During the month of March, you may need to make a few adjustments to keep your home running smoothly and your family safe. Here are some of the issues to put into consideration:

Create a Severe Weather Plan

Safety should always be a major concern when it comes to your home. During the month of March, make sure you create a severe weather plan to be safe. Designate a safe place in your home that can be used if bad weather occurs. Stock the space with basic emergency supplies and throw in some extra batteries and a flashlight.

Change Batteries in the Smoke Detectors

Don’t forget to change the batteries with changes in seasons. A change in season will likely lead to faster wearing of the batteries. Take time to change batteries in all carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. While doing so, you will get to inspect every area, know what is working, and what may need further attention.

Review Your Insurance Discounts

Check whether you are getting all the insurance discounts you qualify for. This is a perfect time to call your insurance provider, review your policy, and find out if there are any changes that need to be made. Any changes in pricing or requirements should also reflect in your insurance policy agreement.

Review Your Credit Report

March is National Credit Education Month, which makes it a perfect time to check your credit report. A visit to the Annual Credit Report Website will help you generate a free copy.

Bottom Line

March is a perfect time to review your home insurance and maintenance to ensure maximum safety. Simple actions like having a severe weather plan, changing batteries in the smoke detectors, reviewing insurance discounts and reviewing credit report will help you keep the things that matter in check.
