Looking after your home
Damp and mould
As we head into winter, it is important to try and prevent damp and mould during the colder weather. Here are some handy tips to help you look after your property.
For your safety, please regularly test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to check they are in full working order. From time to time, you may need to replace the batteries and this remains your responsibility throughout the tenancy. If you have any concerns, please contact your landlord or property manager.
There has been an increase of bed bugs across Europe, so with this in mind, we recommend you take extra precautions. Regularly vacuum carpets, declutter rooms, use mattress protectors and wash bedding at a high temperature (60c). These simple actions can lower the risk of infestations in your home.
If there are any signs of bed bugs in your property you should contact your landlord or property manager immediately.
Our local experts have been experiencing the busiest lettings market to date with demand to live in Fulham and the surrounding areas at a record high, with no sign of slowing down. Over 70 per cent of tenants choose to renew their tenancies with us so if you love where you live and want to extend your stay beyond your contract end date, please let us know. On average, our landlords let out their properties for over eight years, so long-term tenancies and extensions to your current agreement are generally welcomed.
If you would like any advice on taking care of your home or extending your stay in the property, please call your local office where our team will be happy to help you.
