New Year Resolutions

Do you have resolutions for your home?

A new year ushers in both major and subtle changes. People all across the world are seeking to better themselves, learn a new skill, or save money for a large purchase. If you want to take care of yourself while also safeguarding your money, we recommend upgrading your home security. Accidents in the house might jeopardize the safety of you and your family while also costing you a lot of money. You may save yourself a lot of pain in the long run by addressing potential problems early on. Here are some simple ways to make your home a happier and healthier atmosphere in the year 2022

Examine your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Now is as good a time as any to double-check that you have the right detectors in the right places, and that their batteries are well charged. A functional smoke alarm may be the difference between a few hundred dollars and tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Furthermore, it has the potential to save your life.

CO detectors are the same way. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas, so you won’t know it’s there unless you have a functioning carbon monoxide detector.

Maintain a Healthy Air Quality

Allergies and asthmatic symptoms can be exacerbated by dirty air. Make sure you dust your home on a regular basis. Every 3 to 5 years, you should have your air ducts properly examined and cleaned by a NADCA certified member. Consider installing an air purifier if you still have a lot of dust in your house and/or the air seems heavy.

Clean the Vents in Your Dryer

Home fires are frequently caused by dryer fires. Frequently, it’s as easy as a smoldering lint trap. After each load of washing, make sure to clean your lint filter. Even so, lint accumulates in your dryer vents over time.

This not only makes your machine work harder (leading in higher power bills and costly repairs), but it also increases the risk of a fire in your house. Ensure that your dryer vents have been examined and cleaned lately.
