  • What To Do If You Think Your House May Flood

    Floods have become a regular feature of life in certain areas of the UK. Knowing how to deal with them and having plans in place in order to ensure that you are fully prepared to deal with a flood should you happen to live in an area affected by them is essential. It is not possible to completely flood-proof a house. If there is enough water around, it will find its way inside. However, here are some practical steps you can take. Fit non-return valves on drains and pipes. This is a very simple measure which helps to prevent sewage returning to the house along the pipes from the toilet and sinks. This can help to significantly limit the damage to your property after a flood has passed and is relatively cheap to put in place. Varnish wooden skirting boards. This does not water-proof the wood entirely, and it is less effective than fitting plastic skirting boards, but it is much cheaper and has the added advantage of making your home look good. Get high shelves. A fairly obvious tip, this one, but ensuring that your important documents are kept well out of the potential reach of any floodwater is essential. Every year people lose their insurance documents to the floods, and this seriously hinders the progress of their claim. Plan ahead and make certain this does not happen to you. When you first realise that your home is in an area affected by a flood warning, it can be very easy to give in to the urge to panic. This causes far more problems than taking a few minutes to think through your options, and having a pre-arranged flood plan helps you to avoid panic too. Put together a flood kit — a waterproof container which contains your home insurance documents, a torch, warm clothing, a first-aid kit and a supply of any prescription medicines you take, bottled water and non-perishable food. When you realise that your home is in imminent danger of flooding, turn off your gas and electricity. Move your family, pets, and flood kit to a safe position — usually the top floor or attic. Place sandbags (use pillowcases or plastic bags filled with earth in place of sandbags if you don't have any) around the entrances of your house. What To Do If You Think Your House May FloodIf you have time after sorting all of that out, move any expensive equipment out of the reach of the flood water, and consider moving your car to higher ground. If a flood strikes, it is worth considering whether or not you have any vulnerable neighbours who might need some extra help to deal with this emergency. Community spirit is never more important than when nature hits the community as hard as it can. Floods are one of the most devastating natural events to hit anywhere in the UK. Having a plan in place to deal with flooding can help to make it less devastating.

  • Part P In Your Home

    What do you know about 'Part P'?

    'Part P' is the area of Building Regulations covering electrical installations in dwellings. If these standards are not met, not only are we at risk of there being electrical hazards in our homes, it could jeopardise your mortgage agreement and home insurance. The good news is you don't need to know a huge amount about 'Part P', we can leave the details to the Qualified Electricians. In actual fact, we've managed to squeeze the most important bits that home owners need to know, into this two minute video. Helen explains the risks of not complying with 'Part P' and then introduces Chris. Chris is a Qualified Electrician who talks you through what steps an electrician will take in order to meet these regulations. Then he explains how a record is kept against your property, showing that work has been completed in accordance with the Building Regulations 'Part P'. This week the temperature has started dropping as winter is nearing and we've had to put the heating on in the office. We thought it might be useful for our customers to know about the range of thermostats out there and the different benefits they each offer. With this in mind we are going to be filming product reviews on 10 different thermostats that we stock online. Here they all are in no particular order.

    1 Danfoss FP975 Two Channel Full Programmer 2 Salus ST620WBC Wireless Programmable Room Thermostat compatible with Worcester Bosch Boilers

  • Home Security Month

    Statistics show that there are 20% more burglaries during the winter months so no wonder that October, when the clocks go back, has been named as National Home Security Month. The initiative is supported by Yale, the security specialist and aims to increase awareness of the importance of good home security in the fight against criminals. Are you doing enough to keep your home and property safe? Here is a look at the main themes of this year’s initiative, along with some helpful tips and advice.  


    Secure Doors and Windows

    Most burglars will not smash a window to get into your home. Instead they will often try to force their way in via the frame. This is why it is important to ensure that your windows are correctly fitted and that they have at least one locking device. Keep doors locked at all times even if you are just popping out to hang your laundry on the line. It may come as a surprise to also learn that you should change your locks every five years to maintain maximum security. You should also change the locks as soon as you move into a new property, even if it has only just been built, as you can never be sure who has managed to get hold of the keys to your doors. Ensure your locks are fitted by professional locksmiths and that all products meet the current industry standards.

    Protect ValuablesYale, Digital Home Safe, Valuables, Lock, jewellery safe, cash safe, secure,

    Protect your property and items such as Christmas presents, by following some simple security steps at home. Do not leave valuable items on display and have blinds or curtains to prevent strangers from looking in and assessing your home’s contents. Install a safe for important documents and expensive jewellery for example and ensure that you are extremely careful about who knows the combination.   Two safes we have available are;The Yale Home Digital Safe and The Yale Compact Digital Safe

    Defender_-_Task_Light_01_-_728_x_945Outside Security

    Outside lighting is especially important during the winter months when you may leave and return from work in the dark. Effective lighting is a great deterrent for burglars and can also make you feel safer and more confident when moving around outdoors at night. Ensure that outbuildings and garden gates have adequate locks and that the structures themselves are secure. There is no point having a new padlock fitted on your shed if the door is hanging off its hinges.NBHW Consider your outdoor environment at home. Noisy gravel and prickly bushes are disliked by burglars for obvious reasons, making them perfect for helping to keep your property secure. Do not leave bins and other items close to gates and fences if you do not want intruders to use them to climb over and consider starting your own Neighbourhood Watch scheme if there is not one already.

