How To Keep Your Home Safe In Summer
Brits love the summer. Any excuse to relax in the garden, get the BBQ out and slather on the sunscreen. But while the summer weather can be exciting, you still need to be safe So in the lead up to summer, you should have a look around your home and ensure you have taken some precautions to keep it safe.
Here is how to keep your home safe in summer.
In the summer, it is inevitable that you’ll have windows and doors open a lot more than usual. And while it can be tempting to leave them open all night long to cool your house, this is something you should avoid. Make sure any accessible windows and doors are kept locked in parts of the house you’re not using and at night time.
This could be a great time to go around your house and check the condition of all the locks on your windows and doors. You might find some rusted over or looking weak. If so you should invest in some new locks.
With the summer months keeping windows and doors open, you’ll also want to ensure valuables are locked away instead of out on display. A safe can be a great option to lock away your precious possessions without worrying about them coming to harm. Good ideas for things to lock away are anything valuable that is kept near windows and doors that will be open during summer, as these will be prime targets for someone to reach in and grab.
BBQs are one of the leading causes of fires every summer, so before you fire up the grill, make sure you keep in mind some BBQ safety tips. Never use petrol or paraffin and ensure you set up your BBQ far from any highly flammable material such as sheds, trees or fences.
You should also never leave a BBQ attended, so if you are the person in charge make sure you only leave your post if you source a replacement. Keep a hose nearby in case the BBQ gets out of control and you need water. Make sure you keep children and pets away, ideally a couple of metres.
