Winter Maintenance is basically any jobs that can be done no matter what the weather is like outside. If you are like me you probably didn’t get everything done over the last few busy months that you should have. Some of these things like staining the deck & painting the exterior of your house can wait till the warmer weather but other things like door seals that no longer keep out the drafts are best done now during winter.


This is the time of the year when most people seem to go into ‘hibernation’ due to the winter cold-snap we are currently experiencing, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead and have all the little ‘niggling’ jobs around the house completed by Spring.Here are some examples of a winter maintenance job-list you may require throughout your home:

  • Add a fresh coat of paint where the paint is starting to look tired

  • Oil door hinges

  • Clean the exhaust fan and hood over the stove

  • Clean the exhaust fans in the bathrooms

  • Clean the windows

  • Check for air leaks under doors and around windows

  • Update your kitchen. A fresh coat of paint, new door handles can look a charm

  • Update your bathroom. New paint and accessories can make a big difference without doing a total new bathroom

  • Patch holes on your walls throughout the house

  • Paint doors and replace door handles

  • Tidy your yard and clear gutters

  • Repair damaged skirting boards

  • Swap paintings around the house to create a new feel

  • Add some new prints or paintings around the home to freshen it up

  • Restore water damaged walls and paint

  • Install cost-effective storage solutions in your garage

  • Re-seal mold build up areas around the kitchen and bathroom

  • Re-grout bathroom- tiled areas that are dull or have mold issues

  • Update light globes around your home to LED for high savings on your electricity bill

This list is by no-means extensive and if you have any areas around your home which you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact me.
