Safety in the home is a major concern. Some simple changes can decrease the chances of an injury occurring in your home or your home causing an injury. At Insurance Solutions Inc. in Cullman, AL, we offer complete insurance services to our customers. As independent insurance agents, we work for our customers and put their needs first.
Have a smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Having smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home can save lives. Not only should you have them, but you need to check the battery backup every six months. Some people opt to change the batteries when the time changes. This doesn’t require a reminder.
Clear the clutter
Trip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries and even death. Keep clutter off the stairs and out of hallways to avoid danger. The elderly and young children are particularly vulnerable to this type of accident.
Keep poison out of reach.
Many things that we use every day are poisonous if they are ingested. Children and pets are more likely to end up with something in their mouths that doesn’t belong there. Keep all medication secure and out of reach. Store chemicals and cleaners under lock and key if possible.
Use your door and window locks.
Locks are placed on windows and doors to provide security. They can only do that if you use them. Ensure the window locks are all secure, and use the deadbolt on your door.
Don’t skimp on the lighting.
Keep exterior lights on or add motion detector lights. Inside, make sure that you are not stumbling around in the dark. That can be dangerous.
