Many count on Commercial One Insurance Service to provide home insurance to make them feel safe, but there is more to having a safe home than a good home insurance policy. Home safety should be a priority for homeowners in Burlingame, CA.
Install a home security system
You have never had more options for home security. From DIY weekend projects to professionally installed systems, you can find a system that fits your needs and your wallet. Whether you have your home monitored or do the monitoring with your smartphone, it all helps make your home safe.
Light the exterior of your home
Having motion detector lights on a home’s exterior can be very discouraging to potential intruders. Don’t forget the back and sides of your home as well. Light is your friend when the sun goes down.
Use door and window locks
It doesn’t help to have locks on your doors and windows if you are not using them. Don’t forget your garage and your sliders. All of them should be adequately locked whether you are home or not.
Use non-slip mats in tubs and showers.
Making your shower or tub a safe place can help reduce falls. Nonslip mats or sticks can help lower the potential danger.
Clutter in hallways and on stairs is a recipe for disaster. Especially at night, when you can’t see where you are going, the danger of a fall is very real. The very young and the very old are the most likely to receive serious injuries.
