Our Top 3 Winter Home Maintenance Tips
During cold, harsh Winters don’t want to be carrying out repairs to your home. Using our 5 maintenance top tips, you can prepare your home for the colder weather and the months ahead.
1. Check Your Gutters and Drainage
When the rain falls and your gutters are blocked, pressure is applied to grime and after a period of time this can cause your pipes to crack or clog further and cause a backlog. Maintaining your gutters and clearing them out regularly will stop them from causing issues. When the Winter weather does hit and it freezes, the water that is in your pipes with the leaves and dirt will freeze meaning that nothing can pass through. This is why it is extremely important that you clean out your gutters on a regular basis.
2. Check Your Windows
Windows are perfect for allowing the natural light to flow into your home. However, over time the window surroundings can rot and become damaged. As we head into Winter it is important that you check these and make sure they are in good condition. If they are damaged or air can get in, your home will feel much colder. If cold air can get in, warm air can get out.
3. Have Your Electrical Systems Been Checked?
As the evenings are much darker, the last thing you need is for your electrical system to fail. An electrical maintenance check will do no harm to your property and it will allow a professional electrician to see if any repairs require carrying out.
