Chantilly Home Safety: Be Careful With That Home Project

According to the BuildFax Remodeling Index, people are doing lots of remodelling projects.

They report that for the 19th straight month, their May index rose.

If you are doing projects on your own, do be aware of safety.  Many preventable accidents happen because basic safety precautions are not taken.  Some of these accidents can be very serious…like falling off a ladder.

The insights include:

Also, don’t forget the safety glasses.  Eye problems are the number one injury as reported by home remodelers, and it is important to realize they can happen anytime.

Here is the video from the NBC website.

As always, if you need a referral for professional help to do a project, contact me and I will provide a few names.

Whether you are buying or selling, or just considering either or both, we are always here for you!

Video on Motion-Detector Lighting On Your Home

If you have thought about having a motion detector lighting system in your Chantilly or Northern Virginia home, this video from Lowe’s is worth watching.

Note that this involves what Lowe’s calls an “intermediate” skill level, and it does require dealing with your house electrical system.  So stay cautious, and if the idea of working with anything electrical is enough to put you on hold with this project, check out a handyman service.  We can provide a few referrals in our area, so call us if you need that.

Motion detectors serve many useful purposes, safety and security being at the top of the list.  They sell for as little as $25 so you can get their benefits without spending much.
