Preventing Risks of Domestic Accidents

A water damage is the most common disaster in housing. it can have different origins (leak, infiltration, or washing machine) and occurs unexpectedly but it is possible to prevent it:

  • Regularly inspect the arrivals and evacuations of water, to detect a possible leak;
  • Check the tightness of the joints around windows and sanitary facilities;
  • Regularly check the connections of the washing machine and avoid running them when you're away
  • Do not go out leaving a window open: in case of storm, the room could be flooded,
  • Ventilate the water daily to avoid moisture;
  • Close the water in case of prolonged absence;
  • Clean gutters and water outlets regularly to avoid clogging;
  • Check your water bills for abnormal consumption and possible leakage.

In case of water damage:

  • Cut the water
  • Contact your insurer

Keep damaged goods for possible expertise

Many home fires are electrical in origin. Simple actions and some good reflexes can help you minimize the risk of fire in your home:                                           

  • Have your installation checked if it is old
  • Regularly check that electronic devices are working properly
  • Be careful not to overload electrical outlets and avoid power strips. Leave enough space around electrical devices to prevent them from overheating.
  • Do not store wood or flammable materials (carpets, net curtains ...) near a heat source
  • When going out, always turn off candles, space heaters or any other electrical appliance that may heat
  • If you own a pool put, shelter the pumps and robots in a dry place
  • In the case of a kitchen fire, never throw away water, contact with boiling oil could create an explosion.

Because burglaries do not only happen to others, it is important to take some deterrent security measures:

  • Secure your front door;
  • Change the lock as quickly as possible in case of loss of keys;
  • Lock all accesses even when you're at home;
  • If you live on the ground floor or in the house, close your windows and leave no valuables visible from outside.
  • Have bars installed in front of windows that do not have shutters
  • Install an alarm or a remote monitoring system
  • For your jewels and precious objects, purchase a safe

In case of prolonged absence:

  • Notify your neighbors,
  • Do not mention your absence on your answering machine or on social networks.
