“There’s no place like home,” but did you know that there are dangers lurking in your home? No, I’m not talking about dust mites; I’m referring to things like fires and falls – incidents that can be avoided by following these simple tips.
Wall safes are usually smaller than floor safes, are not very difficult to install, and provide convenient storage for important items. Of course, if installed in dry wall, it is not very secure from burglars since they could just remove the entire safe and carry it off to open else where. If you need security and not just fire safety services (which you probably want, or why would you conceal your safe in a wall? Just because its cool?) then you need to install the safe with concrete in a concrete, block or brick wall.
Disconnect your dryer from the flexible duct and clean the back of the dryer and any lint that has accumulated under the dryer. Check the flexible duct and replace it with a new one if it is damaged or has holes. The first part of the process will involve running the flexible cable and vacuum from the inside of the house by your dryer. The second part of the process involves the same thing only from the outside by your dryer vent that goes to the outside.
Check what type of equipment they have. They ought to have at least different cleaning brushes and rods for each type of chimney, including those with mechanical heads; vacuum cleaners; CCTV cameras for inspection; and smoke machines to test a chimney after cleaning. They may need more depending on the additional services they provide.
What size are you looking for? What are you trying to protect? Your home safe should be big enough to fit things like important documents (birth certificates, passports, social security cards, credit cards, wills, tax returns, business papers, insurance documents, photos, etc); digital media (CDs, DVDs, memory sticks, GPS systems, MP3 players, cell phones, etc), and valuables (family heirlooms, jewelry, cash, video/camera equipment, collectibles, etc).
Fires are deadly because they are unexpected and strike when you least expect them to. Although you do not have to tote the extinguisher around with you everywhere you go, make sure one is readily and easily accessible should you require it.
A standpipe system certainly has benefits and these are just some of them. It is an investment in fire safety that is worth more than just a curious glance. This system is usually built into the structure of a building. You want to make sure that it is part of its designs and safety features.
