When it comes to protecting your home, having a fire safety checklist is a great way to make sure you and your family are safe from danger. In fact, with spring just around the corner, it’s a great time of year to conduct a home safety annual checkup. Here is a helpful checklist that will help to make your home safe a task that is stress-free and easy.
Check Smoke Detectors
One of the most important things that you can do in your home to ensure protection against a deadly fire is to check all the smoke detectors. It’s not just smoke detectors that need your attention. Your carbon monoxide detectors should also have an inspection. You’ll want to make sure that you change the batteries twice a year, replace the smoke detectors every ten years, and renew your carbon monoxide detectors every five years.
All The Lightbulbs
Whether indoor or outdoor, changing out the light bulbs throughout the home is a great way to ensure that your home is safe from fire. Consider updating to energy efficient bulbs for significant cost savings.
Fire Extinguisher Comes First
Fire extinguishers are crucial to have in your home as a safety measure in the event of a fire emergency. Every homeowner should check the pressure gauge of their fire extinguisher every season. But, not just that, homeowners should also be sure to verify the locking pin in their fire extinguisher they have and make sure that it is intact.
Reset And Update Home Alarms
Another critical step in protecting your home from a fire emergency is to make sure the correct Daylight Savings Time dates are programmed into your alarm systems control panel. In fact, while some systems can do this themselves, not all will. As a result, you may want to contact a professional to ensure that the proper time is allocated to the systems you use to protect your home from danger.
