Checklist – Autumn Property Maintenance

Checklist – Autumn Property Maintenance

The winter months are creeping up on us, but before we find ourselves in the depths of winter, you can do a few maintenance checks to look after your home or business property. We have created a check list of things to do this autumn.

Roof

If your roof is in need of repair, don’t wait until it starts leaking before you decide to get it fixed. To get your roof repaired is not cheap, but leaving the damage to get worse will cost you more in the long run as a small leak can cause a lot of damage if left.

Some problems can be spotted from the ground like some missing or lose tiles. When it comes to replacing them there’s only one way to do it and that’s going up a ladder. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s worth getting a roofer to do this for you, as you are insured a quality job. If a tile is replaced badly or others are displaced in the process, more damaged can be caused, resulting in a bigger bill to fix the resulting problems down the line.

Checking for leaks in the roof via your loft. After it’s been raining, check for puddles of water, mould or wet insulation. If you find any signs of dampness you’ve probably got a leak. If there’s damp around pipes or chimney breasts, this is probably due to a damaged flashing. A leak anywhere else in the loft suggests there is a problem with the roofing material, such as a loose tile.

Guttering

Twigs and fallen leaves clog up guttering during the autumn months. Once the leaves have dropped from the trees around your property it’s well worth clearing your guttering to make sure rainwater can flow off efficiently. It’s one of those jobs that people forget to do, until their gutters get blocked and then it could be late if you don’t get the problem sorted asap.

To clear guttering you simply need to scoop out any debris and rinse by running a hose pipe down them. This is a straightforward job that should be done annually. It involves going up and down a ladder, as you will need to move it along every few feet to clear each section of guttering.

Clearing your gutters is an important part of your property maintenance. A blocked gutter can cause structural damage to your property and at the least, damage the mortar and cause a leak. It’s worth calling in a professional gutter cleaner to inspect your gutters during the autumn; they can then clear your gutters at the same time.

Windows, Doors & Frames

If any paint has cracked, or has started to split, the damaged area will need to be sanded back and repainted, to prevent frost getting into the woodwork and causing rot.

Wooden windows and doors can last up many years, if looked after properly, compared to the 20 year average life of uPVC frames. Woodwork should be repainted every around every five to ten years, North facing woodwork will be hit harder by the winter weather so may need more regular maintenance. If woodwork is neglected for too long it will need to be replaced completely. 

Draught proofing your windows and doors is one of the cheapest ways to save energy around the home and it could save you around a lot of money in the colder months. By reducing drafts you’ll be able to turn your thermostat down in turn saving you money.

Draught proofing a door only costs a couple of pounds to do the keyhole, letter box and the gap under the door. To draught proof windows, stick draught-proofing strips around the window frame to fill the gap between the window and the frame. 

Heating

Mid October is when when most of us turn our heating on as the the weather get colder. It’s also when heating engineers are at their busiest, fixing lots of broken down boilers. It’s far more cost effective to have your boiler serviced every year, rather than waiting for it to break down before it sees a heating engineer.

If you look to your checklist all year and keep your home or business in a good maintained state you will enjoy your property all year and in the long term save lots of money and yourself stress.

Our house maintenance services cover Burnley, Blackburn, Accrington, Clitheroe, Whalley, Gisburn, Padiham, Rossendale, Hebden Bridge, Brockhall Village, Skipton, Todmorden, Great Harwood, Darwen and the surrounding areas.

Removing Graffiti / Vandalism from Shutters & Bricks Tips

Removing Graffiti Vandalism from your Property 

We all know to well that kids and sometimes adults have too much time on their hands and like to add graffiti anywhere they see a large canvas space. This maybe business shutters, walls and the front of buildings. Sometime the graffiti is very artistic and beautiful, but it has no place on any exterior without prior agreement.

Graffiti causes a major problem, as it not only vandalises your property, but it is very hard to get off.  Sometimes you can have a special coating applied when having the shutter installed; the coating can help with removal of vandalism.  However, sometimes that won’t help. With many years of experience and a professional team, I have put together some helpful tips…

TIPS FOR REMOVAL OF GRAFFITI 

Graffiti on brick surfaces – Unpainted brick surfaces are probably the toughest to get graffiti off

For brick surfaces, especially red brick, we recommend a professional cleanup, using a biodegradable emulsifier. This method minimizes the toll on the surface. It is generally too difficult to tackle a very rough surface with wire brushes and solvents as the finished job will still bear a fair amount of the evidence of the graffiti.

Painted surfaces are probably best repainted, though it would be wise to have a supply of graffiti removal solvent ready for rapid response

Having plenty of matching paint available for immediate cover-up within a day or two of the appearance of graffiti. Rapid response is the key.

  • For surfaces like mailboxes, utility boxes, steel roll-up doors, lampposts –  liquid graffiti removal solvent “Savogram” is a very good graffiti removal solution
  • If you clean the graffiti when it is fresh, it will be mush easier to removed and may only require some light duty steel wool and  spray of solvent
  • Very little solvent should be used if the graffiti is recent – Just spray on some solvent, lightly rub with steel wool and wipe dry.
  • Always wear rubber gloves and lightly wash the affected area after removing the graffiti
  • Always check the directions on any solvents to make sure they are OK to use on the surface you are cleaning

Graffiti on Metal Surfaces

  • Wipe the graffiti with any common paint thinner like WD40, lacquer thinner, acetone or try some graffiti removal products pr light penetrating oil
  • Or try rubbing cleaning it with steel wool or bronze wool / light sandpaper

Graffiti on Wood Surfaces

  • Rub paint thinner over the affected area
  • Try using a hand scraper to gently scrape the graffiti from your fence

Use the wire brush on:

Any surface where you use a wire brush should be a surface, that will over time, weather back to the original color or texture.

  • Some rough metals
  • Smooth stone surfaces
  • Decorative rocks
  • Wood fences
  • Concrete

Use Wire Wool:

  • Brick
  • Metal
  • Metal shutters

Graffiti removal is not a SIMPLE TASK, especially when it involves brick or other rough surfaces. You may only be able to reduce the graffiti to an unrecognisable fade.

Solvents and Cleaners

There are a number of graffiti removal products on the market. Learn about safe use and safe handling. Some of the better known solvents available at major hardware stores can be hazardous to your health. Breathing this stuff is obnoxious and NOT healthy. You need to be aware of wind conditions. You need eye and breathing protection when you use it. Rags used with solvent should be discarded properly. DO NOT KEEP FLAMMABLE RAGS in containers in your vehicle or garage.
