Jobs that need to be done around the home can be divided up into three different groups.The first is short-term cleaning and maintenance (such as bathroom cleaning and mowing the lawn), the second is medium-term cleaning and maintenance (such as washing windows) and the third is long-term cleaning and maintenance (such as the annual spring clean of the interior of the home and the cleaning of plastic guttering).
And of course, there are the jobs that you do for aesthetic reasons (such as cleaning the windows) and there are the jobs you do for health and safety reasons (such as checking fire alarms work).Cleaning out your property’s plastic guttering is a job that many people overlook. This is partly because guttering does it work quietly and without complaint so people forget it’s there, and because it is situated on the outside of the home.
But forgetting to clean your guttering can have nasty effects which you may not notice until it is too late.If you live in a hot, dry and leafy area, a build-up of leaves in your gutters makes for the perfect fire conditions.If you live in a wet and damp area, you might find that your guttering begins to mould and give off a foul odour.
Anyone who enjoys the view of tall trees of ferns in their garden should also bear in mind that their guttering will be prone to becoming clogged. When damp weather strikes, this can lead to rotting fascia boards, water damage to your roof and walls and eventual problems with the foundation to your property.Why not make your life easier and deal with the small jobs now, rather than waiting for them to become bigger – and more expensive.When it comes to chores in the home, try to think ahead.
