Going away? Top Tips for Winter Property Maintenance

Top Tips for Winter Property Maintenance

It’s vital to remember to protect your property during the winter months, especially if you are taking that long overdue Winter break; there are a few simple steps that you can take to avoid costly surprises –

      • Protect your pipes from freezing – You should remember to leave the heating on a low temperate, even if the property is unoccupied, to avoid pipes freezing and bursting.
      • Check drains and gutters – It is advisable to instruct a maintenance contractor to visit your property to ensure that your drains and gutters are not blocked.

9 winter garden tips

There is still a lot to do in the garden to make sure that it’s ready for next year and looking even better.

9 must do’s for the garden this Winter:

1.  Attend to the garden infrastructure

Replace cracked or disintegrating pavers, broken lights, damaged outside furniture, clean out bird’s nests and flood debris, and generally spruce the garden up. Tidy the garden borders and tie climbing plants securely to the wall or fence in readiness for the gale force winds. Clear all the autumn leaves and then sweep all the drives and paths.
