To ensure your garden cabin room or bbq shed is maintained and looking in tip-top condition at all times, there are some easy maintenance tasks which can be carried out on a regular basis. In this blog, we’re taking a look at some of these.
For example, it is important to routinely clean the outside of the structure with water. This can be done by hand on smaller cabins, or for larger varieties a hose pipe or jet wash could be used. This is a vital step in keeping log cabins free from moss or dirt.
Another chore to complete once the outside is clean is to apply a coat of UV protection. This should be specifically formulated to prevent sun damage; the treatment will also ensure that the wood remains looking fresh and polished.
Pruning back large bushes or removing plants which are located close to the likes of bespoke log cabins will prevent dampness from seeping into the building; normally about twelve inches distance from the log cabin wall is appropriate. These sorts of tasks can also be extended to clearing soil directly from the outside wall to avoid mud splashing up the walls during heavy rain.
Obstructions such as leaves, twigs and mud must be removed from guttering. This is because it is important to stop rainwater from overspilling onto the exterior walls. Rainwater may be diverted from gutters into a water in order to be used for other cleaning and maintenance tasks.
