Home safety...

WE can look at this in many ways.

The way I am  looking is the result of a friend.

Many of us have throw rungs scattered around the house.

My friend was selling a piano and had buyer come into the home to see it.

The throw rug was on a hard wood floor with no tacky back.

 

Yup, the buyer slipped and fell.

Lucky for both, he was not hurt, but it could have been devastating financially.

 

The one issue I tell my clients is to   "GET RID OF THE RUGS".

Have a tacky back rug at the entrance or even outside the door, but the rest are a  hazard.

Have a buyer fall in your home because of the rugs and they may own the home without paying you a penny!
