Equipment and tools can be used from everything from putting new furniture together to fixing existing pieces. They’re necessary in the home, at work and in the garden, and come in various different forms. Whether you’re searching for quality hand tools, cordless drills or electrical tools and equipment, Houzz UK is bound to have what you’re looking for.

What are tools and equipment?


Tools are items which are used to carry out a specific goal, mainly putting something together or taking something apart. There are two main types; hand tools, such as spanners and hammers, which do not require a power source to run, and power tools which do require power, such as drills and saws.

Equipment and tools are very similar and the words are often used interchangeably. Equipment is the set of necessary items or tools needed for a particular operation or activity, such as sports, gardening and construction. Types of equipment include machines, vehicles, tools and devices.

How can we maintain tools and equipment properly?


There are a few different ways to keep tool sets in tip-top condition. Here are some tips on how to store tools and equipment properly:

  • Store your tools with care in a dry location, such as a box, shelf or bag
  • Hang gardening tools whenever possible, and store power tools in their cases
  • Inspect your tools regularly for signs of damage, and repair them immediately if necessary
  • Wipe down your tools after every use with a clean cloth, and follow the manufacturer’s cleaning and maintenance guidelines
  • Certain tools will require lubricating on a regular basis. Ensure you use an oil that is appropriate for the specific tool
