When you move out and into a new location the last thing you want is to regret your decision. There are some things to keep an eye out for, in doing so you can make life a lot less stressful. Below are our top 5 ways to know the condition of any living space when inspecting the property. Happy moving!
The moment you step foot inside the property you should take note of any unhealthy odours. Mould is extremely harmful (nasal congestion, coughing, respiratory infections etc), it should not be taken lightly. Some mould can be treated if it’s not at its’ worst. Check inside cupboards, bathrooms, poorly ventilated rooms. Beware of any fragrances or incense which may have been sprayed/lit before your arrival, this is just a mask and is typically used to fool you.
- Check the Roofing.
Broken tiles, broken or missing downpipes and guttering aren’t always a bad sign, but sometimes they can lead to problems further down the track and be quite tricky and expensive to locate i.e. interior water leakages causing unstable plasterboard, brickwork, rendered walls, resulting in mould growth, rising damp, cracking and/or peeling ceilings and walls.
- Bubbling Vinyl Flooring.
Check out the vinyl flooring to make sure there isn’t any blistering or bubbling, as the vinyl comes away from the surface it allows dust, bugs and household bacteria to gather underneath.
- Fibro (Fibros Cement Sheet) a.k.a Asbestos.
Fibro was widely used from the 1950s and is still being used today, in non-asbestos form. In warmer weather, fibro houses can become extremely hot to live in and in the cooler months, very cold. Houses constructed in the 1950′s, 60′s and 70′s can contain asbestos fibro.
- Water Stains.
Water spots and stains are mostly found on ceilings. The stained area can range in different colours i.e yellow, brown or copper coloured. The area may appear wet or dry, these water stains are one of the most common sites for House Painters, they can be treated, prepared and painted without too much hassle.
