Spring Cleaning! Use our quick checklist to help prepare your home for spring:

-Check your electrical outlets for potential fire hazards such as frayed wires or loose-fitting plugs. Make sure outlets, fuse boxes and extension cords are not overloaded.

– Move your multi-purpose fire extinguisher to an accessible place, and make sure it is filled and ready for operation.

-Have your air-conditioning system inspected by a professional as recommended by the manufacturer.

-Check your water heater for leaks and corrosion.

-Clean or replace your furnace filter.

-Clean the clothes dryer exhaust duct and space under the dryer. Remove all lint, dust, and pieces of material.

-Inspect your smoke detectors. Make sure there is one on each floor of your home. Test them monthly, and change the batteries annually or as needed.

-Check the light bulbs in all your fixtures. Be sure they are the correct wattage as recommended by the manufacturer.
– Replace all high-intensity bulbs with fluorescent bulbs. Other types of bulbs, like incandescent, produce more heat than fluorescent bulbs.
