With the temperatures heating up, it is no surprise that the Summer season is when we see more home fires. Summer fires happen for a variety of reasons, but all end in the same way, with fire cleanup and restoration. Below Restoration 1 Conroe will discuss ways to prevent fires this Summer and what to do if you do experience a home fire.
Keep an Eye on Outdoor BBQs and Fires
Most Summer fires are cooking related. Summer BBQs and late-night bonfires are a common occurrence. Friends and family come over, and people often become distracted and neglect their grills and fires. Fires can quickly spread and grow out of control. Keep an eye on cooking indoors and outdoors. You should also never leave a fire unattended.
Obey Burn Bans
Fires are a fun way to roast marshmallows, tell stories, and make smores, but it can also end in a home fire. If your region is under a burn ban, never burn, even if it is contained. If the area you want to start a fire is very dry, never attempt to start a fire.
Supervise all Fireworks
Fireworks cause uncontrollable fires more than you would think. If the area is dry or a firework hits your home, it can cause a fire to start. These fires can grow quickly and envelop your home. Always supervise any fireworks and ensure they are in a safe area away from your home.
Have your HVAC System Serviced
HVAC systems are a common cause of home fires. Before the Summer hits, it is smart to have your HVAC system serviced. They will be able to find any electrical problems and repair them before a fire starts!
