Minimize the Risk of Fire at Your Home

As summer gets into full swing it’s important to remember that the increase in heat also comes with an increase of fire risk. While your home may not be in a rural area, there are still fire risks that you can address. To get you started, Disaster Kleenup Thistle DKI Nevada has two great ways to minimize fire risk in your home this summer.

Electrical Items

Electrical fires account for a solid amount of home based fires. And with good reason – they are easy to start. All it takes is a spark from an old appliance to cause severe damage to your home. For this reason, it’s important to check the condition of any and all fans, portable air conditioners and dehumidifiers before plugging them in and putting them to work. If any of the cords have become frayed or damaged throughout a storage period or simply through age, repair the damage or, even better, replace the item.

Clear Your Yard

Loose debris such as leaves and sticks or branches should be swept up and kept that way. However, don’t just brush it to the side of your lawn. Instead, bag it up and dispose of it responsibly. If an extremely hot day hits, you can bet that dried leaves are going to be the rays’ best friends. On top of clearing your yard, if you haven’t done so yet on the suggestions of a previous post, be sure to clear out your gutters.
