When most people think of spring cleaning, they think of deep cleaning their kitchen, clearing their closets, scrubbing the bathroom, etc.
But are you also inspecting your home for safety?
This spring, consider using this time to check if your home is safe for you and your family.
Here’s a checklist to get you started:
Deep clean your dryer. This means more than cleaning the lint trap. You can hire someone to clean the venting to the outside if you don’t have the tools to do it yourself.
Make sure your emergency detectors are up-to-date. Dust them off, replace the batteries, and check them using the test button.
Inspect for mold, especially in moisture-rich rooms. If it spreads, it can cause serious health problems.
Maintain your emergency/first-aid kit. It’s common to take emergency kits for granted, but you need to be prepared. Stock up on batteries, canned goods, bottled water, bandages, gauze, and other supplies.
Here’s to clean… and safe! homes.
