ELECTRICS

Most items in the home run on electric which is why we include cover for electrical emergencies with Reactive HomeCare. 
Electrical emergencies such as tripped breakers (which can result in a property being without any of the following; hot water, heating, cooking facilities, lights, appliances) and loss of power can mean that the property has nothing at all. 
This can be a worrying time however, we have electricians on hand for your peace of mind.

GAS

If you smell gas, you should call 0800 111 999 so that the leak can be sourced.

If the leak is at a certain point on the pipework, this is not always your responsibility therefore it is important that Cadent (formally National Grid) attend to find the location of this.

Once the location has been found and it is deemed to fall under your responsibility, you need to find a trustworthy gas engineer to rectify the issue as Cadent will not attempt repairs within the property. 

This is where Reactive HomeCare can benefit you as we can attend after the issue has been located. 

WATER

An escape of water can be a traumatic experience, not to mention the damage that water can cause to a property if left. 
Our engineer will be able to attend the property to isolate the leak and take appropriate action to resolve the issue with either a temporary repair (if parts are required) or complete a full repair.

LOCKS

Lost key? Damaged lock? Key stuck in the barrel? Snapped key?
These are all scenarios that we have heard time and time again which is why we will cover access issues within Reactive HomeCare.
If a lock change is required, then our engineer will provide the new key to the resident and also bring one back to our office ready to drop off at your letting agent/nominated location (distances may apply).

HEATING/HOT WATER

Nobody wants to come home to a boiler that isn't working leaving you without access to heating or hot water. 
Reactive HomeCare will be able to attend to identify the issue and if possible, repair this there and then. 
Sometimes, boilers can need parts that are not available out of hours so a temporary repair will be carried out (where possible) until the part can be collected the next day. 
Rest assured that Reactive Maintenance Team will do everything they can to restore the heating and/or hot water to the property as quickly and efficiently as possible.
