Broken windows and doors, or damaged tiles in your bathroom? When was the last time you checked the safety of your house and backyard? January is the perfect time to ensure your property is safe, secure, and fully functional ready to tackle the year ahead.
Whether or not you want to DIY by checking common hazard areas or call in a professional property maintenance expert for a thorough audit service, this week we thought we’d outline the key areas inside and out of your home to be aware of.
Outdoor: Check everything from the condition of your fence and gate latches through to the decks, pergolas and carports ensuring they’re structurally sound and gutters cleared of debris.
Internal: Check for damage to any walls, windows or flooring, leaky taps and broken shower heads, damaged tiling or grouting, broken hinges and ensure working smoke alarms.
Remember, it’s something most people will be lucky to do even once a year, so a thorough examination of your property is best. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, a professional check-up might be the answer.
