If you don’t feel safe in your own home, then where are you ever going to feel safe? Your home is the space that you resort to after a long day at work. It’s where you go to unwind, get into your comfy clothes and snuggle up on the sofa with a naughty glass of wine. Then maybe pour yourself a divine candlelit bubble bath with incense sticks cleansing the air. – This is how your home should feel. Somewhere safe and cosy, so if you aren’t feeling that way, or you just want to brush up on a few safety regulations, then you should certainly do that sooner rather than later.
Here are some things that you should really consider thinking about.
Windows and doors
It sounds so obvious to mention locking your windows and doors, but you wouldn’t believe just how many people forget – especially when it comes to the summertime as everyone has every kind of window and door open because the weather is so lovely and hot. So when they decide to pop out to make a quick errand and forget to lock the back door or close the window – this is the ideal time for a criminal to let themselves in and take away all of your valuable items. So always be on the ball, regardless of what else is going on around you. One tiny missing detail could have such an awful impact.
Your boiler or furnace
It’s not often we ever think about these things in our home, as they tend to just be there and we don’t have to do much to them. But if ever there was a problem that went undiagnosed, this could be so dangerous, if not deadly, so you want to always make sure that everything is working as it should. You can call out your local service to take a look, but with how advanced technology is nowadays, you can think about getting yourself a kiln camera which essentially monitors everything that’s going on, while having the chance to see it for yourself too.
Let’s face it, we all like to feel a little pampered and cared for once in a while, or like to create a romantic evening for your other half, and the go-to thing in order to create that vibe, is candles. Now while candles are an extremely beautiful bit of deco and light source – they can be very dangerous depending on where you decide to leave them. It’s mostly common sense really, like don’t line candles up on the windowsill if you have curtains or blinds there as they can go up in flames. The same goes for if you put any in the bedroom – be sure to put them out properly before you go to sleep – as well as anywhere else they may be lying around.
So as you can see there isn’t that much you need to learn, it’s just paying attention to the little things and keeping your head screwed on.
