Did you know that, according to the Insurance Information Institute, a house fire occurs in the United States every 87 seconds? While not every fire can be prevented, many could have been avoided or contained with the right monitoring equipment, knowledge, and tools. The right measures can significantly reduce fire damage, and that's where SERVPRO® steps in.

Preventing Fire Damage

Tips from SERVPRO We believe that a little time spent on preparation can save you the cost and stress of fire damage restoration. Here are some tips to help Central Seattle residents avoid the need for house fire cleanup services:

  1. Holiday Season Fire Hazards: While the holiday season is a time of joy, it also poses fire risks, especially with Christmas trees. Natural trees should be watered to prevent drying out, as heat from lights or a spark can lead to a fire. Artificial trees should be made from fire retardant materials, and decorations should not overheat or come into direct contact with tree limbs. Lights hung outside should use UL-approved cords and waterproof weather cases around extension cord connections. Don't let fire damage ruin your holiday hopes.

  2. Candle and Space Heater Safety: Space heaters can be a great way to warm a cold area in your home, but safety is paramount. Look for heaters that can be plugged directly into a wall outlet, avoid using extension cords, and periodically check the cord and plug for overheating. Keep flammable materials at least 3 feet away from the unit. When using candles, never leave them burning unattended, especially if there are pets or children in the home. Heat from candles can easily ignite nearby fabrics or flammable materials.

  3. Smoke Alarms and Escape Plans: Install smoke alarms in each room of your home and test them monthly to ensure they are functioning properly. Develop a family escape plan for evacuating the house in the event of a fire, including a designated meeting point, even for pets. Regularly practicing this plan can save lives.
