Unexpected disaster can happen to anyone at any time. Thankfully, there are some key ways to minimize the likelihood of unexpected homeowner catastrophe.
You never know when the unexpected may occur, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for it and take wise preventative measures.
Here are four homeowner tips for you to avoid catastrophe.
1. Make sure you are properly insured. Having your home properly insured is absolutely KEY to making sure you’re financially protected in case of unforeseen misfortune. So many people either aren’t insured for nearly enough coverage. So it’s really important to work with someone who can provide you with great coverage at a great price.

3. Have your electrical wiring checked. Similar to checking your plumbing, it’s also important to make sure your home’s electrical systems are in working order. Periodically hiring an electrician to examine your home’s wiring can save you money and help keep you safe.
4. Periodically check your smoke detectors. Fans of the hit show “This is Us” are sure to resonate with this tip. And while the show may be fiction, the importance of functioning smoke detectors holds real-world significance. You should not only make sure that you have enough smoke detectors in your home, but also make sure that each of these detectors is properly functioning at all times. An average home should have one detector in the kitchen and one in each bedroom at the very least, while larger homes should have a detector in every room.
