Mitigating Seasonal Risks
It’s no secret that Alberta’s climate can be particularly challenging to predict, and often poses challenges to our homes. Being mindful of any seasonally specific risks will help you stay prepared and reduce the chance of damage occurring. Things to consider include:
Making sure your home maintains an ambient temperature to avoid pipes freezing/bursting.
Never leaving burning fireplaces or candles unattended
Keeping Christmas trees/seasonal decorations clear of open flame
Ensuring any decorations are properly plugged in and laid out to avoid overheating, and more.
Inspecting your property for signs of leaks, or foundational faults that could lead to flooding
Keeping fires pits and BBQs properly supervised
Outdated appliances/AC unit
The best rule of thumb to avoid major house mishaps comes down to two elements: prevention and awareness. Regularly inspecting your home and taking a few extra minutes to keep an eye on items that could cause a problem may be the difference between maintaining status quo and an unfortunate tragedy. Regardless of the age of your home, whether or not you have children, or any of the many other variables that can pose a risk, staying vigilant can help prevent accidents before they have a chance to start!
