Your home is your solitude, but it can also be the ultimate stresser.  When it comes to home safety, electrical issues, plumbing problems, and other damage, you can have a good impact on avoiding a big headache! 

  • Trim trees around your house-Mother Nature can come in and do some damage to roofs if you have gangly and overly hanging branches

  • Purchase no-burst hoses for your washing machine

  • Turn off your water before going on vacation, or at least have a family friend or relative come checkup on it if you are insistent on keeping your water on.

  • Regularly monitor your foundation and check for wall crack

  • Check your fire alarm battery regulary

  • Put a splash pan under water heaters or washes to catch potential leaks

  • Install surge protectors to prevent data loss and protect you microprocessors

  • If you live in an earthquake-prone area, strap your water heater.
