[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.

First Impressions of your Business Counts
Your business image speaks volumes and customers will form an opinion within the first few seconds of seeing your office or property.
If you’re a business owner your image gives out clues to your existing and new customers about your professionalism, your quality of service and attention to detail as well as how conscientious and caring you are about everything you work.
How Your Premises Look Counts
The presentation of your business premises is an extension of your brand and values and should be treated as so, to ensure a positive first impression to anyone who visits your business. If your business looks good and clean on the outside the perception will be that it’s well kept on the inside too.
Don’t Let Appearances bring down the quality of your business
Everyday you will see many business premises where gradual deterioration has gone unnoticed by the owners, be it render going mouldy and dirty, dirty windows or fascia panels and car parks full of weeds and litter.
The problem is usually dealt with only at the point when the situation has got really bad but you can guarantee that visitors will have noticed it well before then. That’s why it’s so important to have a regular render cleaning or window cleaning maintenance schedule in place.
A dirty looking business property can also be interpreted by suppliers that you could be a potential debt risk or struggling financially even though your books are probably very healthy. So, not only are good first impressions of your business vital for your customers, but also vital for your suppliers.
If you employ staff, a clean, well maintained premises is good for morale too. Nobody wants to work in a dirty environment and have to look through filthy dirty windows. As a business owner if you don’t care about how your business looks and how it’s cared for then why should your employees care.
You can Prevent the Risk of Damage
Studies on anti-social behaviour clearly indicate that poorly maintained dirty buildings show more incidents of window breakages and vandalism. If you show you don’y care other may think it’s OK to to destroy it. Regular maintenance & cleaning schedule could really help prevent potential damage to your premises and the expensive associated costs of repairs.
Water damage to buildings from poorly maintained guttering can be very expensive to correct, so all things considered it makes sense and is more cost effective to implement a regular maintenance schedule for the whole of your property.
If you want a good clean image and more customers creating greater profits, then it’s important to ensure you and your business shine by keeping a smart first impression.
