Tips for making your California home safer

Having a safe home is an important part of homeownership. You not only want to feel safe in your home but to be safe. Safety begins outside and continues inside. At Wine Valley Insurance Services in Napa, CA, we have years of insurance experience. As an independent insurance agency, we have many carriers to offer to our customers. 

Add motion lights

Having well-positioned motion lights on the exterior of your home can provide you with a clear vision of what is happening on the exterior of your home, even on the darkest nights. It can also deter anyone trying to come up to the house unobserved. 

Add a home security system

These days, home security systems are easy to install and inexpensive. There isn’t any excuse not to have one. You can monitor your home with your cellphone while you are away, which is quite convenient. 

Clear the walkways

Trips and falls are a huge risk at any home. Clutter, in the way, is one common reason. This is important in all areas of your home, both inside and out. 

Change the batteries in smoke detectors

Fire is a serious risk in California, and you should be prepared by having working smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in your home. If you lose electricity, you need a battery backup. 

Lock your windows

People remember to lock their doors, but they all too often forget to lock their windows. Windows have locks for a good reason: They keep intruders out and children from falling out.
