Winter property maintenance tips

[responsivevoice_button voice=”UK English Male” buttontext=”Play”]   Winter Property Maintenance Tips for your Home & Business

It’s time for business owners and homeowners to turn their attentions to some pre-winter property maintenance checks.

With winter calling, it won’t be long until the freeze arrives. The time to ensure your property is up to withstanding the ravages of the cold season is now not after you have the problem.

Ensuring your property’s roof, drainpipes, grids and windows are in good repair is essential to your property maintenance. 

Looking after your property inside & out

Condensation & Mould

  • Many people keep the heating off for long periods either to try to save money, or because they don’t use the system properly. A cold house with steam from baths and showers as well as cooking, can cause condensation, which quickly develops into nasty, and harmful, black mould spores. Keeping the house warm will help prevent this, as well as ensuring the perils of frozen pipes don’t cause an even more costly problem.


  • Gutter maintenance – Keep a lookout for blockages in guttering and downpipes which could cause excess water to run down the side of the property creating damp spots, and if left untreated can cause major damage to your property.

Lag those Pipes

  • Thoroughly check the pipework in your property for any signs of damage or cracking.

Even if you spot a minor defect, follow up by inviting an expert for a second opinion and if some work needs to be completed, get it done now. Pipe problems not remedied are a recipe for disaster in the event of a big freeze. Once you are happy that your pipes are in sound condition, get them lagged to prevent them from freezing.

Service your Boiler

  • One of the most expensive breakdowns during the winter is a boiler malfunction. The key here is regular maintenance and servicing, so if your boiler hasn’t had a service for a while, get one done as soon as you can. This will this save you money in the long term. 

Clear your Guttering

  • Winter storms leave a trail of fallen leaves, twigs, branches and other detritus in guttering and downpipes. If rain water has nowhere to go due to blockages, it will opt for the side of your property, which can cause major damage and damp problems. Call in an expert to clear your guttering and downpipes before the weather gets colder.

Up on the Roof

  • Broken roof tiles are unfortunately a strong possibility during winter storms. Before the weather gets colder, call in a professional to examine your roof for broken or damaged tiles.

A leaking roof can take time to show itself through damage so it’s worth checking it out. If having your gutters cleared, the gutter team might be able to access any roof damage and let you know if they see any major problems.

Sweep the Fireplace

  • Chances are your fireplace has not seen any action during spring or summer. With that in mind, it’s worth having it serviced. There is a possibility that debris may have built up and this could make the fire unsafe. Carbon Monoxide fumes and chimney fires are a major hazard so calling in an expert for a sweep through really is a must at this time of year before you get that fire roaring.

When you require a high quality pressure jet washing service, you need to hire a specialist, and at WFC Power Jet Cleaning services we pride ourselves on delivering outstanding results every time.

Pressure washing is the best way to clean the outdoor areas of your premises, and we only use professional equipment to get your cleaning job done to perfection.

Our power jet washing equipment can remove even the toughest dirt and stains. We recommend using it to clean up brickwork, signage, concrete, stone and other outdoor areas so everything looks pristine.

Make The Right Impression

Your exterior is the gateway to your business or home so it should make the right impression to clients and customers. We recommend regular high pressure jet washing to keep it looking fresh and you might prefer to organise your outdoor clean once a year as part of your planned maintenance schedule.

The WFC power jet washing system is so strong it can also remove the most stubborn graffiti.

New Year 2019 Clean Up

Its that time of the year fresh start new beginning and a full clear out and clean up of the old. Cleaning up your home or business is a great feeling and January is the time to do it. This maybe getting all the old items you don’t use in your home or business and giving them away to charity or selling them to people that need them.

Having a good clear out always allows for the feel good factor to shine through and a sense of enjoyment to set in.

Inside and out side of you house or business premises. That means your WINDOWS, GUTTERS, WALLS, DRIVEWAY and any other areas that collect dirt or mess. Yes its time to really clean up and get the whole place looking good.


Window cleaning inside and out makes sure your windows are sparkling clean and best done by professionals if you want the job done fast and properly. This can be your home windows or business windows.


Gutters cleaning after the fall is a must with all the debris that has come from the winds and tree’s stuck in your gutters, this can block them from functioning properly and that can get worse if frost and ice set in.  Getting your gutters cleaned and checked is another priority you should have done in Jan or Feb and cleaning professionals are there to do the job right. Never try to do gutters yourself if you are unsure, as it can be dangerous  to your health and its easy to have an accident. Cleaning gutters is not a guessing game and professionals do it best.

Walkway, Driveways, Walls

Cleaning walkways and driveways, including walls is another task that should be done in Jan or Feb to get ready for the coming seasons with a clean start. Grease and moss looks ugly and its not the best look for your business entrance or your home.  Having the kids or grandchildren run around in unkept areas is also not much fun.

Lets make a New Years resolution and get these jobs done as soon as possible.
