Much has already been written on this blog regarding job safety standards, but what about when you come home? You should always make sure that your home, of all places, is as safe as it can be. And, aside from the obvious perks, meeting some basic home safety standards could really make a difference when it comes to your home insurance rates.
Below are some things you can do to make the home safer:
- In the basement you want to make sure all your chemicals and paints are in covered containers. If you have any combustibles, you should consider relocating them to an area outside of the home.
- In the bathroom, make sure you put in some textured surfaces in the shower and tub. The installation of grab bars is also advised if none are present.
- If possible, re-run any cords or electrical wires that run through high-traffic areas and make sure you don’t place a rug or carpet over any.
Those are just a few suggestions. And, as mentioned before, there are some home safety measures that could even positively impact your insurance. However, if you’re looking for specifics, you should check with kansashomeinsurance.com or your home insurance provider of choice. They’ll have the answers to your questions.
