Winter Safety Home Prep Tips

December 12, 2018

 

Brrr!!! It’s cold outside! If November and December have proven anything it’s that Mississippi is in for a cold winter, possibly one of the coldest we’ve seen in years. That’s why it’s super important for your home to be prepared for a safe winter season. Check out our tips to help you get started.

 

  • Check your home’s fire and CO monitors and replace your batteries to ensure they run throughout the season.

  • Do not heat your home with a gas range or oven in the event your heat goes out.

  • Make sure your fire extinguisher is in working order and ensure you and your family members know how to use it.

  • Stock your home with batteries, candles and non-perishable food and water in case of an unexpected snow. Shovels and salt may also come in handy.

  • Inspect the outside of your home for damaged or frayed wires.

  • Make sure all electronic decorations have tight-fitting connections and keep cords out of main walkways and away from rugs.

  • Trim loose or falling tree limbs especially near power lines.

  • Clean out gutters and rid your roof of debris.

  • Knock away icicles while they are small.

  • Insulate your pipes to avoid a burst pipe.

  • Keep walkways clear and salt areas prone to ice.

  • Clean your hood vent and other fans and filters throughout your home to keep indoor air clean.

  • Prepare for flooding. Our winters are cold and rainy. Identify areas in your home that are prone to water build-up.

  • Keep your home stocked with antibacterial soap and Lysol to help keep winter viruses and infections away.
