Beware of Hidden Dangers in Your Home

Beware of Hidden Dangers in Your Home

With the change of seasons it’s an ideal time to check your home for potential hazards. Keeping your home safe may be essential for your family’s health and wellbeing and may also help lower the risk of a claim being made against your California home insurance

Places where hidden home safety hazards may lurk: 

•Roof. Even a small leak in your roof can cause a massive amount of damage if left undetected. Months of water seeping into the walls may cause mold issues and even undermine the structural integrity of your house. Consider hiring a professional to check your roof and attic area once a year. 
•Basement. Many homeowners use their basement area for long term storage and rarely enter it. Clutter and debris can accumulate over the years and create a fire hazard, particularly if the basement also houses a furnace. 
•Clothes dryer. Lint build up in dryer ducts and filters is a well-known cause of many house fires. It’s essential to remove trapped lint after every drying session. Keeping your lint filter clean may also improve air flow and help your dryer work efficiently. 

Over the cooler months it is easy to become a little complacent about potential home safety issues that aren’t immediately obvious. Make a point of marking each spring as a time to dust off your safety checklist and ensure your home is a safe and secure place for you and your family. You’ll be lowering the risk of claims against your California home insurance policy at the same time as improving the safety of your home.
