Home safety comes in different layers. One is considered emergency preparedness—you have backup reserves ready in case of a worst-case scenario. Another is known as hazard prevention, which involves preventive measures that help curtail accidents and injuries. Regardless of which one they fall under, these tips can help ensure safety for you and your family. Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc., your local source of gutters, discusses them here.

Prepare for Severe Weather

Our state is no stranger to flooding and strong storms, which is why it is always a good idea to prepare beforehand before severe weather hits. Take a look around and consider upgrading and performing simple maintenance to reduce damage from wind and water.

Keep an Eye on the Floor Surfaces

Got wooden floors at home? Be sure to mop them with a cleaner that doesn’t leave slicks to prevent yourself and others from slipping. Also, make sure the footwear you use to walk around your home protects you from falls.

Keep in Mind Where Your Shut-Off Valves Are

Few people know where the emergency shut-off valves for gas, water and electricity are located. Take time to find them and inform everyone in your household about it so they also know where to look. Twist them at least once a year so they don’t get stuck.

Invest in a Gutter Protection System

It is not enough that you have functioning gutters. Consider adding a gutter protection system—it lets rainwater runoff enter the gutters while leaving leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other debris out. With this, you reduce the risks posed by clogged gutters. Not only that, but you also lower the risk of ladder-related injuries because the covering does the gutter cleaning for you.
