When Connecticut residents host an open house, they may think more about their home’s appearance than its safety. However, people may slip or fall in a house if they are not aware of potential hazards. It is usually up to homeowners to ensure that their house is as safe as possible for guests.
While homeowners may not see potential hazards in their house, these may be immediately evident to other people. CRES Insurance Services says that because realtors are knowledgeable about open houses, they can point out places where visitors may slip or fall. Sometimes something as simple as loose carpeting can be dangerous when someone enters a house for the first time. Before the event, all potential hazards should typically be identified so they can be either fixed or clearly marked with a sign. These signs allow visitors to recognize potential dangers and take care.
