Once your Oklahoma City Movers unload your items, there are a number of things to remember as you attempt to settle in your new home. Below are just a few important reminders.
First things first: install new batteries in your smoke alarms and make sure they’re functioning properly. Faulty smoke alarms can be lethal. Don’t be a victim.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
It’s estimated that more than 200 Americans die every year from carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide can be emitted from water heaters and other fuel burning appliances. Be on the safe side and invest in a good quality carbon monoxide detector.
Make sure all your doors have locks. Don’t place valuables in sight of open windows. If you have a sliding glass door, use a broom stick or other device to insure that the door can’t be forced open. If you have the money, you might consider a professionally installed and monitored security system.
These and other actions will help insure your new home is as safe as possible.
