There are many things that would come under a list of Dos and Don’ts for keeping a house safe but these cannot be listed in a single article because it would simply be too long. What is listed here are the most important items that most often people forget to keep around in the house. The first on the list of Dos is to keep emergency numbers. These are not only the obvious emergency services numbers but also other numbers such as that for an emergency plumbers in Remuera or the animal control numbers.
These are numbers that people do not really think about because emergencies of these nature do not regularly happen and most of that which you have seen are on the TV so it is very rare that people consider these as numbers that are important for them to have. However, they are important because animals like snakes and raccoon can come into your house no matter where you live and these are animals that can cause serious harm. The next on the list of Dos is to have regular checks of your important fixtures, fittings and equipment on a regular basis to make sure that they keep operating always and that they do not suddenly become stuck or break when you eventually use them after a long period of time.
These are items like the gas and pipe fittings. For these having a professional plumber or a professional electrician come in and inspect your premises is not only important but good for your own health and safety and also to keep your expenses down. Especially sudden and large expenses. The next item falls under the Don’ts category where it is very important that you do not simply ignore the properties immediately and not so immediately around your own property. This is because these neighboring properties may have problems that can impact your own house. Problems like bad pipes or huge old trees are disaster that are just waiting to happen and it is very possible that these disasters will affect you and not the actual owners of the property. This is why you should keep an eye on the neighboring lands and if you see something dangerous, either you talk to the owners of the land or in the worst case lodge a complaint with the police so that they can find the owners and force them to take the proper steps so that you don’t have to worry about damage to your own house. If you keep these three simple items on your mind in general and act on these as a practice, it is very possible that you will be able to keep your household safe and sound for a very long time.
