Especially focusing on social landlords, residential landlords, build-to-rent, student living providers, and residential care providers.
Diving into the SAFEKEEP Model
Survey (S): Detailed Checks with Tailored Reporting
Our engineers conduct meticulous checks on your windows and doors. Firstly for correct operation. Then for compliance with health and safety regulations. Thirdly, signs of water and air ingress. We also consider any additional factors requested by our clients to furnish landlords with a detailed report. Not only does this report spotlight areas that need fixing. It also serves as a tangible audit trail, showcasing safety precautions undertaken. Finally, the report proposes potential enhancements for the windows.
Adjust (A): Preventing Small Issues from Becoming Major Ones
The emphasis here is on proactive care. Windows require continual small adjustments to windows and regular lubrication. This prevents minor issues from spiraling into bigger, costlier problems. Guarding against more significant repairs and, worst case, complete window replacements.
Fix (F): Swift and Uncomplicated Solutions
Our approach to fixing is straightforward and effective. Once a problem is identified, our team ensures it’s repaired efficiently. We prioritise the safety and functionality of the windows and doors to uphold the comfort and security of our residents.
Enhance (E): Advancing Beyond the Basic Functions
Enhancements go beyond mere fixes. It could involve elevating ventilation to combat issues like mould or damp. Or escalating the energy efficiency of windows. Or upgrading security features. In every enhancement action, the objective is to boost the existing functionality. Enhancements may also prolong the lifespan of your installations.

Understanding Regulations & Mitigating Risks with Mila’s SAFEKEEP Model
Regulatory compliance and risk mitigation in property management, especially in regards to window and door maintenance, is imperative for landlords to provide secure, safe, and habitable conditions for their tenants.
A Closer Look at Crucial Regulations for Landlords
- Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS): Ensuring windows and doors meet the minimum standards of HHSRS is crucial. The system assesses the risks posed by housing conditions to health and safety, with windows and doors being pivotal elements in these assessments.
- Building Regulations: These regulations establish the minimum standards for the design and construction of buildings. Work carried out on windows and doors, whether repairs, overhauls, or replacements, must align with these regulations to ensure safety and efficiency.
- Fire Safety Regulations: An adherence to Fire Safety Regulations SAFEKEEPs tenants in fire incidents, ensuring clear escape routes and maintaining fire doors to an optimal standard.
Risks Inherent to Windows and Doors
- Security Challenges: Burglary risks, often through windows and doors, necessitate robust security measures, like the incorporation of high-quality locks and security grilles.
- Fire Safety Management: Keeping egress points like windows and doors in top condition is vital to facilitate swift and safe exits during fire incidents.
- Fall Hazards Mitigation: The installation of safety features like window restrictors and safety rails ensures that risks of falls from windows, balconies, and adjacent stairs are minimised, SAFEKEEPing particularly vulnerable residents like children and the elderly.
Navigating through Implications
In the realm of large scale window maintenance and door repair for businesses, landlords must maintain a proactive stance, ensuring that each aspect of their property, especially windows and doors, adheres strictly to regulatory guidelines and is fortified against prevalent risks.
Failure to comply or adequately mitigate risks can have significant implications, from legal repercussions to jeopardised tenant safety and financial ramifications. Therefore, to navigate through the labyrinth of regulations and risk management effectively, it’s essential to adopt a model that ensures comprehensiveness and consistency in care and maintenance.
