Preventing home disasters can be simple. And to help you out, I’m going to quickly highlight some of the most important things you should pay attention to in your home.
When it comes to water, make sure it’s not leaking or causing other problems. Look for leaky faucets, wet spots, moisture, rust, stains, odours, and discolouration.
With gas, ensure there are no leaks (your meter should stop running when all gas devices are off), no combustible materials are close to flames or sparks, and that gas appliances have good air circulation around them.
As for electricity, circuits and fuses should match amperage ratings, plugs should match outlets, and light bulbs should match wattage recommendations.
Also, be smart with electrical cords. Keep them away from heat, don’t have them running across traffic pathways, play areas, or doorways, and don’t cover them with carpets or pinch them under furniture.
