Spring Is Here

Spring has sprung here in Perth and as we warm up it is an important time for property owners and property managers to carry out some essential spring maintenance on their properties.

There are two critical points as we head into spring. We need to ensure that reticulation systems are set to water the gardens and we need to undertake summer servicing on air-conditioning units so that they are ready for the first demand for cooling.

Planning ahead and dealing with any major reticulation and air-conditioning repair items pre-emptively can save you considerable expense and unnecessary angst over the summer months.


We recommend the following-

  • A pre-summer air-conditioning service that identifies any repairs that need to be carried out.
  • An inspection and test of all reticulation systems, ensuring that any broken sprinkler heads or damaged pipes have been repaired or replaced.
  • All reticulation systems being set to their watering days.
  • Lawns and verges mowed and garden beds and driveways being sprayed for weeds

As well as providing the opportunity to ensure that your property is ready to cope with the summer months, spring is also the beginning of fire danger season here in Perth. The Department of Fire and Emergency Services recommend taking the following steps to get you property fire ready this spring –

  • Clearing any leaves and debris out from gutters and down pipes
  • Clearing the gardens of any loose foliage, rubbish and dead plants
  • Ensuring that your fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, fire hose reels and fire alarms have been recently serviced and are in sound working order
  • Checking that the building insurance is adequate on both the owner and tenant side

No property owner wants to be caught out this summer – take the time this spring to maintain and prepare your property and ensure you can enjoy your summer months hassle free!
