As the winter chill settles in, it’s crucial for both tenants and landlords to ensure a safe and cosy living environment. Below you’ll find our practical tips to navigate the incoming winter season smoothly.
Our top 5 winter tips for the well-being of your property:
1) Damp proofing
Combat winter dampness by regularly wiping away condensation, especially around older wooden window frames. Utilise extractor fans in bathrooms and kitchens, or leave a window slightly open after moisture-generating activities.
2) Protect your pipes
Contribute to pipe care by setting the heating to a low temperature, preventing freezing and aligning with potential tenancy agreement requirements.
3) Ice proofing
Keep a bag of salt on standby for freezing nights and consider crafting a snow clearing plan to prevent slippery situations around your property.
4) Safety first
Prioritise safety by choosing LED candles over traditional flames, reducing the risk of accidents.
5) Be prepared
Have emergency numbers on hand for locksmiths, plumbers, and other essential services. Being prepared for unexpected issues during the festive period provides peace of mind.
