I know that home maintenance, might not be at the top of your to-do list. Like my laundry, I put mine off for as long for as possible. But the problem with that is things can get really bad, or even break or leak. But what if there was a way that you could get some of the bigger stuff done, without lifting a finger? There is. Try outsourcing these jobs to professionals to make sure that your home look gorgeous and runs smoothly.
If you love to cook, then your oven is probably a bit disgusting inside. The problem with cleaning the oven yourself is that you have to get down and dirty with oven cleaner, scrubbing away at all that burnt on food. Not the best use of a Sunday morning in my book. That’s why you should get someone in to do it for you. They will do the scrubbing and the cleaning, deal with the harsh chemical and get to wear the fetching rubber gloves. You get to have a nice sit down with a cup of coffee. Well worth the money in my opinion.
Roof repair and maintenance can be expensive. If you live in an older property, it’s best to keep on eye on things so you can deal with them before they deteriorate too much. While you can grab a ladder and work on the roof yourself, it’s not the safest option. Roofs can be slippery, and difficult to walk across. If you’re not keen on height working on the roof is a definite no-no. By employing a professional roofer, you get to stay with your feet firmly on the ground and you roof still gets the maintenance its needs.
Your boiler is an essential part of your heating and hot water systems. If your boiler breaks down, you could be without hot water and central heating when you need it the most. Your boiler is also one thing that will need professional servicing. You won’t be able to do it yourself. Use a boiler servicing company for this to make sure your boiler is working at 100% before the cold weather sets in.
You can clean your own carpets with products from the supermarket or rented machines. But a dedicated carpet cleaning service will do a better job. This is because they have better equipment and chemicals available to them. Getting a professional carpet clean is an especially good idea if you are in a rental property. You can keep the invoice for when you move out, providing that you have taken good care of the carpets.
Curtains can be washed in a domestic washing machine, but you might be better off taking them to the dry cleaners. This is because they can shrink if exposed to water. The are also cumbersome and heavy, and it’s easier to get someone else to do the cleaning than having to handle them yourself.
