Preventative Maintenance Tips

Can you see it, just over the horizon, if you squint, I think, maybe… is that sunshine? ? If it’s not here now, it will be soon as we start skipping into Spring. Time to venture outdoors and do some preventative maintenance!

Home maintenance can seem tedious at times, but it can save you money and time in the long run.

Here are the top Spring Preventative Maintenance tips from our building inspectors;

  • Clear your gutters and downpipes of any debris that may have accumulated during the winter storms.
  • Check the exterior for any weather damage
  • Check all pool barriers for potential safety hazards. Have any latches been affected by corrosion etc
  • Take a walk around your gardens. Make sure any trees or large plants are contained and not intruding on any retaining walls.
  • Wash down the decks and debug patios and pergolas removing unwanted guests from those summer get-togethers.
  • Get your air conditioning serviced and filters cleaned ready for those hot summer nights.
  • Keep an eye out for timber pest – Spring is the swarming season for most subterranean termites. Swarmers are winged mature termites who go looking for places to form new colonies. If you see areas of possible infestation arrange an expert to carry out a timber pest inspection asap.

Don’t forget to enjoy the sunshine while you work!

Hi there, 

We see you have added an Electrical, Plumbing and Gas inspection (EPG) with a Pre-Settlement inspection. 

Please note these are very similar inspections, just performed at different times. The EPG occurs during your pre-purchase inspection, while the Pre-Settlement occurs 5-7 days before settlement. 

If you require both please proceed to check out. Alternatively, remove one and continue.
