Replace burned-out light bulbs.

Double-check all the lights inside your home and make sure that every single one of them is working. Make an effort to check everything, including the ones in the basement, closets, and attics. Fix the bulbs that aren't working.

Keep access doors clear.

Get rid of the "hidden" areas, particularly on the entryways. Remove all furniture and/or appliances that blocks or partially blocks a doorway. Make all entryways clear and unobstructed.
