1. SMOKE ALARMS
Designed to detect smoke in your home before you do, make sure your smoke alarm is properly connected and the battery isn’t flat. Smoke alarm services >
2. GUTTER CLEANING
Blocked up gutters can lead to a whole heap of problems around the home like water damage or mould. Reduce your fire risk, prevent overspills and make rain harvesting easier & cleaner. Gutter cleaning services >
3. LOCKS & SCREENS
Avoid any unwanted visitors accessing your home by checking your locks aren’t faulty and that your screens are in working order. If you’ve just moved home, we recommend changing the locks as soon as you’re in your new house. Locks and screens services >
4. MOSS COVERED PATHWAYS
Moss growth is a common problem on stone, concrete and other surfaces that remain shaded and fairly moist throughout the day. It is important to remove moss, especially over walking paths and steps, as it can be quite slippery and a real hazard. High-pressure cleaning services >
If you’ve got little ones running around your home, be careful to remove the added dangers by childproofing your home.
6. DOORS & WINDOWS
Keep your home warm and insulated by ensuring your doors and windows are properly installed and don’t have any gaps. This will also provide extra security for your home. Doors and window services >
Don’t let your little loved ones escape (pets and kids!) by making sure your fences and gates are up to scratch. If you have a pool in your backyard, we recommend pool fencing. Fencing services >
Under maintained decks can be a hazard in your home. Making sure nails are secured below the timber is a must. We also recommend that decks should be oiled every 12 months to keep them healthy and free from water soaking and rot. Decking planks can be replaced beforehand and a new refreshing coat of oil (there’s quite a few to choose from) can revitalise it before entertaining in the summer months. Decking services >
9. RUBBISH REMOVAL
Removing rubbish from around the yard can help reduce clutter and the risk of fire. People in a bush fire prone area especially should check the amount of rubbish around the home annually. Removing building materials, paints and hazardous liquids and a general tidy up of your garden including pruning is recommended.
