Home Safety Tasks for Spring

April 7, 2016 | Blog

Home Safety Tasks for SpringSpring is coming to Texas, and with it many homeowners turn to thoughts of spring cleaning. Along with your spring cleaning tasks, consider taking some time to assess the safety of your home. Here are some important factors to include on your home safety checklist this spring.

Check for Cords

Cords are necessary to run the appliances and electronics we all depend on, but unfortunately they can represent a significant electrocution or fire risk. Make sure all cords you use are in good repair, free from cracks and frays. Avoid overloading outlets by only plugging one item in per outlet. Make sure you do not run cords over heaters, under rugs or around pipes.

Pay Attention to Electrical Hazards

If you have appliances that regularly overheat, you need to replace them. This is a sign of an internal problem that represents a fire risk. Check around your HVAC system to ensure there are no frayed or exposed wires. Also, if you have outlets that regularly blow a fuse, consider having an electrician take a look to ensure you are not leaving your home safety at risk.

Use Lighting Well

Use your lighting to deter intruders. Lighting doorways and walkways and leaving a light on when you are gone are good options. Consider adding motion sensor lights in areas you wish not to light, but that could be welcoming to intruders. Keep in mind that extremely bright lights can actually backfire, as they can create deeper shadows. Keep the lighting low but sufficient. Also, ensure that your home’s address numbers are well lit in the case of an emergency.

As you are sprucing up your home for spring, consider sprucing up your HVAC system as well. The team at Mathews CCAC can thoroughly inspect your HVAC system to ensure it is safe and efficient.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
