Preventing Fire and Smoke Damage in Your Home

Thursday, June 6th, 2013


Preventing fire and smoke damage in the home is something that many people don’t often think about, but it is an essential aspect of making sure that you and your loved ones are safe and secure. Preventative measures today can also save you from having to deal with very costly home repair bills in the future. Getting soot and smoke out of your furniture, walls and other valuables around your home is no easy task, not to mention there can be some items that you won’t be able to replace. Take it from the experienced professionals at ServiceMaster Restoration by Wills - Stamford, your best bet is to be prepared and avoid the nightmare that fire and smoke damage can cause.

A great place to begin is to make sure all your smoke detectors, which should be installed in every level of your home and outside of all sleep areas, are in working order. To do this, proper maintenance is required. Smoke detectors should be checked once a month and kept free of dust. Also, batteries should be replaced at least once a year or if the detector is emitting a chirping sound. In addition to regularly inspecting your detectors, it is important to have your chimney inspected by a professional at the start of every heating season.

Other important tips to remember are to make sure that there are no clusters of wires or plugs that can be a potential fire hazard, use caution when doing any electrical work in your home and keep at least one fire extinguisher handy in case of emergency (experts recommend one in the kitchen, garage and workshop). It is also important to exercise caution if you are doing any home repair, and to know where the natural gas pipes are in your house before doing any building projects. Additional things to look for when inspecting your home is to make sure that there are no bare light bulbs in closets with clothes and to keep combustibles away from your fireplace and space heaters.
