There are many factors that go into how we advise our clients and risk management is at the forefront. If we can help to prevent something from happening in the first place, it’s worth the conversation so you can avoid the headache of having contractors in your home making repairs and inconveniencing your day to day when it wasn’t planned. We want to ensure that you have the necessary tools and knowledge to protect your valuable assets. Some claims are simply accidents and are unavoidable. Check out some risk management tips from our Director of Private Client Services and how she put some of them into action after her family experienced a significant house fire. In addition, we’re listing an overview of top risk management tips that you can implement to safeguard your property and belongings.
Water Leak Detection Shutoff Device
Installing a water leak detection shutoff device can help you detect and prevent potential water damage. This device automatically shuts off the water supply when a leak is detected, minimizing the risk of costly repairs.
Central Station Burglar and Fire Alarms
Investing in a central station burglar and fire alarm system provides round-the-clock monitoring and immediate response in case of emergencies. This added layer of security can significantly reduce the risk of theft and fire damage.
Steel Braided Hoses and Metal Couplings
Upgrading your washing machine and toilet hoses to steel braided ones with metal couplings can prevent water leaks and potential flooding. These durable hoses are less prone to wear and tear, offering enhanced protection.
A backup generator can be a lifesaver during power outages. It ensures that essential appliances and systems, such as refrigeration, heating, and medical equipment, continue to function, minimizing disruptions and potential damages.
Annual Home Checklists
Regular home maintenance is crucial for risk management. We recommend following a comprehensive annual home checklist that includes tasks such as inspecting the roof, cleaning gutters, testing smoke detectors, and checking for any potential hazards.
By implementing these risk management tactics, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of accidents, damages, and losses. Remember, prevention is key when it comes to protecting your home and belongings.
