Clear away those autumn blues with Hire A Hubby

Autumn blues are a thing of the past with a little help from Hire A Hubby.

Regardless of whether you’re a summer or winter person, autumn is a time for everyone to enjoy. So, instead of wasting those warm days tackling those odd (and sometimes terrifying) jobs which have accumulated over the warmer months, let our Hubbies do all the hard work for you.

At Hire A Hubby, our Hubbies are equipped to deal with the simplest of tasks such as raking up all those leaves, mowing the lawn right through to trimming and pruning those garden hedges and bushes.

If autumn brings a backyard full of leaves and debris that sends your head into a panic, worry no more our Hubbies are here to help.

But our Hubbies’ talent doesn’t end there, they can also help you do those jobs you’ve been putting off inside the home that could lead to additional problems down the track.

As the temperature drops and the cooler nights set in its only natural that you’ll be reaching for those electrical blankets and heaters to warm up, but it’s important to be safe.

Sunday April 1, 2012 was National Smoke Alarm Day, which means if you haven’t changed your batteries or installed a smoke alarm in your home yet, now is the time to do so. Give our Hubbies a call to install a smoke alarm in your home and sleep easier knowing you and your family are protected throughout the cooler months with a smoke alarm that has been professionally installed.

Impromptu rain showers in autumn can also cause mould to build up around your home, which if left untreated can cause serious health concerns for you and your family such as asthma attacks, allergies and dermatitis – especially in young children. To ensure you and your family are not exposed to any nasty pollutants, give our Hubbies a call and get that mould and mildew cleaned away.

Autumn is also a great time to do that painting you’ve been meaning to get done. Don’t put it off any longer – give our Hubbies a call for an obligation free quote. Our Hubbies can give your whole house a fresh new look inside and out!

To clear away the autumn blues, give our Hubbies a call on 1800 803 339 and they’ll be happy to help.

School holiday fun: Hire A Hubby tips for building a backyard sandpit

With school holidays in full swing, your kids will have endless amounts of energy and be craving excitement and adventure. A sandpit is a great area for your kids to play in where you can keep an eye on them right at home.

Before building a sandpit for your kids, our Hubbies recommend you consider the following points:

  • Location is key
  •  Remember to consider the surrounding plants and trees, sun exposure and how the area copes with harsh weather conditions.
  • Building a sandpit close to the home and in sight of windows means you are able to easily monitor your child’s safety while they play.
  • Don’t waste lawn in the area you build the sandpit. You can re-use the grass to revamp worn areas of your lawn or put it upside down in your compost heap.
  • Look out for drainage problems as clay or hard pan subsoil can cause drainage troubles. Our Hubbies can provide the solutions to these problems.
  • Install a lid or cover. Having our Hubbies build a lid or cover for your sandpit will keep foreign objects and neighbourhood animals out of the sand and ensure the area remains a safe place for your children to play.
  • Make sure your sandpit is built with pre-treated wood that can withstand changing weather conditions.

If you’re worrying about what to do with your sandpit when your kids get older – don’t. Our Hubbies regularly convert sandpits into flower beds or vegetable patches, so don’t let this hold you back.

If you love the idea of your children having their very own sandpit, but the thought of constructing it yourself seems like an impossible feat, give our Hubbies a call on 1800 803 339 and they’ll be happy to help.

Time to hop into all those Easter holiday jobs

 

It’s that time of year again when our floppy eared friend is due to make an appearance and kids and chocolate lovers alike are eager with anticipation to discover what spoils the Easter Bunny brings come Sunday April 8.

The Easter Bunny will be visiting homes across Australia within the next week, so now is the time to make sure your home is prepared for all those expected (and some not so expected) house guests.

Hire A Hubby can help ease the stress when it comes to doing all those odd jobs around the house, which means you have more time to do the things you’d rather be doing this Easter break like planning an Easter egg hunt with the kids or firing up the barbeque and sharing some laughs with family and friends.

Our Hubbies are your go-to- men for all those pesky jobs that always seem to creep up and threaten to consume your precious holiday time. Our Hubbies can help make life easier these Easter holidays by assisting with:

  • Backyard maintenance
  • Repairing the deck
  • Cleaning up the backyard
  • Painting the pergola
  • Cleaning the gutter.

Easter’s autumn weather also reminds us that winter is fast approaching and it’s important to ensure your home is ready to cope with those cooler days and cold nights.

As autumn brings additional leaves and foliage, our Hubbies also recommend cleaning out those gutters, which if not sorted out can lead to additional damage and expense down the track.

Autumn is also a great time to paint that pergola and impress your holiday guests and friends. Call your local Hire a Hubby and give your pergola the face lift it needs so you can entertain with confidence.

We all know the holidays mean spending time outside with the kids, and we want peace of mind that our children are safe when they are playing in the backyard and enjoying the Easter break.

It‘s so easy for the backyard to quickly resemble a jungle and for leftover material and junk to become potentially hazardous areas for children.

If the thought of tackling your backyard this Easter is enough to send you running for the hills, then give our Hubbies a call and ensure your Easter egg hunt is filled with fun and adventure and not scraped knees and tears from all those unmanageable backyard hazards.
