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. Lindeman was excellent.  I would recommend him highly to anyone.  He always returned our phone calls promptly.  He would make sure that he returned our phone call on the same day that we called him.  He was most thorough with the home inspection and was willing to work with us and do everything that we asked of him.  His prices were excellent.  His rates were very competitive offering more than other home inspectors.  He was willing to listen to us as consumers and respected all of our needs.  He arrived at the home as he promised and was not delayed in completing the job.  He deserves a rating of "excellent" !
