2. Breakdown of Maintenance Items
Cleaning of Gutters
Regular cleaning of gutters prevents roof leaks, ensures no water leaks occurs, and ensures that water can flow freely. Water, when stationery, finds a place to go and can cause severe damage to your property. It is recommended to clean the gutters at least twice or three times per year. Negligence can also cause insurance claims not to pay out.
Carpentry within your home
Carpentry, when left for long periods, can cause deterioration. A hinge that is loose can cause severe, irrevocable damage to a cupboard door. Something as simple as a hinge can cost you R1000s of Rands in damage. It is vitally important to ensure that no further damages occur within your property. Carpentry inspections are recommended every 4-6 months.
When your roof is cleaned, your property does not only look better but it ensures that the paint lasts for longer periods. A roof clean is vitally important. When a roof is left uncleaned for more than 12 months, lichen forms on the paint, and in the long run, when it is then cleaned, the paint rips and the roof then needs to be painted. Prevention is better than cure in this scenario. It is recommended to clean the roof once every year. A roof clean also includes a gutter clean.
Cleaning of facia boards and barge boards
When left uncleaned, water stains or streaks form on the facia boards and barge boards. The more regularly they are cleaned, the less likely water stains become. Water stains are stubborn and cannot be cleaned off. The facia boards and barge boards then need to be painted. The cleaning of facia boards and barge boards are included in a gutter clean or a roof clean, and is recommended twice to 3 times per year.
Cleaning of upholstery and rugs
Did you know that nearly 10000 mites can live in a single square meter of carpet? Our biggest fear is mites. Mites form in upholstery, rugs, mattresses, and many other places. When cleaning upholstery and rugs, they are steam cleaned, and then extracted. You will often find that mites can cause illness, skin irritations and sinus among others. It is recommended to clean your rugs, mattresses and upholstery quarterly.
