2019 Summer Tips to Prevent House Fires.
Since it is summer, it is important to make sure your home is safe from any causes of common house fires. A house can easily catch fire for a lot of different reasons but they can all be easily avoided if you take the right steps. Some steps include:
- Electrical Malfunction – Making sure all electrical hazards are looked after and fixing bad wires.
- Open Flame – Making sure to blow out candles before they are left unattended.
- Cooking - Almost 50% of all accidental house fires are cooking related. Pots and pans can easily overheat and cause a fire if the person cooking leaves cooking unattended. Always make sure there is someone in the room while the stove is on.
- Faulty Appliances - An electrical appliance, such as a toaster can start a fire if it is faulty or has a frayed cord. A power source that is overloaded with one or more adapter plug can cause a fire from an overuse of electricity. An extension cord can also be a fire hazard if not used appropriately. Remember to unplug all appliances that are not in use.
