W hether landscaping a back yard, renovating a home or working on a commercial building site sometimes you don’t have as much space to access the property as you’d like.

For many households, Spring Cleaning has become something of a passion for homeowners. Over the years, the nature of spring cleaning has changed quite a lot. It wasn’t long ago that spring cleaning was something most of us would reluctantly do only out of necessity.
Now, however, being responsible adults, spring cleaning has become one of the most important dates in our calendars. When spring cleaning is done right, it can bring enormous benefits to homeowners. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can make the most out of your next spring clean.
Fifteen years ago on any given weekend in spring or summer, you would be likely to hear the unmistakable sound of a nail gun echoing across the suburbs. Thud, as the nail was hammered home in one shot and hiss, as the air was expelled from the chamber. Replacing or erecting a new timber paling fence was a task that many confident, and some not so confident, DIYers would attempt to finish in a weekend.
If you’re a professional contractor or a DIYer, knowing which type of grinder you need for a particular project can be a challenge considering all the different options on the market. But once you have the basics down, finding the machine that will work for what you’re trying to do should be a breeze. Here is a rundown of the different types of floor grinders on the market and how they should be used.
Hand Held Grinders
Hand held grinders will usually be used for smaller grinding applications such as between doorways, short joins in slabs which have become raised, against walls or in hard to reach areas. Typically hand held grinders will be either a 175mm Surface Grinder or a 125mm Surface Grinder . Both of these are very aggressive and are suitable for light levelling work, surface cleaning and coating removal … even epoxy!
It has been said that moving home is one of the most stressful things we do in life, right up there with getting married / divorced or starting a new job. There is a lot to think about but the good news is that you can minimise the stress by making sure you are adequately prepared for the big day. When planning, consider the information below to assist with packing up your belongings and transporting them to your new home.
DIY Removals Vs. Professional Movers
There are plenty of instances where a DIY removal is not such a bad idea. If you are only moving a relatively short distance and you don’t have tons of stuff, you can probably hire an 8x5m Box Trailer, or even a smaller equipment trailer and a cargo trolley to get the job done with a couple of strong mates to give you a helping hand. There is also the option of hiring a small pantec truck which can be driven on a car licence. If you choose this option, shop around and get one with an electric tail lift. This will save you heaps of lifting. On the other hand, if you are moving a long distance or even interstate, it makes sense to use a professional removal company.
Party planning doesn’t need to be tricky, it just requires a little forethought. Depending on the type
of party you have in mind, you may need to hire tables and chairs or even a basic stage for the
entertainment. Making a checklist so that you don’t leave anything out is a great idea. Suddenly
realising an hour before the guests arrive that you forgot to order a toilet trailer is probably a bit late
in the day to fix what will almost certainly be a very big problem, especially if you did not intend for
guests to use the facilities inside your home.
