Maintain and protect
Maintain your home to protect it from wear and tear, and to make sure small problems don’t become big ones. If you do repairs as you notice them, such as fixing a leaky external tap, you may prevent major damage in the future.
Protect your greatest asset
Maintaining your home can help protect your home from subsidence and termites.
You also need to maintain your home to keep your insurance under the Queensland Home Warranty Scheme—your contractor isn’t responsible for fixing damage caused by lack of maintenance.
