Key Maintenance - Tip #26

“It is the neglect of a timely repair that is costly"

Emergency Preparedness:

You really really don’t want to be figuring any of this out in a real emergency. Do it now. You’ll sleep better and be less likely to ruin your home.

1. Locate the main water shut-off valve. Because busted pipes happen to almost every homeowner at least once. And water damage is value-busting and pricey to fix.

2. Find the circuit box, and label all circuit breakers.

3. Find the gas shut-off valve, too, if you have gas.

4. Test the sump pump if you have one. Especially before the rainy season starts.

5. List emergency contacts.

6. Assemble an emergency supply kit
