New Year’s resolutions to maintain your home – tips from a handyman in JHB


Although most people have the best of intentions when they make a resolution to keep their home maintenance up, handyman services in Johannesburg can be a real lifesaver for those who simply don’t have the time to do it. During the year there are a lot of maintenance issues that can occur with a building. Many people delay or simply postpone performing this maintenance due to time constraints or lack of motivation.

The problem is that if not seen to decisively and with a skilful hand, this overdue maintenance can lead to serious problems and even damage to your property. When thinking of New Year’s resolutions for maintaining your home, consider the following:

  • Clearing the gutters and storm drains: Very few people routinely clear out the gutters and storm drains. The problem with this silent time bomb is that you may not even think about doing it until it is too late. This is the stage where many people call in emergency handyman services to take care of the problem. Keep your storm drains and gutters clear to prevent this from becoming an issue!
  • New coat of paint: Although not a dire emergency, a house can always do with a fresh coat of paint. Experts say that a home should be painted afresh every three to five years. If you are in the mood for a change, but still don’t have the inclination to do it yourself, hire handyman services to take care of the painting job for you then brag to all your friends about your hard work.
  • Installing fire alarms: This is possibly also one of the most important things you can do for your home’s maintenance. Installing and maintaining fire alarms can prevent a small accident from becoming a full blown tragedy.
