Halloween Safety Tips for Your Home

Don’t have a scare this Halloween; keep all your Halloween visitors safe with these home safety tips.

Halloween is right around the corner!  This year, make sure your home is prepared for trick-or-treaters, party-goers, and any other visitors.  Use these home safety tips to make sure you have a truly happy Halloween.

Walking Hazards

Before Halloween night, take the time to clear any walking hazards from your front lawn and the walkway leading to your front door.  Walking hazards include protruding rocks, decorative lawn ornaments, and other small items on the ground.  Additionally, if your front yard is covered with leaves, make sure you rake them up before guests start arriving.  Leaves can be slippery and can also conceal other potential dangers.


Another way to ensure that your guests make it to your front door safely is to make sure your front yard is properly lit.  Poor lighting can increase people’s chances of falling, so make sure you offer your guests adequate lighting.  Keep the light by your front door switched on and use small lamps or a string of lights to illuminate your pathway.


If you want to decorate your home with jack-o-lanterns, avoid lighting them up with candles.  Candles increase your chances of a house fire and they could be extremely dangerous if anyone gets too close.  Prevent these risks by using electric candles, tea lights, or other non-flame lighting sources to decorate.  Additionally, if you want to decorate your home with props, then make sure you use ones that are made of light plastic or rubber.  This way your  guests will be okay in the event that a decoration falls down on them.

This year, keep all your Halloween visitors safe by keeping these home safety tips in mind.  Another way to make sure your home and your loved ones stay safe is to have the right policy to fit your needs.  To find the right coverage for you, contact the experts at ISU-Wissink Insurance in Culver City, California.  Our dedicated team is ready to assist you with all your personal and commercial insurance needs.
