Repairs & Maintenance
A common problem in properties is leaking from wet areas eg. bathrooms, kitchens, into adjoining rooms, a regular check is advisable. If the carpet/floor is wet, sponge and dry area thoroughly and check again after use of the wet area, advise our office if there is still a problem.
LEAKING FROM TOILET
Usually is a minor problem. Regular mopping and turning off the tap between uses is adequate until the tradesperson arrives. Please complete the repair advice form and send to our office to arrange for a tradesperson.
Check the power is connected, the water taps are turned on, the load of clothes is not off balance or too high, lid is connecting with on/off switch when closing, hoses are securely attached, if leaking- check hoses for splits.
When all else fails, phone us during office hours.
