Squealing noise during cold start

Our Kia Sportage 2010 had its 75,000km servicing (major) about a couple of weeks ago. One of the parts replaced is a drive belt.

Starting 3 days ago, car emits a squealing noise during cold starts. See sample videos below:




The servicing invoice did say that new belt(s) might need re-adjustment within 3-5 days. So I popped in to our local NRMA MotorServe, they did some checks (bolts, pulley etc) and re-adjusted tension, and now no more noise! Of course, no charge for this re-adjustment.
