February e-Newsletter











Greetings Laura!

This month I would like to share with you some tips on how to protect the things you love as well as a poem to help you enjoy Valentine's Day and the whole month of Febuary.

Kindness can be a postcard,
a phone call, a bunch of flowers,
a word of thanks,
a cup of tea,
a lift in the car,
a trip to the chemist.
A listening ear.

Take Inventory of Your Home
It is important to protect the things we love. What You Own is free software that helps keep track of everything in your home-from artwork to jewelry-and quickly see how much it would cost to replace. Once you download the free software to your computer, you can create a room-by-room inventory that serves as a record that's helpful for determining how much insurance to purchase and when settling insurance claims. Users can even add images and receipts. You can learn more about this software and also download it at
Home Maintenance Tip
Prevent Plumbing Problems
When your home's plumbing system is working well, all is right with the world! Here are a few maintenance tips to help you avoid plumbing problems that can literally soak you.
•  Use strainers for sink and tub drains to prevent clogs.
•  Refrain from flushing anything other than toilet paper down the toilet.
•  Do not pour grease down drains.
•  Close foundation vents in the fall and winder seasons to prevent pipes from freezing.
•  If your house is going to be vacant for an extended period of time, leave your heat on low and wrap exposed pipes.
• A sagging ceiling may be a sign of a severe leak. Other signs of leaks may include water spots or dark spots on walls and ceilings, or rusty spots underneath sinks, the water heater, and clothes washer.
