Be Prepared This Holiday Season…Protect Your Home from Vandalism, Burglary and Fires!

Written by admin on December 15, 2015 at 3:00 PM.

It’s that time of year. Time for family, food, traditions, shopping, travel, anxiety and much more. And, with all of the busy holiday festivities, special care must be taken to ensure that you don’t jeopardize your family, your home or your business.

Whether you are acting as host this year, or you plan to be away for the big day or even for a few weeks, as a home or business owner, your properties are at a heightened risk of theft, vandalism and fire damage during the holidays. In an attempt to reduce your stress this winter, here are six quick, simple and helpful tricks & tips to protect your home or business and to help you prevent a disaster happening to your property.

  1. Create an emergency preparedness kit: double check your first-aid kit, stock up on water and non-perishable food, make sure you have other essential emergency supplies (flashlight, radio, battery-powered charger for cell phone) and make a family disaster plan to address getting to a safe place and making contact with loved ones.
  2. Carefully select your tree: pick a tree with green needles that is appropriately sized for your home and place it at least three feet away from any item that can easily cause a fire. And, remember to regularly check on and water your tree so that it stays hydrated!
  3. Keep a fire extinguisher handy: fires can happen anywhere, and at any time of the year. Your tree, or other holiday decorations, could overload your electrical outlets creating an electrical failure, your home could be struck by lightning or your stove and other appliances could be left on – all possible causes of disastrous fires.
  4. Child-proof your home: take care of tripping/falling hazards, cover electrical outlets and move lamps and vases away from table edges.
  5. Check smoke/carbon monoxide detectors: make sure the batteries for your smoke and CO detectors are working. And, while you’re at it, test run your gas fireplace – especially if it hasn’t been used since last winter.
  6. Deter property vandalism: to avoid making your house look empty, ask a neighbor to pick up your newspaper & mail and for them to occasionally park in your driveway, put an interior light on a timer, install a motion-activated light outside and make sure your lawn stays trimmed!

What Clients Are Saying About Us

I have full confidence in the team at Stellar and do not recommend that anyone file an insurance claim without them.

The insurance company is not on your side and they are not a good neighbor.

Stellar is on your side and they are in the neighborhood. Call them immediately when damage happens.

Marc C., Miami, FL

David has done multiple claims for our real estate company, as well as for myself and friends. Always exceeds expectations. Highly reliable, and completely on top of his game. Highly recommended.

Yossi K., Brooklyn, NY

Glad I hired them. Stellar Public Adjusting assisted in my water damage claim in my condo from my neighbors pipe. They really know there stuff when it comes to claims. They obtained way more than my insurance company initially offered. A very professional company.

Nicholas P., Miami Beach, FL

Worked with Stellar on a project involving a kitchen flood. They were always there to help & answer all the questions I had - and they reached a fair settlement with my insurance for me. I probably wouldn't have gotten half of what I did without them! I'd easily recommend them to anyone needing a Public Adjuster.
