Fire Prevention – Protect Your Dream Home and Your Family

Whether you are just beginning to shop for your home plan or you are already living in your dream home, it’s never too late to protect your family with properly placed and installed smoke alarms.

Remember, smoke alarms are only designed to last 7-10 years. If yours are over 10 years old, it’s time to replace!

Help increase awareness in your community about the life-saving benefits of smoke alarms.

Protect your dream home and your family

Statistics to share

  • Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms
  • More than one-third (37 percent) of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.
  • The risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.

As many homeowners seek to reduce their environmental impact when purchasing new houseplans through energy efficient appliances, solar panels, and utilizing eco-friendly building materials like bamboo, sustainable landscaping is also gaining popularity. Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation. Pronounced “zeer-i-scape,” it’s a combination of two Greek words: “xeros” (dry) and “scape” (view). At Modernize , they love the benefits of xeriscaping and how you can incorporate elements of this ecologically sustainable landscaping into the outdoor space of houseplans.
