Home Security Checks For Your New Home

When you turn those keys into your new front door, remember to complete the following security-checks around your new home:


Change the locks on all exterior doors as soon as possible. This practice should be accomplished in every home sale process.

In addition, check that all window latches are in proper working order.

Smoke Detectors

Confirm that all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors work properly. To be certain these safety features are up to date, change the batteries and test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Electrical System

Memorize the location of your home’s meter and electrical circuit box and know how to turn off the fuse.

In addition, be sure you inform others in your home of these items in case an emergency situation ever arises.
