The cold winter weather is officially here, and while you are bundling up in your favorite sweater, it is important to make sure that you know how to protect your home from any accidents. Keep these tips in mind to ensure that your home stays safe throughout the winter.

  • Hire a professional to clean your chimney and fireplace. Built up soot in the chimney can easily catch fire when you use your fireplace to keep warm.
  • Make sure all portable space heaters are kept at least three feet away from flammable objects, such as furniture and curtains.
  • Test all of your smoke alarms throughout your home to be sure that they are working properly. Replace any alarms that are broken or outdated.
