There is nothing more fun than getting a home ready for Halloween! We recently shared an article about dressing your home up for Fall, but Halloween adds another element…PEOPLE!
There are hundreds of people that will be visiting your home in the coming days for tricks and for treats. We found an article from Integrity Insurance that highlights the Top 10 Halloween Safety Tips. We found these tips to be practical and extremely helpful in preventing any kind of mishap this Halloween.
Among the ten shared safety tips, we thought we would share our favorites:
- Avoid candles — we also suggest avoiding candles for your Halloween bash; instead use witches hats, skeletons and spider webs to set the mood
- Clean your yard — remove leaves and brush to create a clear path to your home for trick-or-treaters or party guests to help avoid a liability
- Driving defensively — Halloween is the deadliest day of the year for young pedestrians.+ Keep your kids safe by having them only cross at designated cross walks, wearing reflective tape if trick-or-treating in the dark and staying close to an adult. And drivers, pay extra attention to your surroundings
Have a happy (and safe!) Halloween!!
These are some great things to keep in mind as we prepare our homes for the Halloween festivities!
