From switching off the lights in an empty room to having your leaky faucet fixed, there are plenty of ways to reduce the carbon footprint of your home.Want to share in the spirit of giving? Clear out those closets and throw out all that trash you have stored in your garage and basement. Donate all the clothes, books, toys and machinery which you’ve outgrown. It will give you more space within the house, while putting a smile on somebody’s face.
- Make ‘Safety first’ your mantra

- Follow zonal laws

Instead of starting the year on a bad note, why not use 2018 to educate yourself about home violations in your county/city?Before planning any home remodeling, ensure you select a contractor who is up-to-date about all of the housing laws and zonal regulations of your locality of residence. Do your own homework and build homes that are people and neighborhood-friendly.
- Make maintenance bi-annual
