What Can Cause Fire Damage?

There are several factors that can cause a fire inside your home. The following are several examples of how a fire can start within your home:

  • Electrical – Fires can easily begin from any source of electricity. The fact that there is no flame involved does not mean that there is no risk present. Hot plugs, sockets and blown fuses, may overheat and start a fire. Exposed wires may cause a spark, leading to a fire. Make sure you check that your outlets are not heating up.
  • Smoking – A simple cigarette can cause an inferno to start in your home. Most fires start because the cigarette is not put out completely, or falling asleep with a burning cigarette between your fingers. Always use proper ashtrays, and make sure your cigarette is fully extinguished.
  • Candles – A tiny candle flame can cause a major fire throughout your home. Most candle-related fires start due to drafts that push the flame to ignite combustible items and tilting candles that are not placed in proper holders. Always make sure that each flame is carefully put out before you go to sleep or leave your home.

What Measures Can You Take to Prevent a Fire?

There are a few things you can do to at least make sure that your home is safe. You can unplug any electrical devices or equipment when not in use, make sure your sprinkler is properly functioning, and that your smoke detectors are working properly as well. All it takes is a few simple precautions, and you can at least ensure that your home is abiding by the correct safety procedures.
