It's that time of year again.
The best of the best in the Australian Football League are battling it out for a place in the Grand Final, where they'll have the chance to take the coveted championship title.
The September 22 AFL Grand Final is approaching fast, but if you didn't get your tickets in time, there's no reason to fret. It just gives you the opportunity to throw your own finals party, where you can have friends and family over, fire up the barbecue and relax on your own couch.
With only a few days to go, you may want to start planning your party now, and decide if there are any home improvements or small fixer-uppers that would make the party even better.
Take your back deck, for example. There's nothing better than cooking meats and veggies out on the grill on gameday, but if your deck hasn't been cleaned or stained in years, this could be an opportune time to get that done.
One of the easiest ways to strip your deck clean of grime and stains is to hire a pressure cleaner designed for such a task. These easy-to-use tools range between 1,200psi and 4,000psi, depending on what type of surface needs to be cleaned.
If you're looking for a reason to spruce up the inside of your home - perhaps the TV room where you'll be cheering on your team - this could be the perfect opportunity. With the right paint and wallpaper removal equipment, changing the look of the room can be done in only a weekend.
A good cause all around
When you do decide to get your home ready for the game, head to Kennards Hire, where you can not only find any home improvement tools you'll need but also support the Kennards for Kids charity.
This September and October, Kennards Hire will donate $2 from every piece of equipment that is hired to local charities to improve the lives of sick, injured or disadvantaged kids all over the country.
Last year, the campaign was so successful it raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for these charities. This demonstrates the family-owned company's belief that children, regardless of their situations, are the future of the country, and must be properly nurtured and cared for.
