Get your house ready for spooks, tricks, and treaters.

It’s that time of year again. Halloween is right around the corner, and many of us have kids that are preparing their costumes for trick-or-treating. Whether you’re hosting a party for friends and family or waiting for trick-or-treaters, make sure to prep your home. Doing so can prevent issues from arising on this spooky night.

Light it up

Make sure that guests can see the way to your home. As the nights get darker, proper lighting is essential to prevent guests from tripping up or bumping into your property. While motion-sensor lights are great for security, ensure that you leave a steady, exterior light on at all times on Halloween night.

Make small fixes

Have an unstable railing? A crack in the concrete on the path? Take the time to mend these issues now so that your guests have a safer journey to and from your home.

Prepare the pets

A lot of visitors and a house full of guests can often disorientate cats and dogs. Before the festivities begin on Halloween night, shut your pets away in a safe and comfortable place. All it takes is a few seconds for Fido to bolt out the door and knock over children or their parents.
