It’s not enough that your home is comfortable, but it should also be safe for everyone in the household. While you can’t predict accidents, it always helps to be prepared for anything that can happen to your home.
Install Smoke Detectors
All homes should have at least one smoke detector on every floor. You should also test the batteries of your detectors twice a year.
Get a Fire Extinguisher
Having a fire extinguisher is a must in every home. You can use it to stop a small fire from spreading to other parts of your home. Make sure to place it somewhere accessible so you can quickly put out a fire or control the flames while family members escape the house.
Invest in Gutter Protection
A gutter protection system will prevent fallen leaves, branches, seeds and other debris from entering your gutters. It can help reduce the number of times you have to clean your gutters, lowering the risk of ladder-related injuries.
Purchase Pack of Lighters
You can use lighters to ignite candles or navigate your home in case the power goes out. Buy a pack of them so you’ll have extras during emergency situations.
Get a Portable Charger
A cell phone is very important in case of emergencies. You can use it to research information, keep up with the news, make calls and even as a flashlight. Get a quality portable charger you and your family can use during a power outage.
