Staying Safe During the Holidays – Home Renovation
Posted by Emma Weldon on December 30, 2016
This week is a time to munch on leftovers, play with new gifts, and enjoy time with family. Amidst all the fun, it’s important to be mindful of your family’s well being. Around the holidays, police officers and emergency room workers will typically tell you that they see an uptick in crime and accidents. How can you keep your family safe? Home ReBuilders has some solutions from your Home Renovation Atlanta experts:
Fix Flooring Issues
Does your family trip over the same bunched carpet or buckled hardwood each time they walk over it? Older floors, and changes in flooring between rooms, are notorious for causing accidents. Let our Atlanta contractors help minimize trips and falls while also adding lasting value to your home with new floors.
Install New Locks
If your house has windows that don’t properly lock – or doors without a deadbolt – let our team take on this small project that will help keep your family safer year-round! Also, remember that empty gift boxes tip off would-be criminals to the contents of your home – so cut up the box from that new flat-screen TV and put it inside a garbage bag instead of leaving it out on the curb!
Secure doors and windows can help prevent criminals from entering your home.
Repair Electrical Work
Wiring problems, older appliances, and a lack of surge protectors can all be a fire hazard. Our Atlanta remodel team can thoroughly check your home to determine whether you need electrical work and create a plan that will help keep your family safe. Electrical work can also include fun add-ons, like recessed lighting, specialty outlets, under-cabinet lighting, dimmers, and sound systems.
Inspect Your Fireplace
Your fireplace is a source of warmth, comfort, and cozy evenings – but home fires are a serious issue. Our team can repair deteriorated brickwork in your chimney or around your hearth. We can also inspect your chimney cap, which is a metal piece at the top of your chimney that prevents any fire sparks from landing on your roof. Remember to never leave a fire unattended, and to remove any papers or objects from around your fireplace that could be a hazard.
A safe, modern fireplace helps ensure that fires are a source of comfort, not concern!
From our family to yours, we hope you enjoyed this holiday season. Our clients are our biggest source of inspiration. Thank you for your business in 2016 – and we can’t wait to tackle 2017’s projects with you!
