbone of the multifamily industry. Day-in and day-out, they keep our residents happy and our properties running smoothly.  Maintenance professionals are essential to the viability and success of the multifamily housing industry.   In recognition of the valuable role they play, the National Apartment Association (NAA) commenced the sixth season of its nationwide maintenance competition, Maintenance Mania®.  The Nevada State Apartment Association is extremely proud to be able to shine a light on such an outstanding group of maintenance professionals through the Maintenance Mania® program.

On Friday, October 25, 2013 the Nevada State Apartment Association will host its 6th annual Maintenance Mania® competition at the Sport Center of Las Vegas (121 East Sunset Road; Noon – 5 pm).  Maintenance technicians from all over the Las Vegas Valley will be able to compete against each other in various skill-based games. Consisting of eight maintenance-focused challenges, the competitors will test their maintenance skills and knowledge of the industry as they compete to earn the title of the Maintenance Mania® National Champion.

Maintenance Mania® Games include eight events that are standard for all Maintenance Mania® programs. Each race is open to every Maintenance Mania® participant.  Racing against the clock, these highly skilled maintenance professionals will compete against each other to see who is the fastest at CFG Faucet Installation, Bradford White Water Heater Installation, Fluidmaster Duo Flush Toilet Conversion, Frigidaire Icemaker Installation, Kidde Fire & Carbon Monoxide Safety Installation, Kwikset Key Control Deadbolt Test, and Seasons Ceiling Fan Installation.

The finale of the event concludes with a Motorola & Niagara Conservation Race Car Competition, where the competitors build a model car using at least one maintenance product or part and race it down a pinewood derby-style track.
