Home Living : April 12th 2011
4 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 12, 2011 Consumers urged to be careful » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Easter is another holiday involving lots of shopping. The long break gives retailers a good time and reason to put up a sale. If you celebrate Easter, early preparations can help you save and find some really good deals. With shopping on the list, Fair Trading has again urged consumers to do their homework and be careful. NSW Fair Trading says consumers can get it wrong many times but educated consumers have a far better chance of getting their money's worth. The department receives many complaints concerning refunds or returning of unwanted gifts or something broken. But many consumers run into problems if they don't do their homework before shopping. Many consumers believe they are automatically entitled to a refund but this is not always the case. Legally, refunds are only available if the goods are faulty or defective, different to the sample shown or described in advertising, or not fit for purpose intended. Many retailers offer refund conditions above and beyond their legal requirements as a gesture of goodwill. These policies help maintain customer loyalty but some smaller retailers can't afford to be so generous. Consumers should always check with the trader about the specific conditions of their refund policy before they buy anything. Before handing over your cash, research the product's features and shop around to compare quality and price. If you've found the same item for a cheaper price at a different store or you no longer want it, that doesn't guarantee you a refund. Fair Trading says it is illegal for a trader to display signs such as ''no refunds or no refund after seven days or exchange''. But the most important lesson to remember when shopping this Easter is always keep your receipts. Without a receipt it is difficult to prove your point.

The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
