5 Tips to help protect your home from a water damage.

1. Check hoses and faucets on a regular basis. Hoses that lead to your washing machine, dishwasher, and refrigerator on an annual basis, looking for cracks or water leaks. Replace all hoses every five to seven years.
2. Check showers and tubs. Make sure the caulking around your shower(s) and tub(s) are watertight. If you see cracks in the caulk, replace it. Caulk is very inexpensive and can prevent water from seeping into your floor.
3. Know where and how to shut off your water main. If a pipe suddenly bursts in your home, it is important to know how to shut off the water supply. In most situations, shutting off the water main will stop the flow of water. To order free water main shut off tags, click here.
4. Install floor pans. Consider installing floor pans under your appliances. While they can’t protect you from a catastrophic leak, they can prevent damage from small slow undetected leaks.
5. Consider purchasing point of leak water alarms. Water alarms work like smoke alarms. When water is detected in a specific area, an alarm is triggered, warning you of a water threat. These sensors can be placed in basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, or next to the sump pump.

How to Put Out a Grease Fire
• Turn the Heat Off - Don't try to move the pot. You might accidentally splash yourself or your kitchen with burning oil. And that would be bad.
• Cover the Pot with a Metal Lid - Fire cannot exist in the absence of oxygen. With the lid on (and the heat off), the fire should quickly consume all the oxygen and put itself out. Use a metal lid since glass will shatter.
• Pour on Baking Soda - Baking soda will extinguish grease fires, but only if they're small. It takes a lot of baking soda to do the job.
• Spray the Pot with a Class B Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher - This is your last resort, as fire extinguishers will contaminate your kitchen. Still, it's better than the alternative if the fire is getting out of control.
• Get Out and Call 911 - If the fire does break out of control, don't try to be a hero. Get out and find a phone to call 911.
Whatever you do, DO NOT do the following:
• Do Not Use Water - Pouring water can cause the oil to splash and spread the fire. The vaporizing water can also carry grease particles in it, also spreading the fire.
• Do Not Move the Pot or Carry It Outside - Throwing the pot outside might seem logical in the frenzy of the moment. But trying to move the pot might splash burning oil on you, your home, and anything outside. 
• Do Not Throw Any Other Baking Product On the Fire - Flour might look like baking soda, but it won't react the same. Only baking soda can help put out a grease fire.
