It's Twelfth Day today (Sunday 6th January), which means that if you haven't taken down your Christmas decorations as yet, and you're not planning on doing so today, you could be in for some bad luck! For it is a belief in many countries that it is unlucky to leave decorations up after today.
However, having taken down my Christmas tree and wreath yesterday, we were left with, frankly, a very sad-looking living room. No more twinkling lights; no more shiny baubles; just an empty space where that tempting stack of presents once sat. And, is that a scuff on the wall? Will that infernal tap ever stop dripping? How long have those bathroom tiles needed re-grouting? Suddenly all of your house's little imperfections, formerly hidden or ignored because who wants to think about DIY over Christmas? are literally waving at you, begging to be sorted.
But what to do if you're not a DIY-enthusiast? Simple – ask one of Bishop's Stortford's recommended tradespeople to help!
From repairing that annoying leaky tap to complete central heating installation and bathroom replacements, choose Aquatech or Ronayne Heating & Plumbing for all your plumbing needs. Covering Bishop's Stortford and the surrounding areas, both are Gas Safe registered, ensuring your total peace of mind.
Whether it's the exterior of your home that needs some TLC, or your rooms could do with a lick of paint, Regency Property Maintenance is the name to choose. Serving domestic and commercial clients, the maintenance company offers a huge range of reliable, experienced services, including painting and decorating, plastering, general maintenance, kitchen and bathroom installations, carpentry and joinery and much more.
Sometimes it's not just the interior of your home that could do with some attention. It may be January at the moment, but there is hope of a summer with, wait for it, sun! Add valuable outside living space with a decked area, courtesy of Regency Property Maintenance or Mark's Garden Services.
And talking of Mark's Garden Services, the most loved Bishop's Stortford business is an expert in garden clearances, makeovers, driveways and block paving, fencing and installing turf.
