Cyclical maintenance

We regularly carry out work on homes to make sure that they are safe and in a good state of repair. This includes cyclical maintenance, such as:

  • Servicing gas appliances
  • Servicing fire extinguishers and fire alarms
  • Regularly testing electrical wiring
  • Painting and decorating the common areas of a block of flats
  • Painting and decorating the outside of flats and houses

Planned-maintenance

We also invest in a programme of planned maintenance to upgrade and improve properties. This includes work like:

  • Replacement windows
  • Replacement roofs
  • Electrical re-wiring
  • Replacing boiler/central heating systems
  • Major repairs to shared areas (e.g. paths, steps, fences)

We will, of course, always tell you if and when any work is planned, and how long the work will take. 

Gas Servicing

Under the Gas Safety Regulations 1998, all landlords must make sure that gas appliances are serviced each year and gas carrying pipework is safety checked. We are responsible for the following;

  • Making sure gas appliances and flues are maintained in a safe condition.
  • Making sure yearly maintenance and safety checks are carried out on or before the 12 month anniversary of the last gas service.
  • Making sure we keep records.
  • Making sure all safety checks are carried out by a Gas Safe registered installer.

Faulty gas appliances, which are not regularly maintained can become dangerous and give off carbon monoxide. You cannot see, taste or smell this gas, but it can kill. There are about 30 deaths a year as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning from gas appliances. For your own safety you should not sleep in a room containing an open flue gas or solid fuel appliance. If in doubt please contact Arch and a member of our team will be able to give further advice.

You must allow us into your home to carry out the annual gas safety check to protect you and your family.If you fail to keep appointments for servicing, we will take legal action to access your home.
