When you have an excess of stuff in your home, you will likely feel more stressed and be less able to function efficiently and effectively. Not only that, but your home could be less safe. But not to worry, as you can declutter your home with a focus on making your environment safer. Here is how to do that, courtesy of TAB Insurance Agency, LLC serving the Frisco, TX area.
Eliminate tripping hazards
Clutter in your home can put people at increased risk of tripping. For example, toys, books, accessories, and knick-knacks left on the floor can be in the way and result in a serious problem. Remove extra items, and put away the stuff you keep.
Remove stray electrical corded items
Another problem with clutter is the various electrical items that result in cords dangling in risky spots, such as areas where people walk through rooms and hallways. Declutter extra electrical items that you do not need or use.
Haul away stacks of papers
Newspapers, magazines, books, and any other paper items are commonly stacked up throughout a house. But then they can become safety hazards, so declutter them and get them out of your house. Recycle or donate the papers you do not keep.
Get rid of hazardous material
Containers of paint or extra batteries, as well as a whole host of other hazardous materials and substances, are often in the garage, laundry room, basement, and other areas. Safely remove them from your home.
Do not overwhelm yourself by trying to declutter your entire home at once. Instead, focus on one room or area at a time. If you need information about decluttering, safety or home insurance, feel free to contact TAB Insurance Agency, LLC serving the Frisco, TX area.
