Longer days, warmer weather, and blossoms everywhere can only mean one thing—spring is in the air!
If an annual spring cleaning of your house is on your to-do list, don’t forget to include your security equipment in your list of cleaning tasks as well. Most people tend to think of spring cleaning as a time to declutter and deep clean, but a few extra tasks around the house can actually make your home safer and more secure.
Read on to find out why you should include your home security on your spring cleaning checklist and tips to keep your devices running smoothly year-round.
Spring cleaning for home safety and security
Spring cleaning is a great time to not only clean and freshen up your home and yard after the winter months, but to maintain your smart home and security devices as well. Doing so will keep them operating properly throughout the year and ensure they work when you need them the most. For example, if too much dusts accumulates in your smoke detector, it can keep it from functioning properly if there’s a fire. Taking the time to dust your smoke detector can keep it functioning at its best.
Spring is the perfect time to do a check-up on your outdoor devices as well. If cold weather has kept you inside, you may not have noticed burned out bulbs in your outdoor lighting or overgrown branches around your outdoor security cameras. Taking the time to check and clean outside can make your house safer and less inviting to burglars.
