House fires present a growing threat to Americans, causing an estimated $6.9 billion in direct property damage. US fire departments respond to an average of 354,400 house fires each year, causing an average of 2,620 civilian deaths. Whereas only 27% of reported fires occur in homes, house fires cause a whopping 80% of all fire-related deaths in America. A house fire could flare up for a number of reasons. Approximately half of all house fires are caused by cooking, followed by heating, electrical circuits, and negligence. Fire prevention technology like smoke detectors and fire sprinklers could mitigate or even control fires, but following basic fire safety protocols is crucial for prevention.
Preparation of food in the kitchen is the number one cause of house fires. Whenever frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food, make sure to keep a close eye on hot equipment. If you have to leave the kitchen, turn off the burner or stove. Flammable materials should be kept far away from the stovetop and countertops kept clean of grease. Once finished, double check that everything is turned off and countertop appliances are unplugged.
Equipment like fireplaces, space heaters, wood stoves, and radiators pose a heightened risk of fire. Such equipment should never be left on while nobody’s home or awake. Plug equipment directly into the outlet, avoiding extension cords or power strips. Furnaces, chimneys, and chimney connectors need professional inspection every winter. Finally, installing carbon monoxide (CO) alarms is crucial for home safety.
Electrical fires account for an average of 24,000 incidents each year, with most cases reported in the winter month of January. With only 17% of electrical fires in residential dwellings stopping at the object where they began, electrical fires pose a heightened risk of fire and smoke damage. Electrical failure or malfunction, short-circuit arc, and defective insulation are primary causes of electrical fires. Replacing old or faulty appliances and positioning space heaters away from flammable materials like curtains, clothing, and furniture can prevent electrical fires.
Failing to implement fire safety protocols increases the risk of fire. Risk of injury or even death increases with old age, so extra precautions are needed. Younger children or seniors may need assistance while dealing with high-risk equipment. Store objects like matches and lighters out of reach of children. People with difficulty hearing fire alarms and smoke detectors need alert devices. Knowing how to exit a building or room and removing clutter from passageways is vital. Keeping eyeglasses, hearing aids, phone, and possibly a wheelchair next to the bed could save lives in case of a fire emergency at night.
Once a fire has occurred in a residential home, prompt professional fire damage restoration and smoke damage control are necessary. Fire damage restoration may include procedures like confirming the property is stabilized, removing soot and debris, deodorizing the home, smoke damage restoration, and removing personal belongings too damaged by the fire. Either way, make sure fire and smoke damage restoration is conducted by an experienced professional.
