February 2014 Home Maintenance Tasks

Each month in 2014, we’ll be sharing a short list of tasks that you can do
to help take care of your home, vehicle, and family. Consider them a
helpful reminder of what needs to get accomplished throughout the
month to keep your important items protected.

Here’s what’s on the list for February:

Purchase A Fire Extinguisher 

If you don’t have a fire extinguisher in
your kitchen, now is the time to get at least one. Plan a family meeting
and teach everyone in the household when and how to use it. Easy way
to prevent a small kitchen fire from getting out of hand.

Schedule High-Value Jewelry On Your Allstate Insurance Policy

Did your Valentine surprise you with a new piece of jewelry? Make sure it’s
covered! While your Homeowners or Renters policy will cover jewelry,
there are some limitations. Get an appraisal and bring it in so we can
discuss the best course of action for your piece. (This also applies to
artwork, guns, and other collectibles or antiques.)

Seal Up Drafty Windows 

Feel cool air blowing in around windows or
doors? Seal them up now! You’ll be glad you did when those summer air
conditioning bills arrive.

Newlywed Insurance Review

Did you get married this month? Call us
to schedule a newlywed insurance review! We’ll look at your individual
policies and discuss how best to combine them for your new household.

Show The Love!

There is no better way to show your family how much
you love them, then with the proper amount of life insurance! We can
give you a quote on an affordable term policy and help you get this
important coverage in place quickly. We even offer policies with no exam required.

We LOVE our clients! Let us know if we can assist you in any way with
your auto, home, business, or life insurance. Call Matt Elwood at
360-452-9200 or stop by our office at 707 E Front St in Port Angeles.
