Tips to Help You Avoid the Need for Fire Damage Construction Restoration Services

Hello, readers! Thank you for stopping by at our blog page again. Last week, the construction restoration team of All American Construction has started discussing the main causes of fire damage. Today, we will continue with this topic but this time we aim at focusing on the ways to prevent fire-related accidents in your home. Read further, if you want to make sure that you know how to protect your family and property from fire-hazards.

  1. The first and most important thing is to protect your children. You can do this by keeping them away from the cooking area, installing caps over any electric outlets, and of course, instructing them personally on how to evacuate if they notice any fire at home.

  2. Maintain your electrical system on a regular basis – every 3 to 4 years. If your home is older than 20 years, you should book a professional wiring inspection with an electrician annually. The most common reasons for fires caused by electrical system failure are related to loose receptacles or switches, wire insulation drying out, broken wires, dirt and oil-caused overheating, etc. If you smell that something is burning or your lights are flickering, or some of your switches spark hurry up to call a professional because your home is endangered.

  3. Make sure that your smoke detectors are operating properly. About 30% of the homeowners in Fresno, CA who called us for a post-fire construction restoration service admitted that they have forgotten to replace the batteries of their smoke alarm and therefore it didn’t work properly when it was needed the most. Replacing batteries and dusting your system twice a year is the recipe that will keep you and your home protected from fire hazards.

  4. Clean the vents of your clothes dryer. Sometimes the problem may be there.

  5. Do not leave your cooking area unattended and do not keep things that can easily catch fire near a heat source. Install and use your cooking appliances safely.
