Importance of Home Safety Inspection
According to a recent news report, a south Florida elderly couple owes their lives to a home safety inspection after a fire started in their town home. The reason they credit the home inspection for saving their lives is because during the inspection their smoke alarms where switched with new ones that worked. Turn to AA All Services if it’s been a while since you’ve had your home inspected for safety.
Proper Home Safey Inspections
Thankfully, the entire townhouse complex had undergone a home safety inspection, even though it’s common for private homes to not receive such an inspection. For that reason, AA All Services recommends that you allow us to inspect your home for safety. In the meantime, there are things that you can do on your own, including:
- Make sure all of the exit paths in your home are clear
- Make sure that everyone in your family knows how to operate the windows in case they ever need to be used as an escape route
- Show all members of your household where the carbon monoxide and smoke alarms are and test them every month
- Have a home fire escape plan and practice it with everyone in the house
