Spring Property Maintenance Tips

 

With the days longer and spring finally arriving, it’s time to begin spring cleaning your home to get it ready for the summer months. Whether it’s a boggy garden or missing roof tiles, you may have seen winter take a toll on your property.

 

Here are our top tips for getting your property in ship shape for the months ahead.

 

Tidy the garden

 

Although it’s advised that to stay on top of your garden year-round, spring is the ideal time to get your garden back to its best with a good tidy up.

 

It could be reseeding certain areas of grassland, addressing overgrown branches (that are at risk of falling) or just getting rid of weeds.

 

 

Review the guttering

 

Check whether your gutters are loose or leaky in preparation for spring showers. Failing to clear your gutters puts your property at risk of water damage, which is an expensive fix.

 

Inspect the patio/concrete

 

Broken or heavily cracked concrete poses health and safety and drainage risks. Ensure these are filled carefully with concrete to help protect them from water damage and keep them smoothed over.

 

Replace smoke/CO detector batteries

 

This can be easy to forget, but it is a potentially lifesaving action!

 

Don’t completely switch off radiators

 

This may seem odd, but keep in mind that turning off your heating whilst it’s empty could lead to damp issues in your property.

 

We hope this will help !
