How to Prevent Home Disasters

Welcome back boo,

I hope you’re all ready for the weekend!

If you are looking to live a free and easy life as a homeowner, it is important that you look after your own safety and keep on top of the maintenance tasks in your home. There are so many things that can go wrong, but most of them can be prevented with a little bit of diligence. Below you will find a few tips on how to avoid home emergencies and save money at the same time on repairs.

Even if you own your home, you might want to get an electrical inspectionThese are there for a reason for when you sell or rent out properties for a reason. You should get your wiring and your cables checked, and your fuses tested so you don’t end up with a costly electrical fire. You can sign up for an insurance or a regular inspection deal with a local contractor and have the peace of mind that your appliances are safe.

HVAC Checks

The most common cause of home emergencies is heating and air conditioning system failures. It is not only inconvenient to live without heating, hot water, or air conditioning, but also once things have gone wrong it will cost you much more to arrange emergency repairs than having regular inspections. Pay attention to the condition of the ducts, change your air filters, and get your contractor to look for leaks and failing electrical parts.

Fire and Smoke Alarm Testing

It only takes a few minutes to fire or smoke to spread in your home, so you have to make sure that you pay attention to home safety and security and test your fire and smoke alarms regularly. Most models can be tested with a press of a button. Do this every month, and set up a reminder in your diary or on your phone, so you can be sure that you notice when something is going wrong.

Drains and Pipes Maintenance

Of course, when fall arrives and the leaves are all over your garden, you will have to make sure that your pipes and drains are not getting blocked. You might also have a blockage inside the house that can cause burst pipes. The good news is that you can have the contact details of a drain cleaning company handy and get them to visit once or twice every year to inspect the condition of your drains and pipes.

Surge Protection

If you live in an area that is regularly hit by storms in the spring and fall, you will need to install surge protection to prevent your expensive television and other appliances failing due to the fluctuating voltage. While you can take precautions and turn off the electricity when there is a chance that the electricity is going to be unstable. While some insurance plans cover storms, others simply don’t.

Whether you are looking to protect your home, valuables, or simply keep on top of your maintenance tasks, your effort will pay off. You can rest assured that you don’t have to fork out a lot of money on home emergencies.

Remember to keep on slaying,

See you next time xoxo
