Buying a house is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make

What are your non-negotiables?

Before you even turn to Google, sit down and write out your property deal-breakers

* Which suburbs would you most like to live?
* Do you like the neighbouring suburbs?
* Are local schools a consideration?
* What’s the proximity to shops, sports facilities, cafes, restaurants etc?
* What are the dream features of your home?
* Is a garden or balcony important?
* How many bedrooms do you need?
* Do you need a garage?
* Do your desirables fall within your budget?

How much does it cost to buy property
Deposit
How much are you willing to pay upfront to secure your home?
The simple truth is that the more deposit you pay, the more likely you are to get a loan.
Of course, it depends on your lender and their rules, as well as your financial situation.
You may be eligible for government help if you’re buying your first home.

Other Costs
Property inspection reports are not compulsory, but it is a good idea to get a house inspection to uncover any likelihood of hidden costs you have to pay once you’ve bought the property.
We recommend you choose a property inspector who has professional indemnity insurance and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standards

When you have purchased your new home sit back and relax. You deserve it.

An Insight into Viscose

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

Viscose, or Rayon, was the first regenerated fibre to be manufactured for commercial production in the early 1900s.


As a fabric, it is able to emulate the extremely soft handle and subtle sheen of natural fibres, whilst being more cost effective to produce. Therefore, resulting in the continued popularity of viscose in fashion and soft furnishings.


Although viscose begins as a natural fibre, it is different from products like linen and cotton because it undergoes a manufacturing process. During this process, wood pulp is dissolved in alkali to make the solution called viscose, which is then squeezed through a nozzle or spinneret into an acid bath to create filaments called regenerated cellulose, and finally spun into yarn.


As with all natural fibres, viscose has a unique personality and requires special care. In this article we will discuss the characteristics of this versatile fabric, whether it is the right choice for your next project, and its unexpected enemy – H2O.

Characteristics of Viscose:
• Soft Handle
• Luxurious appearance and subtle natural lustre.
• Viscose yarn absorbs and holds dye well. Especially when piece dyed, a viscose product has the ability to reflect vibrant and bold colour.
• Can be engineered to resemble other natural fibres such as linen cotton and silk, while in most instances, can be more cost effective.
• Absorbent fibre and less durable when wet. We recommend that fabric qualities with a high percentage of viscose yarn are not washed or spot cleaned with water. Due to the absorbent nature of the yarn, spot cleaning can result in watermarks occurring.
• Dry Cleanable. In most cases we recommend a professional dry clean for compositions with a high amount of viscose.
• Low thermal retention. This characteristic mostly applies to the fashion apparel industry. Being a cellulose based fibre, it does not retain heat as well.
• As with all natural fibres, viscose can be susceptible to fading in direct sunlight due to the extreme UV conditions in Australasia. We recommend you are mindful of where natural fibres are situated in the home. In a drapery situation we always recommend a quality lining.
• For interior textiles, a fabric with a component of viscose yarn is extremely versatile and can be used in drapery, upholstery and accessory applications. We don’t typically recommend viscose fabrics to be used for bedding due to the fibre generally being dry clean only.
• A fabric that contains a viscose component can have the same fabric dye processes, finishes and printing applications as other natural fibres.
