Making your home a safer place inside and out

Home safety is a significant concern nationwide, not just in Mississippi. Keeping intruders out and creating a safe environment inside is what you want and need. Having the right home insurance to protect you from things that can go wrong is essential to your security, both personal and financial. At Insurance Protection Specialists in Flowood, MS, we work with our customers to customize their home insurance to their particular needs. 

Add a home security system

It has never been easier or more affordable to install a home security system. You can install it yourself without any special tools or skills. While nothing can totally protect you, having a visible home security system is a deterrent, and it may discourage would-be intruders. 

Have motion detection lights

Being able to see who is outside your home is vital. With motion detector lights, if there is any motion from a person or an animal, it will set off the lights. This improves your safety as well, and it can offer you the light you need to get into your home without stumbling around in the dark. 

Remove trip and fall hazards

Falls in the home are one of the most dangerous hazards. More than 25% of older people have a fall at home every year. Keeping halls and stairs clutter-free is vital. Extension cords should not go across walking spaces. Throw rugs are a hazard for people of any age. Have grab bars in the shower to give support if necessary. 

Keep poison out of reach

Poisons come in many forms and can be a severe hazard to both the elderly and the young. Medicine and toxic chemicals should be kept in a high space or under lock and key.
