Shaw’s Residential Division Delves Into Healthy Home Trends



News Image

We spend 90 percent of our time indoors — even before COVID-19. So, it’s no wonder that the spaces where we live, work, learn and play have a significant impact on our wellbeing.- Nina LoCicero, Vice President of Residential Marketing and Digital Commerce

The Residential Division of Shaw Industries Group, Inc. (Shaw) has expanded its Made Smarter. Live Better.™ program to help tap into the growing consumer interest in healthy home products within the built environment. In alignment with National Healthy Home month in June, the company has launched a series of videos, tear sheets, one-pagers and social content, to foster meaningful conversations with consumers about Shaw’s sustainable solutions.

“We spend 90 percent of our time indoors — even before COVID-19. So, it’s no wonder that the spaces where we live, work, learn and play have a significant impact on our wellbeing,” notes Nina LoCicero, vice president of residential marketing and digital commerce for Shaw Residential. “Shaw designs products with both the planet and the human experience in mind. The pandemic has elevated our awareness of how the space we’re in makes us feel and the materials used in our environments — what they’re made of and, in the midst of heightened virus awareness, the importance of safe and effective cleaning habits. ”

The Made Smarter. Live Better. program was developed to help explain how Shaw’s flooring products can address consumer desires to live or work in a space that supports their wellbeing. Made Smarter. Live Better., as a comprehensive approach, focuses on five pillars: Material, Moisture, Sound, Air and Clean — all underscored by a keen focus on design. Through careful evaluation of these pillars and intentional collaboration between Shaw’s Sustainability and Residential Product and Marketing teams, the company’s Residential brands now offer detailed information to meet consumer needs and offer products that best align with their priorities.

“Life is about choices, and consumers today are more conscious about spending and the impacts of their decisions,” says Troy Virgo, director of sustainability at Shaw. “In today’s environment, healthy home initiatives are top-of-mind with consumers. Wellness real estate, where Shaw and its customers operate, is a nearly $200 billion dollar industry. As interest in health and wellness becomes more mainstream, Shaw is well-positioned to help our customers have meaningful, informed conversations with consumers. No matter the specific need, Shaw offers a smarter, better product solution and we design our products to support goals for a clean, healthy home.”

Shaw’s more than 20-year commitment to Cradle to Cradle® principles and leadership position in waterproof offerings gives customers and consumers peace of mind when considering a Shaw product. Through elevated services, like the company’s Sound Advisor tool and myriad education and training opportunities, Shaw has proven expertise in helping its customers be a trusted resource to their buyers.

How to Perform a Security Audit at Your Miami Home – Quickly Locksmith…



News Image

How to Perform a Security Audit at Your Miami Home

If you truly don’t have the time for a security audit or you’re worried you will miss something important, there is always the option of contacting professionals such as Quickly Locksmith to assist you.

How secure is your home really? It’s not always easy to spot potential security vulnerabilities and repairs when you’re running from one task to the next. Setting time aside to evaluate your Miami home’s security is critical.

Just a general check-up once a year is enough to keep you, your family, and your valuables safer.

If you truly don’t have the time for a security audit or you’re worried you will miss something important, there is always the option of contacting professionals such as Quickly Locksmith to assist you.

However, if you would like to perform your own security audit, this guide will show you what to look for.

Home Security Audit Checklist:

Let’s start with the most important kind of security audit, the one that will help protect your home from criminals.

Locks are essentially your first line of defense, so start by checking the locks of all external doors around your home. Are all the locks in good working order? Do you keep spare keys in a safe and accessible place? Depending on how old your locks are, you may want to consider either replacing or upgrading them. As an additional measure, you can look at adding deadbolts to specific doors around the outside of your Miami home.

Do you know exactly who has a spare key for your home? Have you recently misplaced any spare keys? Make sure you know exactly how many key copies exist for your home and where they are located. If you’ve given a spare key to a friend or neighbor, make sure they still have it. If a number of spare keys are missing, you may want to consider changing your locks and starting fresh.

  • Access Points:

Both doors and windows are potential entry points for criminals. Take the time to look at the condition of all windows and external doors. Cracks and general structural weaknesses make it that much easier for intruders to access your home. Don’t forget to look at the window latches too.

  • Cameras & Surveillance:

If you do have video surveillance set up at home, add this to your security audit checklist. Is the network still reliable? Could your camera placement be improved? You could also decide whether upgrading the system is worth your while based on new products on the market. Lastly, make sure there are no trees or other plants that might be blocking cameras.

  • Alarm System:

If your home has an alarm system, start by testing all the motion detectors as well as any door and window sensors. Next, look at the actual panel and whether there are any notifications that need to be dealt with. Lastly, test your alarm system with your security company and make sure your call list for alarm activations is still relevant.

You can now move onto your garage. Start by making sure all locks are in good working order – this includes the lock of any side entrances and interleading doors. If your garage has a keypad, this might be a good time to change the access code.

  • House Numbers:

If emergency services had to get to your home, how easily are they able to see your house number? Clear away any plants that might be covering up your house number.

  • Your Daily Routine:

The final item on your home security audit checklist should be your daily routine. What are your patterns when you leave and arrive home? Do you make a point of closing doors behind you immediately? Does your family know what to do in the invent of an emergency? Identify any vulnerabilities in your daily routine to stay safer.

Now that you’ve identified what you need to do to upgrade the security of your home, you can get in touch with professionals such as Quickly Locksmith to assist you.

Environmental & National Emergency Security Audit Checklist:

Once the general security of your home is taken care of, it’s important to audit how prepared you are for an environmental or national emergency.

  • Fire Risks:

Start by evaluating fire risks and how prepared your home is should a fire break out. If you have a fireplace, does it have a fire screen and when last did you clean the chimney? Do you have fire extinguishers and where are they placed? Where are your smoke alarms situated and are they all still working?

Next, look at your flood risks. Do you have flooding sensors in your basement and if not, should you consider installing them? It’s also important to check the condition of your sump pump.

  • Emergency Supplies & Evacuation:

Having emergency supplies doesn’t mean you’re preparing for doom’s day, it’s just a precaution should there be a national emergency. It’s ideal to have enough water and perishables to last a week or two, as well as a first aid kit. Flashlights and copies of important family documents can also form part of an emergency supply kit. Lastly, it doesn’t hurt to have an emergency evacuation plan in place should anything go wrong.

Enhancing Your Home’s Security:

Now that you have the results of your Miami home security audit, decide which smaller fixes you can take care of yourself and what will require the help of a professional. The next step would be to get a quote from a reputable locksmith such as Quickly Locksmith so that you can budget for your home security improvements.

There is no need to do everything at once though. A locksmith will be able to tell you which repairs and improvements you should prioritize first.
