Protect yourself from Halloween horrors with these few simple tips for fire and theft as well as the top children's safety tips!
Ghouls, Ghosts and haunted houses are not the only scary things homeowners should be ready for during Halloween season. Fires, theft and vandalism are scary insurance claims that have haunted homeowners in the past. Fortunately, most homeowners’ policies will cover the common losses during Halloween. Here are some tips to help avoid potential spooky insurance claims.
Fire Hazards: Halloween is all fun and games until a ghost or goblin knocks over a jack-o-lantern setting your property on fire. Planning can help make this Halloween a fire safe one. According to National Fire Protection Association, nearly a thousand home fires are caused by Halloween decorations. However, don’t get too spooked, a fire started by a Halloween candle will be covered. But, it is safest to use a glow stick or battery operated candle in a jack-o-lantern.
Top 6 Halloween Fire Safety Tips:
Theft/Vandalism: While trick-or-treaters are in search of candy, beware of devilish unwelcome thieves and vandals prowling on your property. Avoid luring these creepy crawlers to your dark home by leaving your lights on (even if you leave your home). You might also consider motion detection lights for your yard. Fortunately, theft, burglary, and vandalism are covered under ‘most’ homeowners insurance policies.
We always recommend homeowners keep a list of their belongings - be it picture, video or paper lists and what they are worth (if you can) to help making a claim smoother.
