Maintain your home


It should be easy and worry free for you to live in a Balder home. Therefore, below you will find a series of maintenance videos and guides to help you find assistance maintaining your home.

Tips and tricks for heating

There is a difference between underfloor heating and radiators when it comes to heating your home. If you have underfloor heating, it's important to be patient when looking at the display because it takes time for the temperature to adjust.

We encourage you to ventilate your home a few times a day so that the air in the home is always fresh.

Tips and tricks for floors

All Balder properties have lacquered wooden floors. You can take the best possible care of them by:

  • Using the right cleaning detergent 
  • Using a microfiber mop
  • Avoiding excessive water on the floor - wipe up spills promptly
  • Using felt pads/floor mats under furniture
  • Using a plastic mat under your office chair

The brake on the balcony door keeps the door in place during calm weather. If it's windy, the door should be closed to avoid damage to the balcony door since the brake will not be strong enough to hold the door.
