The Most Common Home Insurance Claims During the Holidays
Avoid Mishaps This Festive Season
The festive season is a time for peace, harmony, and celebrating with loved ones. Yet, all too often, accidents happen that quickly ruin the fun. Keeping hazards at bay during the holiday season is a lot easier when you know what threatens your festivities. Take a look at these top home insurance claims and how you can avoid costly mishaps.
You’re cooking up a storm in the kitchen for your holiday guests. Creating a feast is no small fete and it comes with a whole lot of risks. Kitchen fires are especially prevalent during the holidays with more people cooking several different dishes all at once. Make sure that you remove flammable items from around the cooker, keep pets and children out of the kitchen, and never leave the house with the oven on.
Presents under the tree make for a pretty picture but they also tempt thieves. Brand new items are ideal for thieves – and every house has them. Make sure that your tree and gifts cannot be seen from the street and be sure to add presents to your home inventory so they are covered.
Whether grandpa had too much eggnog or the holiday lights tripped up your aunt, accidents can happen over the holidays. Injuries are never ideal around the holidays. To avoid anyone from getting injured, make sure your guests pace themselves with alcoholic drinks, remove tripping hazards from the house, and never let anyone drive home drunk.
