Home Care Basics
You will need a few basic tools and supplies for everyday use in keeping your home in tip-top shape. Get a small toolbox, stock it with these items, and keep it in a handy place. You should also have a few standard power tools such as a rechargeable drill. Other tools can be rented or purchased as you need them.
Every homeowner should have at least one fire extinguisher. Each member of the family should be familiar with its location and operation. Have it checked annually to be sure it functions properly and is fully charged. Be sure you and your family know how to turn off electricity, gas and water, in the event of an emergency of any sort.
First Aid Kit
Keep a home first aid kit in a convenient location. Buy and keep with it a booklet on first aid and home safety. Check it regularly to be sure it remains fully-stocked.
