Halloween is just a few days away! We love any excuse around to celebrate and Halloween is especially fun around the office, but we wouldn't be good agents if we didn't give you a few good liability tips :)
You've heard most Halloween advice over and over:
Pack a flashlight..
Put reflective tape on costumes..
Check the candy before letting your kids eat it..
But what about the risks at your home? Your Homeowners Insurance does cover you if someone is injured on your property but here are a few tips to prevent accidents before they happen:
Every month, we share easy tasks you can do to keep your home in tip-top shape all year long. So, here are 5 simple tasks you can take on in October!
1. Pack Away the Air Conditioner: If you use a seasonal air conditioning unit, then now is the time to pack it up for winter. Make sure to spend a few extra minutes cleaning all the filters and coils as well. It will keep the unit in great shape and you'll be glad you did it when you dig it out next season.
2. Winterize External Plumbing Systems: It's much better to prepare for freezing temperatures before it's freezing! Winterize all exposed outdoor pipes and you'll avoid the trouble when there is snow or ice on the ground.
