Home Safety

Home safety is important for people of all ages. Since most accidents occur at home and many of them are preventable, it is important that your home is as safe as possible. Here are some helpful tips from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on making your home a safer place for everyone.

To ensure the safety of your family, it is a good idea to periodically review your home for safety hazards, paying special attention to smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, potential electrical hazards (including overuse of surge protectors and/or electrical cords), anything that could potentially cause a fire (or impede a hasty exits in the case of fire), and anything that could potentially cause a slip or fall within the home.

The Home Safety Council has an interactive home safety checklist that you can create based on your specific living situation. Click here to get started.

Mr. Dan Linderman is an incredibly professional and very knowledgeable person as well as a home inspector. When he arrived at the home he greeted my wife and I with nothing but a firm handshake and bright smile. He spoke with us for a few minutes and got right to the inspection. He brought us into the home and went over with us everything he was about to do and asked if we had any questions and said if I'd like to walk with him while he did the inspection, I was more than welcome. While going through everything he was telling me what he was doing while teaching and showing me things I didn't know as well as letting me know what to look for as the years pass, on the house (deterioration, cracks as the house settles, pipes ect.) The overall inspection was absolutely awesome and once he finished up, he stayed and talked with us for a little while and answered any questions we had. I would recommend Mr. Linderman and Tri-State Property Inspections to anyone including my close family and friends, they combine good faith and workmanship and that is what I was looking for.
