The riser has become loose ?
This is not common as each riser is secured all around and cannot fall out of place. If the movement is excessive, report it as a defect.
The riser has split ?
Unless the riser is constructed from a hardwood which you wish to keep exposed, you can fill any small cracks prior to re-decorating. If the crack is greater than the thickness of a pound coin (edge) report it as a defect.
If you have just moved in, here are some important reminders:
Don't forget to complete all of the warranty cards for your fitted electrical appliances. Keep a copy and send them off to the manufacturer. Should you ever need to report a fault, you know they will have proof of your cover.
Make a note in your diary to book a service in 12 months time. Failure to maintain annual services could invalidate your warranty cover.
WATER AND GAS SHUT-OFF VALVE
Make sure you (and other responsible members of the household) know where to find the shut-off valves for water supply and (if applicable) gas.
Make a note of your meter readings for your electricity supply, water and gas (if applicable). Keep it somewhere safe.
