How To Keep Your Home Halloween Safe
Keeping your home Halloween safe isn’t particularly difficult or complicated, it just takes anticipating the possible accidents that could occur and safeguarding from them. A few tips for a safe and fun Halloween are:
- Check your walkways first – If you plan to have trick or treaters coming up your walkways, you’ll want to make sure your walkways are safe. The autumn season will see leaves falling from trees along with a few branches, and these can pose a potentially dangerous Trick or treaters can slip and fall on this debris in low-light, and you could be left with a slip and fall incident on your property. Clearing your walkways of all debris before Halloween ensures no one coming up your drive is likely to get hurt.
- Keep things distant and clean – This Halloween is a bit different due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and trick or treating may look a little bit different this year. Some families may opt for setting out candy on the porch instead of handing out to trick or treaters in person, but you’ll want to make sure this style of transfer is safe as well. A great idea is to package up small bags of candy, rather than encouraging kids to reach into a bowl, so contact remains limited. If you are afraid of your candy being stolen, a doorbell camera can keep an eye on anyone coming up to your door.
- Lighting – Proper lighting can make all the difference in terms of safety for trick or treaters and safety against crime. Installing motion sensing lighting around your property can ensure adequate light for those invited to your door, and it will deter those who aren’t.
