With many of us spending a lot more time at home due to the current environment, it may be a good time to get on top of those cleaning jobs you've been putting off. Here’s a quick checklist that can help you freshen up your home and help protect it against risks of fire or water damage.

  1. Check your roof for damage, and get it repaired as soon as possible.

  2. Check your kitchen, toilets or air conditioning piping. If there are any leaks, do fix it promptly before it leads to further water damage.

  3. Vacuum or clean the lint from your clothes dryer. Built-up lint can cause a fire.

  4. Have air conditioners checked and cleaned to keep them running efficiently.

  5. Remove all clutter. Keeping your home clutter free can help prevent any unintended sources of fuel for flames to spread in the event of a fire.

  6. Clean your cooking appliances including the stove-top, cooker hoods and ovens clean and free of greases.

  7. Check the condition of wires. Frayed wires or cracked cords should be replaced or repaired by licensed electricians.
