Fire Hazards to pay attention to.

2/4/2022 (Permalink)

When winter is in full swing, temperatures are cold and we are using our fireplace or space heater to keep us warm, keep aware that these items can cause damaging house fires.  However, there’s always the possibility of a fire starting from something other than this and from what may seem like nothing at all.  While we understand fire damage can be devastating, it’s important to identify and understand what can actually cause the fire damage.  Below are a few changes you can make to your home to help prevent the devastation and damage that comes from a fire.


With holiday decorations, space heaters (we know you use them…) and all of those new electronic presents you received, these items can take a toll on our entire electrical system!  While plugging in your surge protector can be a big help, it can still eventually become too much for your breaker and cause a surge or start a fire. Should this happen to you, big or small, make sure you have trained technicians on-site to assess and repair any of the damage.

Dry Air & Brush

It’s important to also note that the area surrounding your home or business should also remain clear and free of debris and brush. Whether it’s a dropped cigarette or a spark from the firepit, a dry day can turn the entire area into a fire hazard. Make sure to clean up those empty delivery boxes, that the residual fall leaves are all raked up and recycled properly in order to promote less of a fire risk in your area!

If you find yourself experiencing a fire, make sure your first step is to get everyone to safety. When it comes to managing the damage, make sure the team you call is professional and swift. SERVPRO of East Meadow/Westbury is at the ready 24/7, no matter the emergency. To receive assistance for fire damage, get in contact with us by calling 516-334-2927, today!
