1. Clear your roof gutters of leaves and debris. If rain can’t easily get away it may cause roof leaks.
2. People generally keep their washing machine taps on. Remember to turn these off before going away. In the unlikely event that the washing machine hose bursts you will avoid major damage.
3. If someone is house sitting for you, take some time to show them where the water mains are located, just in case they need to turn them off quickly.
4. Always keep a list of your trusted trades close to the phone for quick and easy access in case of an emergency.
