"HOME SAFETY"

"HOME SAFETY"

Home Safety” – you might instantly think about a security system, but what about your Home Health?


Think about it: it’s estimated we spend 87% of our lives indoors, whether at home, work, or traveling.


One study showed we spent nearly 10 hours a day at home in 2020, and a little less than 8 hours in 2019. With the way in which the workforce adapted, we’re spending more time at home than ever before — and it’s important that we think about our health and safety at home.


Here are a few things to consider to help keep your family and your home SAFE:


• Smoke Detectors — you should replace these every 10 years. Are they yellow? Replace. Don’t know how old they are? Replace. You should also have one in every bedroom and on every floor!


• Carbon Monoxide Detectors — Don’t forget about these. You can even get smoke detectors that have combined CO detectors. I recommend getting the ones with the 10-year lithium battery.


• Radon Test & Remediation — Did you know that radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers? It’s critical that you have your home tested for radon every 5-10 years!


• Dryer Vent Cleaning — not only will this increase efficiency, but it can also save your life! Studies show that over 15,000 fires are caused by clogged dryer vents every year!
