Halloween is right around the corner and there are several ways you can keep your home safe in Burlington. By paying attention to the surroundings and knowing some of the potential obstacles, you can make better decisions.
Trick-or-treaters are hungry for candy, and they may not be watching where they are going. It is your responsibility to watch them. Make sure that they are walking, not running. Also advise that they lift costumes that are too long and remove their mask if it is blocking their visibility.
Provide as much light as possible on your property so that they can see where they are going. This includes lighting up your driveway, walkways, as well as your yard. Many kids are going to run across the yard and you want to make sure they can see.
Clean up as much as possible. If you have a lot of debris in your yard or toys around your front door, clean up so that there are less potential obstacles.
Pets who are normally very people-friendly can get nervous around Halloween because there are so many kids and the doorbell is ringing incessantly. This may be the time to keep your pet upstairs or in a different room to avoid problems.
It is a good idea to check your homeowner’s insurance coverage. Anyone who gets hurt on your property could potentially file a liability suit. If you don’t have liability coverage, you could be spending a fortune of your own money.
