Happy New Year! Out with the old and in with the new!

Happy New Year! It is a brand new year and that means cleaning out the old and bringing in, or celebrating, the new! January is one of those months that find us all inside looking for things to do while the weather outside is not so pleasant. Holiday decorations are taken down and stored, and we try to reclaim our space by clearing out those things that no longer serve us. While packing your decorations, make sure to look them over for signs of wear.

Did you know light strands older than three years cause most fires? If you do have older strands be sure to check them over for nicks and frays. Do not ever splice your light strands. If you check with your trash hauler you may be able to take those old lights and stick them in your recycle bin! So while protecting yourself from a potential fire hazard and a homeowner’s insurance claim, you are also doing something good for the environment!

While you’re at it, be sure your smoke detectors are functioning and have fresh batteries. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen. Also be sure you know your basic fire safety. By doing these few small things you are helping your family to be safe. Here’s hoping we all have a safe and (claim-free) Happy New Year! From the Poconos to the Slate Belt, I’m here to help you!  Feel free to contact me at 570-730-8607.  Click here to find me on Facebook as well http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michelle-Murphy-Public-Adjuster/186668698043821.
