end of tenancy clean

Need an end of tenancy clean?

If you are a tenant and moving out of your rental, in order to get your deposit back you need to ensure your end of tenancy clean is up to the standards required.

As a landlord an end of tenancy clean is the bare minimum you need to do before a new tenant moves in. A rental property needs to be in tip top condition before it is rented out again. Renters are looking for clean, tidy and neutral properties to move in to.

Some landlords have to manage much more than a basic clean though, as some renters can leave a property in less than a charming condition. This might mean removal of rubbish, tidy up of garden, re-painting within the property and of course the end of tenancy clean itself.

How colour can transform a room

Whether you are furloughed or working from home right it is fair to say a chunk of the population are spending more time at home. It is amazing how colour can transform the look and feel of a room too. Does your home need an area that is more calming or relaxing? The right choice of colour can influence the whole way you feel about a space.

Taking care of our mental health is as important as ever right now and redecorating your home can be a great way to create tranquil spaces.

One of the best ways to create relaxing areas in your home is to choose a calming colour scheme and it’s the little changes that can make a big difference.

After all, the rooms in our homes are wearing many hats at the moment, so we want them to have as much personality as possible. Let’s take a look at two of the rooms we are supposed to relax in.

Your Bedroom

When we’re in our bedroom, we want it to be like a sanctuary of calm. Colour plays a big part in that. This is especially true of greens. People are looking for the soothing effect of this palette. Its earthiness brings the outside in, distracting us from our phones and devices in the process.

Blue has similarly positive effects on the mind and the body. As the colour of the sky, ocean and sleep, it invokes rest and can cause your body to produce chemicals that are calming and exude feelings of tranquillity.

Your Bathroom

Bathrooms were once a space used purely as somewhere clean, but they have evolved to become a place where we go to relax and feel rejuvenated, too.

Bringing the spa to your house, you could say. With this in mind, the way we decorate our bathrooms can have a huge impact on how we start and end our day.

Bold shades such as teal or red will definitely give you a much-needed caffeine boost in the morning whilst hues of yellow is one that will lift spirits and when teamed with accents of white or grey add a contemporary twist. Dusky pinks will generate a more restful vibe, and don’t need to be too feminine. Consider the amount of natural light your bathroom receives and pick a tone that enhances the cool or warm feeling you need to enhance.

If you are not comfortable updating the look and feel of these rooms why not call in the experts. We have your relaxation spaces spruced up in no time at all.

Boiler

Is your boiler fit for winter?

Whether you are a homeowner, property manager or landlord now is the time to starting thinking about the health of your boiler.

So what is the condition of your heating system?

Did you know over 50% of domestic boiler breakdowns occur between November and February, so consumers need to plan ahead to ensure that their heating systems are ready for the cold weather.

For boilers that are already suffering from wear and tear, the increased strain of daily use can cause components to fail and breakdown. 

The warning came from consumer advice firm, The Heating Hub.

Jo Alsop, founder of The Heating Hub, said: “It’s no great surprise that boiler breakdowns rise during the winter months when we rely on our heating systems more frequently, but faulty boilers can leave households without heating or hot water when they need it most.  

Most people are also spending much more time at home now due to lockdown and this in turns puts extra strain on the hating and hot water systems.

Boilers can be repaired of course but the inconvenience of having no heating or hot water for a few days, especially during a cold snap could cause all manner of problems. For you as a homeowner or landlord and of course to any tenants.

Regularly servicing or managing your boiler can save all manner of costs from spiralling. New boilers are expensive though that investment could be worth it if you could consider the scenario of the damage burst pipes can cause a property – commercial of domestic.

Don’t forget winter proofing your property all round. We have had our first cold snap of the year but post December the cold weather will move in as usual.