    Future Home Security

    Consider updating your home security system to make the most of technological advances. Smartphone home security is an increasingly popular choice and can offer everything from lock control capabilities to wireless camera feeds and motion sensors. These are generally incredibly easy to operate and can provide a real sense of security at home. All in all the initiatives taken up by National Home Security Month will hopefully reduce burglaries by a significant amount. It is important to follow the steps mentioned in this article which will help in keeping your property and all of your personal valuables safe. For more information and guidance you can visit

  • Gas Safety Tips & Advice

    Here at JT Atkinson we are supporting Gas Safety Week by releasing a new video which focuses on how to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. This is one of several risks associated with the use of domestic gas appliances and Gas Safety Week, which runs between September 15 and September 21, 2014, aims to raise awareness of the issues in a bid to improve safety for the residents of Britain’s 23 million gas-fuelled households.

    Buy your Carbon Monoxide Alarm here

    Top Safety Tips So what can you do to stay safe if you have gas appliances in your home? It is vital that you have safety checks carried out once a year and have your appliances serviced regularly. This work, and any other repairs or modifications, should only be carried out by a Gas Safe-registered engineer.   When your chosen engineer comes to your home, check his Gas Safe identification card to make sure that he is suitably qualified. If he does not have one, send him away. If you discover a gas engineer working who is not registered, report him to the Gas Safe Register by calling 0800 408 5500, as what he is doing is against the law. Even if he does have a card, make sure that you read the back to check that he is actually qualified to do the specific job you need him to carry out. Increase Your Understanding One of the first steps to staying safe is to understand the risks. These include carbon monoxide poisoning, leaks, explosions and fires. It is also important to know the signs to look for that which will tell you that an appliance is not working as it should. These include hobs which have lazy yellow flames rather than crisp blue ones, an increase in condensation in a room and black stains appearing around appliances. Only use appliances for the jobs they were originally designed to do. For example, do not try to heat a room using a gas oven, and never use a gas-fuelled barbeque indoors. Ensure you have a working carbon monoxide detector in your home and know the signs that the batteries are running low. Carbon monoxide is a colourless and odourless gas, and it can kill if left undetected. Make sure that your appliances have adequate ventilation, which will help to keep them burning correctly, and ensure that you have not blocked any of the air vents which have been placed around your home so that your appliances get the air supply they need.   Find Out More This newly released video urges everyone to ensure that they have fully operational carbon monoxide detectors in their home. Ideally, there should be one for every fuel-burning appliance, such as hobs, water heaters, log burners and boilers, and these should be placed between one and three metres away from each appliance. The video explains how to check that an alarm is working properly and describes what to do if carbon monoxide is detected, along with highlighting some warning signs to look out for that could indicate a problem with your appliances.

  • MRI Scanner Appeal

    JT Atkinson's have donated a signed & framed Manchester United football shirt to be auctioned to help raise funds for Northallerton's Friarage Hospital League of Friends MRI Scanner Appeal.   The authenticated shirt, signed by Sir Alex Ferguson's 2012/13 Premier League winning squad, which has a recommended insurance value of £3000.00 will be auctioned as part of the Northallerton Charity Football Reunion event on Friday the 26th of September, where event co-organiser Keith Caygill is expecting to attract bids from fans seeking an item of Manchester United memorabilia. The auction will be conducted by Mike Darwin from the Northallerton based MW Darwin & Sons at the event at The Troubadour in Northallerton, there will also be live music by The Beer Pigs, a Disco, buffet and a raffle. Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased by calling 07711 091406   Northallerton's Friarage Hospital League of Friends are raising money to purchase the essential piece of equipment for the hospital that currently doesn't have one, meaning that patients from North Yorkshire are having to make the journey to Middlesbrough. Having an MRI scanner will not only provide diagnostic services closer to home, it also means that the future growing demand can be met, increasing the capacity across the organisation.   So far £947,000.00 has been raised towards the target of £2,000,000.00 Find out more about the Friarage Scanner Appeal  

  • Proud of our Pride runners

    JTA staff run the Tees Pride 10K for Breast Cancer Care

    Yesterday twenty of our lovely staff were among thousands who took part in the annual Middlesbrough 10K.

    They were lucky enough to have a bit of sunshine and a large turnout cheering them on as they gathered at the start line in Acklam.

    The Tees Pride 10K, which celebrated its ten year anniversary this year, was ran both competitively and for fun with many people running to raise money for charity.

    The JTA team were running for Breast Cancer Care in memory of Andrea Edgar who sadly lost her battle with the terrible disease in May.

    So far the team have raised nearly £3000 and there is still time to donate if you head over to our Just Giving page. Our Managing Director, Edwin Atkinson, has kindly promised to match the total raised (up to £5000) so the team are extremely determined to reach their £5000 goal.

    Despite some very sore legs this morning our runners are already talking about next year and we couldn’t be prouder of their efforts. Well done everyone!
