When it comes to fire safety, there is nothing more important than getting your home ready for the new season. With summer right around the corner, making sure your home is protected against a fire emergency situation is vital. In fact, homeowners have certain things that they need to do before the summer hits to ensure their systems are in proper working order. Here is everything you need for maximum home fire safety.
What To Check And Replace
There are certain systems in your home that should always be checked and replaced regularly. In fact, things like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, light bulbs, HVAC filters, dryer filters, and fire extinguishers are all the systems that should be checked and then if needed, replaced as necessary. When it comes to smoke detectors as of January 1, 2018 the new Maryland Smoke Alarm Law requires the replacement of battery only operated smoke detectors to have a
10-year sealed lithium battery. The smoke alarm law requires ALL smoke detectors to be replaced every 10 years after the manufacturer date.
What To Reset And Update
Every season, or even just twice a year, there are certain home maintenance things that you need to make sure you don’t forget to do. In fact, from home alarm systems to DVR’s to ceiling fans and computer passwords, there is a lot that needs to be reset and updated to ensure your home is ready for the new summer season.
At the end of the day, there is a lot for a homeowner to do to get their home ready and prepared for a new season. In fact, making sure to have a checklist to keep your home safe is one of the best ways to ensure everyone is protected and safe no matter what (particularly a fire) can happen! Therefore, before you start enjoying the summer without a care in the world, take the time to ensure that you have made sure your home has been checked to ensure it’s safe and protected against a fire.
