Top 3 Home Safety Hacks
Being proactive and staying prepared in case of an emergency is good practice especially when it comes to protecting your home. You’ve already invested quite a bit into your living space, so why not do what you can to protect it and yourselves? Here are the top 3 home safety hacks to help keep you and your home safe.
1.) Know your area risks: Thankfully living in Arizona typically promises over 300 glorious days of sunshine. But that doesn’t mean that the Grand Canyon State doesn’t have some area hazards to be aware of. Anything from a huge dust storm, power outage, or a flood has the ability to wreak havoc on your home. Knowing the about the natural threats common to your area and the typical times they occur can help you better prepare to protect your home.
2.) Check you alarms: An average of $12 billion in personal property is lost in fires each year. That’s why it’s best to routinely test your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors regularly. According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), smoke detectors should be tested at least once a month and batteries should be replaced at least twice a year. Not only will this protect your property but doing so can also save your life!
3.) Have emergency numbers nearby: Having a list of important contact information in case of emergency somewhere that’s easily accessible to everyone is a must in every home. Even though in the digital age everyone has a cellphone and not many numbers committed to memory, it’s a good idea to have a list of important numbers such as the family doctor and poison control stuck on the fridge or dispersed in various areas in your home.
