Your home is the place you feel safest. Home safety includes many things, including protection from dangers outside and inside your home. At Franklin Insurance Agency in Rio Rancho, NM, we know that one way to protect your home is with the right home insurance, and we will work with you to ensure your coverage is right for your home and you.
Make sure your smoke detectors work.
Fire is an ever-present danger to any home, and the early warning that a smoke detector provides gives you and your family the best chance of getting out safely. The batteries need to be changed every six months like clockwork.
Get your chimney cleaned.
If you use your fireplace at all, even if it is a gas one, you must get your chimney cleaned regularly. Many fires start from the chimney and can go undetected on the roof for quite some time.
Keep chemicals and cleaners under lock and key.
Many things that are used regularly around the house are poisonous if ingested. Kids and pets can get into something that can make them very sick or even kill them. Why take a chance? Place anything dangerous in a cabinet with a lock.
Add an exterior home camera.
It is straightforward these days to add a camera to the exterior of your home. This way, no matter where you are, you can use an app on your phone to see what is happening at home. You can install one of these yourself for a very reasonable price.
Lock your windows
While most people lock their doors, they often forget to ensure the windows are locked.
