Homeowners Insurance – 3 Ways To Lower Your Rates Dramatically Within Minutes

There are many way you can lower your homeowners insurance rate. However, I'll touch just three that you can handle within minutes.

1. You'll get a lower homeowners insurance premium if you choose to pay a higher deductible.

For those who do not understand what a deductible is, it is the amount you have to pay whenever you file a claim before the company pays according to your policy terms. $ 250 is usually the smallest deductible selectable in homeowners insurance. By increasing your deductible to $ 500 you'd likely get discounts of up to twelve percent. Increasing it to $ 1000 might get a twenty-four percent discount. What you'll save for each deductible amount will differ depending on the company.

2. You will save much if you get several policies from the same insurance company. Most companies will give discounts between 5% and 15% if you have multiple policies with them. However, this does not make sense in every situation because the total savings made by buying policies from different insurers may be much more than whatever discounts you might get for purchasing multiple policies from the same insurer. The only way to know what's best in your case is by getting multiple quotes and comparing what you'll be given as discounts.

3. Make out some time to visit a minimum of 3 insurance quotes sites that offer quotes on policies. It should take you around 15 minutes. As you visit each site, ensure you give the same information. Doing otherwise will give you misleading quotes. After you've received your quotes, compare them to see which serves your interest best in price / value. …


How To Brush Your Teeth Correctly – Personal Dental Care

Dental care by brushing may date as far back as the Babylonians and their ingenious use of a twig. We are fortunately that we do not have to cut a twig, fray the end and scrub our teeth with such a tool.

Today we have an assortment of tooth brushes available to us for our dental needs. Brushes range from a straight brush with bristles ranging from very soft to extremely stiff, to rotary electric brushes and brushes that use sound waves to blast plaque from the recesses of our teeth.

Our choices are abundant, but the most important thing is that we brush!

You should brush your teeth at least twice a day. A soft bristle will clean without damaging the gums. Also be careful. Many of us think in an over-abundant mode. If 2 minutes is good then would not five or ten minutes be better.

Your teeth are with you for life. After your permanent teeth come in, there are no more natural replacements. Excessive brushing, over time will wear down the enamel and cause premature damage to your teeth. It may also damage your gums. So stick with the two minute limit. That will allow plenty of time to clean your teeth and gums.

We talk about brushing our teeth. But in effect, you are cleaning your mouth. Bacteria forms everywhere in your mouth, not just on your teeth. So take the time to gently brush your gums, the inside of your cheeks and yes, your tongue.

Many brands of toothpaste are available. Any brand that provides you with fluoride protection is usually good. Be careful to ensure that it does not have abrasive cleaning material in the paste. This too, over time and you certainly want to be around for a long time, can cause excess wear to your teeth.

You do not need a large glob of toothpaste on your brush. Do not follow the example of the commercials where they squeeze toothpaste the length of the bristles. Yes this will sell more toothpaste but it will not increase the effectiveness. You only need a small amount, about the size of a pea, too clean your teeth.

To brush effectively:

1) Use a soft bristle brush.

2) Use fluoride toothpaste with no abrasive compound included.

3) Brush for two minutes.

4) Brush your gums, inside checks and tongue.

5) And brush twice a day.

If you will consistently apply these simple rules, along with correct and conscientious flossing, you will enjoy excellent dental care. Look for correct flossing techniques in another article. …
