Tips for Keeping Your Property Safe and Secure
Prevention is better than cure and that is certainly the case when it comes to your property.
By carrying out the following tasks, you can safeguard your home or business, which will make it more secure and ready to withstand the worst of the weather.
Electric – Check plugs and sockets for cracks and any damage. Get them replaced by a fully-qualified and registered KS Gas electrician when needed.
Also check your fuse box and make sure you have spare fuses to hand as you never know when you might need them.
Water – Check your stopcock and review the insulation of the pipes and tank in the roof – a cold snap could freeze the tank. It is also a good idea to get your central heating boiler serviced regularly by a KS Gas plumber.
Drains And Gutters – Make sure that all drains and gutters are clear and silt-free.
Security – Check that your security lights and their sensors are working properly.
Alarms – Regularly check that smoke alarms are working. If you do not have them, make it a priority to install them. If you have a burglar alarm, ensure it is serviced.
Roof – Make a visual check of your roof to make sure there are no clipped tiles. High wind could blow tiles of the roof, damaging whatever they hit, as well as increasing the chance of leaks.
Walls – Make sure your damp proof course is not bridged by debris.
Garage/Shed – Ensure the locks on outside buildings are in good working condition.
Garden – Prune any trees near your property to prevent branches from falling into walls of windows during high winds.
Insurance – Make sure that your property is fully covered and any valuables or additions, such as a new conservatory or extension, are included on your policy. Make sure the value of your insurance covers the cost of replacing your property and its contents. If you are unsure then speak to your insurance broker.
