EMERGENCIES / URGENT REPAIRS

Got an emergency and don't know who to call for help?

Fire

  • Act fast. Close the doors if you are able to as this will delay the spread of fire.

  • Leave the building quickly, get everybody out and call 999.

  • If a door feels warm, do not open it.
  • Your fire assembly point is the street out the front of the property.
  • If you are cut off by fire:

    • Smoke is as deadly as flames. Close the door and any other openings and block cracks with bedding etc.

    • If the room becomes smokey, stay low, it’s easier to breathe.

    • Think about making your escape quickly. If the window is jammed, break it, remove jagged glass from the lower sill and cover it up with a blanket.

    • Try to attract attention.

    • If your bedroom is on an upper floor, drop cushions or bedding to the ground to break your fall.

    • Get out feet first and lower yourself to the full length of your arms before dropping.


Water Leak

  • In the event of a water leak, switch off all water using the stopcock.  Call us immediately on 07500 220715 or 07557 731755.

Heating / Hot Water

  • If the boiler is not providing heating or hot water, we may need to call an engineer. 

  • You may be able to diagnose the issue yourself by:

    • Checking the programmer set-up and changing to be on constant

    • Re-setting the boiler

    • Bleeding the radiators
