The 3 Most Common Causes Of Fire Damage
Over 300,000 house fires take place every year in the U.S. And this usually leads to almost $8 billion in fire damage each year. These statistics can seem pretty unsettling when you are a homeowner who is interested in the health and safety of your family as well as your property. Taking the time to become educated about the common places in which fires start in the home is imperative. It is also important to share as much information with your family as possible. When it comes to preventing fire damage, everyone needs to be on the same page. Though there may be a few things that you cannot control, there are at least three that you can take an active role in preventing. Let’s take a moment to discuss each.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost half of all house fires are caused by incidents that are related to cooking. One of the prime examples of this is when someone leaves something cooking on the stove, unattended. This is primarily the case if you are a busy mom or dad and you are attempting to take care of kids. This type of multitasking can easily lead to fire damage. Though the fire damage may be minimal in some case, sometimes the fire can spread through the house before you have a chance to take the necessary actions to stop it. When you are cooking, you should do you best to avoid multitasking. Moreover, make sure to use timers and alarms so that you have reminders.
Children Playing With Matches Or Lighters
Another common cause of fire damage is when children play with matches or lighters. Many school age children may not be able to comprehend the severity of their actions. It is easy for them to become startled if they get burned and drop the fire on the floor or near something that’s flammable. This is why educating children about fire damage and the danger that comes with fire is paramount.
