There has been a significant rise in fire accidents as compared to previous years. Most of the fire accidents are caused because of ignorance and unawareness. Home fires have become very common because people do not bother taking prevention steps.

However, fire accidents cause massive destruction of goods and place. It takes a lot of time to restore fire damage. Although we cannot avoid serious fire accidents, we can prevent minor fire damages at home by simple preventive measures.

How to prevent fire accidents at home?

  1. Do not keep candles burning while sleeping or going out of a room. Most people leave candles burning at night, leading to some serious fire accidents like curtains catching fire.
  1. Get your chimneys and heating equipment checked regularly by a professional. You should consult an experienced professional for an annual check-up before using this equipment. In many cases, a choked chimney can lead to fire accidents.
  1. Make sure your fireplace is well set before the winter season. You should keep a glass or metal fire screen to prevent sparks or rolling logs from coming out of the fireplace.
  1. Keep all the fire lighting gears like matches or lighters away from the reach of children. They should be kept in a secure place and try to use lighters with child-resistant features.
  1. You should get your coal stoves, fireplaces, chimneys, and furnaces inspected and cleaned annually by professionals.
