Drain cleaning may not be the most appealing or exciting job to do around your home, but it’s certainly one that has to be done. Over time, dirt and debris build-up in drains and pipes can lead to weakening of the structure and increase the risk of blockages and leaks. In addition to weekly and monthly maintenance of the drains in your kitchen and bathroom, it’s a good idea to give them a thorough spring cleaning every once in a while. Here are your options:
Lifting heavy objects is not something to be trifle with, it needs serious consideration. While some loads are physically impossible to hoist without the aid of lifting equipment, other things can be lifted but at what cost to your body and your safety? No matter what line of business you are in or how often you undertake DIY projects at home, it is virtually impossible to own every type of lifting or propping equipment you may need for all the jobs you do. Therefore it helps to know about the various types of equipment you can hire as the need arises.
Powered equipment such as chainsaws, hedge trimmers, and pole saws can be essential for keeping your yard or other outdoor space neat and trimmed back. This type of equipment however, can be dangerous if used incorrectly so it’s important to understand correct and safe usage techniques before you begin.
Many equipment items which are used on commercial job sites and even at private premises are subject to legally enforceable regulations. As an individual it is often difficult to be aware of what these regulations are. Unfortunately for the user and/or owner of the equipment, especially in a commercial environment, ignorance is not considered a defence and fines can apply.

We’ve all seen or heard the advertisements from the Government and various insurance companies in the media warning us that the storm season is upon us and to prepare our homes. While this is definitely important, here is some other useful information for when we get that massive deluge that, despite our best preparations, results in water where we do not want it. Having a little bit of knowledge about pumps can be a great help when your in a position where you have to hire one to help you out. When selecting a pump to move water from one area to another, there are 3 key factors that a hire company or salesperson will/should want to find out before recommending a pump and they are:
As we move towards Christmas things always seem to move just that little bit faster than normal. As timelines draw closer jobs can become rushed, people can become a little more impatient and some things can fall by the wayside. This season, don’t let safety become one of those … especially when working with tools and machinery.
Choosing not to fully understand the operating and safety instructions of a piece of equipment could result in swearing, a band aid, an ambulance ride and in some cases, the loss of life.
This Christmas season, love your family more than than your timeline.
Please read & understand operating & safety instructions.
With winter little more than a cool memory, it’s that time of year again when most homeowners like to get out in the garden and prepare it for the warm and fun-filled summer months ahead. Whether you simply enjoy getting out and working in your garden or have big plans for barbecues and garden parties this summer, we’ve put together our top tips to help you get your outdoor space in the best possible shape.
Spring is upon us again, the sun is warm and water out the tap is not so cold any more. Maybe it’s time to tick off a few of the tasks that often need doing after Winter like leaning your outdoor entertaining area ready for BBQs as well as the concrete/stone paths around the home. Give your driveway and even the house walls and roof a fresh look with some serious cleaning. If any of these jobs are on your list, it’s a good idea to consider hiring some commercial grade equipment to get the jobs done more effectively and more efficiently than using a broom and garden hose. Further good news is that if you choose to use a water pressure cleaner it will use less water than a regular garden hose. It’s a win-win situation.
