What Freaks You Out About Your Home?

What Freaks You Out About Your Home?

At Apartment Therapy we believe that a calm, healthy home is a necessary foundation for happiness. That said, there are always aspects of home life that can just freak you out, you know?

The thing that jerks us awake at night is making sure the oven is turned off. Some of our friends get anxious about checking the locks or hearing ominous creaks and squeaks, while still others freak out about keeping the place as clean as a whistle. Mortgages, gas leaks, salmonella, swine flu (kidding!) - there are plenty of ways your home can kind of freak you out. Luckily, most situations only require a quick check of the smoke alarm or turn of the lock to calm you down. So, tell us what possible (though likely improbable) threat or point of anxiety freaks you out at home, and what you do to feel more calm about it.
