Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MINNEAPOLIS - Aug 30, 2017 - Norcia Insurance Consultants, a company that offers insurance claims help for Twin Cities residents, offers a list of hazards local area homeowners should avoid. The summer is not yet over and there are still many hazards around the home that could pose a threat. The home is supposed to be a place to feel safe and secure. However, there are a few seasonal dangers that can catch homeowners off guard and cause damage to the home. As a public adjuster for the Twin Cities, Norcia Insurance Consultants is all too familiar with these types of hazards and would like to provide a rundown of what they are and help offer awareness.
Everyone uses air conditioners in the summer. However, many units are either dirty or not up to date. This can not only cause poor air quality but high energy costs and fire hazards as well. Make sure your AC is cleaned or serviced at least once a year and that your filters are replaced often.
Also, this time of year many appliances can be plugged in at a time. Additional strain from AC units can potentially cause outages, blackouts and even shorts. More appliances combined with soaring temperatures increases the chance for a short circuit, thus creating the danger of a house fire.
As local residents spend lots of times outdoors during the warmer months, windows and doors can be left open. When opening the home up fresh air, it is also essential to ensure it is not also opened up to unwanted guests. Property crimes increase during the temperate months so it is important to make sure the home is secure.
As we see in the southern parts of the county, this time of year rain and extreme weather can flood basements and homes causing substantial damage. Keep your eye on the weather and make sure your home, including the roof and basement is prepared for heavy rains.
And, if you do find yourself in the undesirable position of having to deal with your insurance company alone, hire our public adjuster in the Twin Cities area.
