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.

Our customers love us, and so will you! Here's what some of our customers have to say about Home Pro Inspections LLC:

 

Craig showed up to our appointment early, and got right to work. He answered every question we had and did not get tired of us asking. He was very professional in his work, and did a very thorough inspection of our home. He even used personal experiences to help us better understand each issue he found so he could give us a better outlook on what we should do and possibly how to save money, which is always a plus. The report was done that same night, he has a very quick turn around time as well in getting the actual report. We would definitely recommend Craig to anybody.
