Estimated reading time: 1 minutes, 42 seconds

Start off with an inspection

The new year is the perfect time to give your home a thorough inspection for any problems. Make sure you look for anything that’s loose, broken, rusting or just in some need of a little TLC. If you do come across anything that needs repairing or replacing then give FIXAS a call. One of our team members will be with you as soon as possible.

Freshen up your walls

As you sit at your laptop reading this article, you look up at your walls and realise that they’re in desperate need of a fresh lick of paint, an injection of colour or a new style of wallpaper. Even if you don’t have a vision for your new walls, we can help you decide what you’d like depending on your personal taste and style. Then, let the re-decorating commence!

Get your boiler serviced

Christmas may be over but winter has only just started. Avoid running the risk of being stuck in the cold without any central heating or hot water and get your boiler booked in for a service. The FIXAS team can come and inspect your boiler and fix any problems that we encounter along the way. We want you to be as toasty and warm as possible whilst you’re recovering from the Christmas chaos.

Unclog your gutters and drains

In the cold winter months, it’s much easier for leaves to accumulate in drains and gutters. This might leave them in need of an unblocking and a good clean too. Stay away from the ladder and put down your toolbox. Leave the DIY to the professionals. Give us a call and we can get it all sorted for you. It’ll all be unblocked in no time.

Don’t ignore the exterior

It’s so easy to get caught up in decorating and cleaning your home’s interior that you can forget all about the exterior. Is the paint peeling off the walls? Is your letterbox hanging on by only the left hinge? Have a look and get in touch with the FIXAS team if you spot any problems.
