Make safe services for residential, business and community properties

Trades Make Safe understands that an emergency event can occur at any time of the day or night. A fast response by us can often reduce the level of property damage sustained and therefore the cost and time to repair.

Trades Make Safe provides 24/7 make-safe services for residential, business and community properties. This covers damage caused by incidents such as vandalism, burglary, rain, storm, fire, flood, vehicle intrusion or any other natural or man-made cause.

Our experienced and well-equipped team member/s will arrive on site promptly for urgent works, take before-and-after photos of every job, get the work done safely and quickly, and provide an inspection/summary report within 24 hours.

The types of services provided include:

  • Making a premises secure (e.g. boarding up broken windows or damaged doors, covering missing roof tiles)
  • Making a premises safe (e.g. removing broken glass, installing acrow props to support a damaged structure, removing debris, containing suddenly exposed asbestos)
  • Halting water leaks in structures/roofs (e.g. replacing damaged tiles, using silicon to plug leaks in broken tiles in the absence of immediate replacement materials, securing special-purpose tarpaulins)
  • Temporary fencing for an unsafe structure and erecting warning signs
  • Emergency plumbing services for major problems
  • Emergency electrical services for major problems
  • Removal of a tree/tree branches that have fallen on a property, before doing the make-safe work needed
  • Urgent replacement of broken or damaged items (e.g. windows, locks)

Make-safe teams for disaster areas

Local resources in a disaster area are usually overwhelmed by the immediate workload. Trades Make Safe can assemble experienced teams of single-type or multi-type tradesmen who will travel to affected areas to service the needs of our clients’ customers.

We have extensive experience in disaster areas, having worked in the aftermath of several extreme events including the Newcastle storms (2007), Sydney hailstorms (2008), Rochester floods (2011), Melbourne Christmas Day hailstorms (2012), and Bundaberg floods (2013).
