Warranty Tip # 4: When it comes to your flooring and protecting it from being damaged by furniture a good idea to consider is to purchase and attach furniture protectors underneath your furniture legs. It’s a great way to keep your floors looking like new.

Warranty Tip # 5: It is important to locate the main water line shut-off valve and don’t forget to locate the shut-off valves on all your individual plumbing fixtures as well. Helpful Tip: A great way to stay one step ahead of the game is to show all your family members how to close off the shut-off valves to all your plumbing fixtures and main water line. You never know when you’re going to have a plumbing emergency. It’s a good idea to always be prepared for whatever situation may occur.

Warranty Tip # 6: This tip is for family homes that currently have natural gas. Always be prepared and know where the gas shut-off valve is by the gas meter. Helpful Tip: This is another action you need to show all your family members how to close the gas shut-off valve. It never hurts to be prepared.

Warranty Tip # 7: A great thing to remember once you’re an Adams Home owner is to check your air filters and to clean or replace them as necessary. It’s one of those tasks you seem to always forget about once you’re a homeowner, but it’s important to remember.
