How To Prevent Home Fires
  Feb 24 2022

How To Prevent Home Fires

Home fires are a daily reality in the U.S., with statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) showing that an estimated 358,500 home fires occur every year. It is also estimated that nearly 4,000 Americans die every year in home fires. Losing your home or a loved one to a home fire is a scary thought, but there are measures you can take to prevent home fires.

At Tidal Wave Response, we’ve compiled practical tips that will help you prevent home fires and protect your family and home.

Inspect Your Heating Systems Regularly

Heating systems such as space heaters, furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, and fireplaces are among the leading causes of home fires. Failing to maintain heating systems regularly and leaving them unattended significantly increases the risk of fire. It’s advisable to have all the heating systems you use in your home inspected regularly to ensure they’re working properly. You should also keep flammable items away from heating sources.

Pay Attention When Cooking

Cooking-induced fires are among the main causes of home fires in the U.S. If you’re cooking, ensure you avoid interruptions and never leave the kitchen unattended when cooking any kind of food. If you must leave the kitchen, turn off the stove or let someone else watch over the food. You should also clean your cookware to prevent grease and fat from building up over time.

Store Flammable Products Safely

Most homes are full of flammable products which tend to combust when placed close to heating sources. You should ensure flammable items such as household cleaners, hand sanitizers, paints, and cosmetics are stored in a cool dry place.

Practice Safe Habits

You can prevent a home fire by following these rules.

  • Properly extinguish smoking materials
  • Never burn candles near anything that might catch fire
  • Position your grill or fire pit away from anything that might start a fire
  • Keep barbecues clean and well maintained

Use Surge Protectors

Electrical voltage spikes or surges carry a risk of electrical fires, especially when you've not installed surge protectors. You should consider installing a whole-house surge protector to safeguard your plug-in electronics from electrical surges.

It’s also a good idea to inspect your electrical wiring from time to time to check for signs of damage. Exposed cords can come into contact with water and start a fire. 

Install Smoke Detectors in Your Home and Inspect Them Regularly

Smoke detectors provide an early warning of a potential fire, allowing you to catch the problem before the situation gets out of hand. Ensure you inspect your smoke detectors at least once every month to ensure they’re in good condition.

Keep A Fire Extinguisher in Your House

It's recommended to keep a fire extinguisher on every floor in your house in case a fire breaks out.
