>Ashford Property Maintenance Tips!

How often should you have your gutters cleaned? You should clean your gutters once or twice a year, depending on what foliage surrounds the home. For example, if you live in a forest you would need your gutters cleaned more often than someone who lives in a built up area. If you don't get your gutters cleaned, your downpipes can get blocked with things like leaves which then causes water to overflow, causing leaks and damage to the gutter.

Did you know... Carpets ideally should be deep cleaned every 12 months! Now this is only guidance and will depend on everyones individual circumstances i.e a carpet that is walked on numerous times a day compared to a carpet that is not in a walkway will be different in how often it needs to be deep cleaned. Things like vacuuming regularly will help the carpet last longer between deep cleans but remember that this will not get rid of the dirt and dust that is deep within the fibres. If you have someone in the home that suffers with allergies a deep clean can really help removing dust and allergens that are embedded, which if not dealt with can be released once again into the air when walked over.
