Dry Season Maintenance Tips

We’ve put together some dry season maintenance tips below, to keep you and your property in tip top shape in the Dry.

It is that time of year…Darwin’s famous dry season, and we could not be happier.

As the wet season humidity becomes a memory, we emerge from our air-conditioned sanctuaries, and begin to spend more time outdoors. Spending a little time on maintenance of your property not only gives you an excuse to get up and about in our lovely climate, but maintains the property value, and prevents future maintenance problems.

We’ve put together some dry season maintenance tips below, to keep you and your property in tip top shape in the Dry.

 

Garden

  • Trimming and pruning of garden beds and hedges
  • Clearing and Removal of palm fronds and undergrowth
  • Check for root growth – large trees and bushes can grow extensive root systems which may interfere with underground pipes causing blocked drains.
  • Checking reticulation is in working order.
  • Re-mulching garden beds
  • Fertilise during the dry season.
  • Replace any sprinklers and hoses.
  • Clean out gutters and downpipes.
  • Attend to cracked bricks or loose weather boards on the outside of the house.
  • Repair damaged fly screens
  • Repair any damage to fencing or gates to keep your property secure.

 

Household

  • Maintain and test your fire alarm, remove dust and cobwebs.
  • Repair paint chips, or peeling paint in walls and door frames
  • Get professional air conditioner cleaning and maintenance, to remove any remnants of mould, bacteria and dust.
  • Clean solar panels, they will work more effectively if cleared of dust and debris.
