Whether you are looking to sell, hosting an upcoming event or simply wanting to impress that special friend of yours, regular maintenance is important for the well-being of your property.
It’s not only the aesthetics of your property and surrounding lands that can be affected by negligence and a lack of regular maintenance. By doing just that you also risk seriously de-valuing your property through the issues that can manifest themselves when left untreated.
Luckily for you here at A1 Sure Services we offer a range of property maintenance solutions designed to prevent, treat and maintain these issues whatever they may be. Whether it’s that nuisance of a tree that overhangs your garden and blocks all the light or that troublesome hedge that a previous tenant planted, we have the experience and know how to take care of it.
While this is all well and good for the bigger jobs, we also aim to educate and in the following list you will find a brief overview of four of the different types of property maintenance and what you can do yourself to help protect the value of your most important asset.
- Routine Maintenance
These are the jobs that typically should be carried out daily, weekly or fortnightly.
From sweeping up those leaves that seem to stain the courtyard to mowing the lawns, this form of maintenance is usually easily carried out and although it may seem trivial, can save you valuable time and money in the long run.
- Preventative Maintenance
Quite possibly the easiest type of maintenance to neglect or overlook, preventative steps that you take now can help identify and fix minor problems on your property before they become major.. and more costly.
Simple precautions such as ensuring weather suitability, fixing that dripping outdoor tap or replacing rotting structures before they become an issue could save the value of your home or business exponentially.
- Corrective Maintenance
Corrective maintenance or what we refer to as the bread-and-butter of our job is one of our most common reasons for call-out and usually involves a hysterical home-owner or property manager panicking over something that has gone wrong.
More often than not a result of a lack of preventative maintenance or incorrect procedure, it’s best to call in the pros for this step rather than risk causing more damage when taking down that tree or carrying out a stump grinding.
- Cosmetic Maintenance
Simple yet effective, protect the aesthetics of your property with regular cosmetic maintenance.
Trimming overhanging branches, pruning hedges, removing green rubbish regularly and carrying out general garden tidy ups are easy to do and can improve the overall appeal of your property and ensure it looks it’s best for guests or potential buyers.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our tips and understand a bit better the importance of regular property maintenance.
For the jobs that are too big to carry out yourself, don’t forget to give us a call at A1 Sure Services for all your tree removal, tree care, hedge trimming, stump grinding, land clearing and landscaping needs!
See you next time.
