The spring time has us thinking about tackling a few of those long-postponed tasks around the home and garden. Whether it’s spring cleaning or re-decorating, now is a great time to get stuck in and improve your space. Here are a few tools and essentials that could really help you renew, repair and refresh your surroundings.
Nothing makes a room look brand new like a fresh coat of paint. If you’ve been considering a colour change or just touching up existing paintwork, don’t put it off any longer. We’ve got all the painting essentials you’ll need to get started. Try the new 5 Piece Paint Brush Set (82502), to help you tackle a range of painting projects. Each brush has a superior blend of natural bristle and synthetic filaments, which deliver excellent paint pick up and a smoother finish.
If you’ve got radiators to paint, getting the angle right can be tricky. Draper Tools now offers a 50mm Radiator Paint Brush (82556) with angled bristles making it ideal for awkward and hard to reach areas.
If you’re going for a complete change and getting rid of old wallpaper, the new Draper Tools 200W Wallpaper Steamer (84434) is a must-have for the fast, efficient removal of wallpaper. It has a tank capacity of 4.5L, providing 60 minutes of use. There’s also a 3M long steam hose that’s ‘cool-to-touch’ and is ready for steaming in around five minutes.
All repairs and refurbishments should start with accurate measurements and we’ve got several measuring tools to help, from tape measures to levels and laser distance measurers. The Combined Distance Estimator and Stud Detector with Laser Pointer (88988) is a handy instrument with a clear LCD display for measurements and audio function when studs in walls are detected. Its built-in calculator works out areas, volumes and metre/feet conversions.
If you’ve got work to do at height, whether it’s painting high walls or cleaning gutters, make sure you’ve got safe and secure equipment you can trust. From step stools to working platforms and ladders, you’ll find a reliable range from Draper Tools. Try our new 2 and 3 Step Aluminium Working Platforms (83997 & 83998), they’re made from a fully riveted extruded aluminium construction methods for added strength and durability.
Giving outside areas a deep clean after the wet winter months is a great way to refresh your surroundings ready for spring and summer. A pressure washer can blast away the dirt with far less effort than a hand wash and uses less water than washing with a hose too. Clean patios, decking, garden furniture or your car with the Draper Tools 1500w 230V Pressure Washer with Total Stop Feature (83405). It’s compact, efficient and the Total Stop Valve automatically activates and deactivates the high-pressure cleaner every time the trigger is operated. This increases the life of the motor and reduces electricity consumption too.
If you need a deep clean inside too, the Draper Tools 10L 1100W 230V Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner (06489) is ideal. Designed to pick up both wet and dry material it comes with a whole host of accessories for a spotless finish, including an upholstery attachment and a mini cleaning kit.
