A new year brings about changes, both big and small. People all across the world are seeking to better themselves, learn a new skill, and/or save money for a large purchase. If you want to take care of yourself while also safeguarding your money, we recommend improving your home security.
Accidents in the house might risk the safety of you and your family while also costing you a lot of money.
By addressing potential problems early on, you may save yourself a lot of pain later on. Here are some simple ways to make your home a happier and healthier atmosphere in the year 2022.
Maintain a High Level of Air Quality
Dirty air can aggravate allergies and asthmatic symptoms. Make it a habit to dust your home on a regular basis. Your air ducts should be professionally checked and cleaned every 3 to 5 years by a NADCA certified member. If you still have a lot of dust in your residence and/or the air seems heavy, consider installing an air purifier.
Your Dryer’s Vents Should Be Cleaned
Dryer fires are a common cause of home fires. It’s often as simple as a flaming lint trap. Make sure to clean your lint filter after each load of laundry. Nonetheless, lint builds up in your dryer vents over time.
This not only makes your machine work harder (resulting in higher power bills and more expensive repairs), but it also raises the chance of a fire in your home. Check to see if your dryer vents have been inspected and cleaned recently.
Examine your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
Now is a good time to double-check that you have the correct detectors in the correct locations, and that their batteries are fully charged. A working smoke alarm might be the difference between a few hundred dollars and tens of thousands of dollars in property damage. Additionally, it has the ability to save your life.
CO detectors operate in the same manner. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas, so unless you have a working carbon monoxide detector, you won’t know it’s there.
