Melbourne Is Back! And So Are Our Maintenance Services…

Oct 30, 2020

The shackles are off Melbourne, we are free! Well, free at least within a certain radius from our homes and only with a limited number of people. Oh, and let’s not forget the permanent face coverings, the work permits and check points… But apart from those few things, we are back. And it’s as if we’re waking from a slumber [nightmare] and this great city is coming to life again.

So, what should we do with this newfound freedom and lease of life? Do anything, do absolutely anything! With that sweet taste of spring in the air, it’s time to pack away the jigsaw puzzles, permanently delete the House Party app, and go and enjoy anything as close to normality as you can.

Maybe visit your local café, sit down, admire the swirling coffee art that up until now has been hidden under plastic takeaway cups lids. Dig out your myki and hop on a tram, become a tourist in your town instead of somewhere abroad. Book a trip to the hairdressers and get a snazzy haircut that makes you feel brand new again. Call your cleaner and gardener, tell them you’ve missed them, and let them know they’ve got some serious work to catch up on.

And while you’re at it, maybe you could look into getting your security system serviced. You see, we’ve had to put maintenance on hold for a while this year and have concentrated on essential system repairs and upgrades, but properly maintaining a security system is an essential measure to preserving the safety and security for your workplace or business. We’ve even written a blog on the reason why that you can read here: prevention is better than cure

If you’re an existing customer of ours and your maintenance is overdue, you’ll be receiving a friendly reminder from us soon. And if you’re not sure what maintenance entails or what’s required to be done, just click on the link below and we’ll get in touch.

Whatever you choose to do post-lockdown though, we hope you enjoy it. For us, we’re going to see friends again. We’re going to put that extra bit of bump into our elbows when we meet. And we’re going to let that big smile that’s hidden behind the masks sparkle in our eyes [sorry, I’m getting carried away here 😭].

Enjoy Melbourne!
