Four Tips To Help Prevent Fire In Your Home
A fire in your home can be devastating.
Structural damage, loss of possessions, and displacement from your living space are just a few side effects of such an event. 90% of house fires and 85% of commercial fires are caused by human error.
If You Have Fire Damage In Pompano Beach, We Can Help
Our SERVPRO of Pompano Beach team understands the stress and confusion that goes hand in hand with a loss of any kind. Not only can you experience fire, smoke, and soot damage, your property will most likely also suffer from water damage due to firefighting efforts.
This means it is worth your time to do routine checks around your home or business to prevent fire damage.
Here are 4 places to look for fire-starting risks in your home or business:
The electrical system
Look for damaged wiring, make sure your circuit breakers are in good condition, and be careful of signs of corrosion on any electrical elements.
Check vent stacks on gas powered water heaters, furnaces, and clothes dryers. Check pilot lights for dust buildup or improper installation
Air conditioning/heating systems
Clean/have your interior AC coils cleaned, and replace your air filters regularly. This keeps your system from working too hard and will also save you money on your energy bill.
Keep your stove and oven clean of excess grease buildup, clean vent hoods regularly, and make sure your external (outside) vents are free of debris.
Even with precautions, fires can happen.
