6 tips for a safer home

In addition to seeking comfort in the home and taking care of its design and aesthetics, it is very important to also take safety into account. Accidents at home are more frequent than we think, so extreme precautions in the most dangerous areas, using the multiple technologies available, is a real necessity. These same technologies help us keep our property safe from unwanted visitors. Therefore, we must be very attentive to a number of key points.

1. It is essential to have completely safe and rewired electrical installations. The different functions that power electricity in a home, such as heating, lighting or various appliances, should have an independent circuit equipped with its own switch. Thus, it will be possible to cut off the supply from the main electrical panel, whenever it's necessary.

2. Special care must be taken in the kitchen, particularly with the cooking area. If a gas burner system is still used, pay attention to the flame, because if it is blue and shows some stability it can be trusted that it is in good condition. In the case of glass ceramic hobs, they have the latest safety systems incorporated into them ranging from automatic disconnection to blocking of accidental hob ignition.

3. Take special care in the most slippery areas of the home by covering them with non-slip materials. In addition, in those areas that water is in use, they must comply with what is established in the Technical Building Code (CTE).
