11 Tips To Help You Prepare For The Storm Season

  1. Check your gutters to see if they are leaks or structural damage
  2. Check gutters to see if there are leaves and rubbish that may have been blown in since the last storm season
  3. Check downpipes for blockages
  4. Get tree branches trimmed that are too close to the home. This prevents leaves falling into the gutters. Also prevents rodents enter the roof space via the gutters
  5. Get a licensed commercial/ residential plumber to call over to your property or home and down a thorough checkup on the gutters, downpipes and drains around the home.
  6. Check your insurance policy to see if you are covered for storm damage

  8. Learn where the power, gas and water mains are so that you can turn these services off in emergencies.
  9. Pay attention to weathers alerts on the net, radio and TV.

Community Involvement in Northside Brisbane

The start of November has been very busy and also enjoyable for us here @ Plumbaround Pty Ltd.  We have been inundated with emergencies from blocked drains to severe water leaks and failing hot water systems.  Our plumbers have been kept ever so busy and run off their feet (no complaints here though).

14940059_1387373071286710_2392171210686104314_oTuesday was enjoyed by all with an afternoon off work to celebrate the Melbourne Cup race.  We put on food to share and drinks for those that work for us, support our business and work in conjunction with us.   Many thanks to the Aspley Central Tavern for having our function and the wonderful atmosphere and food!

This morning (Thursday) was a business meeting with the NOW – Northwest Business Group and it is always lovely to hear from like minded individuals and businesses who want to be involved in their local community.  As business owners, we all have a commitment to bring about change and raise awareness in our local community for issues that are important for everyone.  It warms  my heart to see everyone wanting to be involved.

As a plumbing company, we come into contact with so many people, businesses and community groups.  We @ Plumbaround Pty Ltd are always looking to get involved and support those around us.  We are very blessed to live and work in an area where the community is so important.   Go Northside Brisbane!!!!
