Perhaps “haunting” is an extreme version of the word we are looking for; but it’s still a fact that there are many household repairs that we often overlook and/or ignore. These tend to get back at us; costing us money and unfortunate even lives. The busy, hectic and nearly overflowing schedules of our day-to-day life is largely to blame. And there’s also the fact that we prioritize other things over these seemingly minor repairs; both with money and time.
Here are a few of the commonly overlooked repairs. Look around your home to find out if you have these. And if you do, bring out your tool kits and get repairing!
Smoke repairs and burglar alarms
Unless you’ve been playing SIMS recently, or had a burglary happen somewhere close to your place, we’re pretty sure you’ve not even though of checking these little gadgets for a few years. It’s recommended that you check on these if you’re returning to a closed down house, or even at the turn of the season. The garage door motors Brisbane and the security system in the garage too should not be forgotten. Not only is it a place where you store your car, but often it’s a means of entering to your house as well.
Broken window panes and rattling door handles
Broken window panes used to be a common thing in the times of before when children used to actually play out in the open. Though it happens less now-a-days, broken window panes are still a thing. Not only can it be an issue to your home’s security, but it can also turn into a disaster during the colder months; when it will be letting in the cold and drafty air. So, while you’re doing the garage door spring repair, take out your tools to fix the broken windows and the rattling and loose door handles as well you can also contact trusted repair professional online.
The roof leaks and the gutter fill ups
The roof too can be commonly over looked for most of the year. Unless where you live is prone to frequent rain, it’s possible that you may not notice the leaks in your roof or the filled-up gutters until the weather takes a bad turn. Filled up gutters especially can be very annoying, as if they get blocked with fallen leaves, they tend to spray the water towards the windows and the walls. This can even cause the dirty water from the roof to leak indoors!
The rotting and over grown tress in our surroundings
Though not strictly considered as a home repair, this too bares merit to be mentioned. When the colder months or the rainy season is soon approaching, take a look at the trees in your garden and in your surroundings. Figure out if any of it needs to be trimmed or cut down to avoid injuring those who pass by, or even crash into and damaging your roof during the bad weather.
