October is Fire Prevention Month 6 Home Fire Safety Tips 1) Smoke Alarms – These are still a very important addition to your home. Smoke alarms are widely available and inexpensive. Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home and test it monthly. 2) Prevent Electrical Fires – Don’t overload circuits or extension cords. Cords and wires should never be placed under rugs or in high traffic areas. A poor connection between the plug and the outlet can cause overheating and can start a fire in minutes. 3) Keep Plugs Safe – Unplug all appliances when not in use. Follow the manufacturer’s safety precautions and use your senses to spot any potential disasters. If a plug is overheating, smells strange, shorts out or sparks – the appliance should be shut off immediately, then replaced or repaired. 4) Alternate Heaters – Make sure there is ample space around any portable heating unit. Anything that could catch fire should be at least three feet away. Inspect your chimney annually and use fire screens to help keep any fires in the fireplace. 5) Fire Safety Sprinklers – When combined with working smoke alarms, home fire sprinklers greatly increase your chance of surviving a fire. Sprinklers are affordable and they can increase property value and lower insurance rates. 6) Clean Dryer Vents – Clothes dryers often start fires in residential areas. Clean the lint filter every time you start a load of clothes to dry or after the drying cycle is complete. Make sure your exhaust duct is made of metal tubing and not plastic or foil. Clean the exhaust duct with a good quality dryer vent brush to prevent blockage & check for lint build up behind the dryer at least twice a year.

Care and Cleaning of your Window Blinds and Shades The best word I can offer you in regards to cleaning your blinds, no matter what kind you have purchased,..is often. A regular dusting, wiping, or vacuuming of your blinds is the surest way to keep them looking fresh and new for years! By the time the dust has accumulated enough to become dirt, it’s much more difficult to restore to pristine condition.   A few fundamentals; • • •

• Interior Shutters • Vertical Blinds • Faux Wood & Wood Blinds • Honeycomb Blinds • Solar Shades • Woven Woods • Repairs

Never use water-based cleaners on wooden products. Always wipe gently if decide to clean your blinds without removing them from the windows Never use strong chemical stain or spot removers on fabric blinds

A frequent light dusting will save you hours of scrubbing over the lifetime of the blinds. Use a soft whisk broom or lint free cotton cloth. If cleaning is the last thing on your mind at the end of the day and you want no part of it at all, I recommend using professionals to not only clean your blinds, but they can clean your home or property as well. Use local people with local references for the best results.
