Happy Thursday to all of our wonderful customers out there! Here at STOP Restoration we care about the safety of you and your families, and we know that disasters are no fun. In order to reduce the possibility of any happening, it is important to know the many risks and precautions that are out there. This week, we want to inform you on fire damage. Fires are much more common than people may think. In the United States, there are an estimated 358,500 house fires every year, and it can be stated that every 24 seconds there is a fire department responding to a fire within the US. With these statistics, it is important to know the dangers that fires can pose and what damages they can inflict on your property. Being prepared in the event of a fire can make all the difference when it comes to restoring your home and avoiding a fire altogether.
Although you can take all the necessary precautions to stay safe and try to avoid causing a fire, sometimes it is inevitable that one occurs. There are many sources and causes of a fire that you need to watch out for, as they are activities that happen frequently and appliances that are found right in your home. Some very common causes of fire damages can include cooking, smoking, heating, and electronic equipment. When cooking, there are many instances where the temperature can be too high, the stove is left unattended, and flammable materials are left too close to the fire. When it comes to smoking, there are situations where a cigarette is left smoldering, or where someone is smoking indoors. Heating problems are the second leading cause of house fires, and electronic equipment is prone to overloading an outlet.
It is important to be aware of what you can do to avoid a fire, and the situations that are the leading causes of fires. In the event that a fire does occur, the damages can range from mild to severe, and taking care of your home is a priority. There are many factors that can be a part of the repair process for fire damages. Restoring your home after a fire can consist of many steps, such as performing demolition where needed in order to begin reconstructing, and boarding up any damaged sections. It is also important to remove any hazards, such as debris, soot, and lead that can pose serious problems, and to thoroughly clean any possessions left behind. Although making sure your home is repaired and restored after experiencing any fire damages is important, it can be dangerous to do by yourself.
