Home Living : September 1st 2009
HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, September 1, 2009 1 Website is a one-stop fittings shop An interactive website designed to inspire homeowners searching for electrical fittings is available through HPM. The website hpm.com.au is an ideal reference tool for helping home renovators and builders decide which electrical fittings will most suit their requirements. By travelling through the interactive house, room by room, homeowners have access to many tips and suggestions such as location, quantity and height of power outlets as well as details about suitable HPM products. Beneficial to homeowners, builders and electricians, the information is easily accessible and provides a snapshot of the wide range of products available. This information can also be shared remotely so that ideas can be further discussed offline. As well, product brochures from garden lights to plugs and sockets or smoke alarms and exhaust fans can be downloaded from the website and reviewed at leisure. With more than 4000 products in its portfolio, HPM has also developed an easy reference handbook for homeowners. The HPM Homeowners Guide to All Things Electrical acts as a comprehensive planning guide when redesigning or renovating electrical accessories in the home. For more information or to order a catalogue call 1300 369 777 or visit hpm.com.au ............................................. Clear the decks » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING CARING for decks, gazebos and pergolas should be part of the spring cleaning checklist, says Western Red Cedar Export Association director Cees de Jager. ''Routine maintenance. . . can be done easily,'' he said. ''All you need is a garden sprayer, bleach and a hose.'' Top five spring cleaning tips: Cleaning the deck Inspect for build-up of dirt and sweep debris, cleaning between horizontal surfaces. This will help rainfall drain and allow air to flow between the boards, limiting the moisture collecting on top; Get rid of mould and mildew Killing mould and mildew is important, particularly on rough surfaces. Use three parts water and one part oxygenated bleach applied with a garden sprayer. Rinse with clean water; Skip Pressure Washing Do not pressure-wash timber. It can disrupt the cedar's natural moisture resistance by pushing water into it; Elevate planters Setting and leaving planters directly on timber surfaces can stain. Elevate planters from deck surfaces so moisture can more easily evaporate from planks; and Care for gazebos, pergolas and sidings Treat as a deck but treat the walls or structures with the oxygenated bleach solution if needed. built-in WARDROBES FACTORY & SHOWROOM Unit 1, 183-185 McCredie Rd, Guildford 9632 5444 Lic.
