Fires are a scary and disastrous situation that can leave your home in various states of ruin. Walls and floors can be scorched. Ash and soot can impact your air quality. Precious family heirlooms and mementos can be lost forever. There’s no way to predict when a fire is going to occur. But there are ways to help prevent the spread and the damage of the fire. If you want to avoid costly fire damage restoration projects, follow these tips to prevent fire damage in your home.The best way to prevent fire damage in your home is to practice proper fire safety precautions. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy. Particularly in places where fires are most likely to occur (i.e., the kitchen). A fire extinguisher can last for twelve years before needing to be replaced, but it’s a good idea to have it checked after six years to make sure it doesn’t need any maintenance or recharging. Many fires start out small and can easily be extinguished before they get out of hand, but only if you have the right equipment for the job.Your valuables should be stored in fire-safe boxes. These storage containers come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. Some are full-size safes that can be bolted down to prevent theft, while others are simple lockboxes that will keep peeping eyes out. When purchasing a safe or box to store your valuables, make sure that the product is verified to protect against fires. Some storage boxes are great at preventing theft or water damage but can warp or fall apart under intense heat. With the proper safety box on hand, your valuables will be safe if a fire does occur.If a fire does take hold of your home, a quick response is the best response. The sooner emergency response units are on the scene, the less damage there will be to worry about. Working quickly after a fire is put out is also important. If the fire damage remains, it can spread and cause more damage than initially expected. Calling a fire damage restoration team, having an inspection, and getting the repair work started as soon as possible helps curb the spread, saving you time and money in the long run.
