Attention Homeowners: Securing Your Mobile Home

Attention Homeowners Securing Your Mobile HomeWhether you occupy your mobile home permanently or on a holiday basis, protecting your property is first priority. As the threats of damage, theft, and weather conditions are some of the most common dangers of mobile home ownership, there are some precautions that need to be taken to secure your home. In addition, these risks can be mitigated with the right Woodstock Mobile Home Insurance.

Regular Inspections

Regardless of how often you stay in your mobile home, it should be consistently inspected. Any damage or irregularities should be noted and tended to immediately. If you will be out of town for an extended period of time, enlist the help of a friendly neighbor or family member to keep an eye out for you.

Mind the Electrical System

To prevent fires, be weary of overloading the electrical system. This means that no more than three appliances should be used at any time. Further, be sure to have the electrical system checked by a certified professional on a yearly basis and never leave phone chargers plugged in when the unit is unattended, says OBF.

Smoke Detectors

Many insurance companies require the installation of at least one fire and smoke alarm. Not only will this protect your assets and loved ones, but the surrounding occupants, as well.

Tie-Downs

Ensure your mobile home is anchored down with the proper straps to accommodate the dimensions and structure of your home. This will help stabilize your home during high winds, rains, and more.

Winter Drain

To avoid bursting or overloaded pipes, drain the excess water. Don’t forget to drain the water heater, as well!
