Signs of cracking and shrinkage are normal as your apartment has a ‘drying out’ period of between 9-12 months. Water has been absorbed during construction and it is important that the drying out period is gradual. This can be achieved by:

–  Ensuring that the property is well ventilated.

– Using the heating sparingly during the first few months.

– Reducing condensation as much as possible by covering pans whilst cooking, drying clothes in well ventilated rooms, closing kitchen/bathroom doors to prevent steam from travelling through the property, using extractors, wiping down moisture off surfaces and maintaining a low background heat.

If you are concerned about a crack, then please email a photo by logging an issue on the Seven Capital Information Hub and a response will be provided by our Aftersales team. Ordinarily cracks can be dealt with during normal decoration once the property has dried out, however large cracks of a certain thickness will be covered under warranty.

White deposits may appear on wall surfaces which is called efflorescence. Efflorescence can be caused by the natural seepage of salts used in the construction materials. This should not be of concern, as the marks can be wiped down with a dry stiff brush. It is important not to wash the marks, as it will make the issue worse.

When cleaning your laminate flooring there are a number of factors to consider. The floor is not waterproof, therefore, whilst any spills should be cleaned up quickly, nothing more than a damp cloth should be used to do this and any residue left over from cleaning up the spill should be dried off immediately. Do not use a wet mop on the laminate flooring, as this can cause water to seep into and under the laminate which will cause it to warp. Regularly remove dirt from the floor using a dry mop or a soft broom. Avoid using a vacuum cleaner on the laminate flooring, as this can cause scratches. Do not use harsh or scouring devices, as this will cause abrasion. Furniture should never be pushed or dragged across the floor, as this will cause damage.

Fire Strategy – Granville Lofts

Should you discover a fire, then please dial 999 immediately to report the situation to the emergency services.

It is important that you do not panic or stop to collect belongings. Please do not attempt to tackle the fire yourself by using the extinguishers, unless you are trained to do so.

It is essential that you familiarise yourself with the fire emergency procedure for the development, including details of where extinguishers and escape routes are located. Full details relating to the emergency procedure for the development are displayed throughout the communal areas. For further details, please contact the Managing Agent, Centrick Property.
