It’s a new year, and if you’re like FP Property Restoration, you’re already looking for ways to make 2021 better than 2020. For our team, the top way we can do that is to help property owners enjoy their homes safely and comfortably. With that in mind, read on for our top three safety resolutions for homeowners in the new year.
The Top 3 Safety Resolutions to Follow in 2021
- Keep Cleaning & Disinfecting Frequently: It’s no exaggeration to say that many people across the country are starting to experience Coronavirus fatigue. Yet COVID-19 continues to be a very real threat, and we must all do our part to keep our communities and our loved ones healthy and safe. With that in mind, you should not only keep following CDC guidelines such as wearing masks, staying home whenever possible, and practicing social distancing, but also continue to practice proper hygiene and sanitation. Wash your hands whenever possible, and make sure to clean and disinfect surfaces in your home frequently. Take it from our disinfecting professionals, every little bit you can do helps.
- Avoid Habits That Lead to Fire & Water Damage: With the amount of time you are likely to continue to spend in your home this year, it’s essential not to get sloppy when it comes to safety. Although you may not realize it, it’s possible you are currently practicing habits that can lead to problems like fire and water damage. Fortunately, you can prevent disasters from happening through common sense adjustments. Never let candles burn too long, for instance, and always closely monitor fires in your fireplace. And when it comes to water damage, check your water pressure, monitor your water bill, and find your main shut-off valve, in case you need to turn off your water supply to prevent flooding.
- Always Call for Professional Restoration ASAP: The key to damage restoration is reacting quickly. That’s why FP Property Restoration is available 24/7 for all your emergency service needs. If you live in an area that is prone to hurricanes, contact us immediately if you are concerned about storm damage. And if your property has recently experienced a flood or a fire, hire our team right away—even if the damage doesn’t seem that bad. Remember, waiting to undergo professional cleaning and repair can lead to ongoing issues, such as mold growth. That’s why when it comes to restoration, sooner is always better.
