Keep an Eye on These Garage Dangers

Homeowners insurance in Banning protects your home including your garage, but the garage can sometimes be the source of much unnecessary and avoidable risk. 

When you open your garage door do you look upon it proudly or do you cringe from all that clutter? From gardening tools, old furniture, and used sports equipment, your garage can be the space you have defaulted for your hoarding behavior. This can increase the risk of liability if anyone is to trip and injure themselves on your property. Homeowners insurance in Banning can only take you so far. Here are a few garage dangers that you need to keep an eye on.

  1. Fire Hazards
    Garages are usually the default storage facility for all thing flammable. From gasoline canisters to old paint cans, the garage is like a dormant time-bomb. Be sure to properly store all flammable products in well-ventilated areas in their original containers.
  2. Clutter
    Take a good look at your garage. There are likely things in there you haven’t used in months and will likely never actually use again. If the stuff works, you can have a yard sale and make some money while getting rid of it. If it doesn’t work, get rid of it anyway.
  3. Carbon Monoxide Fumes
    Fumes from vehicle exhaust can quickly build up and seep inside of your home. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a chemical that’s produced from burning fossil fuels and it is colorless and odorless and can only be detected through CO alarms. Never leave your car running in your garage to avoid the fumes.
