Home Maintenance Tips for Spring
June 12, 2017

Good Maintenance practices help protect the value of your home. Spring and summer are an ideal time to assess damage from the winter and make necessary repairs to prepare for months ahead.

  • Inspect roof for damage (cracking or leaking)
  • Clean gutters and downspouts.
  • Monitor basement humidity.  Use a dehumidifier to maintain a safe, relative humidity.
  • Open valves to outside hose connections.
  • Clean/replace air filters every 2 months.
  • Vacuum clothes dryer lint from duct.
  • Position BBQ 3 feet away from home or other structures.
  • Use surge protectors for valuable electronics to protect them from summer lightning storms.

Recycle or Destroy?
May 26, 2017

The most common way private information gets into the wrong hands is when it’s not handled appropriately, at home or in the work place.  When employees make personal decisions about what is private and what is not by choosing to use their recycling bin, they put your business at risk.  At home, you should also shred documents that contain personally identifiable information to help prevent the risk of identity theft.  Shredding devices are available at most office supply stores.  Make document destruction part of your routine and add Identity Fraud Coverage to your personal policy for only $25.  Reach out to one of our Independent Agents for more details.

Top Tips to a Safe Memorial Day Weekend
May 22, 2017

The unofficial “kickoff” to summer is almost here.  While we hope everyone fun this coming Memorial Day weekend.  Here’s some tips for you and your family for the holiday weekend. 

Tip 1: Food Safety — Refrigerate all perishable food within 2 hours, 1 hour if the temperature outside is above 90 degrees.

Tip 2: Grill Safety — Consumers should thoroughly clean the grill, check the tubes leading into the burner, replace any connectors which can lead to a gas leak and do not use a grill in a garage, breezeway, carport or porch.

Tip 3: Water Safety — Avoid alcohol when swimming or boating.  Wear a lifejacket and make sure young children are supervised at all times when near any water source.  Learn CPR in case of an emergency. 

Tip 4: Sun Safety — Protect against sunburn and heat stroke.  Wear sunscreen, a hat outdoors and a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes.  Drink plenty of water.  

Tip 5: Travel Safety - Do not drink and drive or travel with anyone who has been drinking.  Wear your seat belt at all times and no talking or texting on a cell phone while driving.

You can have fun while at the same time take reasonable precautions to help keep you safe!
