How to Prevent Fires in the Home
While most people think about unplugging appliances to prevent fires in the home, fires often occur in places where you do not truly expect them. One area to be concerned about is the dryer vent. The dryer vent is one space that is prone to fires because lint starts to build up and the heating element is exposed during drying. Taking the right steps to check for signs of fire hazards can make a difference in assisting you in preventing disaster.
Test your smoke detectors often to ensure they are working. Keep fire extinguishers in the home, on each level of your home, so you can quickly find them during an emergency. Check on your appliances to identify any problems with sparking or with frayed wires. Always unplug space heaters when they are not in use. It is also wise to stop using extension cords for heaters and air conditioners. Power surges can happen at any time, which can quickly lead to a fire.
What is Fire Damage Restoration
Fire damage restoration is a process used after a fire has occurred in a home or commercial structure. Fire damage restoration can start once the property is safe to enter. Smoke damage causes extensive damage to homes because it will stain walls, counters, and other surfaces. Proper fire damage restoration deals with smoke, water, and heat damage.

When fire damage occurs, some homeowners try to clean up the home on their own.
