There have been a fair number of challenges in these 3 months between the ongoing severe weather and the ever popular load shedding!
We urge to to take as many precautionary measure as you can to help prevent unnecessary damages. Here are some ideas:
– Get good quality surge protectors. One is not always home when the power goes off to unplug electronics, appliances, etc. A quality surge protector will go a long way to ensuring your goods don’t get zapped when the power comes back on. See the article at the end of this newsletter.
– Do regular maintenance on your property including clearing out gutters, checking soil build up around walls and fences. Leaves and debris build up and easily block drainage gutters during heavy rains, causing them to either overflow where they shouldn’t or simply break! We have an interesting article on the wall / fence and soil article so you can read more on this below.
