Protect What Matters This Holiday Season

Kentuck Home InspectionThe winter holiday season is here, which means we can look forward to a lot of decorating, parties and possibly some travel during the next few months.

 But with all the hustle and bustle of shopping and celebrating, it’s important not to lose sight of what matters most: the safety of your family and home.

From now until New Year’s, you’ll be expecting guests more frequently and your house will be filled with beautiful, but highly flammable, decorations. These range from the candles on your dining room table to the tree in your living room to the paper decorations on your walls. All of these items can contribute to potentially unsafe conditions in your home.

To Keep Your Family And House Safe And Still Enjoy All The Festivities, Keep In Mind These Simple Precautions:

1. Always Make Sure Burning Candles Are Never Left Unattended . (Blow them out if you leave the room) and are placed at least 12 inches away from flammable objects. Candleholders should be sturdy and placed on a stable, uncluttered surface. [Read more...]

Home Remodeling Tips For Baby Boomers Entering Their Golden Years

Bedford Indiana Real Estate As America’s 77 Million-Strong Baby Boomers Reach Retirement Age, One Thing Is Absolutely Clear — They Are Not Going To Quietly Retreat Into Their Golden Years.

The most active generation in America’s history wants homes that will support their active lifestyles, and homes that will accommodate the challenges boomers will face, from bad knees, to working from home, to taking on grandchildren.

That’s why building and remodeling homes for aging baby boomers represents one of the biggest trends in the home improvement industry today. It’s primarily in response to how baby boomers view themselves, many of whom don’t believe ‘old’ starts until a person turns 80, according to a Del Webb survey. While many boomers see themselves running, cycling, downhill skiing for many years to come, the reality is that aging creates physical challenges, ranging from arthritis to stiffness to balance issues that could result in debilitating falls. Expecting so much of themselves, many are starting to rethink the design of their homes to accommodate their changing lifestyles. [Read more...]

Seven simple steps to senior bathroom safety

jeffersonville in real estateOne in three seniors over the age of 65 will experience at least one fall annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The bathroom is one of the most dangerous rooms in the home for the elderly. Slick floors, small spaces, sharp edges and few things to grasp make mobility difficult and increase chances for dangerous falls.

Unable to complete everyday tasks with the same mobility they once had, many senior homeowners are left with unsafe measures to prevent falling in the bathroom. These may include insufficiently secured towel racks that could fall when gripped for support, shower chairs that are not slip resistant and sliding shower doors that could move unexpectedly when entering and exiting the tub.  [Read more...]
