Nobody wants to be paying money to fix problems in their home which could have been avoided! Here are some tips to keep your home and your wallet healthy!
Check for leaks
Leaks are an almighty problem in your home! Not only do they cause damage, but they can also ramp up your DEWA bill in no time! Identifying and fixing a water leak early can make your life a lot easier. Check around windows, doors, sinks, showers, toilets and water heaters in your units for signs of leakage. Look for water pockets on the walls and ceiling, especially after rainstorms or if it’s particularly humid!
Keep on top of shower seals and cracks in tile grout
Regular use of bathroom and kitchen surfaces leads to cracks and loose tiles. Resealing the areas around the bath tub, sink and tiles will prevent water from getting into and damaging the walls and floors. It also helps keep your home looking fresh and avoids the build up of limescale.
Repaint your property
Don’t wait until your building’s exterior is peeling or the interior walls are damaged and dingy. A new coat of paint can make your home feel brand new, fresh and clean. It can also improve your unit’s marketability.
Service your AC
Neglecting your AC ducts until they get clogged can not only be costly but can also be detrimental to your health. Servicing your AC every quarter can keep the air in your home circulating efficiently. This is extra important fir the summer months. Don’t wait until the depths of hot weather and humidity for your AC to breakdown.
Check for pests
Dealing with a major pest problem can be costly. You may need to temporarily move whilst professionals get to work on evicting the unwanted lodgers. Examine your property periodically for signs of pest intrusions. Pay close attention to any wood in your home for termites and take care of the problem before it becomes an infestation.
