Look Out for These Common Home Hazards
Homes can have safety issues that aren’t always obvious — problems that could endanger you and your family.
Fortunately, doing an annual safety audit of your property can help identify some of these hazards and allow you to remedy them before they cause larger problems. It may also help you to avoid using your home warranty or homeowners insurance.
Want to make sure your home is safe for you and your loved ones? Here’s a room-by-room breakdown of what to do.
If you have kids, make sure sharp knives and utensils are stored safely in a drawer. You should also check that your vent hood is working properly and that there’s a fire extinguisher within easy reach.
Do your rugs have nonskid undersides that are in good condition? If not, replace them or add a nonskid mat underneath. You should also check that your electronics are kept away from water sources like the sink and tub.
Make sure heavy furniture is secured to the wall or somehow anchored. This is particularly important if you have small kids who may be injured pulling down shelves or dressers.
Regularly empty your dryer vent, and make sure the lint trap is clear after each load of laundry. These can both become fire hazards when clogged.
If you have a fireplace, have it inspected by a professional annually. Adding a fire screen (if you don’t already have one) is also important. Be aware that area rugs can be tripping hazards, too.
If examining your property has made you realize that you’re ready to move on to your next home, get in touch so we can start the search together.

Take your time
You might be itching to start Chip and Joanna Gaines-ing it, but rushing into home projects can lead to headaches, heartaches and unnecessary expenses. “Everyone has all this initial energy and drive to tackle home renovation projects when they close on a home, but over time, many of people run out of ambition, time and/or money,” said real estate broker Link Moser, GOBankingRates reported. “We also find that we learn to live with some of the imperfections. A lot of people rush into tackling projects that end up taking resources away from something else.”
Make sure materials are readily available
The COVID-19 pandemic, as well as other factors contributing to current supply chain issues, are unlikely to go away this year, and shortages of certain materials and products are likely to continue, according to TechCrunch. Before embarking on your home improvement journey, make sure the materials you need will be available in a timely manner or consider other alternatives that could work.
Don’t try to DIY everything
In some cases, cutting corners is acceptable, but be honest with yourself about your abilities and don’t take on more than you can handle. Attempting to do everything yourself can end up costing more money than hiring a professional in the first place. “One of the most costly mistakes that homeowners can make when renovating is trying to DIY a project that they should have hired a pro for. If you don’t have the skills, ability, equipment and time to take on a project, it’s usually better left to a professional. Moreover, just because you do have the skills, ability, equipment and time to take on a project, that doesn’t make that you should,” Forbes Advisor reported.
